I drew this for a friend I've never met on Twitter, for his daughter's birthday, in exchange for a pumpkin carve. I know what you are thinking, but this guy is crazy talented. He does what we do on styrofoam pumpkins!

Definitely check out his site www.ThePumpkinGeek.com

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.

UN-enlarged view is about the size of the actual drawing :D:D

I've had the reference photo of this saved for over a year. I loved the highlights and the challenge with his hair and the "negative space" work required. I'm still too impatient to do it correctly, but this is the best I can do for now.

The ENLARGED VIEW is the EXACT SIZE of the ORIGINAL Drawing

I recently got into the HBO series "Entourage". My fav is Jeremy Piven as "Ari Gold". I loved the shadows and values in the photo!

I met Jeremy Piven's make-up artist on Twitter and she is getting him the image, and maybe the original. How cool is that?!? Imagine if he re-tweets my drawing to his 1.6+MILLION followers lol

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.
