Making gray

Here’s a caricature I did of Paul Erdős for his 101st birthday today:
Happy birthday, Paul Erdős (1)Happy birthday, Paul Erdős (3)
I spent a couple of weeks working on it off and on, though progress was slowed down when I cut my hand working on the tree house…

I started out wanting to use only grays, but found my marker supply was missing most values – so I went with a couple of additional colors and desaturated the image digitally.
