Anthony Hopkins by gabbyd70 Anthony Hopkins by gabbyd70
This drawing is dedicated to =JuliettJadeK :star::iconjuliettjadek::star: for winning in my contest with her awesome mermaid entry. :aww: :D

She suggested I draw Anthony Hopkins and I've wanted to draw this for years, so finally I got the chance to. :) I love drawing details..that was my favorite part of drawing this. It's too bad my neck always hurts from doing mechanical pencil drawings though...I love the effect and the details you can get with those pencils :/

Anyway, this was made with:
~mechanical pencils- 0.3 0.5 and 0.7-- 3H, B and 4B lead
~vellum paper
~q-tips and tissues
~photo ref

:D :D

Did you go to school to do these? Or are you self-taught, or both?

at this point in my art, self taught. I learned through constant practice on my own. 
In the past few yrs tho I have taken classes to grow in my skill :)

Right! You're a natural! Constant practice. That's what I gotta do. I started when I was three but I haven't practiced consistently or constantly. Hm, that would be fun. I think I still have stuff from when I was 3,6 and 7 years old. I should put that in my gallery. Then I can look like a chump ahaha.

Do you have drawings from when you were that age? I'd like to see them to see your development.

But it's not a necessity. Is that profile picture you or someone else btw?

I had to look thru my comments to find this one again. I was so excited I finally got a picture from when I was nine years old (and got the scanner to work). Or I was eight. Maybe even younger. Anyway, here's the link:

Hope you like it! =D And hope you're doing well.

I found a marker drawing of a whale I did when I was 7. I tried scanning it but the dumb scanner was not listening to my commands. Hot n cold. Hot n cold. Only cold last night. Ergh. It has on and off days.

And then I found another one of a dinosaur when I was 9. I was so into Jurassic Park at that time.

And I know I have faces drawn from age 7 or so, just gotta find them. There are so many boxes here. If I find those and if my scanner decides to work, I'll show you! =D

But thanks again for showing me yours! Have a good day!

Oooooo! I love that! Whom did you draw on the left? And on the right, Is that the same one just drawn at a different age?

That's so cute! I have to look for mine. They're around here somewhere. I have moved so many times in the last couple of months, it's ridiculous.

The left was made up from my head I think and the right is Hayley Williams.
It's fun to look at old drawings compared to new ones :) I might make something else like this.

Wow, you even made stuff from your head at age nine? I hated doing that. I mean, I like doing that now, but for some reason I hated doing it then.

Yeah, it is interesting to see the same [hopefully] majorly improved characteristics of your former self. It's like looking at a time log or a growth chart that all fits neatly (and sometimes messily) on one page. =)

You might do something else like this? What's that mean? (What next to I have to look forward to from you? =P) You mean another comparison of old vs new? ("Vs" would be the wrong term.)
