Fallen Soldier by golfiscool Fallen Soldier by golfiscool
This is a commission I've been working on the past few days. The subject is a US soldier who was killed recently. The commissioner is giving this to his family with condolences.

Make sure you thank a soldier next time you see one.

I did this drawing on Bristol Smooth which I haven't used in a while. I forgot how difficult it is to get darker tones on this paper.

8"x10" Strathmore Bristol Smooth
3b, h, 7b pencils
blending stumps and tissue
8-10 hours

awesome! But i don't mean to be nit-picky... he is a Marine not a Soldier. Soldiers are in the Army.

Amazing drawing though. Great job

May I ask how you got his hair to look so soft and real at the same time! What is your technique?
