Potrait: Robert Downey Jr by TayleRX Potrait: Robert Downey Jr by TayleRX
Hi there. Here is an amazing actor who goes by the name of Robert Downey Jr. This time I decided to do a huge face closeup in order to get more detail going, but it was still hard to get all the little details on A4 format. However, I'm very pleased with the end result, and I'm thinking that this drawing could be one of the best I've done :D With all this space, I could really show off with the face shading which was mostly done with B pencils to achieve more depth. The scarf was really fun to draw here as well, it really reminded me of the time when I did Yui's hood which draws me to a conclusion that I'm starting to enjoy drawing fabrics, who knew :D So here it is, I hope you like it guys!

Time: 20 hours
4H, HB, 3B, 4B, 5B and 6B pencils
Charcoal Pencils
0.3 and 0.5 mechanical pencils
Paper stumps and tortillions
Tissues
Kneaded Eraser

Absolutely amazing. Though, to me, it seems the light around his eyes is just a bit too bright. But I still love this and your art.

I love Robert Downey Jr. more than anything! :D And this is an excellent drawing of him! :) I drew one as well, which is on my profile on here. and it's funny because I have been thinking about drawing this one as well, I just simply love the way he looks in this picture! :) Can't figure out how to draw hair though, but you have managed really well! :)

I always begin with mechanical pencils, then I move to ordinary pencils. The thing with ordinary pencils is that they tend to blur already existing mechanical pencils marks so towards the end I try to re-do the things I've done with mechanical pencils. I used mechanical pencils for eyes, eyebrows, lips, scarf, hair and his stubble. The ordinary pencils are usually used for shading only. Thanks for the comment :D

Thanks a bunch for the comment! When it comes to your question, I use A4 photo paper. However, instead of using the glossy side of it, I go for the other side which is thick and perfect for traditional drawing :D

after staring at this for a very long time i've decided to finally write something
i'll start off by saying how much i love this drawing; and yh he's definitely an amazing actor =D
the detail of the fabric really is extremely good, very realistic. same goes for his hair
the shading of his face is also pretty amazing, the use of the B pencils definitely gives a nice effect
and lastly, as with most of your drawings, the eyes are pretty mesmerizing...
really awesome job, well done! =D

For each time you submit a drawing I'm like "there's no way that anyone can beat this drawing" and after each time you actually beat it by submitting more astonishing work... so, I guess (no I'm SURE) there's no limits for your creativity & will never be as I'm hopping ... omidetou ^_^ ^_^
