All of these drawings I did in my 10th grade Art II class. The pictures were taken by my art teacher so I can't guarantee they're of the best quality.
The pictures go from the very first one I did (Johnny Depp) to the last (Joe Strummer). You can obviously tell I became more comfortable with the medium as I went along (I'm more used to computer-oriented art).
Sadly, my art teacher lost my portrait of Thom Yorke at the end of the year.
Johnny Depp, from a picture I found in a magazine. In real life it's pretty big, around 14 x 11.
A portrait of my older brother, Jon. The lips look strange because in the picture I based it off of he had the weirdest look on his face. Like he ate something sour.
Before doing this, I never realized what a meaty neck he has.
My favorite and the one my teacher lost.
Thom Yorke from Radiohead. Shading all of the dark spots was a bitch.
Joe Strummer. This is the last one I did, I finished it sometime around October. I don't like the shading on his left cheek, I'll try to fix it later. My pencils are different than the ones I used in class and you can tell if I make a mark with a different pencil.
I have another I did in my spare time of Trent Reznor but I can't seem to find it. I also have a half-finished one of John Lennon but I don't think I'll continue working on it because it isn't all that good.
