Memorial portrait

Recently I was honored to receive a commission for a memorial pencil portrait. The customer's grandmother, above, passed away at the age of 99 - wow!

"Here is the photo we all love of her," the customer said. Usually I do not recommend using faded vintage photos like this one, so the customer and I went through many other photos of her grandmother. However, in the end it was clear that this picture best captures her warm personality, so I did the best I could to reflect that in my drawing.
