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
