Inktober 2016 - Rondo Hatton

Rondo Hatton

Hey, it's October/Inktober!  Starting it off with a pen-and-ink drawing of B-Movie actor, Rondo Hatton.  He suffered from Acromegaly, giving him his distinctive look which he used to parlay roles in B-Movie thrillers and horror movies.

STEP ONE:  Here are the pencils on 8-1/2" x 11" cardstock, done with a .5mm 2B mechanical pencil.

* * *

STEP TWO:  The inks were done with a No. 8 round brush.

* * *

STEP THREE:  I used Photoshop to put in some stylized shadows, etc.

Done with pen and ink; colored in Photoshop.



  1. I like this one, man. He'd intimidate me.

    1. You and I, both! :-D

      If you do an image search for Rondo, there are better pics. You may actually recognize him, since he was so distinctive... as opposed to my drawings of him. ;-)
