Sketching: James Marsters as Spike

I put this up elsewhere on social media yesterday but forgot to share it here!


I am just coming to the end of an epic Buffy and Angel rewatch. I already drew Wesley from Angel, so how could I resist also doing Spike from Buffy (as played by James Marsters)? I simply adore him!

Drawn over about 5.5 hours with pencils, 8B, 4B, 3B, 2B & H.

As always, my scanner killed the contrast, so I had to fix that in PS before posting. Otherwise, as drawn.

I still draw flat on the table, but I think I really do need to learn to use the easel. The face proportions look exactly right looking down at an angle, but when you look dead on, his face looks a little too thin around the cheek on the right hand side. Meh. I must keep practicing. Other than that, I am reasonably happy with how this turned out.
