Stevie Wonder - I Just Called To Say I Love You by Doctor-Pencil Stevie Wonder - I Just Called To Say I Love You by Doctor-Pencil
NOTE: The UN-enlarged view is the exact size of the drawing

SIZE: 6 x 8 inches

PAPER: Strathmore Bristol Smooth 300 series

PENCILS: Staedtler Mars Lumograph H, HB, B, 2B

TOOLS: Blending stumps, Kneaded eraser, TUFF-STUFF stick eraser, Chisel edged color shaper, Magnifying glass, Makeup brush, Mechanical Pencil .05mm 2B, Staedtler "clutch pencils", Swing-Arm lamp for Direct and Indirect drawing light.

TIME: about 12 hours

REFERENCE PHOTO: [link]

FAV song by Stevie: "I Just Called To Say I Love You" [link]

NOTE ABOUT THE DRAWING: As much as I enjoyed drawing all the details in his glasses, I hated drawing his hand. I HATE drawing hands! Also the ref photo was not high resolution (see link) and while I know teeth are NOT suppose to be pure white, the photo made them appear that way. Anyway, I have an 8 out of 10 on the satisfaction scale with this one. CLICK DOWNLOAD for a SUPER CLOSE UP VIEW? :D:D

I saw your portrait of Paul Giamatti (my fave Actor too - Sideways and Duet) on Google images. Inspired me to join this crazy mish mashed  place that is Deviantart. Keep up the awesome work. :) I hope I used the right smiley.

Thanks! Sounds metric? If you mean SIZE, I NEVER draw to "fill the page" size. I crop the photo, print it to drawing size, then create a boarder within the piece of paper. Check out my tip blog link - below?
