Rami Malek WIP for my school Art Club
Love Rami in Mr. Robot. Thought it socially significant someone was playing that type of character in something other than a comedy. Rami did a great job with Bohemian Rhapsody, so there was that, too.
My first choice was John Wayne. Then I read about his Playboy interview back in the day. "Oh, Hell no!" I quickly realized.
At my school, walking students through a drawing like this is HARD. Entertainment and emotional stimulation are the driving forces behind 99% of the kids I come across. I'd give my soul to work with kids who are driven, motivated, and disciplined. Working with my kids is like pulling teeth.
None of which is to say I don't enjoy success with my students, because I do. But they could do better, had they the supports and resources enjoyed by children born to better socioeconomic conditions.
Still, one kid is stronger than most by a wide measure, and I've got high hopes. When we finish, I will put that work up as well.
You know what? I think I'm going to put a LOT of my students' work up here. People need to see what we can do.
This is a little drawing on 9 × 12 Strathmore Bristol. We are using Cretacolor Nero Charcoal Pencils and a Kimberly 2H for light values.
I suppose I need to put my work online somewhere....
