Portrait done on classic yellow post-it note. I kinda made the youngster look like an older Asian woman.
Anyways, here's the reference photo: Anyone care to draw/media of choice, 5 year old me? Circa 1987 all styles welcome. Its my fav childhood photo.
This is a pencil sketch/drawing on post-it note. I kinda like the post-it notes since I can stick a bunch of them on one single piece of paper for archival instead of keeping a bunch of 9x12 inch drawing paper pages. Downside is that post-it notes are very slick and it's super easy to smudge the graphite all over the place.
Anyways, here's the reference photo: This is me. Would love to be someone's muse-for-a-day.

My approach: sketch and then paint using one single layer. Not by choice as I wanted to block using a layer underneath the sketch but, for some reason, I didn't sketch on a transparent layer. Oops!
More renditions of Megadodo (not by me): Very recently started drawing in this subreddit, would love one of me :)

Not to gloat or anything but unlike many digital artists, I just use one layer in Gimp (just kidding as I usually like to at least block on a different layer). Did a quickie sketch and then went to town with a hard brush. I did switch to grayscale because it's just easier. The piece has that very unfinished and amateurish look that I kinda like.
For more drawings and paintings from the above reference photo (not mine): I'm turning 35 this week, so I took some pictures for posterity. Here's one - this is me.
Well, happy birthday then!
I simply used a hard brush in Gimp without even trying to blend anything. Yeah, I switched to grayscale because, well, it's just plain easier.
Other paintings/drawings (not by me): Would reddit care to draw me with newly purple hair?
Hmmm, I completely ignored the purple hair business. Sorry!

Quick sketch in ballpoint. It started realistic and then turned into a poor man's caricature. I started sketching the lady and I should have stopped there since it went downhill after that. Sorry about that.
Reference photo: Can one of you please draw my girlfriend and me? It is a picture from the first day we met a while back.

Quick sketch in ballpoint. Respect of proportions is clearly optional. One of those cases when an eraser could have been useful.
Reference photo: If anyone is able to find their inspiration in me, I'd really appreciate seeing this picture of me in your style

Quick sketch in gel pen.
Reference photo: My favorite picture of my grandfather. 24 years or military service... would love to see all the talented artist on the sub give it a try.
This is what I would refer to as a super scribble. It's done in ballpoint pen. It's weird but when you draw, you don't realize something is amiss (the left eye is wandering on its merry way) until it's finished, and then it's too late. Since it's ballpoint, there's really not much that can be done.
Reference photo: My talented friend snapped this pic of me- can you draw me?
Loose sketch in ballpoint. I am not sure why I bothered with the mad hat.
Reference photo: I like this recent pic. I would love it if you could draw me :)

Quick sketch with the gel pen.
Reference photo: A 16 year old picture of my wife from when we first met in high school, can anyone draw her?
Quickie (maybe too quick) in gel pen. I was gonna do the butterfly on the nose but then I realized somebody had done it already and much better that what I could ever do. So, that was the end of that.
Reference photo: So my daughter, the budding artist, was curious what the artists here might do with this selfie she took. Draw my curly-haired teen?
