the old grumpy man made me 100$

portrait grumpy old man Marie-Judith
Here's another drawing I made 16 years ago. It's funny how a passion never really leaves you. Even though I was studying Pure and Applied Sciences in school, I would find time to draw portraits like these. This portrait was submitted to a contest at school and I was actually one of the winners. I think the prize was $100. I wasn't aware at the time of the various types of pencils available (the Bs, HB, F and Hs). I believe this was made only with an HB pencil. I think with a couple darker pencils like a B or 2B it would have been even better. Still I was pretty happy with this one.
