Walter White by FallingDark Walter White by FallingDark
I realized that I hadn't drawn anyone from my other favorite series on TV, and that's a problem. So here it is--Walter White/Heisenberg.
As of writing this I am near Abiquiu, New Mexico--about 2 hours away from Albuquerque, where Breaking Bad is filmed! Unfortunately I won't be able to tour the film sites--I'll have to find a T-shirt or something at the airport. :D

Well, I was right about my time prediction--this one took 32ish hours! As usual, I used a .7 and a 1mm mechanical HB pencil, with tortillions and kneaded rubber erasers as well. I'm really happy how it turned out.

really well done! how did you get your blacks so black?
Reply
:iconfallingdark:
FallingDark Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Well, I use a 1mm HB pencil and do a lot of layers. I might ask you how you make your skin look so realistic--I saw you drawing 'Michael'! :D

:iconbanethedog:
banethedog Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
thank you! like you said, it's really just many layers to achieve that texture. i also sometime use a paper, or board with a heavy tooth, it adds to the texture. i find it difficult to achieve rich, deep blacks unless i use charcoal, but that doesn't work well on smooth surfaces.

FallingDark Featured By Owner Jan 15, 2013  Professional Traditional Artist
Yeah, the paper I use has some decent texture to it. In the future I might get some B and above pencils to make things easier.

Yo, Mister White!
Those are quite some textures. I really like the fact that skin really looks like skin and hair like hair. The contrast is perfect and makes the whole picture quite impressive. Great work over here!!

Thank you very much! All of the things you mentioned were actually the reason I chose this reference photo over several others--sometimes you see a photo so good that you can't resist drawing it. :D
