Sktchy, if you haven't heard of it, is an online gallery of reference photos for artists to draw from and then share the drawings. I'm fairly new to it and wasn't sure if drawing a stranger from a photo would be fun or weird, but I'm happy to report it was fun. And no worries about having the family/friends chime in on whether the nose is too big or the eyes the wrong color. In fact, I didn't try too hard for an exact likeness, although I think it is pretty close. I stopped at an early stage in the painting because I felt I captured the essence of the expression and didn't need to go beyond it.
