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 is the FINAL. I've had a lot of people ask me to do some step scans for Blonde hair, and thought this would be a good one.

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?

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

(The drawing is smaller than the ENLARGED view but larger than the small view)

I think this is from the movie "THE ALAMO"? That's supposed to be dirt on his face, not shadows :D:D

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.

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
