Jason Bourne by RTyson Jason Bourne by RTyson
:D

Matt Damon as Jason Bourne

He took me over 200 hours to draw, but I'm happy I took my time.

A2 Bristol board (16''x22") (40 x 55 cm)
4H, 3H,2H, H, HB and 8B wooded pencils
HB, H, 3B & 4B 0.5 mechanical pencils
No Blending.

Hope you like him and thanks to everyone who encouraged me along the way. :hug:

There's a bucket full of WIPs in my scraps if you'd like to check out my progress [link]

Working on Bourne [link] to give you an idea of the size of the drawing

I've added a couple of close-up pics

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-10-19
Words cannot describe what Jason Bourne by *RTyson has to show in its dark hues of pencils. There is no reason why it should be held high, and yet it has every reason. The talent and the effort displayed by this work is beyond the dimensions of the words. ( Suggested by princepal and Featured by MidnightExigent )

Your skill with pencil art borders on the realms of the fantastic. I am dumbstruck. Not to mention that Jason Bourne is one of my favorite characters in any live-action movie. Very, very well done!

How in the hell did you get such a solid deepo black? The shine always messes with me and I result to charcoal if I want black... Aside from Diego fazo, I've never seen such black graphite.

I used an 8B Derwent Graphic pencil and I do small overlapping circles while turning the pencil so it always taking more graphite from the edge of the lead rather than a smooth area, if that makes sense? I don't build up the layers using harder pencils for the really dark areas as I would with lighter tones as the Bristol board soon gets loaded and can't take anymore.  What brand pencils are you using and on what type of paper?

I use staedtler, and generals charcoal. I'm still getting my bearings on products. Either Bristol, or Arches hot press 140lb. I have heard that Derwent gets really black by others. I have experimented with the generals 9xxb. It's solid black with little shine. But I've found charcoal will cover in half the time. I guess it's a personal preference, and everybody has their own signature. I get a bit frustrated with the waxy buildup of soft graphite. Like I said, I'm just beginning to learn and the help is much, much appreciated!

Haha, the slightly loopy and/or talent Ruth :D

Course is going well. Just completed first semester, had portfolion assessment (more expense it never ends - this time round we don't have to mount) handed in nearly 5000 words worth of art history essays and I'm specialising this semester in Painting and Printmaking workshops, we have one full day for each and some nice tutors. It's been quite full on and have had nearly 4 full days a week of lectures/workshops, but this semester will be less busy. I am learning a hell of a lot and really glad I chose it as I like the structure of workshops and having proper tutor time.

Not met many people though. Lots of folk have come from A-Level, and it's smaller this year - but that's better for teaching quality.

Missing the old lot but I remember you still vividly. We will have to arrange a better meet up and bring our various new artworks aand discoveries with us!

How is your course? Do you learn a lot/get to try a lot of different practices? What's the travelling like?

yep, just overlapping pencil strokes in circles, blending would have smoothed away some of the detail so I had to do it without :)
