Gerard Butler by AmBr0 Gerard Butler by AmBr0
After watching Law Abiding Citizen and remembering 300, I thought it was Mr. Butler time

Scottish actor who has appeared on film, stage, and television. A trained lawyer, Butler turned to acting in the mid-1990s with small roles in productions such as the James Bond film Tomorrow Never Dies (1997), which he followed with steady work on television, most notably in the American miniseries Attila (2001). He garnered critical acclaim for his breakthrough work as the lead in Joel Schumacher's 2004 film adaptation of the musical The Phantom of the Opera. In 2007, Butler gained worldwide recognition through his portrayal of King Leonidas in the film 300. Since then, he has appeared in projects including P.S. I Love You (2007), Nim's Island (2008), RocknRolla (2008), The Ugly Truth (2009), Gamer (2009), Law Abiding Citizen (2009), The Bounty Hunter (2010), and as a voice actor in How to Train Your Dragon (2010).

As a person who follows your work, I can honestly say this is yet another example of your pristine vision. I can always tell when I get an update from your work, because you have a signature style. Realism, with a flare..There's a bit of you in every piece! This is what makes a portrait great. A simple carbon copy of an image into graphite is impressive, but not soulful. Your images have soul.

It's hard to judge originality when its within the context of a portrait. Essentially, a good realistic portrait with originality, to me, would be a direct copy of the original, preserving and omitting certain details based on the artists own eye. I feel like you did exactly that. I did a quick search on Google and found the original image. I enjoyed the fact that you adjusted the tonal quality of the suit to better fit the image, and that you kept the off center tilt of his shoulder instead of cropping it out.

Technique: 4
Everything about this image has been perfectly executed except for ONE single thing! The eyes don't sparkle like they should. The eyes are the window to the soul. Cliche, I know, but the contrast of his light blue eyes has not really translated through the graphite. Literally, a few dots of highlight would eliminate this and this would be PERFECTION.

Impact: 5 (duh)
This packs a wollop. Even as a thumbnail, I was like "holy COW!!". Your skill is unbelievable, and draws the viewer in.

Do you edit your drawings to make them look sepia?
This is beautiful btw
AmBr0 Featured By Owner Dec 22, 2011
I use paper with a certain sepia tone that gives that appearence.
SSSTEP Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Wooow really? So like some kind of magic paper :P
Do you want to tell me which paper you use? :P
AmBr0 Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2011
Sure, I'm using different kind of paper but the most used is smooth Canson Gvarro lineal sketch (for my portraits) 160 g/m2 but you've got me there, Gandalf lends me a hand ;P

Hope it helps!
SSSTEP Featured By Owner Dec 25, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
