'Predator' graphite drawing by Pen-Tacular-Artist 'Predator' graphite drawing by Pen-Tacular-Artist
A graphite drawing of the 'predator' which I done to compliment my 'Alien' drawing [link].

The predator along with alot of other classic sci-fi films from the 80's is one of my favourite films, and the predator character is an iconic alien design up there with the 'Alien'.

Here are some of my other 'fanart' graphite drawings.






The drawing was done on A3 bristol board with standard and mechanical graphite pencils.

The drawing was done from a predator toy ad, the reference i used is here [link]. But I had to add lots of extra details such as the nodules on the head, skulls on the suit etc.

I am quite the fan of Predator. It was by far one of the best movies made in that time. I am overjoyed to see a perfect rendering of him in all his glory. I am especially happy to see that you drew him without his protective mask, therefore showcasing his true face. I like this artwork so much that I was inspired to actually made my own version of this, nowhere as good as this but still an attempt. The shading is truly exquisite and the eyes look truly evil and malicious.
A truly fantastic job on your part...

Wow, this is a really cool drawing of Predator.  I have always been a big fan of predator, and I even have my own drawing of him, though not nearly as good as this one.

I was a huge fan of Predator and also Predator II. Although, between them I think I preferred II. Your detail here is amazing, and your choice of making him appear without the mask makes it all the more better. Do you have a version with his mask? I would love to see it if you do.

When I saw this picture in my DA watch message box, I almost spat my drink all over my computer screen. This drawing is simply phenomenal! His eyes look very intense as if he's either preparing to hunt or just submersed himself into his prey's environment. The details of his skin and his suit are very well done!
'Predator' has got to be my favorite movie of all time. The idea of how these creatures work, as well as their culture is one that truly inspired me back when I first saw this film, as well as the other Predator movies. Nothing beats the original.

Thanks, just seen your gallery which is great. So i'm pretty sure with your talent, if you had the patience you could probably do it as well. And this detail is nothing compared to the headache i'm having on the detail on my current'spiderman' drawing (the 'WIP' is in my gallery, so have a look tosee why).

Thanks alot. I'm trying to get into the game designing proffesion but have had difficulties (it's along story i might tell u sometime). And i know i said this last time, but the comment section doesn't feel right until i can see your id and name on it. I know that sounds very odd but it's completely true, now it feels right.

I know it's actually quite weird. But i think it's because i was used to only seeing your id on the comments, when i started(i am very odd like that). But i'mGonna try and draw spiderman next, as him and wolverine are my favourite comic characters. But have to take my time as the suit has to be perfect.

Your drawing is great and i am not better than you. And like i said i have my strengths , which are 'macho'types of drwaings. But my weakness is that i struggle alot with softer drawings like females. Which you have nailed in your drawing, which is realy great.
