Hugh Jackman 'Wolverine' graphite drawing by Pen-Tacular-Artist Hugh Jackman 'Wolverine' graphite drawing by Pen-Tacular-Artist
I've been meaning to reshade my 'wolverine' drawing I done back in october last year, so decided to do it today. And I know some people will prefer the original over this one, but for me this is how how I originally wanted it to look, but i lacked the skills to do ot back then. So for better or worst i took the plunge and did it, luckily i still have the original scan, just in case.

Anyway, Wolverine is one of my all time favoutite characters from since i was a kid, and Hugh Jackmans wolverine in the x-men movies was spot on. So i decided to do a graphite drawing in honour of wolverine, but this defintely won't be the last.

The drawing was done on A3 Bristol Board paper using standard and mechanical graphite pencils.


Here are some of my 'fanart' graphite drawings.

I am a HUGE fan of Wolverine and have always wondered how Hugh Jackman's face managed to resemble the face of the comic character so well. I must say that you really have done justice to this kickass character. I really like the way you set his expression into one of confidence. He seems to be taunting the viewer by raising his eyebrow and displaying his claws. I was disappointed that they did not give him his classic suit in the movie but this is fine to. I have absolutely no negative comments or suggestions to make about this picture . The shading you've done to the pic compliments it in a way, but probably you should have made the whole background dark..
Great job...

This is stunning. Wow. I mean, I love Wolverine, but that's not my reason for loving this. This is just talent and--I suspect--a lot of time and work! I've always wished I could do pencil drawing that are this realistic. Amazing work!

Wicked... You've done a perfect job with the hair, the facial details and especially the razor-sharp claws coming out of his hands. You've captured the personality of Wolverine, as well as Hugh Jackman (a brilliant Australian actor in his own right) with a deep sense of mystery and a keen attention span. It's as if he's looking very carefully around the landscape for trouble, claws at the ready.

Wonderful work for using just graphite pencils, I reckon it's worthy enough to join my Honorary class of favourites... Well done and thanks for sharing such a brilliant piece of work. =)

Good work...background doesn't need to be a near black value; like the light area. Maybe try to make a 'flash of light' quality in your next Wolverine. Dig it...:sun:

I really love how you give texture to everything -- you can tell the skin apart from the leather not only because of it being darker and lighter, but because the skin has a smoother texture and the leather looks more rough and the shine quality is different.

Thanks alot. This was an old drawing i just reshaded with some of the new techniques i've learnt. And i do actually shade the leather with alot more agression and with strokes, whereas the skin i shade very softly.

I actually prefer this one :). I like the depth with the background now rather than plain white, it gives it more "life" in a way I think.

I know, but i was to scared before as i did not want to ruin it. And I've actually rehaded my avengers drawing slightly, and rescanned a few of my other drawings. As some of the scans did not come out the way my drawings look like in real life.
