Matthew Fox by Zindy Matthew Fox by Zindy
Jack from Lost....
I've always felt kind of sorry for Jack, he seem to be so tormented by never being good enough. I think his character is a really good and honest man, who just can't let go and always keep fighting (for the good).
Whenever I see him I can't help but think of my brother who has a very similar look and face expression.

Lately I have been watching DVD's of of the older seasons, I don't think I ever get tired of watching that show. Whenever I see them again I feel I discover something new, which is quite cool.
I can't wait for season 5 to start in 2009. Lost is one of the best shows.

It was interesting drawing someone with a bit of age, it's very different and a challenge to get the right amount of age to show. John Locke is still on my list of people to draw, I just really need to be in the mood to draw a celebrity.

The bakground leaves I did from another Lost photo, as I wanted to try and create a background around him. I do prefer a more neutral background on drawings as I feel it often steals the attention if you add a too detailed background. I think that's what happened here too, still it was nice to try it.

Made with soft charcoal.
34x29 cm (14x12")

This looks like they took a picture of Matthew Fox, and put the sketch effect on it.

How do you make the shading so deep and realistic in your portraits?

This is most excellent. You got all the details down pat. And with charcoal too? That's great skills right there. Jack is a complex character but he's been through so much; he stays more sane than most people probably would. (And I am so glad he is finally dismissing Kate in this Season 5.)

I've always HATED Jack, you know it's as if he doesn't have a drop of faith in his blood :-& but you've drawn Mathew Fox even better than he looks. ( I don't even consider him hot in the appearance, lol!)
and I don't feel sorry for him, I pity him!
let me know if you wanna draw Richard, John or James! :love:
Don't read this if you haven't watched all the episodes available:
I completely agree with what James said about Jack in episode 9 of season 5. he never thinks!
