Custom Anniversary Portrait

Here's a recent pencil portrait I drew for this couple's anniversary. Last year they ordered some portraits of their children, so it was a pleasure to draw for them again! "There is no rush on this, so you can spend extra time making us look younger (than the photo)" the husband said, which I thought was funny because they're such a good-looking couple anyway. I simplified and lightened the wrinkles a little bit, but not that much. Everyone has wrinkles around their eyes when they smile, so if you leave those out entirely, it diminishes the expression in the face.

I love the bride's beautiful eyes. Here's some pictures of the portrait in progress.

They were very happy with their portrait!
