This below is a pic of my Grandpa Eric. He passed when I was 6 or 7, a long time ago...
I remember him but only a few moments.
He owned a bar in North Dakota, Bondy's Bar, I'm not sure what to do with the background. I love the way the color pops from the background of the pure white when I use my Prisma Colors. Yet, it needs a background (and some other work on the eyes and hair...). I'm not fond of doing the exact background that is in the photo.
The color varies online from the actual on the paper. Oh well, one of these days I'll figure out which is better to use on which one of my programs with the pixels, resolutions, DPI's, JPEG's, etc.

Anyway, this one is done in watercolor
And this second I went for Illustration/Cartoon with Colored Pencil
And now I'm off to start something new...... Following the Masters, or Bill Guffey's Virtual Paintout-Google Challenge, or maybe Different Strokes from Different folks' challenge...... yipee! I gotta go!
