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

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
Great Highlight clip of the Moncada brothers Breaking Bad [link]

He is Walter White jr, played by RJ Mitte in a tv series called Breaking Bad
I really liked the reference photo, I also really enjoyed the challenge of drawing the hair, as I usually tend to avoid drawing photos with lots of hair. I had kept this drawing very nearly finished, but still incomplete for about half a year, I decided to finish it yesterday, so dated it 2013 instead of 2012.

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

He is Gustavo Fring played by Giancarlo Esposito from a tv series called Breaking Bad
The reference photo really captured his personality, so I tried to achieve the same effect in my drawing. I made this drawing nearly half a year ago, I am still quite happy with it, especially the eyes.
This drawing took about a week to complete I used 4B and B pencils and an eraser I hope you like it!
