Although i still need to practice portraits, i feel i've made good progess with male portraits, so i will be mixing practiceing portraits with fanart. And using all the techniques i'vel earnt drawing male portraits, which still allows me to practice, as theres been loads of drawings i wanted to do but didn't because i hated drawing faces. But i will still need to practice boring old female portraits, as i'm still struggling a bit with them.
Indiana jones was not really my first choice, but my older sister requested it so i decided to do it first. Although indiana jones movies, were defintely some of my favourite movies when younger, but i have not watched them for ages so don't really know if they've aged well.
I found this done very well. I recognized the actor/character before reading the title of your art. The shading was very well done, along with the details. I enjoyed how the art looked real. It's a good inspiration for any artist, whether a digital, traditional, or literature artist. You should keep up the good work on your graphite drawings. Some of this may be biast, due to the fact Harrison Ford is my favourite actor, however, I found it quite pleasing to eye. Your drawing is complicated, yet simple. Much like science. I'd have to say that this was done extremely well, so ignore my first sentance. This is one of the best works of art I've ever seen. Congratulations.
Okie dokie. Well lets do it as always, negatives then positives.
First off I would like to talk about his hat. the bottom part of his hat is brilliant, however I think the top part lacks fine details, to me it looks like it's just plain crosshatching not the actual fibers of the hat.
Secondly, I will talk about the right side of the hat, the black streak (shadow) could be slightly subtler in my opinion.
Next, his jacket on the bottom left, it looks like random squiggles rather than dirt. I should say most of it looks like dirt, but theres a few squiggles that make up a ring kind of shape, to me it distracts my eye from everything else. Thats only at second look however.
Now the positives
The button on his shirt is amazing, along with the shirt and jacket texture itself. I think it looks great together.
The eyes as always are beautiful and very well done, they have that right amount of glisten in them.
You nailed the lips right on with the reference pic as well.
Lastly the skin texture on this one has enormous amounts of detail which is good for your goal. I think it fits in, maybe because it looks like the bristle is more definite in this one, thus meaning that there can be lots of skin detail yet still making the bristle stick out.
Another awesome portrait by you of course, I think adding a blurred background is a good way to add depth and draw attention to the viewer.
Well done as always . I think you're nearly there, just a few more things to go!! Best of luck to your future projects and your ultimate goal.
