Ewan McGregor by Cataclysm-X Ewan McGregor by Cataclysm-X
Hah! Take that! Am I fast or what?

Ewan McGregor is a fantastic actor and I so love his roles in Star Wars, Moulin Rouge and Big Fish... Ewan, you handsome bugger, you got yourself a new fan. :D

While I was working on this portrait mom dropped by:
Mom: 'Hey what'cha drawing?'
Me: 'A portrait of Ewan McGregor! <3'
Mom: 'Okay'
Me: 'Wait, I'll show you... *gets portrait* Now tell me, what do you think? (: '
Mom: 'I think he really needs to clean his nails! Look how dirty they are, ew!'
Me: '.....'

Hmmm not exactly the answer I was hoping for. Thanks for being so honest, mom :lmao: :heart:

Anyway, where was I... oh right, Ewan. :) Somehow I always manage to write his name the wrong way, like Eawn. And pronounced it like 'Eewun'. What's wrong with me! :noes:

The face was a total piece of (delicious) cake, as well as the background and the dark hair... Well... the entire drawing was easy to do, except for the hair in front of his face. And that's about it. :)

I came to realize my descriptions are getting weirder and weirder everytime I submit a new drawing. :crazy: But it's good to have a laugh, don't you think?

Stuff I used:
  • 4H, 2H, H, HB, B, 2B & 3B mechanical pencils

  • 6B regular pencil

  • black crayon pencil <---- is new <3 yes it is!

  • crappy A4 sketchbook paper

  • Tissues for blending

  • Time spent: approx 12 hours...?

    Omg, I'm going to get y'all a surprise yah :D I had a very cool idea popping into my head while I was walking with my baby Jake. Prepare for some craziness x'D

    Work in progress can be found here!:
    WIP 1

    :star: Now available as print!!! :star:

    Your work is amazing. I'm from Mexico and I would ask: where is it possible to get different hardness for mechanical pencils mine? is there a web site? Here it is difficult to get them. Thank you.

    Oh my god, could I buy this from you?
    Lacigam Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2010  Hobbyist
    I am SO ridiculously envious I don't knwo what to do with myself! I was drawing him the other day (cause no right mind can get tired of staring at him) and this is aobut 100 times better than mine. I'm wondering if I could ever be as half as good as you... If I practice enough, do you think it's possible? But then you said this was EASY !!

    And I enjoyed your description. This is beautiful, adding to favourites. (god, i hate you)
    Lacigam Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2010  Hobbyist
    oh, I forgot. The only criticism I have is that he looked too flawless. His skin looks perfect, as well as his hair. It'd be interesting to make it more "realistic".. But then I have no idea how you'd go about doing that so I'll shut up now.

    i can't believe thisss! :iconilavplz:

    InLoveWithRemusLupin Featured By Owner Feb 4, 2010
    LOVE LOVE LOVE Ewan McGregor! Your drwing is fntastic and I am favorting it RIGHT now! It's a little upsetting actually, I was JUST reading a magazine and it showed two snapshots about Ean McGregor and Jim Carey, one with bth of them smiling in the picture (because they've just been dubbed Knights of something!!) And in the bigger picture..they kissed -.- I do not like to see my future husband kissing Jim Carrey; or any other man for that matter! haha
    Awesom drawing again!

    I promise I don't bite...unless the full moon's out
