FIRST...Luis just joined DA so he could comment below (lmoncada77), so everyone go "watch" him [link]
SECOND...BOTH views are LARGER than actual drawing (had to draw small, see below)
This is Luis Moncada. He and his brother Daniel played The Salamanca brothers, the Cartel Killer Hit men on Breaking Bad, Season 3 - episodes 1 through 6. I will be sending the original to Luis, and plan to draw several other characters from the show.
Season 5 will start July 15th and is said to have 8 episodes this summer, with 8 more episodes in the summer of 2013, which will either be considered Season 6 or the 2nd 1/2 of season 5. Either way, it will be the final season
This may have been my most challenging drawing, BECAUSE the largest reference photo I could find was not large enough to view fine details. Neither Luis himself or the Art Dept at Breaking Bad could find a larger file! If not for Luis working with me on this, letting me know the details were correct as I went along, I could not, and would not have attempted this, no matter how much I wanted to draw the photo. You guys know EXACTLY what I mean!?! I was basically imagining the details. One of the things I had to do, was draw this as SMALL as possible, so I could draw from a smaller than typical reference photo, because I could see more details when I printed the ref pic smaller

Jonathan Banks as Mike Ehrmantraut on AMC's Original TV series "Breaking Bad"
My contact at the AMC Breaking Bad office, who is a PA Script coordinator & writer, tells me that Jonathan both saw and wants the drawing. I sent it to them 8/1/12 and they will have it framed and give it to him. Jonathan Banks points to my drawing on his wall

Hey everyone...I decided to create a blog on wordpress just for drawing tips, since Google docs keeps upgrading, which changes the whole appearance. You can find me at DrPencil.wordpress.com or click here [link]
This is a TIP GUIDE that I have been adding to since 2010 and is basically everything I think I have learned about drawing. It includes materials and tools I use, with illustrations. It is a Google Doc so it will change and grow over time, so be sure to bookmark the link [link]
The UN-enlarged view is a little bigger than the drawing.
I love the Breaking Bad character Gustavo "Gus" Fring, played by Giancarlo Esposito. He replied to my twitter post, and I was able to send him the original drawing via his manger. He gave me a random Twitter mention yesterday, SO cool! (2/17/13)
