Laughter or Anquish?

It’s supposed to be laughter…

I feel that I missed fully coveying this gentleman’s laughter.  Somehow I have rendered him somewhere between laughter and anguish.  The reference photo clearly conveys laughter, so, I do apologize for failing to convey this gentleman’s full emotion.

None the less, this was a fun sketch.  The photo reference I used is by photographer Mary Isabelle.  More of her fantastic work can be found on her 500px profile page.

  1. Wow again, Michael. Your portraits are amazingly detailed and full of life. In this image, I too see the laughter in his expression because there is something relaxed in the lower portion of his face and that conveys joy. IMO.
