Graphite on smooth Bristol (24cm-42cm)
In his role as Doctore from the Spartacus tv series. Reference used is a promotional piece from their website [link]. If you don't know the show he plays the role of teacher to slave gladiators.
It was good practice to do figurative work and to have a good workout with my 7B pencil which i have neglected and avoided. I made many changes for effect and i'm relatively happy with the result

Fan tastic (2 words). Finished the last series recently and it's one of my all-time favourite shows. This is a great tribute although there are so many brilliant characters they could fill a gallery on their own.

Thanks, i loved the whole series and there are so many great characters .. i would love to do more some day (their official website is full of fantastic reference photo's) but it had to be this one first .. the character was so cool and such a strong character.
