H. P. Lovecraft wrote supernatural horror fiction that expressed his view (and 2020’s) that humanity was an unimportant part of an uncaring cosmos that could be swept away at any moment. When I came across his photo, I thought sketching him would be a good way to close out the horror show that has been 2020. After my 5th and final attempt I’m ready to leave him–and 2020–behind!
Above is my final attempt, with corrections added to sketch #4. Below are the first four sketches and the original photo. Which one do you think came closest? I think #3 turned out to look like Mark Zuckerberg, LOL!

I love the progression! You get better with every drawing!
I vote for #4. He certainly has an interesting mouth that must have been a challenge to capture. Well done.
