Jake in Ripples

So this was my final project for my drawing class this past semester. We had to draw a name of one of our classmates out of a hat and do a "portrait" of that person in our style, which didn't have to have their likeness in it at all if we didn't want to put it in there. My subject was Jake. Seeing as I love doing portraits, I stuck with the more traditional route, with a little extra added in, which needs explanation.
We talked a lot about ripples, and how ripples act the the same way that people interact, where one ripple takes equally from another when they collide, much like people when they talk to others and influence their lives. I video taped my conversation with him, and picked three expressions from the video to draw, making the largest and more expressive face the largest portrait and coincidentally the largest ripple.
I was really happy with how it came out, and Jake was thrilled with it. I gave it to him after class, and was honored to know he had wanted it and was planning on framing it.
Rather large, 18 x 24, grey paper with white charcoal and graphite.
