Rick N is a bearded fellow and is the perfect model for today’s prompt, “beard.” Rick has been on Sktchy for many years and has been an amazing resource for when I need to see how to draw an emotion or a pose. His comments are always positive and upbeat and he is a valuable part of the Sktchy community. Rick has posted almost 3000 reference photos for artists to use for inspiration. Amazingly, he is extremely versatile, with a whole treasure trove of poses, costumes and expressions.
This is a classic Rick face, sketched with gouache.
