Steampunk Jeff, pencil portrait by Kirk Witmer

Pencil portrait - 9 x 12"

I did this portrait in response to a challenge for artists on one of the many websites in which I participate. It was an interesting effort for me. Not because of this particular subject, but because of the "challenges" it presented. Most importantly the reflections on all the hardware. I hadn't had a subject that has presented that challenge so far, so I couldn't resist the temptation to jump in on this one.
For the purists who want to see just how close I got the the original, the challenge photo is inset into the upper right corner here.
