Matt Who? - WIP1 by Cataclysm-X Matt Who? - WIP1 by Cataclysm-X

A very, VERY early work in progress to show you the different stages of a drawing and how it's coming together :)

This portrait of Matt Smith (a.k.a. the Eleventh Doctor) on A3 size is commissioned by ~trinityknot :heart: who also requested to post WIP scans of the drawing on deviantART.


I am not done with shading his face yet, but will continue after I finished drawing the hair. That way I can judge how much more (or less) contrast and shading his facial features need.

More updates coming soon!

How long do you work on it each day? I'm not trying to be nosy, I'm just really curious about how long things take people, as I have no frame of reference.

That's ok! :)

It's hard to give an answer though. Sometimes I don't draw for days. And other times I draw 8 hours on a day, several days long!
It really depends on when inspiration strikes me (:

Matt SMITH! :'D Every time I see him he makes me weep with joy :heart: I seriously like David Tennant but Matt Smith is just too cute and random not to like (: Your work is seriously stunning as per usual... I used to compare myself to you, but I realized that we're all just good at different things; and this is something you're amazing at! Keep it up, your work is a great source of inspiration for me.

How long did it take you to get confident in your lines? Amazing work.

P.S. I have that same silver pencil. I like it.

Personally I am never confident with what I draw. It's the response that I get from people that makes me realize I do (or don't do) good :)
