Hey! I finally graduated grad school! So that means I finally have time to art again, yay! I was feeling really rusty, and thought it would do me good to bone up on drawing male faces and facial hair, so this is what happened. I've been on an Iron Man and Sherlock Holmes binge recently, so of course visions of RDJ have been swirling about like an opiate fog in my head. Mechanical pencil in my sketchbook.

Yes, I am a lefty; put that spiral to the right now, yeeeaaahhhhh!!



How about some process pics, since that's my usual modus operandi?

Excellent.  Not a bad image to have swirling in your head.   Wink

i like the process pictures. i tend to work all over building up layers instead of one area at a time building up the dark areas.

Thanks, all! Jen, I tend to work right to left and try to flesh out the majority of the shading and detail as I go, because I'm a lefty and tend to drag my hand and smear what I've already drawn, otherwise. I used to do the whole thing at once in layers, but it just doesn't work as well for me, with the hook-handed way I hold the pencil.
