Decided to darken the back ground and re upload this drawing that i did a few weeks ago, as the background although accurate to the reference pic was pretty odd and distracting.
I've chose to draw Denzel Washington firstly because i wanted to practice dark skin tones again after drawing 'Rihanna'. But also because his a great actor and was in one of my favourite movies 'Training Day', in which he deservedly one an oscar.
Once again drawing older people makes it easier to make them look more realistic because of all the lines and wrinkles. And i feel i'm speeding up when drawing as it only took me 23 hours rather than the usual 25-30 hours.
Here are some of my other graphite drawings.
