Robert Pattinson - Twilight by Doctor-Pencil Robert Pattinson - Twilight by Doctor-Pencil
FIRST: Listen for my son's song (@AndrewBelle) "The Ladder" on TV show "Vampire Diaries" this Thursday (9/16) 7pm Central time on the CW station!!

To view the Reference photo and the STEP SCANS go here: [link]
I also made numerous comments and explainations there too :D:D

I purposely did NOT make the background PITCH black, b/c I wanted his black coat to show a little? So I used an HB and rubbed hard, sideways, then went over it with a blending stump, then a cotton round (used for make-up, etc)

Donít forget to see my ever growing DRAWING TIP GUIDE [link]

See a CLOSE UP HERE: [link]

I swore I would never draw this guy! (HA)
1) Mainly because I have always viewed him as a teenage girlís idol?
2) He is also WAY over-drawn by people?!?

But, after all, it's the PHOTO that always inspires me to draw, NOT the person. When you find both, it's heaven! The reference photo has a great range of contrast, and fantastic tonal values! It was also high res, so I can see all the details. For me, I canít draw details I canít see.

The DRAWING is only 5 x 7 INCHES, so the face is even smaller. I enlarged the scans so you can see the details. One of the main reasons I draw so small, is because it saves time! How do you think I draw so many portraits?!?

I love your work but when I saw this I felt like something didnt look quite right to me. So after I stared for a little while I realized that it was the facial hair that was bugging me. Now maybe its because you drew this in such a small scale, and in order to really capture the light reflecting off those tiny hairs you would need a magnifier and super sharp eraser.
Aside from my criticism, I really think you captured his expression wonderfully, and I dont even like the guy lol

I noticed that you suggested we add this portrait to our favorites/featured collection at #CelebrityPortraits.
I'm afraid we don't allow members to suggest one of their own deviations as a favorite,
but feel free to submit it into our gallery by following the steps in our Info & Rules journal, It would be a
wonderful addition
