Heath Ledger by elvenart24 Heath Ledger by elvenart24
I am sooooo happy that I've nearly finished it. I've been working on it for the past couple of days and I will need to do some touch ups after spring break with advice from my monday night teachers. Anyways, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Hope you like it!

Tools: 2B Mech, 4B mech, 6B mech, kleenex, blending stump, ebony pencil.


Thank you to everyone for all the wonderful comments and thoughts. It really is a tradegy that he died and may he rest in peace. I was never really a huge fan of Heath Ledger because I didn't really know who he was. I'm so glad I was able to do a drawing of him though and hopefully I captured him well so that his memory may live on.

Bien...no escribo bien en ingles...así que te escribire en mi idioma.
La ilustración te ha quedado maravillosa. A mi me encanta dibujar pero la verdad no me va muy bien con los rostros, aunque sin duda alguna ver tu imagen de Heath me ha dado impulsos para intentarlo de nuevo.
Un grandioso trabajo :)

The work AND Heath lol
Your shading skills are astounding, and the anatomy is nearly perfect. This is a great photo to draw too. Your art skills are too amazing.
And as for Heath..
I miss him so.
His acting was so amazing, and his passion about it was inspiring.
He'll always be the greatest.

Heath Ledger was a wonderful actor that had a lot of potential. He was so good at his parts because he was a method actor; sadly, that's what killed him. I like this picture because it shows him for who he truly was.
p.s. the shading is great
