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.
