'Daniel Craig' 007 James Bond by Pen-Tacular-Artist 'Daniel Craig' 007 James Bond by Pen-Tacular-Artist
I chose to draw Daniel Craig as James Bond he has not got your typical hollywood features. Also I tend to draw male portraits that have alot of hair (like stubble or beard) in the past as i found it made the drawing processing easier for me as i could rely on the hair to make my drawing look good. But this will be a good test for me as he has no beard, and as he is blonde he has hardly any visible eyebrows and his hair is very short.

The drawing was done on A4 Bristol Board paper using standard and mechanical graphite pencils. Approximately 25 hours to complete.

Here are some of my other graphite drawings.

I'm a big fan of James Bond. The whole shaken, not stirred feel never gets old! Daniel Craig certainly isn't the best Bond yet, but he's definitely one of the better ones. As usual, i really like the hair texture. Its definitely on of your strong points in all your artwork. You have finally mastered the lip shading technique too.
The suit could have used a tad more detailing and not to nitpick , but you missed out the top shirt button. Great picture otherwise. Your artwork is always a treat for the eyes and always takes a while for it to all sink in. :)
What do you think?

Wow I love how this turned out.
You really captured his facial features, like his lips and ears, but I feel like the shadows on the left side of his face
are a little to emphasized (if you get my meaning 0.0). But it's still easy to recognise him as Daniel/James Bond, so great job!
Especially since you think portraits without stubble are very hard... you can't see that you think it's difficult, it's really great :)

Looks really awesome, just like him, only I think the indent on the left side of his face is a little too defined. As for the rest, the shirt is clean and crisp, looks very nice. The hair is pretty awesome as always. AND of course without stubble he still looks fine xD.

Thanks, yeah i'm pretty happy with this one, as i wasn't sure if i could pull it off but did. The definition on the face was tough as i usually have the stubble to help me out. But i can feel i'm improving so will continue to push myself with portraits till i hit a wall, then i'll leave them for a while.

Well, I had absolute faith you would pull it off haha. Improving? Impossible, I think you are already at the top :D. Well it seems so haha. Your portraits cease to amaze, lets hope you will never hit a wall :).

Thanks, but i'm no where the top yet, google 'hyperealist artists' like 'Paul Cadden' and 'Kelvin Okafor' and you'll know what i mean. Theres 3 stages i need to hit, the 1st is realstic (which i'm at now, and need to keep to), 2nd photorealistic, and finally the 'wall' which is 'hyperrealistic'. It's gonna be tough but i'm one stubborn person (i've improved alot in 6 months) so even if it takes 30 years i won't stop, so sit back and enjoy the ride, XD.
