This is Russell Crowe as the role of Ben Wade from "3:10 to Yuma".
Nothing much to say about this except that I still hate drawing hair.
Hope you like it.

4200 pixels x 3300 pixels ; 14" x 11"
300 ppi ; 39.7 MB ; 10 layers including signatures
+- 10 hours

CROWE as Ben Wade

I made another version by adding special effect filters to the drawing.

Looks great Rob. I think I would blur the edge of the brim of the hat a little.
So where are the pastels?

Another nice one .. matanda !

The second "effect" drawing might work better if the image was faded or desaturated a little bit .. or even done in brown and white, like and old "Wanted Dead or Alive" poster. Just an idea. :?

Have you seen the movie ? .. He's a pencil artist on the side !!

Thanks Tom...
I retouched the part right away after reading your comment.
I appreciate comments like that. ;)

As for the pastel...I dunno..am still waiting for the right moment. :oops:

Thanks Bud...I may be matanda...but I'm just a few years older! :twisted:
I know what you mean about the effect...
I've thought of that...but it would take away the drawing and some people may think it's just a photo-manipulation.
Besides, I wanted to put the word "wanted" but can't find the right font.
I'll play with it some other time.
And yeah...I've seen the movie. My reference for this was captured from the PC...same with the Bruce Willis piece.
I'm open to criticisms...keep them coming.

One suggestion I have on the "wanted
poster" version, is that the holes kind of look like paper hole punched rather than that made by a bullet. Bullets usually rip the paper a little, and may not be perfectly round.

Here's a example.

Here's another.

He's one tough looking dude, and you've really captured that. Great detail on the scar under his right eye! Must've been kinda gross getting realism on something like that! One thing I noticed was that perhaps the line along the right side (for us, his left) of his nose is a little too well defined? I dunno, just looking for something to criticize since you like criticism.
Just your typical waffle-loving Canadian.

Did you change your mind about softening the edge of the brim?

u have such an amazing way of gettin a good ref and turing it into a work of art :shock: ... im a fan of westerns, i saw this one in the theaters, awesome character, and like brendan said he draws on the side, i guess a way of leaving his mark, since he leaves them where his subject was... love the movie and this drawing, good job.

Thanks for the stock photos, Tom...
Yeah, it was meant to be a bullet hole..
but i was kinda lazy to look for references and too eager to post it up...
I don't like continuing on a drawing after the weekend. :lol:

Thanks Graham.
I don't know about your suggestion.
When i try to blur something...people would say it's kinda blurry...
now that I sharpen some edges, it's too well-defined.
which should I follow? :roll:
But i appreciate the criticism. :lol:
