Tom Petty in Pencil n Charcoal by dwightyoakamfan Tom Petty in Pencil n Charcoal by dwightyoakamfan
- drawn in pencil, charcoal, and
metallic silver coloured pencil -

Took a couple of hours...

As most of you know, Charcoal is so, so hard to work with, because it smears horribly, and it can't draw over pencil, which makes it exceptionally hard when you first draw in pencil, but it's totally worth it in the end because it achieves the deep blacks that pencil just possibly can't when making shadows, or dark things like the lenses.

I also used a metallic silver coloured pencil because it also achieves some of the lightness and smoothness that the pencil can't, which I used for the lighter parts on his skin.

Oh, and I drew it on card paper (like the kind used in some greeting cards), so it would be more durable. It's a lot smoother than regular paper too, as you know. :)

And it's Tom Petty, around circa mid 80s... :D

Any critique or comments you have are
greatly appreciated and wanted!!! <3
