One of my favorites is Pencil Portraits thanks to its small member base (only around 400 as opposed to the Your Art’s nearly 10k), which keeps the signal to noise ratio down and because of its subject matter, naturally.
So, imagine my suprise when, a week or so ago, this drawing appeared in my feed reader:
S.G. Chipman by Ener Popener
I paused, cocked my head to the side, stared at it a moment and said “huh…that handsome devil certainly looks familiar.”
Ener Popener, the artist, wasn’t pleased with the likeness when he first posted it, so I left a comment letting him know that Clara thought it was just fine. If a toddler can spot the likeness, you’re at the very least pretty close.
My thanks to Ener for taking the time to draw me – I was quite a suprise, not to mention flattering, that he thought enough of my work to do the portrait in the first place as a means of inviting me into his artist portrait group.
Now to find a good picture of Mr. Popener so I can return the favor.
