Graphite Portrait | The Witcher (Henry Cavill)

First of all, Happy Holidays Steemians!! I hope you're having a great time this time of year, I'm enjoying my Christmas vacation and I took the opportunity to draw a little. I've been a bit stuck with digital art because things don't go as well as I want, so I went back to traditional art and it seems that I haven't lost my touch yet.

Recently the long-awaited series "The Witcher" was released on Netflix, I devoured it immediately, in less than two days I had already finished it and to fill the void it left in me, I decided to portray Geralt of Rivia the protagonist of this story, played by Henry Cavill.

Materials:

  • Opaline Cardboard (A4)
  • Graphite Pencils 2H, HB. 3B and 6B
  • Eraser and blur
  • Reference picture

-Step 1:

Initially, draw a cross in the middle of the sheet, in order to have a reference point and locate the character correctly. Then, with the HB pencil in a tilted position, start sketching the character. Why with the pencil tilted? Because the handling of the pencil and the strokes are more fluid, also, it avoids making strong strokes that later are almostse.

-Step 2:

Drawing Henry's face was quite easy actually, since his face is quite square, it's almost like drawing the Superman of comics (there's a reason he was chosen for that role too). For the shading, I tilted the pencil again, using 2H for the light areas, HB for the intermediate ones and 3B for the strongest shadows. As for the hair, apply the same technique that I used in Daenerys, trace the important locks but without detailing them too much, the intention is to draw the shadow of them, leaving white spand out.

-Step 3:

It's time to make use of the dark pencils, giving a first layer with 3B, again laying it down a little (in short, I laid the pencil down in almost all the drawing), then with 6B detailing the folds of the clothes, bringing out shine with the eraser and finishing the texture with the HB. I was about to make the portrait only of the bust, so you can see a line in the middle of the shirt, but I left aside the laziness and completed it sheet.

<.

-Step 4:

Here I just went through the motions, correcting some small details and making the face a little darker, as the shirt overshadowed it with its intensity. Also, I finished the hair, which I had decided to complete when I finished everything else, since I had to look for a small eraser that I cut in pieces some time ago. I use it to remove shine and it is the right one for this hair, since each piece contains sharp edges that allow me to make "white lines", or rather, draw with the eraser and areas.

I'll leave you a little gif with the whole process in it, so you can better appreciate the step by step.

Thank you very much, mine is self-taught, since I was a child I liked to draw and I have been quite good at it, but in these last months I am trying to take it to a higher level

It is impressive the portrait you made, you managed to capture the essence of this actor, along with the small details that made it possible to come alive, since the characteristics are well defined, good shading and good delineation. In conclusion, I liked the technique you used and the step-by-step explanation. Congratulations on your post and vote curie. My greetings
