AL PACINO by Thea-Nu AL PACINO by Thea-Nu
What's left to say... Just couldn't resist to draw him as I loved his acting in "The Godfather". When I was looking for a reference, there was just one useable image. But fortunately it was a very expressive shot. I experimented with several stuff to get a plain black background. And it's definitely the deepest black I've ever reached. Hope you like it (:

Amazing!! How did you end up doing the black? Did you colour it all in with black marker or was it mixed?

I actually mixed it, there's a layer of black marker and a graphite one for the finish :)
