Denzel Washington - Malcolm X by Rick-Kills-Pencils Denzel Washington - Malcolm X by Rick-Kills-Pencils
I had this one about 80% complete when I put it aside to draw Jack Nicholson.

SIZE: 6 x 7 INCHES
TIME: about 8 hours
PAPER: Strathmore Bristol Smooth 300 series
PENCILS: Staedtler Mars Lumograph H, HB, F, B, 2B, 3B

To view the step scans I took, see this Google Doc:

PS - the UN-ENLARGED VIEW is the EXACT SIZE of the Actual Drawing
:D:D

I know that the space between his finger and his face is pitch black, yet on the other side of that finger is all white. But believe me, that's how the reference photo was. After I cropped it and converted it to B&W that is ;)
