Do not use in any way without my written permission!

I FINALLY FINISHED IT :clap:! This drawing took me ages to complete! I'm not entirely satisfied with the outcome, but I guess it's okay. The idea was to get faster at drawing but it turned out to be a hair drawing exercise... however at some point I didn't even look at the hair on the reference pic anymore, I just drew what I thought might look like hair... Plus I decided to leave away his necklace since the thought of drawing it gave me stomache pain.

Actually, during the last few hours I was on the brick of tearing it into tiny pieces and flushing them down the toilet, but I couldn't do it. All those hours would have been wasted!

WIPs:


Time spent drawing: 34 hours and 15 minutes :faint:
Materials used:
- HB mechanical pencil
- HB, 2B, 3B, 5B, 7B and 9B pencils
- kneaded eraser
- blending sticks (and my finger... :disbelief:)
Size: A4
Title: Phrase from 30STM's "Vox populi".

This is one of the most striking images I've seen! The movement captured is sensational and really personifies Jared's personality. The choice of black and white further adds a darkness and mystery to the piece, making the image even more enticing. This piece his highly original, far from your average portrait, screaming style and impact effortlessly. Having also looked at some previous work, your talent is superb, able to capture the personality of a character with such ease. I look forward to viewing further deviations, with the confidence the quality and impact of this piece will be present in your future work; a true artist.
