Gibson and Glover by Rick-Kills-Pencils Gibson and Glover by Rick-Kills-Pencils
I was first attracted to drawing this because of it's intense light sources, as well as being an exercise in patience for drawing all the highlighted hair :D

Mel Gibson and Danny Glover made a great pair, and were of course was very popular in their Lethal Weapon movie and it's sequels.

I used Bristol VELLUM this time, because I find that Vellum responds very well to scratching. I took a nail and a needle, and FIRST scratched out the highlights in the hair area, then drew around them. It was a lot of "negative space" drawing, which I never seem to have the patience for doing?

Paper: Bristol Vellum
Pencils: Staedtler B, 2B, 3B
Size: 6-1/2 inches tall (16cm) x 8-3/4 inches (22cm) wide
Time: Approximately 7 hours

It did not require much blending at all. The zoom view is actually larger than the drawing, but 600 pixels is too small. I wonder why they don't give us an option at 700 pixels wide???

Hope you like it?
:D:D:D
