Pencil Portrait of Jack Nicolson by chaseroflight Pencil Portrait of Jack Nicolson by chaseroflight
Pencil Portrait of Jack Nicolson. Done with 2B mechanical pencil, HB pencil, kneaded eraser and blending stump. Some touching up with 8B pencil. Drawn on A3 size paper.

Drawn in complete freehand (no grids, rulers etc). Took about 10 - 11 hrs.

This is probably my most detailed drawing yet :)

Especially loving the details in the wrinkles around the eyes and the forehead. Beautifully done.

Thanks! I have gone from a traditional fractal artist to a fractal painter! I was a painter before I moved to fractals, so it has been a natural transition!
