The Arty Blogness of Ansate Jones

John Simm

Here’s my favorite photo of my favorite actor, John Simm, redone in pencil. I’m trying to get used to drawing in backgrounds, instead of just leaving portraits on a backdrop of white. It’s more difficult than I thought!

Also, I wish I could get my pictures darker. I’m using a 7B and it still looks too light to me. I’m considering moving to charcoal and/or pastels. Any fellow artists out there with other suggestions?
