Drawing~ Chris Skelton

I have been drawing this for the past, uh, month-ish for about 5 minutes every night. And for a 14 year old kid who can't draw a straight line to save her life, I think I did okay; not the best piece of artwork ever, but it's alright I think. The link sends you to my dA account where the full view of the image is =D
Oh, and a) my scanner sucks so I lost a LOT of shading and depth.
               b) My reference photo was printed out by my crappy printer, which turns EVERYTHING orange and can't distinguish shading.
              c) That weird dark patch on the nose is in fact where the rubber got wet and stained the paper permanently. Ignore it.
It's Chris Skelton [Marshall Lancaster] from Life on Mars, drawn with a ("hideous", as described by my art teacher) cheap HB pencil.

Wow, that's really good, actually! Considering I'll spend most of my summer vacation-slash-time off from work walking around "artists" trying to sell drawings half as good as this on the streets and such, I think you should definitely be proud of you talent. :-D

WOW. I am always in awe of anyone who can draw anything and this is really awesome! Must have taken a fair bit of commitment to keep working on it for so long, well done you!

Also, you're 14! Yay for teen LoM fans! :D (I'm 15)

Really, I can't draw anything... it's my magical cheap HB pencil that bestows any powers of "greater than a scribble" on me xD

Wh00t! xD There just aren't enough of us, are there?

Aww, this is awesome! You did a fantastic job on the eyes, which really brings the whole thing to life. You say you're fourteen? You've got a lot of talent - keep it up! :]
