13-15 year olds

I have decided to draw a portrait of my pop. Others think he has a strong personality but I decided to capture his softer side, so I created a realistic graphite drawing of him where he seems content. I haven’t drawn any background or other objects as I wanted to show only him, because that is the only thing that matters. He doesn’t care what others think about him and may even be more stubborn than me. He has taught me so much and for that I am eternally grateful.
