Portrait of a Man - Day 50 of 75

A portrait of a man done from a photo in the WetCanvas Reference Library.  He is a ruddy faced, rugged looking guy with a grey beard.  He would look at home on a fishing boat.  I really enjoyed doing this portrait and want to try a few more.


  1. You are so brave to do a portrait directly in ink. This came out good. I've seen this guy before. I think he was one of the pictures for one of the WDEs I did.

  2. He was on the WDE. I was a little nervous starting it directly in pen, but I'm using one of the pens that are starting to wear out, so my first lines weren't all that dark, plus he isn't anyone I know so I didn't have to worry about getting a likeness, although I think it does look like him. I have saved a few other photos from the reference library to do portraits from. I want to start doing more poeple.
