How to draw Johnny Depp as Captain Jack SparrowBy
Adding a little more to the depths of his cheekbones, I used a ebony woodless charcoal. I cleaned up the length of his nose as stated in the previous post, I did not like how narrow it originally looked. Try using a lighter stroke, it is easier to clean up your lines. I have noticed when you are using pine, as you get unfinished from Hobby Lobby and other craft stores, you are more apt to run into troubles going back and erasing any thing that you do not care for.
Woodless charcoal does smudge easy when you use a tortillion – I love those things. It also can blend into smaller area’s. If you are not able to get them, you can also go with a Q-tip, remove alot of the cotton, or all of it for that matter, and you get a nice little blending tool You can also make your own tortillion. I added a bit of color to his lips. as well as the auburn woodless graphite pencil to add color to snap his do-rag into place. Again, I do not recommend blending solely with your finger on this type of unfinished wood product.
I was not happy with the lightness of his eyes that I originally put in place, so I enhanced it with a darker brown woodless charcoal.
The work continues..blessings to all.. and stay tuned as we soon will be able to serve up some shots of rum on the serving tray in progress.
