Portrait Gift

For their 28th anniversary I drew a portrait of my parents and gave it to them. It was 18"x 24" in colored pencil and resulted in 4 different packs of pencils, three blisters, and 6 different reference photos (my dad has this thing about a) smiling and b) keeping his eyes open for the camera). Oh, and all the photos were closely scrutinized under a magnifying glass. My brain hurts. But they liked it a lot, so it's all worth it.

As always, I'm not completely satisfied with it, but then again, left to my own devices I'd work on it forever. But hey, at least now I'm free to work on some fanart for Robert Jordan's calendar contest.
