Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn

To match with Arwen, I have drawn Aragorn from The Lord of the Rings, played by Viggo Mortensen. I also made the drawing in 2005.
Even this drawing I made two versions of, the first one looked more like Jesus, so I had to do one more.
I began to draw portraits in 2005 and there were many drawings I failed with in the beginning. To see better my progress, I often drew the same drawing twice.
Even in this drawing I used a 0,7 mm pencil.

To continue in the silent picture theme, I have now drawn one of my biggest role models; the legend Charlie Chaplin.
In this drawing I practiced to make soft lines and shadows, to get the right film grain/20s feeling to it.
I drew the lines with a 0.7 mm pencil and for the shadows I used Cretacolor soft graphite pencils, B, 4B, 6B, 7B, 8B, 9B.
