Tobey Maguire by Doctor-Pencil Tobey Maguire by Doctor-Pencil
This was one of those "center focused" photos. There were not a lot of good photos of Tobey, so I chose this close up, because it was high-res.

Size: approx 14x17 cm (5-1/2 x 6-1/2 inches)
Time: about 6 hours
Strathmore Bristol smooth 300 series paper
Staedtler Pencils H,F,HB,B,2B,4B

Thank you so much! I spend the most time on eyes, which sometimes shows in the other parts of the face, ha! I'm earning more patience though :D:D:D

Patience is still a big thing with me.....I want to finish a piece so badly that I rush the end of it...and could then kick myself!! LOL

HA! I'm doing that RIGHT NOW with a drawing. It's "looked" finished for 2 hours. But, it's the little stuff you could keep going on? Since it's too dark to photograph it today, I will just tweak it tonight, and see if it make a diff? It's a close up of Leonardo DiCaprio and the photo has a TON of details and about 50 shades of tone :D:D

...aaahhh..that's the thing with close ups!! TONS of detail! LOL...my failing is rushing the hair or the background...thinking, it's just not important...but it is...and it shows...lol...I must learn more patience!! :D

at some point at the end of a drawing, my brain either says, "it's finished" OR "this is good enough"? I strive for just knowing I did my best? Does that mean I can do better with more time? Who knows? :D:D:D

....sometimes...you just know it's finished even though you may have left areas blank...but you can work something too much....I go with my instinct...and stop when I think it's finished (as long as I haven't rushed it!! LOL)

I LOVE it, brilliant!! Just wondering do you blend the skin or just shade it right on??

:icondoctor-pencil:
Doctor-Pencil Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
I do both, depending? I usually start with a lighter pencil (H,F?) and hold it sideways and lightly apply in the direction of the shape in that part of the face. Then I blend it with a Cotton Blending stump (the solid kind) If it's a darker area, I repeat the above steps with darker pencils, so it's in layers (HB, B, 2B) and blend. Did you see my TIPS GUIDE in my gallery? Lots of details :D:D:D

Tobey looks great here. How many drawings like this do you finish a week, Rick? Do you sell them at fairs or online?

Doctor-Pencil Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Thanks a lot! I used to do 1 every other day. Now, I do about 2 per week. Each takes me about 6 hours? I've been hired for commission work, but never sold any celebs I drew for myself :D

You ever take the pictured that you reference yourself? Or do you rely on your client to provide you with a selection? I was thinking of doing some portraits for friends and family this holiday season and wondered how you operated.

ha, well it depends on the job, who it is, and how much they pay me? I have had my daughter take the pics once (she is in photography school now) cuz it was a friend who paid me $500 to draw each of his 2 kids. But other than that, they send photos they want me to draw, and I determine IF I can do a good job with it? If it's too grainy or blurry, and I can't see details, I don't do it. Good drawings come from good photos. I prefer, and am inspired, by photos, NOT the subject. So for me, natural light works best and provides HIGH contrast. When I find a GREAT photo and it's ALSO someone I want to draw, I get butterflies in my stomach lol

Okay. It makes sense. I'd much rather use my own photos just because most people don't know how to take a decent shot, lol.
