Another Glance by Norloth Another Glance by Norloth
This is for the "Hello China" he said to the Chinese journalist on the red carpet of Oscar.:XD:

Honestly, I'm not quite satisfied with this drawing...The background was trying to kill me, and also was his shirt! But I really like the reference, and the whole series, the photographer captured the real Viggo and that is what I wanted to represent too!:)

4B pencil, white pencil, white ink on gray paper

HA!! YOU don't need ANYONE'S help with backgrounds! :p ;) This looks wonderful--lovely depth and texturing (especially in his hair and shirt), and the "softness" of the b/g really brings the subject forward! You really have a gift for handling light, you know? It's really wonderful! :clap:

It's not hard to draw the BGs according to a ref, but really hard to create them by oneself I believe...That is what I must work on hard to improve. ;)
Thank you very much for the compliment! :blushes:

I love the effect the grey paper gives, the look is so much softer than anyone could get with white paper. I think you did really well with this and the shirt as well as the background are awesome -- I love the blurred effect on the background and the texture of the shirt. He's also definitely Viggo. :D :clap:

I see what you mean. But you did it great. After the last pic, with only his head, I was looking forward to see the complete pic. And I understand that shirt...:XD:
How long have you been working on this?
I just got to fav this one as well. =D

The ref photo is not very strong of contrast, so it became a little harder to render I think.:)
After last time, I continued it this afternoon, so maybe around 6 hours, I'm not sure.
Thank you very much, and for the fav as well! :hug:

He looks very tired and old. Good shading though and really good work on the shirt. He also seems too skinny.
