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

This is a commission for a website branding. Once the site goes live, I'll pop the details into my notes :) This is the reason I have scanned with an empty ribbon also, the website details are in there.

This is Come With Me II, for some reason it feels the same as my other drawing of the same name, IDK why :shrug:

Materials this time:
Hot Pressed Watercolour Paper (8"x11")
Graphite (2H, 2B, 4B, 6B)
Erasers
Time - Approx 12-14 Hours

Refs - Were unspecific, but I used some as references for ideas and angles.

Thank you very much for having a look :heart:

There is just one WIP this time, it's here

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

NOTE ABOUT THE DRAWING: As much as I enjoyed drawing all the details in his glasses, I hated drawing his hand. I HATE drawing hands! Also the ref photo was not high resolution (see link) and while I know teeth are NOT suppose to be pure white, the photo made them appear that way. Anyway, I have an 8 out of 10 on the satisfaction scale with this one. CLICK DOWNLOAD for a SUPER CLOSE UP VIEW? :D:D

*** UN-enlarged view is Exact Size as actual drawing ***

Well...it's about time I did a self portrait huh? The photo was taken by my daughter Maggie, when she was shooting me for business cards. Between shots I just made a goofy face :D
It is the same kinda face I made when I was 2 years old, my parents entered me into the "Little Mr. Dallas" Baby contest. I took 2nd place lol. I should post that baby pic of me for grins? On a side note, the lighting in the reference photo makes my right (your left) eye look very dark, and slightly larger?
