:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:~~~~~:



Oh my Asgardian Gods :faint:

Can't believe it took me so long to finish, but I'm glad it is done.

My first completed drawing of 2013, and also my first completed realism piece since October 2011 (which was the Matt Bellamy portrait).


Tom Hiddleston as Loki Laufeyson. To be really honest I like Loki because of Tom Hiddleston, not the other way around. He added so much depth and life into the character that, instead of hating him, you can actually feel the character's pain and anger and understand why he is the way he is.


Work in Progress:



When I draw a portrait, I first add a basic skintones which you can see in the Work in Progress shots. Once I added contrast to the hair, it is easier to judge how much more contrast the skin needs. Therefore :) the skin looks much more darker in the finished drawing.

Anyway, I hope you like it. This became one of my most precious personal drawings :flirty:


Stuff used:
- 0.3mm (2H, H, HB, B, 2B) mechanical pencils
- 0.5mm (4H, 2H, H, F, HB, B, 2B, 3B) mechanical pencils
- blending done with: tissue, tortillion and 2 Q-tips.
- 1 references used (screenshot from Thor)
- Polychromos coloured pencils
- drawn on 10x20cm plain white sheet


20 hours of work

Simply and completely amazing! Great work, looks so freaking real!
and I feel the same way you do about Loki, Tom does such an amazing job portraying the pain, struggles, anger, jealousy of the character. I feel so bad for Loki every time I watch one of the movies he is in.

Thanks for the tip on doing the hair first then the skin. I totally agree with you on your opinion on liking Loki. I think Tom did an awesome job acting him. Especially in Thor 2 when he's on the floor of the dungeon... bleeding.....*shivers* Beautiful job on drawing him. Clap Heart Heart Heart
Definitely fave! +fav

I have just recently discovered your gallery, but I must say that I am truly amazed. I know how hard it is to make a portrait with a pencil and it's truly amazing how you handle the details. You can see every wrinkle, every pore.. Amazing! :-)

Loki!! Tom Hiddleston!!! I love Loki and Tom, but for different reasons, the only similarities being their appearance/voice :heart:

This is just painfully beautiful. The PORES. The pores are what is really killing me. That, and the lower lip.

One day I'll summon enough courage to try something similar. Also, I still have to finish my "digital-pencil-sketch" I started, like, eight months ago. Yup yup yup.
