Tom Hanks Saving private Ryan
D-Day world war 2
fanart artist
Portrait
Graphite pencil drawing
fredrik eriksson

170g A4 (cheap schoolpaper quality)

The tools:
2B Mechanical pencil for grids and outlines
6B-9B Cretacolor Monolith Graphite Pencils
graphite stick
A package of erasers sharpened in all different shapes
and eraser pen
Blender and cotton sticks.

I like to challenge myself. The challenge this time was the rain effects. 
I chose this picture because in war you Will never know if the person behind you is friend or foe. 
And even the so called heroes is anxious and afraid. Tom Hanks was perfect in this movie that showed us that war is a dirty buisness with no winners.

Took Around 8+ hours to complete.

I hope you like it!

"I'll see you on the Beach" didn't go for about 2000 men that day. :(

Well done!

Absolutely! 

Epic in the sense of movies. But tragic in the sense of reality.

Absolutely magnificent. MC Escher level in terms of graphite skill.  How you were able to capture the out-of-focus Tom Seizmore in the background is unbelievable.
