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

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?

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.
This is one of the first drawings I have made with more than one person in it. From the left is Tuco Salamanca played by Raymond Cruz, Walter White played by Bryan Cranston and Jesse Pinkman played by Aaron Paul.
This is probably the most difficult drawing I have made, mostly because I had to draw three faces on 5.7 x 5.7 inches paper, and I also really struggled to draw the blurred effect on Walters face.
I used about 8-10 hours to create this drawing. I used a 4B and 6H pencil, an eraser, blending stump and tissue for blending.
Jesse: You either run from things or you face them, Mr. White. Walter: Now what exactly does that mean? Jesse: I learned it in rehab. It's all about accepting who you really are. I accept who I am. Walter: And who are you? Jesse: I'm the bad guy.
A quick little speed paint I did of Walter White from Breaking Bad, one of the greatest tv shows ever created. Seriously, everyone should watch this show, atleast give it a chance.
This was sitting in my hard-drive for forever now, decided to polish it up enough to were I felt comfortable uploading it. Wasn't really intended to be a finished piece, very messy, but I still like it.
