Drawing Groot from Guardians on the Galaxy

I am Groot

I decided that due to the release of Guardians of the Galaxy, plus how popular it was I would draw one of the best characters personally to me.....this being Groot.

I decided to draw a head shot of Groot. Using a simple HB mechanical pencil.

As you can see I started with a simple outline of his face. I then focused on the eyes and making the wood effect. Shading Groot was an enjoyable experience as I have never shaded a drawing to look like wood before. All was achieved using a HB mechanical pencil. 

I like using this pencil because it means that my lines are neater and also I dont have to sharpen a pencil every 10 seconds. 

I may in the future draw a few more of Guardians of the Galaxy characters and use colour, as the colours were so vibrant and detailed. 

This drawing is for sale over on my Etsy store go check it out :)

My drawing of Heath Ledgers Joker

Why So Serious?

So its been a while since I last wrote anything really. I haven't really been on my laptop a lot. More of having my head in a book or in drawing really.

After a while I started getting back into drawing.

I didn't do as much nail art. I started to get my sketch book out and started doodling. Someone I knew had seen this image on my Facebook and asked to buy it......

I said I would draw him something new instead. His reply was the Joker. I asked if he wanted comic, animated or film joker and he replied with Heath Ledger as the joker. 

I looked at a few images of him and started to sketch away. This was the first ever commission I had done and wanted to get it right.

All I used was a mechanical pencil 0.7mm and that's all. 

  Here's the finished article finished and framed.
