Right amount of beard sparkle

Portrait of Rakso S. inspired by a photograph on Sktchy. Digitally painted with Procreate on an iPad Air 2.

If you squint your eyes just right it almost looks like a photograph. Don’t zoom in on the forehead or else you’ll notice how unpolished the painting is. But I’m not complaining, 3 hours of work with results like this — I’ll take it!
