I was asked again by Rosebud Magazine in California to draw Jack Nicholson, because they are doing an interview with him, and he's on the cover. They said he will most likely view my art work!!

I've created a Google Doc with all the scans of the steps I took, so I don't have to SPAM everyone with all the WIP updates. The only problem is, you can't see the fine details very well, because they are pasted images, not attachments.

SIZE: 7 x 8 INCHES
TIME: about 10-12 hours?
PAPER: Strathmore Bristol Smooth 300 series
PENCILS: Staedtler Mars Lumograph H, HB, F, B, 2B, 3B
PLEASE NOTE: The ENLARGED view is slightly larger than the actual drawing. See the high res scan link above for CLOSE UP details
Speaking of which...the details in his eyes drove me nuts! I prolly spent over 4 hours total on the eyes!
PS - note I drew the entire head? I ALWAYS crop the scalp at least a little. It is so you get the most face in the space allowed. However, Rosebud Mag insisted that I drew the whole thing, and that they are also going to do some type of "watercolor effect" to the drawing? I will post that when I see it.
