Process of a Portrait: Superman (Henry Cavill) [Colored Pencil and Graphite]

Some people like to see drawings in progress and I have gotten in the habit of taking progress shots with my phone while working on it. It’s good to get another perspective on it, actually, to compare the drawing to the original source photo, and to also see how it evolves over the course of working on it.

After seeing the film “Man of Steel” at midnight on 6/14/13, I started work on this drawing later that morning. I finished it three days later (but “four” sessions: 6/14, 15, 16, 17) in the AM…

The drawing was done entirely freehand (like all of my drawings) without the aid of a grid or tracing or anything.
