Albert Einstein by SamBrownArt Albert Einstein by SamBrownArt
I started this at the beginning of June and finished it a week or so ago. No idea how many hours this took.

Done completely with 0.5mm mechanical pencil on approx. 84x60cm white board.

Hope you like :D

Technically of course, there is soo much more detail in your version!

I did mine circa 85-87. I think it was from a b/w Ansel Adams photo, but I can't remember now :-)

Well worth it, an excellent sketch of a most iconic face ... doesn't it just shout wisdom?
Love the detailing of the cuffs of the jumper.

Incredable as always, you have such talent :D Quick question, do you use an eraser to add light to things like this or do you do it all with pencil? again, amazing picture I would buy the print if I had the money xD xxx

Oh my, this is beyond awesome! His wrinkles, skin with blemishes and all, moustache and sweater and eyes - I could keep going - are fantastic. You surprisingly let a couple of places not live up to the high standards of most of the drawing. But that's why it's a drawing with personality rather than a photograph. Great job!!! :iconcrownplz:

I guess I just wanted to see the entire sweater done because what you had done was exquisite. Also, his hair seems to lose the line clarity that the rest of the drawing had. Don't get me wrong - this is a GREAT drawing! It's really a wow! Those things I mention are only my opinions and are not necessary because of the brilliance of the artistry here. :iconshinyheartplz:
