I loved the darkness and contrast of this picture and thought it would be a real challenge, I was right, too right!

Love this guy, I grew up watching him as Angel and now I think he's great on Bones.

I'm really happy with how the paper version came out but the scan is a complete pain. I discovered a tutorial on scanning pencil work here: [link] which helped a lot but I don't have all the options shown in the tutorial so it's still not great, looks over exposed i think. But the first scan I did before discovering how to adjust setting was purely abysmal!

Any pointers any one wants to give me for scanning Graphite work would be greatly appreciated!

Time: approximately 11 hours. Plus 2 hours messing with dozens of scans!

Tools: 2H through 9B +blending tools putty eraser, pencil eraser and fixative

Thanks! I know he is difficult but I drew him quite a bit back when I was wee teen so I'd had some practice before I started! Your gallery looks great though and you've chosen some very cool characters/actors to draw! I very much approve of your subject choices! Hehe! ^^
