Once in a while when i finish a drawing, i feel that i've accomplished something, and this is one of those drawings as i've really pushed myself. As my watchers know i've always struggled with portraits (and still do), but like when i turned a corner with my spiderman fanart drawing, i feel i've finally turned a corner with portraits with this one. Coincidently like my spiderman drawing, they both have reflections over the eyes and both were my first drawings with a full background firstly for fanart and now for a portrait.
I've also been wantig to draw reflection on sunglasses since i finished the spiderman drawing which had reflection in his eyes. And I managed to find a great photo (don't know who it is), with lots of reflection in the glasses, and even though i didn't like the person in the photo. And i must point out that he has an odd mouth which i just copied and i just went with it.
The drawing is also only A4, but still took 35-40 hours over 3 days. And i'm embarrased to say that i spent nearly 10 hours of that on the reflections in the glasses. But i have managed to get every last detail from the photo into the reflection.
Drawing was done A4 bristol board with graphite standard and mechanical pencils
Here are some of my other graphite drawings.
