Mr. Davy Jones by a-rueskov Mr. Davy Jones by a-rueskov
"Do you fear death? Do you fear that dark abyss? All your deeds laid bare, all your sins punished? I can offer you…an escape."

Finally finished!! :faint: Took me FOREVER, I know.. But here it is!

I was on interrail around europe for two months where I didn't bring this, and now I'm going to Australia, so I thought I'd finish it before i left. :la:

So here it is! I should probably refresh his facial features, but I don't really bother to do it. A shame the shades kinda blur when you work on the same drawing for almost 2 years :blush:

Anyway! It's approximately 25x35cm and made with B and B2 mechanical pencil. Have absolutely no idea how many hours I spent on it.. Maybe around 50 hours.. Don't really know!

Davy Jones is played by Bill Nighy and is © disney

I absolutely love this! This might sound a lil corny but everytime I start questioning myself when it comes to drawing and all I have to do is look at this and it inspires me everytime to keep going and keep improving! Keep up the awesome work :)

I actually thought it was photoshopped when i first looked at it then i went "HOLY S*** SOMEONE DREW THIS. WITH A PENCIL." and i literally just sat there for 10 minutes, gaping at this drawing. You. Are. Amazing.
