Today is King’s day and we are planning to head out in town to get a taste of the festivities. Lacking time, I wanted to do a quick character sketch of the 1994 movie Léon the professional. It is a semi-cult movie, and I wanted to capture the assassin Leon played by Jean Reno. It really impressed me when I saw this movie for the first time.
It is fun to see some progression once in a while when I’m using my sketching pencil only. I am horrible at drawing faces but somehow they turn out OK when I do not pay too much attention to it, especially the mouth which always is a hard subject for me. Being forced using a thick heavy sketching pencil (Croquis 6B), it will automatically become more about contrast and shape and not so much about details.
