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.

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

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.

This is Aaron Paul who play Jessie Pinkman on AMC's "Breaking Bad" named the BEST show on TV (agreed!!)

Season 4 premiered last night (7.17.11) and it was CRAZY GOOD!!

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

(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.

SIZE: 11 x 14 on Bristol Smooth

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

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.
