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! :)

Excellent job of capturing his expression in both his eyes and his forehead.

Texture on the scarf is awesome, and the eyes are /amazing/. Really, really well done.
