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

I met a traveller from an antique land Who said: `Two vast and trunkless legs of stone Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand, Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown, And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command, Tell that its sculptor well those passions read Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things, The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed. And on the pedestal these words appear — "My name is Ozymandias, king of kings: Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!” Nothing beside remains. Round the decay Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare The lone and level sands stretch far away.’
I’ve been listening to The Shining audiobook whilst painting this so I spent a bit more time on it than the previous ones - totally worth it, though. Went through an array of emotions finishing it off. 2 to go now.
WALTER WHITE: Jesse, look at me, you are a blowfish.
JESSE PINKMAN: What?
WALTER WHITE: A blowfish, think about it. Small in stature, not swift, not cunning, easy prey for predators, but the blowfish has a secret weapon, doesn't he? Doesn't he? What does the blowfish do, Jesse? What does the blowfish do?
JESSE PINKMAN: I don't even know what...
WALTER WHITE: The blowfish puffs up, okay? The blowfish puffs himself up four, five times larger than normal but why? Why does he do that? Because it makes him intimidating, that's why. Initimidating so that the other scarier fish are scared off and that's you. You are a blowfish. Don't you see? It's just all, all an illusion. It's nothing but air. Now, who messes with the blowfish, Jesse?
A digital painting from Al Capone. I love the mobster theme, so I will paint more (I guess). The next would be Lucky Luciano (not from the Boardwalk Empire, but exactly I love that series). Mypaint, Photoshop and wacom tablet
