-I like this frame look like an album. And I think the texture of the pencil drawing  illustrate his hard life and sorrow. Also i can feel his eyes are saying something. The organisation of this portrait is quite simple but I can feel many things from that.

-I think this portrait look like old animation. Even I feel it’s cute. His face looks nasty person. And the texture of the paper looks warm. I like this visual texture.

-These two portraits have some in common that they have been drew by pencil. And they illustrate not only artist’s face but also their feeling and life. I can see their life even I don’t know nothing about them.
