Hugh Laurie by Cataclysm-X Hugh Laurie by Cataclysm-X
I love Hugh Laurie. Yes I do. :heart: He's so incredibly talented. He can play music, write music, he's a very funny comedian and his role in House is awesome!


Anyway, it is finally done. I had a really hard time drawing this picture!! At some point I was drawing the hair, and it turned out like crap.
Then I did something I've never done before...:
I took some scissors. :paranoid: :excited:
Go me!


The funny thing is that I like this picture so much better this way. I think it has this extra feeling or something, more fun and playful than an usual headshot.

The reference picture was very light and not all that sharp, but remembered a lot of Hugh's features from watching all the episodes of House, so I drew them as good and precise as I could. :)
The shirt he was wearing was white-ish but it made the drawing look too pale, so I darkened it a lot!

And the hair... well, lets not talk about that :D


Stuff I used:
  • 2H, H, HB, B & 2B mechanical pencils

  • Tissue for blending

  • kneaded & regular eraser

  • reference picture

  • scissors xD

  • A4 sized sketchbook paper

  • Time spent: approx 8 hours...?


    Work in progress can be foind here!:
    WIP 1
    WIP 2


    Dedicated to another 2 of my fellow House-fans friends: *callsignKateJones and ~SheldonSands. You two kick some serious butt!! :heart:


    .............EDIT.............
    :star: Now available as print!!! :star:
