Savvy? by i-want-the-red-one Savvy? by i-want-the-red-one
DAAAAAAAAMN!!!!!!! OVER 50 HOURS ON THIS SUCKER!!

Damn Bristol board is hard to get used to, but it's so gooooood!!! :P
I love how this came out I really do, I don't think I could have done it any justice had I done it on my other paper, so I'm glad I waited until I got some bristol so I could get all the details in this....SO COOL!
Not used to being able to blend and keep detail, it's good, but also terrifying lol :L
Also...I HATE DREADLOCKS!! so damn annoying...I think you can tell where I got lazy lol.
but thing with bristol board...the scanned image requires little or no editing, like this...I didnt change contrast or anything...just stitched the image together 'cause I have an A4 scanner and this is A3, and made it black and white 'cause it was slightly off grey 'cause of my scanner but oh well! :P

INFO
A3 Bristol Board
Mechanical pencil - HB(but it's very soft, so its about 8B :P) 6B, H
Kneaded eraser
block eraser
Pencil Eraser
Blending sticks
50+ hours - been working on it for about 2.5-3 months :P
And a dot of tipex in the eye :P

Enjoy the beautiful Jack Sparrow!!

50 hours well worth it. Holy shit. Was there no reflection on the R pupil? Just curious.

Thanks! Yeah there was, its only on the side of the eye though, it just touches the pupil, so it wasnt too obvious :P
