HERE, I first use my needle tool, and scratch the hairs, just as if I had a pencil. Then I used a 2B with an "over-hand" grip and laid down some graphite, after first darkening some of the shadows and low-lights. Next come the highlights...

As usual, I start with the EYES. If you don't those right, you won't like your work.

***BOTH views are LARGER than the original drawing***

Any "Entourage" fans here? I recently got into the show, and have watched almost all 7 seasons in the last few weeks.

Previously was Jeremy Piven (Ari Gold)

I plan to draw all of the main characters soon. However, I start teaching a portrait drawing class at a local college tomorrow, so I will be drawing someone different next

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

This 600 pixel wide view is about 1 inch taller and 1 inch wide than the drawing.

This is Tyrone Wells, singer-songwriter. My son Andrew Belle is on a 35 city tour with him now. We got to see 2 shows this weekend while they are coming through Chicago! He's an awesome artist!

Check him out at www.TyroneWells.com

The reference photo is from his most recent cd, and is blurred around the edges of his head, ears, etc. This is a technique I'm still teaching myself, so hopefully I pulled it off somewhat?

We got to meet him in Chicago at one of our son's shows at HardRock Cafe in 2010

I gifted the drawing to Aaron. Here he is with my drawing :D:D

One thing you will notice is that there are no "highlight reflections" in his eyes. I noticed that too in the photo. Makes it look different.
