Just so you, my adoring public can see, I took a craptacular picture with my camera phone so you can compare with the actual drawing. Again, it's a crappy picture...it was MUCH cooler looking in real life.

Portraits are THE hardest thing and for me, the better I know a person the tougher the drawing is to attempt. Because you KNOW them, you KNOW what they look like, they ALWAYS want to see... basically for me the tension level is through the roof. Still...better to learn to draw something HARD because then all the rest will be easier. Or something. Anyways... I've GOT to improve because hands down, portraits are my weakest area.

Not timed...maybe 20-25 minutes.

The proportions are off, I got lost in the shadow and should have been more careful in laying out the planes of the face. As is, it's a bit of a mess I think.
What do you think, sirs?
