Screaming agony

Reference is by talented, no: genius photographer Mehmeturgut :iconmehmeturgut:. I love his gallery! Here's the direct link to the reference:… .

When I found this picture, I got goosebumps all over and I just had to draw it. I actually started with the hand in the front (normally I start drawing the eyes) and then drew my way up to his head. When I got to draw his hair ... I tried to draw every! single! hair! ... no words, but after hours and hours I finally completed it.

Time I spent drawing: forever

- A4 paper
- HB mechanical pencil (0,5mm)
- 2B, 3B, 5B, 6B and 8B pencils
- a kneaded eraser

Hope you like it!

Thank you very much, also for contacting me first. Sure you have my blessing, it's kinda awesome to know that one of my drawings will be tattoo-ed on somebody's body forever. I'd love to see the end result, so if you could upload a picture here on dA or - if you don't want that - I can give you my personal email address so you can send me a picture that would be great. :-)
Thank you so much, I definitely will send you a picture when it's done, my customer will be very pleased, ill be tattooing it at the Liverpool tattoo convention in the uk so it should get lots of exposure, I will credit you in everything relating to this piece, thank you again

I peed. I thought this was a photograph and was nearly the most awesome expressive thing I've seen
The fact that you drew this
I peed.

It's people like you who give me hope for the art-world. I walk into the Tate Modern in London and see complete bullshit. The people of deviantart are the real artists of today not some of the crap that these art critics put in. It's people like you who should apply for "Show Me the Monet." You more than deserve a spot at these top end shows where shit gets bought.

Stay safe man!

Thank you very much for your lovely comment, you just made my day :cuddle:! I'm no fan of modern art either, and there are so many great artists here on dA, so it's a huge compliment for me that you consider me to be one of them :hug:! I always try to give my best and to improve with every new drawing, so it's nice to hear my art is appreciated :-)!

Hope you have a great day, and take care :rose:!
