Digital drawing in Krita. Fast, loose monochrome rendering using the Ink_tilt_20 brush. Well, loose everywhere except in the mouth area where I went back and forth in black and white (I used white as an eraser). I wouldn't say the likeness is there but it's close enough. Digital is cool and all but doing a full portrait in color still takes quite a bit a time (compared to the real media). An ink drawing takes a mere 5 to 10 minutes. Even with digital, you can do loose, quick sketches, and that's a good thing. I tend to work small, not zooming in unless I really have to. That speeds up the process even more. Of course, nothing beats working with a pen on real paper but then, you have to scan the thing. Reference and other renderings: Would someone like to draw my SO? His smile lights my world.

Digital drawing/painting done in Krita. I left the sketch in there underneath the paint layer. Reference photo is right here along with other renditions: A cool test photo that my grandmother took of my profile.
That's the sketch in blue pencil all by itself.

Digital drawing/painting done in Krita. Reference photo: I've always thought this self portrait would make a fun painting or drawing. Would anyone like to try? I'd love to see your style.
Sketch I've made prior to painting. Clearly, it was not quite right.
Digital drawing/painting done with Krita using the Basic_circle_wet brush. You can have a good look at the reference photo here: I couldn't decide between these two pictures of me, so it's up to you guys!
Yeah, that's the sketch I did before putting the color. The sketch is just a guideline since there's usually always something that's not quite right.

Quick sketch in pen on card stock. For the reference photo, go to I pretty much detest my picture being taken. But once a decade or so there's one image I like. Anyone want to draw me?

To check out the red beard in technicolor, go to The folks in r/beards suggested I crosspost my yeard update here!. What's a yeard? Anyways, this is "pen-and-ink" on card stock. This sketch was done super fast to keep it super fresh.
If you want to see the orange hair and the refence photo, please go to I would love to see an artist representation of me! Much appreciated in advance. This is very quick sketch in "pen and ink" on card stock. I love this type of sketches where you don't erase and just restate lines until they kinda look right. It makes up for a very dynamic rendering even if the likeness is not always there.
