Damon Albarn... the lead singer of Blur.
Now, for the problem with this... notice that this is just the fourth picture in my gallery that I've made completely with colored pencils so far? And I don't have much practice drawing hands, poses, or even a background like that either. So basically, I was getting a bit ahead of myself with doing a picture like this. :slow:

So it was a bit of a challenge, but still managed to turn out pretty good... I just worked on it really s-l-o-w. And then my scanner, as usual, ruined anything with color in it. :roll:

A4 paper
Colored pencils
Time taken: God knows

This is a brilliant picture! It actually almost looks like a painting.
And I love Damon Albarn.
I wish I could see the Monkey opera he wrote...

It's good trying difficult things, I almost killed myself last night trying to draw Kurt Cobain playing live DX

He looks gay in this picture. No offense to you as an artist or him becuase Damon is my idol. Maybe he looked that way back then but it just seems so far off from the Damon I know to day with his scruffy face and flopped about hair.

Very nice work, especially if you haven't done much with colours!!
I was thinking, if you could get just a little more detail around the eye, it would look even more realistic (although I do like it like this, sort of cartoony). But a darker ring around the iris and a little eyelashes would go a long way...

Yeah, I did have trouble with the eye... it's just very small on the actual drawing.
