This is a picture of a Locksmith who lived in the mid 1800's.

I was attracted to his funny button-up apron and hat. He looked like he had consumption, poor guy.

I did the drawing in pencil then scanned it in Photoshop. I like to do portraits in Photoshop because it's so forgiving. you can layer the skin tones until you get the right color and the things that you can do with filters for interesting backgrounds are endless.
