I used severeal pencils however, the 6B was not dark enough so I used pen for the darkest tones in the drawing. I wanted to capture his sad expression on his face.

Thanks for checking out the post!

Jake suddenly realizes the strength it takes to allow himself to be sad, the insurmountable love it takes to experience true loss.

Wow! This portrait look amazing! I very like your drawing technique!

Really nice. You absolutely captured his sad expression. Great piece

That is absolutely Top portrait Ian, love the eyes, they are full of thoughts and worries. You are great in pencil works. But I still remember your Oil paintings, they are stunning, I hope you will present one day one of your Oil painting too :)
