Albert by jjkiefer Albert by jjkiefer
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!

Thank you.  It takes a lot of practice, patience, and observation.  It also depends on the paper and pencils you use.
Welcome to DA!  Cheers!
