Detailed Speed Drawing of Elderly Man in a Hat

Here is a speed drawing video I did of an elderly man in a hat, the brim shielding the bright sun from his eyes. I used a light box and grid to sketch the initial line drawing on Bristol board paper. Then I added the light and dark tones. Finally I blended in layers of detail. This drawing took me around 10 hours to complete. Depending on the amount of detail I chose to add, it could have easily taken fewer or many more hours! This video condenses the process into 5 minutes. Enjoy!
