Brad Pitt by ChrisWoottonArt Brad Pitt by ChrisWoottonArt
I drew this following a request. It took about 10-12 hours as i was trying to get the background right Arhhh!!!! Tried solid graphite stick as an experiment for the first time, what a mess!!

It's on A3, 200gm white cartridge, using graphite pencils H6 - B9, solid Graphite sticks (Soft, Medium & Hard). kneadable rubber, lots of tissues and a fantastic reference photo.

All credit for this one off reference must go to Chris Weeks, an amazing photojournalist. if you get a chance, go to his deviantart site cweeks.

Looks good! I think his face is just a little too wide, though.... His jaw sticks out so much it would look like his cheeks were full if your shading didn't make obvious that that's his jawbone.

What is your shading method :?

:iconchriswoottonart:
ChrisWoottonArt Featured By Owner Jul 31, 2012  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Hi, it's based on layer upon layer of softening pencil. i usually start with B2 and can go upto 6 layers to B9, each layer is then smoothed and blended out with tissue paper or smudge sticks. :happybounce:
