Its hard not to like this guy - actor, wrestler, muscle man and an allround entertainer - sure he has made some bad choices with the movies he stars in - but dont we all :lol: comes across as an allround nice guy :)

Another drawing for my son - one of his biggest fans :)

Drawn on my usual bristol board smooth paper with a range of Faber-Castell 9000 pencils (just thought I would mention that in case they want to send me some free samples :)) and Staedler Mars Lumograph 8B for the black background - Mono Zero erazer and plenty of time circa25 hours.

Hope you like it

I know you must get this same comment a lot, but this looks exactly like him. I showed my mom, who is a big fan, and she even said the same thing. =P I looked through your gallery at a couple of your other works. They're absolutely brilliant and beyond detailed! :love:
 Keep up the great work! I hope you have a good day! :aww: :heart:

My son is a massive 'Rock' fan (who isnt :lol:) and I drew this for him, I have another portrait of him that i have started from his new TV series 'Ballers' - keep an eye out for that one :)  

Thanks for the kind comment - I will try very hard to enjoy today - You do the same :)

Strange question: do you find the 9000 erasing differently than the Goldfaber? I've done some tests on various papers including bristol and for some reason I find the Goldfaber's erasing much better than the 9000s, which would seem to be more versatile for correcting mistakes.

BTW, I like how you accounted for the shift in focus from the ear to the face.

No a strange question at all - in fact a very interesting one for me.  I have never used Goldfaber - so I cannot compare, but I will definitely go and buy some Goldfaber's pencils to see if they work better - always looking for new materials so thanks :)

Thanks for the comment also :)

Well, they're both Faber-Castell, but the Goldfaber (blue & gold) seems to be the cheaper versions but they've erased better than the 9000s, so I was wondering if you'd tried them and found one to be preferable to the other.
