gregory house

Here is my new work, the second after I started my adventure on DA.
Up to now, this is the drawing that took me more effort. It is not the most difficult or the most intense, but perhaps that's what I feel more complete. It 'a drawing that I needed to do to give something to the television's star that gave me so much in recent years, House is a character 'credible', although uncommon and the series, from my point of view, has the best television scripts.
Farewell, House, I owe you one: D

Okay so the first thing i thought was -"hey its another photography on deviantart" and I was going to pass by, until i saw "Traditional Art". my jaw just dropped, you have no idea how surprised i was.

* This pencil drawing is a masterpiece, done by someone who has the most patient in the world... this artist is a human copy machine if you must say- even better. Getting those little details, the tiny skin wrinkles, the details of the retina, the pupil eye lashes that copy machines cant produce.. its just perfect. Man, just look at the details on the hand! the hair, the nails.. jeez. I'm just speechless.

Your technique is flawless and i don't think it could improve any further. This drawing will make anyone have their jaws drop!

If there was a reference picture for this, and I'm assuming you have used one; the originality is not there, as all portraits do. so i have to give a 4 on it!

This is amazing! I too work in pencil but I use charcoal for the really dark values. Do you still get that strong Graphite shine on your drawings? Also, what are the different hard/soft leads you use? I saw you said you use 6b for the darkest values. Do you use other ranges of leads? Thanks!

Hi Joi
Thanks for your kind words. :-)
Yes the graphite shine is always a problem. You can try to avoid it using a dry brush on your darkest tone (and then another layer of graphite and so on).
I use leads from 9h to 9b in different way (9h is useful for indenting)

ciao amico mio! Mi chiedo se ti sei sbavature pennello, scintille capelli erano di gomma o shadowing si stava lasciando il riverbero naturale del foglio? abbracciare!

For drawing hair and fur is very useful to me knowing a couple of techniques called indentation and negative drawing. In my opinion the light on the paper must be the paper itself :D
