His hoodie took me longer to draw than his face! I'm happy with the texture, which I did by first laying a base with B & 2B.
Then some light "spot blending", followed by using a SOFT 5B (I roughened the surface with sandpaper) & used an Overhand Grip.
I then "point shaped" a kneaded eraser and "Blue Tac" to highlight :D

This is RJ Mitte who play Walter White's son, Walt Jr on my FAV show Breaking Bad!

He was willing to follow me on Twitter in exchange for me drawing him, and of course he's gonna send me a photo of him with it :D He makes the 8th Breaking Bad Actor to follow me on Twitter :D

He's really a great guy! I loved doing something a little different with this one, rather than my traditional straight-on head shots. The challenges here was drawing so small, due to the photo quality, along with drawing a PROFILE and trying to capture his "eyes" in such a little space. His whole is only approx 4 x 6 inches.

ACTUAL DRAWING SIZE IS IN BETWEEN NORMAL AND ZOOM VIEW

(UN-enlarged view is about actual size of drawing)

This is Bryan Cranston, as "Walter White" from the hit AMC original series "Breaking Bad". It is being called "the best show on TV" and IS in my opinion! In fact, it's delayed airing of Season 4 is in July, and starting TONIGHT, they are airing ALL 3 seasons, between now and when S4 starts in July.

My fav parts to draw on this one? Trying to figure out how to draw his broken glasses of course, the band-aid in the middle of his glasses and the shadow against the wall on his right I felt gave it some depth? :D:D

My Dislikes: The cut on his lip, and forehead could be better :(

SIZE: 7.5 wide x 7 inches tall
TIME: about 12 hours
PAPER: Bristol Smooth 300 series

We got to meet his partner in the show "Jessie Pinkman" played by Aaron Paul, at Hard Rock Cafe in Chicago in 2010, when our son Andrew Belle played there.


My Step work here:


As of 9-7-2012 I got this from Vince Gilligan himself, after sending this original to his office headquarters, where it hangs proudly in the entry hall for cast, crew, etc to view :D:D

Breaking Bad fans know this is Aaron Paul, who recently won an Emmy Award for "Best Supporting Actor in a Drama Series" for his role as “Jesse Pinkman” in AMC's hit show "Breaking Bad". I don't allow myself to obsess over any TV shows or celebrities, but Breaking Bad is my SOLE exception, ha! :D:D So you can imagine that we were thrilled to meet Aaron at Hard Rock Café in Chicago in 2010, while watching our son Andrew Belle perform. He is a super nice guy, and when you spend literally dozens of hours with a TV character, you feel as if you know them?

A few days ago, I @ mentioned Aaron (@aaronpaul_8) on twitter and said that if he followed me on twitter, I would draw him a large double portrait of him and Bryan Cranston" and he agreed! (twitter.com/rickfortson) However, he would rather I create a different drawing that he would hang in his personal home :D:D

Last week, I finally mailed my original “Walter White” drawing to Vince Gilligan (show creator) who is having it framed and hung in the official Breaking Bad office! :D:D

Last December, Vince Gilligan had somehow seen my drawings and had his assistant email me to get my home address, and then sent me some fan SWAG from the show, along with a hand written thank you note. Of course, I remain blown away that he did that!

PS - his right pupil (our left) was not exactly rounded on both sides in the reference photo, and I drew it that way. Wishing I had corrected it now. Like someone once told me, if it looks strange in a photo, it will look even stranger in your drawing. Sometimes we need to take a little artistic license and change it to look more natural?

CHECK out what Vince Gilligan (creator of the show) sent me when he saw my BB drawings :D:D

It Currently hangs at the Breaking Bad offices :D

Breaking Bad. One of my favorite series of all time. I've been thinking about doing this portrait for a while. And I finally did it. I'm about to do the same kind of tribute for Gus Fring and Jesse Pinkman.
It was a lot of fun drawing the 100bucks and Walter's wrinkles.

Hope you guys like it.

Done with pencils, and Fabber Castell black pens.
