Do NOT use without my written permission!

I think I'm getting the hang of this ink thing :D. Actually, at the moment, I like painting with ink more than drawing with pencils; it's faster, less messy (I love not having to worry about smudging the annoying pencil dust!), great for creating contrasts, and you don't have to keep sharpening your pencils. So be warned; there are more ink paintings to come :D!

OK, where was I... oh yes. It's Ewan McGregor, one of my favourite actors of all time. Trivial fact: I wanted to draw this reference picture for a very long time, probably for more than 8 years. I didn't wait this long because I waited for my drawing skills to improve (although that would have made a pretty good reason =p), but because I forgot about the picture... until about a week ago. I watched I love you, Phillip Morris (crapy movie, b-t-dub) and was reminded again of how great an actor he is. So, naturally, I googled for drawable pictures of him, and that's how I rediscovered this particular one. I immediately knew I had to paint it! And THIS time, I even stapled the paper to a chipboard :-).

I'm very content with the result, although the background... meh! Didn't quite turn out the way I had imagined it, but I guess it's OK. The hair was easy to do, and - as I rediscovered - hands are actually pretty hard.
Yep, so, hope you like it as well. Comments are greatly appreciated :-).

Time: I'm guessing about 8 hours

Oh wow, I really like this one! It shows a lot of emotions, and the strong contrasts between the blacks and whites make it very powerful. Great job. :)
