Did this quick 12 x 9 sketch using a photo ref from Optika Portraits (actually from the Optika Portraits FaceBook page) with the photographer's permission. Started with a piece of soft pastel then using a charcoal pencil to define some details and edges. Didn't capture the resemblance though.

This started as a quick practice sketch of a ConceptArt Forum member on a 9 x 5.5 sheet of 90lb drawing paper primed with colourfix (painting area is 7.5 x 4), but somehow I kept noodling with it and ended with this result. Done with mostly W&N with a couple of Rembrandts.
