Okay! Where to start! Well, I've been meaning to draw Michael Emerson for a few years now as I'm a big fan of his work, and that's what initially drew me to Person of Interest. Suffice to say I got hooked on the show right from the pilot episode and my admiration of the duo's relationship developed quite rapidly into a compulsive need to draw them both.
I seldom draw people unless I have some sort of personal respect for them; so I read up on Jim Caviezel and only then did I realise he'd played Jesus in Passion of the Christ, and, funnily enough, after I'd watched that film I'd wondered for years who that actor was as he just completely reduced me to tears at the time. Equally in real life Jim seems like an incredibly nice guy [as is Mr Emerson] he's been married for many years and they've adopted two poorly children. If that doesn't inspire you to draw someone, I don't know what does.
It took me a long time to complete the drawing using my usual kit; graphite pencils, kneaded eraser, charcoal and using a make-up applicator for blending. Frustratingly I had to do little bits here and there when I could find the time. The skyline was the definitely the worst part for me. I'm not used to drawing scenery of any description so I humbly ask you forgive the quality of that! Again, for some reason I never manage particularly well with clothing either. Still, I think their likenesses came out alright so that I am pleased with.
Ze WIP is now in my scraps. Also guys, I've decided to draw the whole cast in pairs in the same, one profile, one facing style with a scenic background. I'm working on Elias and Scarface at the minute. If you're interested, the WIPs will be uploaded in my scraps as I go on.
