Josh Groban by D17rulez Josh Groban by D17rulez

:damphyr: Josh Groban...

Dear watchers/friends,

It's been a long time since I uploaded new work. I've been inactive on DeviantArt due to health problems/ personal reasons/ artblock and I just had no time.

I really hope my DeviantArt friends are doing fine and I really miss talking to alot of you guys and girls.

I also hope that people didn't forget about me and still like watching my artwork for inspiration etc :hug:

Well... it's not that I havent been drawing anything... I drew some portraits for people which I wont upload on the internet. And I drew this one.

The amazing singer Josh Groban.
Maybe not everybody knows him. He is such a sweet person and has a beautiful voice.

The reason I drew him is that I went to his concert two weeks ago :excited: I brought my drawing with me and gave it to the security. The security first couldn't believe it was an actual drawing. But when they looked closer and when I showed them the work in progress they where stunned. They told me they would give the drawing personally to Josh. Later after the show a security woman recognized me and told me that they gave the drawing. At that time I wished I could have seen Josh his face. His concert was amazing!

Funny fact: At the day I went to his concert, I finished this drawing... I was very stressed about the idea I could not finish it on time. I worked hours and hours on this drawing the week before the concert. I left the part of his jacket white on purpose ( and maybe because otherwise I wouldnt make it on time to catch my train to Amsterdam :XD: )

:damphyr: Tools:
Used: 2H, 4H 6B, 0.5 mm mechanical pencil, Tortillion for blending, kneaded eraser
Time: around the 35 hours
Size: A4
Paper: 200 g/m2 paper

Thanks for looking! :heart:
I hope you all like it.

Oh my gosh...this is beautiful. It looks exactly like... well, exactly like a photograph of him. This must have taken hours...It's really incredible that you drew that. And just as incredible that Josh himself actually got to see it...
Speaking of Josh Groban, and going to his concerts,
he was really great yesterday, when he played here on his In The Round Tour.
