'Contemplative'- pencil portrait


I have been working on pencil more and more lately, preparing for coming new years' calendar, for my sister and her husband's firm.This portrait was initially planned for the calendar, but later they changed their minds about the theme...now it has no takers- still it feels good to share it with you all.
This sketch was based on my friend Vikram's photo.Thanks, Vikram.

Vivacious

A pencil portrait of my friend Harmeet, who has wanted one for a long time! She is a beautiful and self confident woman with a vivacious personality; a teacher by profession.I hope these traits reflect in this portrait.
The photo was provided by Vikram who happens to be my friend, and her husband :)
