Harry Potter by casparofambrose Harry Potter by casparofambrose
Ive done a handful of recognizable faces of yesteryear, so I thought Id try an iconic face from my generation (even if it is a fictional character). It feels like a while since Ive drawn a male portrait - and since Ive worked from a picture with such crisp detail. It was so crisp and textured, in fact, that it began to feel less like a portrait and more like an excuse to do unnecessary acrobatics with detail. I found out I'm not a fan of this type of thing and I'm just glad this is done.

The face takes up almost an entire sheet of 19 X 24 paper ergo those are two (one and a half?) of the biggest eyebrows Ive ever done, my goodness. But I must say Daniel has beautiful eyes and those heavy dark brows only accentuate that.

I gave up on the stubble but I felt like there was so much going on everywhere else that it wasnt a big deal. Also, sooo much solid black. Too much graphite. My favorite 6B pencil died during the process.

Anyway, materials:
#2 pencil, 6B pencil, 7B pencil
q-tips, Kleenex, vinyl eraser, electric eraser
19 X 24 bristol
Levels adjusted in photoshop tried as hard as possible to get rid of the abundant graphite glares.

Had to sign it digitally after my pencil signature disappeared in the background. -_- I thought of just adding a watermark but eh. Curious - what do you think of watermarks? Worth it?

This is probably the most gorgeous portrait in pencil that I have seen in recent times.
So many little details that my head spin. I can not believe that this can be drawn.
Awesome!
