I drew this in my notebook while waiting on some coffee to brew at work. Can you tell who it is? It's supposed to be Shakespeare, based off the cover painting on the Barnes and Noble edition of The Sonnets I'm reading at the moment. (Free advice: Don't read sonnets while depressed. It doesn't help.) Some of the shading on the neck came off as too beard like and not shade enough like, but that's what you get when scratching away in Subway. I wasn't sure at first whether I would go all the way with crosshatching, rendering shadows, etc., so I was pretty lax on where lines went. Still, I think it turned out alright.
These I drew last night. I was feeling shitty and almost posted some scathing sarcastic remarks on some facebook photos, but opted instead to satirize them in cartoon form.
Obviously not much effort went into them. Not only did I do those I hated, however. I also did myself. Kind of. Not exactly the same thing.
