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

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 He makes the 8th Breaking Bad Actor to follow me on Twitter
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
Is the first time I try to draw water. I chose this photo because I thought it was a great challenge for me. Truth is like puzzle, find out how to make water effect. I have taken several days, because it's a picture that I got tired mentally. But finally it is finished.

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?
