Well, I FINALLY finished this! It wasn't because it was too difficult, but because I've had so much business in the past 6 weeks, and I've either been too busy, or too tired :D:D
Also, I recently got a new computer and decided to get Modern Warfare games, which I love. Another reason, is that I had finished this all the way to the hair and hand, the 2 things I enjoy drawing least. Anyway, it's TOO large for my scanner, so I had to use a digital camera. I will get a better show one day, and replace this, because it is not 100% in focus to see the details. This was the best shot out of about 50 so good enough :)

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.

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

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

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.
