Kinda of a quick one for me. I had trouble with the eyes. They seemed too small and the quality of the photo was not good, so I had to make up details. I made his beard a little thicker than it was.

I know...there are too many drawings of this guy, but I hadn't drawn him since January 2009, when I first started drawing, and I wanted to do a larger piece. This old one below only as a 3 inch face.

The reference photo was actually lacking in some details, so I added some of my own. There was SO much BLACK in this, I basically just blacked out everything that WASN'T Jack :D:D

I was first attracted to drawing this because of it's intense light sources, as well as being an exercise in patience for drawing all the highlighted hair :D

Mel Gibson and Danny Glover made a great pair, and were of course was very popular in their Lethal Weapon movie and it's sequels.

I used Bristol VELLUM this time, because I find that Vellum responds very well to scratching. I took a nail and a needle, and FIRST scratched out the highlights in the hair area, then drew around them. It was a lot of "negative space" drawing, which I never seem to have the patience for doing?

Paper: Bristol Vellum
Pencils: Staedtler B, 2B, 3B
Size: 6-1/2 inches tall (16cm) x 8-3/4 inches (22cm) wide
Time: Approximately 7 hours

It did not require much blending at all. The zoom view is actually larger than the drawing, but 600 pixels is too small. I wonder why they don't give us an option at 700 pixels wide???

Hope you like it?
:D:D:D

* Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper
* Approx 8 hours
* Approx 5x6 inches (13x15cm)
* Staedtler Mars Lumograph Pencils (both Wood & Clutch)
H, F, HB, B, 2B, 3B
* Loew Cornell Blending Stumps
* Kneaded Rubber Eraser
* Magnifying Glass

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?!? :D:D
