Bruce Willis by earlierbirdscenic Bruce Willis by earlierbirdscenic
Bruce Willis, umm, it took me about 8 hours cumulative across a span of 3 days. I did the drawing with mechanical pencil first then went over with a 6B to get some of the darker shades in.
I don't have an A3 scanner so I had to take a photo of it. The photo doesn't really do the drawing justice in my opinion. It doesn't really quite capture the minor details properly. Oh well

Doesn't look like him entirely but I'm quite happy with the effort. For once I didn't really rush it.
I took more time than I ever have. I started with his clothing because I usually finish those bits in a drawing last and ruin it because I try to get the picture over and done with. So this time by doing the clothing first I took time in getting the details right.
Hope you guys like it!
Enjoy :)

I know what you mean by not having a A3 scanner and taking a photo of it. Good job :)

Vey nice :D
Just one question: How did you draw the black areas?
My only problem in my draws is that I can't paint the background with normal pencils because it tends to appear the direction in which I paint and because normally, the black doesn't appear in an homogeneous way (there are always some white spots that don't get painted due to the pores of the paper).

Congratulations...

charcoal is very effective at covering those white areas. It gives you very nice and even black matte.

But i did use pencil in this case, i think a 6B if i recall correctly. There is no shortcut to doing this with a pencil. The trick is too press the pencil really really hard on the paper. It may destroy lower quality papers if you press to hard, so try and get at least a good quality cartridge paper.
