Army of One... John Lydon by markstewart Army of One... John Lydon by markstewart
Graphite on A4 smooth Bristol.
Vocals with Public Image and front man for the Sex Pistols back in the day. I first heard the pistols back in 77 and as a 14yr old their music blew my mind .. never looked back ;)
Who? .. Anarchy for the UK www.youtube.com/watch?v=1TMiqp… "bad language warning"

Ha ha, John Lydon has such a fascinating but slightly crazy-looking face. You've captured that well here.

wonderful work! you make the white wires with a rubber, or draw the black background leaving white streaks? I never use the eraser to make the hair, I think that's why it takes me a lot.

Thanks very much, if i remember i used a kneadable eraser on this one because the hairs were quite straight. I've switched to using a eraser pencil now which i find a lot easier especially for nice curved lines. I still sometimes need to redraw over the hair area to thin them at times though.

I think I found yet another artist to add to my watch list!!! The wrinkles... how did you do that? What sorcery is this?!!!

markstewart Featured By Owner May 21, 2013   Traditional Artist
Thank you, i appreciate it. Glad you like it .. plenty of layering with soft 4B-6B and blending stumps (dirty and clean)for blemishes and wrinkles and gently lifting graphite off in places with an old kneadable eraser.. hope that helps (i've been experimenting with this for a while now) :)
