Have you any idea how excruciatingly difficult it is to scan black paper? Anyhow, I wanted to try something different by drawing on black paper, see how it would turn out. I think it turned out pretty well. I had more difficulty scanning it than I did drawing the bloody thing.

I love Game of Thrones and I loved Tywin, even though he was bit of an ass, but Charles Dance is a brilliant actor, how could I not? :)

Please don't repost on any other sites without my permission, thank you.

It's awful scanning, I tried taking photographs of it too, and nothing was working out, so I gave up and went with the best one I could get lol

While I am not familiar with this show, I have to say that the tenebrism used in this piece is excellent. This is achieved with a great amount of contrasts in the areas that are exposed to the light as opposed to the areas in shadow. Your understanding of the human form also helps a great deal in making this piece effective, especially in the wrinkles in the man's face. All in all, this piece is a great piece of fanart and art in general.

Really great work and choice of ref. Like you decided to draw some less popular character as subject of fanart. Scaning/editing drawing on black paper doesn't even come close to scanning very detailed graphite ACEO drawing in my experience. ;)
