I was inspired to draw Denzel Washington by his recent movie "FLIGHT" but he's been one of my ALL TIME favorite actors for many years! I've wanted to draw him for a long time, but I could not find the "right photo".

I found a photo of Ryan Gosling and George Clooney combined. Ryan is holding a folded TIME magazine over 1/2 of his face with Clooney on the other side. I have not seen the movie yet, but want to.
I hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Year! I've been SO busy with moving, work etc that this is the first drawing I've down in almost 2 months. Now that we are settled, and winter is setting in, I hope to be drawing a lot more!

This is my 3rd Bruce Willis drawing in 2 years. The weird thing was, while I've been drawing it over the last 2 days, on the TV next to my drawing table were the movies Die Hard, The Whole Ten Yards, an ad for Live Free Die Hard and tonight I saw Cop Out
As usual, the UN-enlarged view is about the size of the actual drawing, which is 5-1/2 x 7 inches
I tried NOT to focus too much on the badge. I've done that with other portraits before when they have objects in the drawing. I tried to draw his thumb print too, if you can see that?
