EDIT 24/10/12 Tom has seen this - I sent it to him via Luke, and both were so kind as to send me an email telling me what they thought about it (I feel it would violate the value of the private exchange and his and Luke's trust to say what exactly) and encouraged me to keep drawing.
EDIT 24/08/12: Thank you so much for all the lovely feedback, I didn't expect it at all! So I'd like to say I appreciate every comment, favourite and watch I got as a result of this. <3
Final part of the three-part gift to my friend Vikki for her 17th birthday.
Tom Hiddleston. A3, mars lumograph pencils.
I enjoyed doing this very much, and I really feel like I've surpassed everything I've done prior to it. There's a lot of firsts in this: First time drawing a detailed picture of a man, first time drawing a beard (boy that was stressful)
I also tried the scratching technique I've seen referenced in numerous places, used for eyebrows, fine hairs and beards.
