what qualifies as a portrait?

Look at some of the examples I’ve put on this page. What could I draw for you, that will end up as a finished drawing that will bring out the essence of a person, place or thing? What can I draw for you, that will depict someone or something that has meaning for you personally –  be it your pet, your house,  your vehicle, landscape or geographical area? It could be your best friend, your Mom, a flower – or even a rock!
