Drawing of Andy Roggenbuck by nimra Drawing of Andy Roggenbuck by nimra
Hair study-Andy Roggenbuck

Pencil on board 36” x 25”

This was a real study in hair, beard hair vs. the blond hair against a dark background was a real challenge I was drawn to the model -Andy has a Northern Renaissance look almost of a young Albrecht Durer the pose heightens this, I think.

thanks for looking...../\\\

Edit....i darkened the background on the modes left (picture right) on the suggestion of Mike (Shelfcloud) it pushes it back and works better, gives it a more realistic space, thanks Mike!

I like how you've done the strands of hair across the face, with the skin and hair being a similar tone i'd of found it hard to define them accurately rather than just make the hair darker. Great work as usual :).

if you call it a hair study I'm really amazed what a great model you found :wow:
not only the hair and beard - but also eyebrows and eyelashes - all are with a different texture - and that makes it so sooooo realistic :)
love the way you showed the shape of the face even covered with beard :giggle:
stunning work :aww:

no, crowns in general arent made of fabric, if it was it might go over your eyes and you might use it as a excuse not to draw -cant have that

as jumper king you may be entitled to a throne of some sort

Ahh...Albrecht Durer, until a couple of weeks ago, I wouldnt have known who he was.
I watch an arts program, which featured him and his life. Truly an extraordinary man.
As you mentioned it, I knew you were talking about his self portrait.
The gold locks and pose are very similar.

Another excellent piece, well done my friend.

Again you have done a really outstanding job, I really can't believe it, you are really a master in getting so much details in a drawing :wow:
Especially the hair is great (which does not surprise me as it is an hair study as you have written), but also the eyes, they are really piercing :heart:
