Man portrait in pencil

Malay Man  portrait in pencil A4
This portrait was done in Kuantan, on 20th March 2009, but the client only collected it today.
It was a portrait of her late grandfather, for rememblance.
The original photo was a passport photo, but lower part of the photo was torn and lost.
Thus, I can't see any of his jawline and chin.
That was the only photo they have.
The client provided me a photo of his uncle, which she claimed that both of them looked alike.
My job here was to 'fuse' them into one portrait.
I used to get many similar requests in the past. Definitely not a good and easy task.
What I can promise them was - I try my best! As it is up to my imagination + my experience on portrait drawing.

The client wanted to give a copy of this drawing each to her family members.
Instead of drawing so many copies, I proposed to have it scanned into digital copy, amd send to photo shop to make the copies.
Seems that this idea didn't occur to her. She was overjoyed when I proposed it to her.
But the most difficult part of this job is to get the resemblance of this subject.

Upon her collection, she was delighted:-
"Oh, goodness!"
"I will come back for more!"
