Bruce Willis... Last man standing by Statham75 Bruce Willis... Last man standing by Statham75
Old school tough guy Bruce Willis...

This one was really fun for me, seeing as how I was able to employ some new skills I picked up along the way. There are some things I could have done a little more thoroughly, but I'm ok with leaving it as is... hope you like it!

SSG Marshall Statham, US Army

materials:
generic ref. pic from the web
mech pencils(.3mm) 2H, 3H, 2B, 3B, 4B
other mech pencils, 2H, 3H, B, 2B, 3B, 4B, 6B
white gel pen
Crappy recycled sketch paper, about 8.5x11 in size
tissues
blending stump
my trusty kneaded erasure
Starbucks coffee
3 fights with the cat (get off my desk!)
4 Days

enjoy :)

Just checked it out and added it to my collection. :w00t: It's looking fantastic thus far. I imagine it will be another fave once you've completed it :nod: You put out nothing but the best so I expect no less ;)

Yes, it definately is :nod: That's what makes all of the difference when it comes to hyper realism ;) I admire that aspect of this one. It's realism at its best :w00t:

As usual, a sickly brilliant drawing! You are as fantastic as always! Can't think of any critique to give.. but imo the left eye looks a bit flat. Perhaps that was the way the eye actually looked in that angle though. Otherwise, a great work of art!

Thanks for the comment, friend...ya, there are always dangers in choosing a ref pic that isn't sharp and well defined.. The one I used was really grainy and the eyes area was in deep shadow. I can tell ya however, that I made it look just like the ref as far as dimensions,.. Only changes i made were to some of the values ... Thanks again, and drop by anytime ! :)

Thanks! I had lotta fun with this one... Actually an easier picture to draw than Sarah Connor, but more details in the skin made it look really good.. I'm happy with it:)

Thanks, I discovered the many uses of a white gel pen on this one:)

Interesting that you used white gel pens. I read that with some white gel pens, ink turns yellow after a while on a discussion, have you experienced that?

I'm still new to a lot of these techniques that most you guys already know, so I may or may not have made a critical art mistake, who knows.. Lol
Oh well, I guess we will wait and see :D

Oh no you havt made a mistake!!
Ive never used them myself, and other people wrote that theres not a problem with white Gel. I just wanted to get your opinion before I try and use them myself. Im also looking for an alternative to the "leaving areas white" technique, because I keep forgetting to:)

well, I either mark them off with a light lead boundary, and then go back and smudge across that line a little so it disappears, or I use the heck outta a kneaded eraser :)

Well Ive wrecked a lot of drawings by rubbing holes in the paper, so gonna try out white ink or white gels. :)
