I've always wanted to be able to draw portraits that actually look like people rather than just oddly pulled together sock puppets. This is my first attempt and I must admit, I find it very challenging but I'm going to keep plugging and see if it's possible to improve at all.
I did this in pen and I think I may try with pencil next time. Perhaps it will be more forgiving. :-)
