Henry Cavill 3-27-2017 by khinson Henry Cavill 3-27-2017 by khinson

Here is a 5 x 7 drawing of Henry Cavill.  I've been trying to branch out and draw men more often.  This one took much longer than I expected, but that's partly due to me spending my spare time watching the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament.  I also think I spent a lot of time just looking at his whiskers and trying to figure out how in the world to draw them.  I love drawing hair that's on someone's head, but whiskers just throw me.  My husband reminded me that whiskers are just like hair that grows on our heads, it's just coming out of the chin.  Lol!

 

I have no rights to Henry Cavill's image and the reference is from HenryCavillBR.com.  Here’s the link:  www.facebook.com/henrycbrasil/…

 

Time and materials:

17 hours

5 x 7 smooth series 300 Bristol board

Kimberly pencils 2H to 6B

2B Staedlter pencil

2B, HB and 4B mechanical pencils

.3mm mechanical Pentel pencil

kneaded eraser

blending stumps

Kleenex

Drawing facial hair is one of my favorite things to draw, hahaha. I always look forward getting to that part. It's probably why I prefer drawing men too... *ponders*

You did an excellent job on the "whiskers" I say :D. Well done indeed!

Thank you! I've always struggled with drawing men, so it makes me feel better that you like how he turned out.

Thank you! I don't like how angry they make him as Superman. Batman is supposed to be the angry one. Lol!

Thank you! I think his beard should probably have it's own mailing address. It about did me in. Lol!

Nice. Realism is to tough for me, yet some people are so talented and make it look easy. Very beautiful rendering.

Breathtaking! I think I'm in love!

I have to disagree with your hubby though. Whiskers are not the same and hair head at all. Head hairs are family, beard hairs are individuals.

Thank you!  I agree with you 100% about head hairs and beard hairs.  I'm going to share your words with my husband!  :)
