NOTE: I also used a large sewing needle mounted in a Clutch lead holder to scratch out the lines in his hair and small whiskers. Then when you go over it with a pencil, the lines magically appears (warning: practice first before you ruin your drawing)
I watched the first half of Season 1 of Dexter about 3 years ago. I recently joined Netflix.com and started watching Season 2. In the past 10 days, I watched Seasons 2, 3 & 4!!! When I get into a show, I really get into it! This is the reason it's been 2 weeks since my last drawing, ha! I'm the same way with LOST, 24 and most recently Breaking Bad. (Yes, Bryan Cranson is probably my next drawing). Season 5 of Dexter starts this fall, so I will probably have to order the Showtime channel so I can watch it?
For those who don't know the show, he is a Forensics Detective for the Miami Metro Police by day, and a vigilante serial killer by night. However, he only kills murderers.
This photo is from the Season 4 DVD cover. He has his new son Harrison on his shoulders, who dripped what appears to be blood on his face, but it's really juice. I had a little trouble with his mouth, because it's unusual? The photo also has a LOT of different light effects which made for more trouble. I also kinda rushed his shirt at the end, which I normally do. I don't like drawing clothes, as I'm sure you noticed?
I hope you Dexter fans like it?!?
