Iceman by danzka Iceman by danzka
Val Kilmer in the form of 'Iceman' (Top Gun). Did this one a few years ago with a photo as a model ;) (Wink)
I can't for the life of me do a portrait with the subject actually sitting in front of me, but give me a photo and all I need is patience.

Old drawing you say, pretty good.
The reason drawing from life is harder because your eye has to pick up and translate the light and the form, and you can move about and the form moves as well, but in a photo everything's already fixed and determined, from that you can easily pick up visual cues and translate them. As everything else, it just needs practice, I hope you do try drawing from life, take a few life drawing classes, where you just sit and draw a model. It's an enjoyable experience and you learn a lot from it.
This is a pretty good drawing you have here.

Some really good use of drawing from real life. I think the jaw is a little off but this is a detail that can be worked out. Your shading is not at the level of your ability to draw shape, but that will come with time. Really, an impressive and quite interesting piece.

very nice sketch. It looks like Iceman at about age 15 though... maybe that was the intent, and if not it still looks great. Val K is a talented actor though... really good in The Saint
