Dexter Morgan - Michael C Hall by Doctor-Pencil Dexter Morgan - Michael C Hall by Doctor-Pencil
* Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper
* Approx 8 hours
* Approx 5x6 inches (13x15cm)
* Staedtler Mars Lumograph Pencils (both Wood & Clutch)
H, F, HB, B, 2B, 3B
* Loew Cornell Blending Stumps
* Kneaded Rubber Eraser
* Magnifying Glass

NOTE: I also used a large sewing needle mounted in a Clutch lead holder to scratch out the lines in his hair and small whiskers. Then when you go over it with a pencil, the lines magically appears (warning: practice first before you ruin your drawing)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I watched the first half of Season 1 of Dexter about 3 years ago. I recently joined Netflix.com and started watching Season 2. In the past 10 days, I watched Seasons 2, 3 & 4!!! When I get into a show, I really get into it! This is the reason it's been 2 weeks since my last drawing, ha! I'm the same way with LOST, 24 and most recently Breaking Bad. (Yes, Bryan Cranson is probably my next drawing). Season 5 of Dexter starts this fall, so I will probably have to order the Showtime channel so I can watch it?

For those who don't know the show, he is a Forensics Detective for the Miami Metro Police by day, and a vigilante serial killer by night. However, he only kills murderers.

This photo is from the Season 4 DVD cover. He has his new son Harrison on his shoulders, who dripped what appears to be blood on his face, but it's really juice. I had a little trouble with his mouth, because it's unusual? The photo also has a LOT of different light effects which made for more trouble. I also kinda rushed his shirt at the end, which I normally do. I don't like drawing clothes, as I'm sure you noticed? ;)

I hope you Dexter fans like it?!? :D:D

I can make it pitch black just an with an F, HB, B or 2B. I never go softer than that. It's the PAPER AND Overhand grip method that is critical. See my TIP GUIDE link below :D:D

mmm cool.. your awesome man, can you tell me how do you get the proportions so right? i like drawing portraits too, if take a look at my chanel there is a couple, but i use a grid and thats how i get the proportions but you dont seem to do so.. whats your secret? o:

Doctor-Pencil Featured By Owner Jun 28, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Lots of ways to get proportions right. Measuring, grid paper, light boxes, reverse outlining with tracing paper on a window, etc x10, but all that will get you is an accurate LINE drawing (coloring book). THEN you must try to bring it to LIFE :D:D

I'm going to have to figure out a way to see Season 5, since we can't get Showtime here in Eastern Canada. I definitely won't be able to wait till it's on DVD - that'll be way too long! At one point one of our movie channels carried it, but I don't think they do anymore. Might have to look into satellite television. That's how much I love this program, I don't watch much television (don't find there's very much on TV worth watching), but I will do whatever I have to to get this program. :lol:

Thanks for the link :thanks: - I've bookmarked it for future reference. Wow, :wow: you watched them fast! We bought the first three seasons on DVD and my husband downloaded the fourth season from somewhere on the net, so we are eagerly awaiting the fifth season.

Nah, never heard of that one - I'll have to check it out. I watched a couple seasons of Lost before it got too weird for me. Kinda wish I had kept up with it now. Never watched 24, though. Don't generally watch much TV. We prefer going to the movie theatre.
