Well-known for his starring role in the hit Broadway musical Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda has gotten a lot of buzz this year. Since it appears that Miranda has now left the Hamilton stage to pursue other opportunities, I thought it fitting to bid farewell with a speed drawing.
I was originally planning to just do a quick sketch, but shortly into it I decided to add a bit more detail and shading with a tortillion. This entire drawing was done with a regular graphite 2B pencil. I didn’t spend as much time on this as I would have for a more realistic portrait drawing, but it still gives you a shortened version of the process.
