The Mentalist by pbird12 The Mentalist by pbird12
Finished with a day to spare :D

My entry for Dominikas contest ilojleen.deviantart.com/journa…

You have a day to enter if you've not already :la:

So my choice was The Mentalist, I LOVE Simon Baker and love this show :love:

Materials for this one -
A4 Bristol Board
Graphite - 2H, 2B and 6B
FC Polychromos
Erasers
BluTack
Time - 9-10 Hours

Refs - www.fanpop.com/clubs/the-menta… mentalist.informe.com/gallery/… dontreadthespoiler.blogspot.co…

There is a bit of a mega close up (about 4 times bigger than reality) of Simons eye here for the questions on skin

Thank you for taking a look
Paula :heart:

An Interesting find - This is a waffle, so feel free to ignore :lol: I never draw with colour pencils on plate finish paper for obvious reasons. But I drew this on Daler-Rowney bristol board and the colour pencils went on .... and they blended ... and they look like paint in real life ... I like it! I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't tried it out myself. I did only use 4 colours mind you, with a max of three layers are any one point, but for graphite drawings with a touch of colour, I think this is good :dance: So, I'm just sharing my find :nod:

EDIT: Updated with a better scan :)
