The beards took longer than expected but am pleased. I want to thank the photographer for allowing me to use his work as reference: fav.me/d4npk77
I like to experiment with lines and shadows so I made a few changes from the reference photo but hope I still got his likeness in the process. I used a 2B mechanical pencil on Canson Plate/ Smooth paper and spent roughly 40 hours on it.
Thanks for watching, everyone. Cheers!
