One more

One more portrait quickie before sleep

If you've spent a good part of last 3 decades as an Asian, you'll get a sudden hunch as to who this guy might be. Chances are, you've read plenty about this guy.

Having read Romance of Three Kingdoms on multiple occasion, it is inevitable you grow attached to one particular character over time. For me, it was Cao Cao, who was portrayed as the main villain. Despite the way novelized version of Record of Three Kingdoms portrays him, you can't help but admire the sheer intelligence and the wit of this guy. Also the intense jealousy and anger he shows makes him as human as rest of us.

Anyways, so I did my version of him, although I'm pretty sure he'd look a lot more Chinese in real life.
