Portrait of Alan Rickman, A3, bristol, graphite pencils (2H to 8B), nearly 25h.

The WIP is available there : [link]

Great actor, great character ! I grew up with Harry Potter and I really loved Severus Snape, such an ambiguous figure ! :D

First portrait on bristol paper... The paper I used before was almost like bristol. Bristol is better for drawings, especially for the skin, but I think I prefer the other paper for the work of dark areas (the background for instance) and the clothes.

Hmmm and I really don't like drawing dark hair, I think I gonna draw again blond people :D

That is a very realistic drawing of Alan Rickman. I love it! It has the composition right and it really looks like a photo.

The sheer amount of detail in this had me stopping in my scrolling tracks and softly blurt, "holy shit," out loud. Impressive work.
