Graduation season is upon us and I decided to draw this portrait of an elated young man standing with his mother at his college graduation.
He is much taller than his mother so for the sake of the portrait, I placed their faces closer together in the final drawing. I decided to use my charcoal mediums in black and white to accent shadows and the lighting that was present throughout the original photo.
