New (old) art!

This is a portrait of McKay (from Stargate: Atlantis) that I drew back in 2006. It was published in the print zine Surfacing, the rights for which have now reverted back to the artists.

Medium is pencil -- I don't recall what hardness, but from the rough texture, I'm guessing I used more 2B and 4B than HB.

Again, another fantastic piece! :wow: One thing I really enjoy drawing when it involves sketching is the clothing. You did great work with McKay's and Shepp's uniform, both regular and special ops.

Same comment for this drawing.

I think he's a bit young.

McKay is 40, right?
