Memorial Portrait of a Man
This portrait looks light here, because I had too much light when I took the photo. This portrait was drawn from a very old photo with high contrast. I used a computer graphics program to zoom in and lighten the right side of his head and ear (to your left looking at the artwork) because I couldn't see any details at all in the ear - due to the high contrast, it was completely black. From lightening the photo on the computer and zooming in, I was able to make out a few darker areas and was able to make a strong guess.
