'Al Pacino' graphite portrait



Decided to draw Al pacino as i found this odd but interesting photo of him and i'm really not sure why he has his fingers pointing at his eyes or a rubber band on his hand. This pic also was a good way for me to do big contrats between blacks and whites, which is something i need to really practice. I slightly changed the background from the reference pic as it was a litlle to dark and boring.

The drawing was done on A4 Bristol Board paper using standard and mechanical graphite pencils.

Here are some of my other graphite drawings.

I'm not a big fan of Al Pacino, but this is really good. I think you've finally mastered the art of shading detailed lips. I like the detailing you did around the eyes. The wrinkles came out real good. I also like the hair texture, especially that of the beard. The folds in the skin on his fingers came out real good too. I have to admit that I've never seen a sketch of Pacino before , so it very original. You have gotten really good at sketches of men and superheroes, the only thing left is for you to master sketching women and that doesn't seem to far away either when you take that Megan Fox portrait into consideration. Great job!
