I have it displayed in 700 pixels wide, which is about 1 inch WIDER than the actual drawing :D:D 2 years later (7/1/12) I see many areas I could improve on today ;)

I've seen others draw this in the past, and I always knew I would one day. Well, I finally did it? I was most challenged by all the tiny buildings in the reflection of his glasses.

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.
:D:D

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.

OLD DRAWING


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

SIZE: 8.5 x 10.5 inches
TIME: about 12 hours?
PAPER: Bristol Smooth 300 series
PENCILS: Staedtler Mars Lumograph F, HB, B, 2B

I liked the contrast in this photo :D In the photo, his ear was out of focus. I tried to duplicate that effect, but I need more practice at that technique.

"WHY SO SERIOUS??? LET'S PUT A SMILE ON THAT FACE!!"
:D:D

I loved the expression in this photo, and have not seen anyone draw this one before, but it was not high res, and I have to imagine some of the details. Most photos of him are slightly out of focus screen shots from the movie vs him posing for his photo in make-up? I also didnít waste my time trying to reproduce the dots on his shirt collar either. The reference photo looks clear enough, but the larger you make it, the more pixelated it gets. I couldn't really go wrong though with the makeup. Unlike the details of a normal person, messy make-up is messy make-up, so it didnít really matter that I didnít try to copy this 100%?

This is my 3rd Bruce Willis drawing in 2 years. The weird thing was, while I've been drawing it over the last 2 days, on the TV next to my drawing table were the movies Die Hard, The Whole Ten Yards, an ad for Live Free Die Hard and tonight I saw Cop Out :D:D

As usual, the UN-enlarged view is about the size of the actual drawing, which is 5-1/2 x 7 inches

I tried NOT to focus too much on the badge. I've done that with other portraits before when they have objects in the drawing. I tried to draw his thumb print too, if you can see that? ;)

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

It's about time I did one of Bono? I was challenged by trying to get the glasses dark, yet still barely able to see his eyes. I know his nose looks disproportionate, but the photo looks off too? One of those cases where I should have drawn him a perfect nose? :D
