The Portrait Challenge (Human or Animal)

This challenge closed about 6 years ago.

The Challenge

As winner of a previous challenge, JohnDSmith has proposed a portrait challenge.

One of my favourite painters Lucian Freud had the following to say about portraiture:

“I paint people, not because of what they are like, not exactly in spite of what they are like, but how they happen to be.”

Both human and animal portraits are eligible for entry in this challenge.
