Danny DaVito by Rick-Kills-Pencils Danny DaVito by Rick-Kills-Pencils
(displayed LARGER than actual drawing)
Danny DaVito - best known for his roll in the 70's sitcom "TAXI" but has made many movies of course :D

The challenge for me here was trying to create a "soft focus" feel on the outer edges, like the ref pic. I don't have a lot of experience with that effect, but I've known for a long time that out of focus backgrounds, when done correctly, can have the BIGGEST effect on "fooling the brain" into thinking it sees reality. Now, perfecting that technique will take a while.

SIZE: 5.27 x 5.77 inches
TIME: 10+ hours
MEDIUM: Bristol Smooth 300 series by Strathmore
PENCILS: 2B, B, H

Amazing realism!  The eyes are full of life and emotion.  The texture in the skin, the shadows....very masterful work!  I'm just in complete awe!
