He had all the fat removed from his face to make himself more attractive.
This is another drawing done with black and white pencils on brown paper.
Unlike painting, pencil drawing is very relaxing. With paint you have to work quickly before your mix starts to dry, and if you mess up you've gotta wait for it to dry so you can paint over it. Something about knowing there's wet paint on the tip of your brush puts you into a more frenzied mood. Painting is fun and I guess it can be relaxing, but there's a lot of setup time and it's messy, and once you start you're in it for the long haul. You have to go until you're done. With pencils you can stop and start and come and go as you please.
