Johnny Depp

I am on fire, even though I say so myself!
One drawing finished in less than one day and I'll be starting another one after dinner.

Of course it's finished so fast because I did not put as much detail in as usual, but more effort than my drawing of Brad Pitt that was done in the same notebook. And I know what people will say; don't draw like this in a notebook! But I like it and I don't care because compared to my usual drawings these are really simple.

Also, I am starting to really enjoy this cross-hatching! :D

- my brother's notebook (a4 size)
- 7B, 4B, 2B and 1H graphite pencils
- kneaded eraser
- reference picture
- ~8 hours

this is amazing. i didn't know you could do that with crosshatching.

Me neither. And it's so much faster than the way I usually draw! Plus, this way you can clearly see that it's a drawing from close by. It gives the drawing an extra dimension.

I agree. and i like this better than just drawing a copy of a photograph b/c the crosshatching style makes it unique.

I love your way to shade - not just this cross-hatching but also the other style you usually use/d, it's very capturing :)
I also love how you get the expressions of all those people correct and making the portraits so lively.

I still use the other style, I just have two to choose from now :). Thank you for the great compliment! :D
