The Bourne Ultimatum and Ocean's 13 was just on...soooo I guess it inspired me to draw Matt? :D

This is about 5x5 inches (13x13cm) and took me about 3 hours tonight. I used B for the dark foundation, then built 2B 4B on top of that, then back to 2B and H to blend it as dark as I could get it.

PS - I have had a couple comments about me not getting the black areas as dark as I used to. Let me say, I never got any perfectly black, and a camera photo hides the micro holes that you can see. Now that I'm using a scanner, it shows everything so much clearer. It shows details, but imperfections too :D

This was more of a sketch for me, because I didn't feel like doing his hair "right" which would involve a lot of negative space drawing. :D

Loved this serious look from a normally goofy guy!! It offered lots of contrast and a different look for him!! Oh and yes, I realize his right eye is lighter that his left. I didn't notice it until after I spray sealed it ha!

My fav Kevin Spacey movie is probably "Pay it Forward".

Yeah I know, the shirt sucks. It was out of focus in the photo and I did not feel like spending any more time on this one. The day I can give 100% all the way through a drawing is the day I will produce my best work :D:D

This 400 pixel wide view (enlarged) is the EXACT size of the original drawing.

I hesitated on even submitting this! It's more of a sketch for me really, since I did not BLEND the way I normally do, and left out lots of details. I could not find a good pic of him that was also high quality, and this is only 4x5 inches (10 x 14 CM) small....SO, contrary to what some of my friends here think, every drawing can NOT be a masterpiece LOL

Not a Rambo freak or anything like that, ha! I just ran across this a while back, and saved it b/c I liked the range of contrast. It's pretty small, about 4.5x5 inches (11x13cm)

I couldn't really tell what was going on in the photo in his hand area? So I did the best I could.

I've been drawing on Strathmore Bristol Smooth, but their 400 series vs the 300 series, which is thicker. I think the 400 thinner paper is a little harder to get perfectly black areas? Maybe b/c it's thinner and the tooth is harder to crush? Or maybe it crushes too much? Who knows, just a thought...:D
