FULL VIEW PLEASE


:damphyr: Captain Jack Sparrow, Savvy?

Hurray, my hand is dead :la:!


'Wherever we want to go, we'll go, that's what a ship is, you know. It's not just a keel and a hull and a deck and sails, that's what a ship needs... but what a ship is, what the Black Pearl really is...is freedom.'


This deviation is entirely done with pencils!
I can't believe it... I finally finished this portrait too, one of my all time fav character: Capt Jack Sparrow.
I just love the emotion in his eyes. That's one of the reasons why I drew this picture.
I worked really hard on this drawing the past few days. It killed my hand.

I think that this is my best portrait I ever.. EVER drew. I never put so many hours in shading a face. I never put so many details in the skin.

I started this drawing in March 2008 and finished it in August 2009.
hmmm well.... not as long as the two years of the Gandalf portrait lol :meow:!

Jack: But still long ... :iconpoliticsplz:

... whatever :noes:


:damphyr: Tools:
Used: 4H, 2H, H, HB, B, 8B, 9B pencils, Tortillion for blending, kneaded eraser
Time: Around the 30 hours
Size: A4
Paper: 200 g/m2 paper


:damphyr: Dedications:
I dedicate this drawing to 3 of my best friends. :glomp:
~M-i-n-c-a
~L-a-u-r-a
~Wenn--8 < my schoolbuddy :lol:

I would really like to try my hand at this photo, but I can't find the original. Which movie is this capture from or do you have the photo still? I admire your work here, it is unbelievably detailed.
