Traditional drawing of Christoph Waltz. He's a great actor ("Inglourious Basterds", "Django Unchained", "Spectre",...) and I would probably kill for an autograph on this drawing! ;)
Now I just have to finish the left WIP from my latest "work in progress upload". I wanted to start another project in the meantime, but usually it doesn't "feel" pretty good when too many unfinished drawings stack up, so I try to finish those first (although I didn't draw for one week)...

Reference was a picture from a photoshoot (Nino Munoz 2012).

Paper DIN A4 190g/m²; Faber-Castell Polychromos artists' colour pencils, Copic Ciao and Sketch marker, uni-ball Signo pigment ink um-153 white; time: ~15 hours

Please don't upload my pictures somewhere else without my permission. Don't infringe copyright!

Here are some other traditional drawings:

No digital editing no where? Honest?

I just scan it or take a photo of it, crop it, adjust the brightness and contrast until it looks like the drawing on paper (my scanner hates me and it's always too bright) and add a watermark (and sometimes remove big fluff with a stamp tool if there was "dirt" on the scanner). That's everything. :) People ask me if that's a photo when they see a drawing in person, so yes it really looks like that.

Looking a bit closer, it could be the brightness and the effect of the scanning after all....

Captures his personality and acting style perfectly. If it were a photograph, it would have still been exceptional in its insight. However, with the added hyperrealism, it is simply unbelievable. Excellent job and I look forward to more amazing works. =D
