Jim Morrison by VeeEmz Jim Morrison by VeeEmz
Hey guys! Here's a drawing of Jim Morrison, commissioned by my dad ;) This one took me SO LONG to draw, I was really determined to make it as detailed as possible. I know it's not perfect, and there are a lot of things I could've done better, but I'm still satisfied with the outcome. It took me more than 15 hours to draw, but I kinda lost count near the end.
But I hope you like it! :)

Strathmoore smooth bristol board, HB, 2B and 6B pencils, kneaded eraser, eraser stick, tissues, q-tips.

This is amazing work!!!!!! Great job!!!!! Jim Morrison was such an amazing guy! I love The Doors so much!!!!  My second family got me hooked on The Doors and I have been reading a lot about Jim Morrison lately just to learn more about him and his life.

Well I usually use 2B pencils or darker depending on how dark is the hair. The steps are pretty hard to explain, but take a look at this tutorial, which I used to learn how to draw hair. [link]

He's an especially tough subject to draw. If you don't get the eyes right, it ruins the whole thing for me. That said, you did wonderfully here.
