Matthew Gray Gubler - Dr Reid by Doctor-Pencil Matthew Gray Gubler - Dr Reid by Doctor-Pencil
Matthew Gray Gubler (aka Dr. Spencer Reid) on Criminal Minds, which is my newly discovered favorite show! I love all the characters, but my fav right now is Matthew!

Reid Quote: "I don't believe that intelligence can be accurately quantified, but I do have an IQ of 187, an eidetic memory, and I can read 20,000 words per minute."

Wikipedia Entry [link]

I didn't know this until after I drew this, but apparently, his is also a sketch artist. I'm going to find a way to get this to him, via his agent or something?

Of course I used my needle trick to scratch out the hairs against the black background BEFORE applying graphite.
See HOW in my TIP GUIDE here: [link]

View the Step Scans, Ref Photo, and a photo of my hand next to the drawing for a scale reference HERE [link]

I wanted to do a small drawing, that I could finish in 1 evening...

SIZE: 4x6 Inches
TIME: 4-1/2 hours
PAPER: Strathmore Bristol Smooth 300 series
PENCILS: Staedtler Mars Lumograph H, HB, B, 2B, 3B

The UN-ENLARGED view is an inch taller than the drawing
:D:D

One more Quote from Criminal Minds (LOL)

Special Agent Derek Morgan: So tell me, what does keep young Dr. Reid awake at night? Wait, let me guess. Memorizing some obscure textbook? No, no, no. Working on cold fusion? No, I got it, I got it, I got it. Watching Star Trek and laughing at all the physics mistakes?

Dr. Spencer Reid: Actually, there aren't that many scientific errors in Star Trek, especially considering how long ago it was made. There are certain improbabilities, but not that many outright errors.

Special Agent Derek Morgan: Right.

Hotch: "I'm Agent Hotchner. This is Special Agent Dr. Reid."
David Woodland: "You look too young to have gone to medical school."
Spence: "They're Ph.D.s. -three of them."
David Woodland: "Are you a genius or something?"
Spence: "I don't believe intelligence can be accurately quantified-but I do have an IQ of 187 and an eidetic memory and can read 20,000 words per minute."
*silence*
Spence: "Yes, I'm a genius."
I sooo loved that part XD

Some celebs respond on twitter, some don't. He didn't so I moved on. I did just send my Giancarlo Esposito (Gus on Breaking Bad) to his manager, and have exchanged several tweets with the actor. Pretty cool!! :D:D

This is awesome! The eye is perfect and I love the way you did his hair. I love Criminal Minds too, and he's my favorite. The actor is really cool and likes to draw too, so I bet he'd like it if you sent it to him. :)

It's a healthy obsession I'm sure ha! I'm doing another Reid soon. Not totally happy with his mouth and chin. It was also just a half face. I follow him on twitter, and the team. They tweet some funny stuff and pics. I think they are all friends outside the show? :D:D
