Ruddy Faced Boy

I was heading uptown on the train to water my friends' plants when I noticed the profile of the young man sitting next to me. He must've been no more than 19, maybe 20. He was carrying a lot of gear —sports, perhaps?—in his bag, and I had to keep myself from staring because I liked how his cheekbone line went straight to his lip line from the angle of his profile. I said, I wish I could draw this right now, then I remembered I have the Procreate app in my iPhone. I seldom use i, and it was because the finger control makes it hard for fine details. But I had time to kill and while it's not perfect, it has a nice, naive quality to it. Plus I DID get that cheekbone line down!
