I think having a drawing is a great idea. I definitely prefer to see other folks’ photos. Employers might wonder about the confidence of the people who don’t post them, and the last thing you want people to do on a networking site is doubt your confidence. I’m sure lots of people have good reasons not to post them, but there’s certainly ways around some of them–post a picture of you from a distance, in flattering light (or lack thereof) or post a touched-up Glamor Shot-style photo. Or post a picture of your cat or dog! That at least gives us a clue about your personality. Right now I hope mine shows how much I love my son!
