Oh, thanks :) I consciously strive for simplicity in the portrait, sometimes it really works.

This is brilliant! You're able to to portray such likeness with just a few simple strokes of the pencil. /RESPECT

Amazing job on his likeness! His face, in my opinion, can be a hard one to portray but you've done excellently c:
And I love the shading, too. :heart::aww:

Thanks for fav! It was really difficult to draw his portrait at once. I didn't have enough patience for his hair, so he seems blond :)

Haha, patience isn't something I have a lot of either, so I know exactly what you mean. On the contrary, though, I think that lack of patience did you a favour! The absence of intense shading in the hair allows room to see your (in my opinion, wonderfully stylised) linework, and can also be easily taken for light shine, which helps to set the whole picture off just that little bit more.

You're welcome! I look forward to seeing more of your work in the future. :)!
