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".

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

Well, this took me a while! It's only 5 inches tall by 15 inches wide (about 1/2 my normal portrait size) which I reduced to save time, but still took me about 30 hours?
I had to JOIN 2 scans cuz it was too big for my scanner. You can see the line between George and Elaine. I also uploaded each side separately, along with a side-by-side comparison of what I drew 4 years ago
