There's really not much I can tell you about this. Awesome Mr Tom Hiddleston as Magnus Martinsson from the tv series Wallander. Never seen it, to be honest... I've just wanted to draw the reference picture for a while now, and at first I was pretty eager to get started with it, but, as I drew on, I just wanted it to be done. I like Hiddles' profile very much, but now I wish I had chosen one where his lovely cheek bone is more visible *makes mental note*.

Time: I guess about 4 hours
Size: DIN A4 paper, but the drawing itself is only 8,7 x 20 cm / 3,43 x 7,87 inches small
Materials:
:bulletyellow: Smooth black paper for presentation / chalk illustration from CANSON
:bulletyellow: 0,5mm HB mechanical pencil
:bulletyellow: White, light grey, dark grey and black coloured pencils from Caran d'Ache
:bulletyellow: Blending stick, kneadable eraser, fixative
Reference picture

Comments and critiques are very much appreciated :-).

This kinda reminds me of a combination of a real face and a sculpture, but in a good way :aww: It's because of hard edges that define his facial features. I like that the strokes of pencil are visible. And his eyes are so lifelike!
The composition is nice, too! It looks as if he was facing some serious problems, but wasn't afraid of them... or maybe a little :lol:

Ha, it also reminds me of a sculpture. Don't know why, though (maybe you're right and it's because of the hard edges). Well, the strokes aren't that visible on the original, you can only see them this clearly because my scanner scans the drawing as IT sees it... Yep, that's actually exactly what I had in mind when I drew it; Tom Hiddleston, looking at a problem that lies ahead. A big black glackground has an eerie feeling, I think, and I'm happy to know that I was able to capture that with this drawing. :-)

Wow! I'm super impressed that you did this on black paper! Did you sketch it in a white pencil?
Reply
:iconarthawk87:
arthawk87 Featured By Owner Dec 9, 2012   Traditional Artist
Thank you :-)!
No, I did the sketch with a 0,5mm HB mechanical pencil. I made the sketch as light as possible so that when I went over it with the white and grey pencils you wouldn't see any of it.

Oh, I assumed graphite wouldn't show up on the black. Thanks for the info. :D

Yes, it does. Just give it a try, you'll find out pretty quickly if you'd rather do the sketch with a graphite or a white coloured pencil :-). And you're welcome :D.

Oh wow! :heart: Profiles always look so lovely on black paper. You did a great job on the shading; it's so smooth but still you made the highlights stand out. Great job on his eye as well, it looks very glassy and eye-like. :lol:

Oh my GOD, Franzilla! I LOVE the black space in front of him. I'm imagining it's a movie, and there will be a HAND coming into that space, soon. Any second now. A hand, moving slowly towards him, from slightly above him. *nods* Yes, yes, that's what's going to happen.

Also, he looks slightly older in this picture. I wonder why that is. I think it's got something to do with the mouth.

Fun fact; Wallander is Swedish, from the beginning. It's a show based on books by a Swedish author, and they're recorded in Ystad, which is a LOVELY little town in the south of Sweden. I was there, once, when I was an intern for another movie. Lovely, lovely town.

Hey, now that you mention it it really would have been great if there was a hand there... Maybe next time ;-).

But wait a minute. You did an internship for a movie? Really? That's so cool! What movie was it? And what did you do? I mean, were you in front of the camera, or did you do stuff like editing, or where you in charge of the props, or what? And yeah, my mum loves the Swedish Wallander movies! She loves Swedish movies in general, but especially the Wallander ones.

I know what you mean, I also think it has to do with the mouth... I suppose it's because he's pursing his lips in that disapproving way which makes it look like he has old-age lines around it. I should have invested a tad more time refining his mouth...

It was a really bad vampire movie called "Frostbite", and I did craft service! Which means I took care of the coffea and sandwhiches, the candy, the tea, the SOMETHING when people wanted something to eat ... MUCH more work than people believe! I was on set first, and I left last, because god help them if they couldn't get a hold of coffea ... It was a fun experience though, almost two months. I have never slept as little as I did during those months. On the bright side, I could see every part of the filming; because no one stops a girl with a cup of coffea on set. :p

Ahaha, I googled it. And it does look like a bad vampire movie, but I bet it was a great experience being on a film set and getting to have a look behind the scenes. Quick question: Björn Andersson is probably a pretty common name in Sweden, right? But, is there any chance he's the guy who played Tadzio in movie "Death in Venice"?

ihni Featured By Owner Dec 16, 2012
Uhm, I don't think so? I mean, it IS a pretty common name, after all. And hah, you googled it?! Yeah, well, the movie's no better than you think from watching whatever you found when you googled it, let me assure you ...
