Duncan Phillips of Newsboys

This is the second in a series of four drawings of the current members of the band Newsboys. It is on 14 x 17 Bristol board with the actual drawing being approximately 11 x 17. As always, the original is much lighter than the scan. I've looked at this so long, I don't know that I've drawn everything that was in the reference. I'm sure I'll notice something missing after a few weeks!

I want to say a special thank you to Duncan Phillips who was nice enough to humor me and actually pick the reference picture on the left and okay the one on the right. I also want to thank Kim Schultz and my husband for enduring all the wips I showed them of this drawing!

Tools and time:

2B and HB mechanical pencils
2H to 6B regular pencils
kneaded eraser
pencil eraser
blending stumps and Kleenex
70 hours

You have an wonderful gallery.  I had to add this to my favorites due to the lighting and the metallic reflections........really amazing.

Thank you!  I'm so happy you like this drawing.  The reflections in the drum kit took a very, very long time to draw!

I saw the 70 hour figure.  My good friend is a professional drummer and I have seen endless gigs with many different kits in club lighting so your work really caught my eye.  Of course, many of your other works are equally eyecatching.
