Traditional drawing of Death (Supernatural). I just had to draw him, because he's one of my favourite characters (This may sound strange for anyone who doesn't watch SPN...) and Julian Richings portrayal of Death is just amazing. I watched a lot movies and tv shows and he also has the best character introduction scene I've ever seen (it's just perfect: camera, slow motion, song, pale horse/car, one way road sign and the moral XD): youtu.be/PghNEN-29CQ

I wanted to do a colored portrait, but didn't want to use too much color for Death, so I also tried something new and only used warm gray for the marker base layer of his skin (instead of skin color markers). So the color only results from the colored pencils.

Reference was a screencap of Julian Richings as Death from the TV show "Supernatural" (episode 5x21 - Two Minutes to Midnight).

Paper DIN A4 190g/m²; Faber-Castell Polychromos artists' colour pencils, Copic Ciao and Sketch marker; time: ~20 hours

Thanks!^^ It's probably the smoothest stuff I've ever drawn (marker + pencil "powder").

I don't know if you're a Supernatural fan, but if you want to see his introduction: Death intro youtube

If you're watching the series from the start, wait to watch his intro. Goosebumps I tell ya! (even my husband agrees! :D)
