James McAvoy by lemondrop12595 James McAvoy by lemondrop12595
So I've decided not title this deviation just yet to see if anyone could guess who it was, if no one figures it out then I guess I haven't done a very good job at capturing his likeness.

Clues: He's an actor ^.^

- Charcoals on vellum (9x12 in.), a bunch of smudging sticks, and a kneaded eraser
- Took about 6-7 hours

Happy Guessing!

Edit: Yes ladies and gents it is James McAvoy, indeed. For some reason I thought it'd be more difficult to guess.

Here's the reference pic [link]

from Atonement :
Robbie Turner: [about the letter he sent her] It was a mistake.
Cecilia Tallis: Briony read it.
Robbie Turner: I'm so sorry, it was the wrong version.
Cecilia Tallis: Yes.
Robbie Turner: It was never meant to be read.
Cecilia Tallis: No.
[walks away, Robbie follows her]
Cecilia Tallis: What was in the version I was meant to read?
Robbie Turner: Don't know... it was more formal, and less...
Cecilia Tallis: Anatomical?
Robbie Turner: Yes.

I absolutely love this movie, it has replaced Titanic on my list of great dramas.

I assure you I didn't, I don't even have photoshop :/. It was about 6 hours of working with charcoal pencils, tortillons, kneaded erasers, tissue, and fingertips on vellum. I don't know whether I should be offended that you would think I'd post an altered photograph and claim it as my own work or flattered that you would think it is a photograph; look closely though, my drawing is nowhere near perfect and I'm sure you can find imperfections.

I guess that's a good thing that it looks so real. Please take it as a compliment I meant no harm in saying so.

I've done very little drawing... but just tried my hand at sketching out James as Robbie from Atonement. I find hair incredibly difficult... and in my drawings it never looks real. You, however, have done an incredible job with the hair, and everything else. Well done. =)

I find hair to be very difficult as well, best advice is to take your time with it, I always tend to rush the hair and it ends up looking a little like straw but with this piece I just tried to take it one strand at a time. Thank you for your comment!

Indeed! He has a lovely face. I first discovered him through the Children of Dune mini-series, which he was very good in. Have you seen Becoming Jane? It's excellent.

I did see Becoming Jane, I liked it as well. His performance on King of Scotland is pretty amazing, too.
