Sketch of Alcide
Ok, so..... I watch True Blood. And I have discovered that the pretty people on the tv will hold still for you if you press pause, making them relatively easy to sketch ;)
Joe Manganiello (hopefully I'm spelling that right) plays a character named Alcide Herveaux (maybe I'm spelling that right too?) on True Blood (well, at least the name of the show itself is easy), and I had a lot of fun with this sketch. It started off as just graphite on gessoed canvasboard, because graphite feels amazing on gesso, but I couldn't manage his lovely salt-and-pepper beard in graphite and the acrylics started sneaking in somehow. And dripping. I love the dripping.
