I wanted to work on a portrait of an older person with wrinkles. I had found this picture of Sean Connery a few months back and thought it was pretty cool. I think it’s an unused promo picture for League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.
This one took a while. About 17 hours total. I drew this on Bristol vellum paper. HB-8B pencil used.
I hope the wrinkles look good. On DeviantArt there are a lot of excellent portraits where artist make wrinkles beautiful. But there are just as many, if not more, where the face just looks dirty with wrinkles. I hope mine is more of the former.
What’s your favorite Sean Connery movie/performance? My favorite is Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade.
I hope you enjoy this one. I really enjoyed drawing it.
