Orlando Bloom by thewholehorizon Orlando Bloom by thewholehorizon
As much as I wanted to draw him as Legolas, I still haven't found just the right reference photo(s) yet, and I even had a hard time finding one as himself that was good angle/lighting/resolution. No lie-- 2 whole hours went into searching through images alone.

Originally I thought it was just a plain black suit, but when I adjusted the curves to see some more definition in the hair, magically the stripes popped up!

By the way, I started making my works available for download in higher res than what displays on the page. I went back and made it available for many of my featured pieces as well, so you might want to check them out!

5x7" on bristol paper
Graphite Pencils HB, 3H
Charcoal Pencils HB, 2B, 3B, 4B
Black Fine-tip Sharpie (eyes only)
White Gel Pen (eyes only)
Tortillon
Kneaded Eraser

Total drawing time: 8-10 hours
