Kyle Robert Willis who's awesome self portrait is on his website! Man, a person can really tell how much older he is than the last time he drew himself! I drew my face. I let my beard draw itself. 2 Versions.
Quick Sketch #3: Jax Teller. (unfinished) If I got the likeness on this one the ladies are sure to swoon. Charlie Hunnam's character on Sons of Anarchy is a favorite among those of the fairer sex. And he's pretty bad ass too. Still need to draw his cut. Did what you see during lunch. Another 5x7. Enjoying these more spontaneous exercises.
Quick Sketch #5 - Probably my favorite so far! Walton Goggins has made Boyd Crowder (JUSTIFIED on FX) one of my favorite TV characters of all time, and he's a tie with the lead character for my favorite character on Justified. The thick Kentucky accent, the sinister, humorous, religious, criminal, and ultimately confusing path of this character - these are the things that give this show its charm. Hope you like this sketch as much as I do! Its definitely more gestural than most of my work, and I did it in a little under an hour. Lots of fun for a warm up.
Quick Sketch #2: Raylan Givens - I'll let my fellow JUSTIFIED fans decide if I got the likeness. Put the final touches on while listening to "Simple Man" by Charlie Daniels. Thought that was appropriate. Love this character brought to life by Timothy Olyphant and the writing of Elmore Leonard.
