Heya Tipptoppster ;)

Thank you very much for your kind words and those shiny stars.

Now, to your question: There is no photobashing in this picture and the portrait isn't based on one particular image of the subject. I do make a point of mentioning all tools, resources and references I've used in a piece in the description because I consider this to be the polite thing to do.
I've had several reference photos of my family member around most of them fairly low res due to them being taken with an old phone. To get the sketch just right in terms of construction and likeness was, as usual, the most difficult part and it took me embarrassingly long to get it done.
If the result however is more a testament to my patience when it comes to rendering than to my skills ;)

Best wishes and have an awesomefuckingtastic day
