Rembrandt study  by akarudsan Rembrandt study  by akarudsan

[UPDATE] Decided to update the drawing a little bit and make it like master intended for his hat ;) (not all the way but closer)...and touched a little bit more on the eyes to make more alive.
Rembrandt study sketch. For some reason it’s not an easy subject to study. I didn’t bother with the full composition and the exact tone of the background and the hat and the ear.

Charcoal pencil on newspaper. Smudging with a finger.

And this is how I was making it: I was holding this book in my left hand and drawing with my right ;)

You definitely have drawing skills; it's kinda amazing that you didn't know this before 2015.  I'm a fan.

Fantastic study!  I can see why it was a struggle however, a difficult angle for the eye placement, not to mention you having to hold up the book during the process haha :D Well-accomplished

Very nice. Fabulous expression, it could almost be by the master himself. I'm serious, you've really captured the era.  I agree with one of your commentators, I like the eyes, there's a real person behind those eyes.

Thanks :) Actually I just modified a little more, including small touchups on the eyes. I think I made them slightly better than before ;)
