Brad Pitt as Tyler Durden (Fight Club)

"You're not your job
You're not how much money you have in the bank
You're not the car you drive
You're not the contents of your wallet
You're not your fucking khakis
YOU are the all-singing, all-dancing crap of the world"

*Tyler Durden - Fight Club

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Done in 39 hours on A4 drawing paper
* mechanical pencil : 0.3mm 2B - 0.5mm 3B
* regular pencil : B - 2B - 4B - 6B (Faber Castell)
* kneaded eraser, eraser, blending stump, tissue

I love this movie, very very much, and Tyler's philosophies are better than any politician nowadays :D
And I swear, if he's real and build an army, I will definitely join him, no doubt . . .

That quote above is my favorite quote from him, I thought the meaning of that quote is to live your life like you wanna be, don't pretend, do whatever you wanna do, and never regret that :)
And if someone is trying to tell you to stop, then f*ck them, they don't live your life . . .

Second hardest after Selina Kyle's drawing, and I really had a hard time (yet fun ^^) at drawing the background, especially the fence in the right side of Tyler.
Maybe it looks just a normal fence, but it consists of thousand mini/tiny dots, using 0.3mm mech pencil, just to give a rusty effect =p
And I forgot to draw the electric wire extension in the right side of him LOL :D

As a big project, I like to draw something like this, a scenery-like drawing ^^

Well, this drawing is dedicated to all Brad Pitt, Tyler Durden, or Fight Club fans, I hope you like it :)
Thank you in advance if you like it :D

*play Fight Club's ending theme song here (Pixies - Where Is My Mind) =p
Enjoy it . . .

I wanted to draw this shit too for some time ago, but got scared that the fence on the background can be too boring.... )

Just dropped this drawing over the reference photo in photoshop. You've got different tonal values to the reference I found but proportionally it's exact. Do you trace the parameters of your copied sketches?

I used grid method on this one, and it's about 1cm x 1cm grid, so yeah, I tried my best to be exact like in the reference, the outline itself took me around 3-4 hours, very tiresome but still fun of course :D
Thank you so much :bow:

Thanks for that, it's good to know your method. Is suppose the grid stops things getting out of control. Still a 1cm grid in proportion to A4 - you must be very patient to be so accurate.

I think that method is being used by a lot of full-realism artists, it's common actually, but I already left full-realism, it's so boring and taking a lot of time to accomplish. Beside, it was my old method, I used a way more different methods nowadays, and I draw portrait mostly. Thank you as well.

But I think I'm retired from full realism like this lol, it's too consuming, either time and energy :D

Thank you once again :bow:
