There was no money for Christmas this year so I wanted to draw a portrait. I scoured my files and found this one. But it's from when he was still wearing glasses so I decided to leave them off in the drawing. I printed it off in black and white to make it easier to see the shadows and highlights.
It was the quickest portrait I've ever done. I worked on it on three separate days, that's it! I finished roughing in both faces and the hands before calling it a night.
I finished it the day before Christmas Eve which was the last chance I would have had to work on it. Whew! I bought the frame at Goodwill some months back. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it, but I loved it and it went to good use.
I messed up on Adam's right eye. I tried to fix it several times but it just wasn't having any of it. Seems I always mess up an eye on these portraits. He said he couldn't see it, even after I pointed it out. But the rest of the face, I like.
And for me, I think it turned out well too. But for some reason, I put this dark shadow under my hin, on my neck. I have no idea why I put it there. :o\
