Graphite pencil on Fabriano Artistico 300gm paper A2. The title comes from the Movie "The big Lebowski" and the nickname kind of stuck with him.

You nailed this one completely, much like your other artworks.  Amazing to say the least.  It would be fun to actually appreciate your work on display outside of the internet.

Thanks very much, i remember doing shows at the end of art school, college and uni ... i always got so nervous and nearly made myself ill with worry. It would be nice one day if i ever had the courage and enough money to do so ... as long as i could be far away from it  all lol.

This really does look like a black and white photo of Jeff Bridges. I'm just flabbergasted at how impeccable the likeness is.

Damn... What a drawing! This is so spot on that it hurts... Look at this hair, the facial hair, the skin... this smirk... WOW... You take these things to impossible levels... I tried this too, and I am not unhappy with mine, but yours makes me squirm with envy... 0ACT003-JeffBridges by nickmos

Thank you, one of my personal faves to be honest, i learned a lot doing this one and it was the first time i had gone so large on a portrait ever.
