He didn't want an ordinary soft lines portrait.
- a chunky and kind-of-fractured style
- his stoner eyes and his laugh lines to show,
- his sunglasses on (how are you supposed to see his laugh lines?)
- a smirk-y smile, even though I told him teeth in a portrait can look cheesy
- his hair to look unkempt
We spent a lot of time together to make sure we got it right. He loved it and best of all his wife had tears of joy, which is good, cause it was a surprise gift to her from him.
