I haven't had this much time for drawing in years, maybe since college when I had to complete many assignments the night before they were due.
This one came from an article about Stephen Hawking's new book on the Time.com web site. I liked the lighting and the features of him for some reason and I grabbed the photo and said that it would be a drawing project some time. That time came and I finished it tonight. Not too bad, and this one went marginally darker with a 4B pencil instead of a silly H lead. Even still, it could have gone darker. Maybe I have a fear of pencil smudge in the sketchpad if I go too dark. Thanks for looking in on my time-passing techniques.
