sketchbook Pacino

A new sketchbook drawing. Another Al Pacino, It is a lot more detailed then an earlier version that you can see here. I came across Sebastian Kruger's brilliant work on his blog and was blown away by this beautiful drawing. He does a fantastic job of creating interesting line work, for example notice the interest added by the line width changes on his arm. He is also great at creating form and shading.

I stumbled over your blog by accident some time ago and have been a regular visiter since. I love the work! I do have a gripe tho...I followed your links to the Avalanche artists and was up into the wee hours of the night going through all of them!!! What a great job you guys have. Now, through bleary eyes due to lack of sleep, I must do my own painting all day. Thanks alot! :)
Keep up the good work.

Thanks all.
It was drawn from reference, that would be great if I could keep an image in my head like that I probably would have done better in school.
