Captain Jack Sparrow.

Done with a 4B graphite pencil & a Tombow eraser for highlights on A3 paper. It took approximately 70 hours over the course of 8 days.

I had two weeks where I could do nothing but this, and that's exactly what I did! It completely reversed my sleeping pattern so I am now 100% nocturnal. Hope you like it :D

awesome, how did you get it soooo dark? can't be a normal 4b? thats a lot more grey and never so intense black
CameronHarperArt's avatar
Haha thanks. The "intense black" areas were done by pressing as hard as I could with the pencil then rubbing in/smudging with a tortillon to get it as dark as it could possibly go.. The drawing itself is only a fraction lighter than it is here, it was just case of lowering the brightness using GIMP. Hopefully for the drawing i'm currently working on I won't have to since i'm using a 7B pencil :P

Hope this helps!
