Hi guys! How are ya today?

Today I had a bit of a ruff day so I decided to try and bring some steem (haha steem) down by drawing a portrait. I am rather good at drawing portraits...or so I think :D So making them relaxes me a bit :)

This is the finished sketch :

Shading done, I wasn't sure if he needed any background, but decided he does, becasue I wanted the face pop a bit more.

Background added, but I was thinking he needs something more...

In my mind the white pencil worked way better :D I really wanted to pop some feautures of his even more, I had a white watercolor pencil so I gave it a try. Well it didin't want to work with this paper. I will keep this in mind next time :D

Thanks for checking this out, I hope you learned something, I definately did. Have a nice day everyone!
