Bodyguard by theangryfish Bodyguard by theangryfish
This is just a relatively quick sketch I did while taking a break from my school work. I only spent a couple of hours on it so I kept it pretty rough. I used charcoal pencils and worked from a reference.
The character is from the film Zatoichi.

Beautifully rendered! I love sketchwork like this, it really shows the artist's hand.

Somehow it reminds me of the work of Drew Struzan.

And, of course it's a Samurai!

(Can someone *please* explain why there was tapdancing at the end of that movie, though?)

Ahh so awesome. I love Tadanobu Asano so much! He's in so many movies recently, but that's a good thing.
Kitano's Zatoichi was so different from the old ones, yet so awesome..because Kitano's movies are inherently awesome. :D

Very nice drawing! I will +fave with my main account. :3

awesome work..you kept the sketch a sketch, yet it's so complicated because of it's well comprehendsion of the tones and shadows and proportion... the darkness of the face is perfect..it gives life to this character.. fav!

It's obvious that this drawing is not as much detailed as the other ones, but you sure captured some personality there, even if I didn't saw the movie.
Maybe it's my computer, but the full-view looks funny, his eyes, eyebrow and the top corner of the drawing...
Anyway this looks great, even for a sketch:nod:

Actually, you're right. I messed up one of the eyes, but I guess I didn't cover it up that well.
Thanks for commenting.

There was no need to cover those, if I did that in my drawings, they'd be totally covered:lol:

Sometimes it's good to stay away from smudging, especially with crisp shadows such as in this picture. I usually make a judgement as to whether to smudge or not based on the shadows.
You did a great job with this, the constrasts and expression are great! =D
