Ewan McGregor,
one of my favorite actors
(Star Wars, The Island, Moulin Rouge)
He's also going to be in The Men Who Stare at Goats which comes out in November

This is my first attempt at really, really realistic shading as well as my first realism portrait in a while. I'm happy to say that I'm very pleased with how it turned out. At first, I was afraid it wouldn't look like him, but it actually kind of does! But I know that I need to work on hair and lips for future portraits.

One of my blending tissues (first time I've tried this method. It works really well)

and a BIG thank you to Cataclysm-X for her amazing tutorials!
