Tom Hiddleston as Prince Hal - WIP1 by arthawk87 Tom Hiddleston as Prince Hal - WIP1 by arthawk87
Gonna scrap this later.

This is only a detail of my newest project. Depicted is Prince Hal (from BBC's tv series The Hollow Crown - King Henry IV (part 2)), played by Tom Hiddleston.

I wasn't even going to show you any WIPs of this drawing, but I'm done for the day and got bored immediately after having put down my drawing pencil, so I thought ... why not upload a WIP :D.

I set myself a high goal this time, namely to make this the most detailed drawing I've ever done, and so far I'm quite happy with it. Time spent drawing: 14 hours!!!!! Hahah, and I seriously thought I'd finish it before the beginning of August... :ohmygod:

Anyway, comments are welcome as always.

* * * Edit * * *
If any of you should have this twice in your inbox it's because I had to upload it again - it didn't show up in my gallery the first time. Sorry 'bout that :-).

Thank you :cuddle:. I don't know, I haven't worked on it for quite some time now. It's still so much work and I'm actually more invested in other projects at the moment. I hope that I will finish it one day ... but no promises.

can i ask the size of the paper?
Reply
:iconarthawk87:
arthawk87 Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2012   Traditional Artist
The paper is slightly smaller than DIN A4, and there's a border of about 1,2cm around that. I will write the exact measures in the artist's comment once it's finished and uploaded - can't find a long enough ruler at the moment ;-).

Thanks a lot :-)! Don't know when it will be finished, though. It's so time-consuming, plus I'm taking a break from it because I don't have a scanner where I currently live (which I need in order to make a tutorial of the drawing process), so ... But eventually it will DEFINITELY be finished, we all just gotta hang in there ;-).

:iconarthawk87:
arthawk87 Featured By Owner Aug 22, 2012   Traditional Artist
No, I'm still working on it... Almost 20 hours already and I've barely finished the face, so about a fifth of the whole drawing. Seeing that the progress is this slow, it will probably not be finished any time soon. BUT I try to work on it every day so that at least there is SOME progress :-).

Then I wish you best of luck and all the strength you will need to complete it! I'm terrible for starting big projects, realising how time-consuming it is and forgetting to complete it >n< I hope you have more will-power than I! XD

arthawk87 Featured By Owner Aug 27, 2012   Traditional Artist
Thanks :-)! My will-power is relatively good at the moment, but it's been lacking for a few weeks before ...
All the best of luck for your art, too, and I hope you find a way to motivate yourself (I find that music helps a lot).

Looks fabulous so far. His eyes are so lifelike, the eyeballs are so naturally wet... and the depth & smoothness of black areas, stunning! :clap:

Well, you BETTER recognize the reference picture :threaten:! Naaaa, jk =p. I hear Hiddles is taking over tumblr (or, as it is now known, tomblr :D) and the internet is FULL of pics of him as prince Hal. Meeee likeyyyy :D! Ahem, yes, back to the drawing :D.
Thank you, dear, happy to hear you like it so far :hug:! It's so much work, I wonder if I can finish it this year :faint:! Not looking forward to drawing the crown, but I'll worry about that when I get there (am STILL drawing the face, but will soon get to the neck and hand *yay*). I try to draw a little bit every day, but I've been so lazy the last few days that the progress is so slow it's almost backwards. But yeah, I WILL finish this one... eventually. I just keep have to tell myself that :lmao:. So, what are you currently working on, if I may ask? I see you've uploaded a japanese-looking drawing, gonna comment on that soon. Until then, take care, and enjoy your summer :cuddle:!

You're very welcome :iconlovelightpinkplz: I keep my fingers crossed for you, I'm waiting for the day you upload this wonderful drawing finished :) But I'm a bit worried, as you start a lot of artworks and never finish them, you multitasker :shakefist: So you'd better not forgot about this one! :D

As for now, I'm taking care of a commission [a pretty girl] and my huge project - 8 fav vocalists:)

Howdy stranger :D. Thank you, very happy to hear you like it. This is going to be a big one (time-wise, it's smaller than A4), I predict that it will take me at LEAST 60 hours... I seem to have some masochistic tendencies :-o.

So how's your project coming along?

this looks so neat. That scene with Tom was so amazing, you could really feel the pain in his eyes. You've captured that same presence in your drawing so far. Bravo!
