NOTE: the UN-enlarged view is the ACTUAL SIZE of the original drawing
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.
Katie Herzig is a Singer-Songwriter from Nashville, and is amazingly talented! She is also part of the highly acclaimed group of Singer-Songwriters known as the "Ten out of Tenn" (Tennessee), along with my son, Andrew Belle. Katie is the one who sang on his song "Static Waves"
(Crappy photo with cell phone. Not sealed or best pic...yet. Too large for scanner) FIRST, let me say I'm sorry for not replying on time or commenting on your works lately. I've had a LOT of business lately and have not been able to draw much. Also, my wife's sister and one of our dogs died last week, one of our daughter's went off to college and we've never been SO BUSY. I hope to get back on here soon.
In the mean time, I've been working on this here and there over the past 2-3 weeks. It's Marlon Brando in a famous scene from The Godfather. Doing it for my parents 50th wedding anniversay on August 28th.
***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

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.
