Robert Downey Jr. by CameronHarperArt Robert Downey Jr. by CameronHarperArt
Sorry I haven't uploaded anything recently, I've been preoccupied with University/College and only now have I been able to actually get something done!!

Done with B & 2B pencils on an A3 piece of cartridge paper, I would say this took a good 20 hours (at least).

I normally paint with acrylics so this is really my second pencil portrait I've done within the past few years, I drew BANE not too long ago - cameron1395.deviantart.com/art… - but personally I'm much more pleased with this one.

And I finally mastered tiny font...

You nail the details with contrast in your portraits. Excellent work.
May I ask what the usual dimensions of your drawings are?

Thanks very much! So far for all of the pencil portraits I've used A3 cartridge paper. I may go bigger though, who knows...

Wow! Your work is incredible! How did you do the smoke? With a rubber?

Thanks! It was a while ago but I can't remember using a rubber that much at all really, maybe for the odd highlight, but the smoke was done with just a pencil :)

This is really quite incredible. I'm a big fan of Robert Downey Jr., which is what caught my eye with this piece to begin with, but the fact that it's actually traditional media and not a photo as I would have guessed is really remarkable! I think what I'm most impressed with is the fact that you even managed to render the pores and texture of his skin, and on his forehead and eyelids in particular... just lovely.
