View is LARGER than ACTUAL SIZE of Drawing

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".

MEDIUM: Graphite on Bristol Smooth 300 series stock
TIME: 12+ Hours
PENCILS: Staedtler Lumograph 3B, 2B, B, HB, F, HB, F, H

The wrinkles drove me nuts because it is only 6.5 x 6.5 inches, so this view is about 1/2 inch larger than the actual drawing :D

NOTE: UN-enlarged view is about 1 inch wider and taller than Drawing

This looked a lot easier than it was. I thought all I had to do was make black everything that was NOT Arnold, but there were many challenges to this one!

FAV song by Stevie: "I Just Called To Say I Love You" [link]

NOTE ABOUT THE DRAWING: As much as I enjoyed drawing all the details in his glasses, I hated drawing his hand. I HATE drawing hands! Also the ref photo was not high resolution (see link) and while I know teeth are NOT suppose to be pure white, the photo made them appear that way. Anyway, I have an 8 out of 10 on the satisfaction scale with this one. CLICK DOWNLOAD for a SUPER CLOSE UP VIEW? :D:D

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!
