Stargazer by Cataclysm-X Stargazer by Cataclysm-X
Find more of my pencil work on:
FACEBOOK :bulletblue: TWITTER

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



On a cold and dusty afternoon, I found a historic letter from my great-great-great grandmother. To my surprise I discovered that, on the back of the envelope, she had sketched a modern day looking figure whom she described as a 'time traveller' she had met...


(not really)


In other words:

Figure practice with David Tennant a.k.a. the Doctor as my model :thumbsup:

:dummy:

He's a fun guy to draw, but SO DIFFICULT.

To make it even more difficult I tried to draw a mini galaxy in the reflection on his sunglasses. (Approx 5mm + 7mm / 0.2" + 03" wide). lol. This drawing drove me nutty, so the more pleased I am with the result.


Apart from the face, this sketch was drawn with diagonal pencil strokes only.
Used mechanical pencils on A5 size Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchbook paper. Approx 4 hours.


Quite similar to my Dean sketch that I made about a year ago.



And even more similar to:




Used this stock image by ~frameofthoughts for the vintage background.


PS: You remember this one, *SheldonSands? :eyes:
