Batman '66 - Adam West

Batman '66

In remembrance of the late, great Adam West.  

Rest in Peace, Old Chum...

(I had intended to do a colorized version of the drawing, but that's when my computer decided to crap out on me and needed to be reformatted.  So, I guess I'll be posting that in a day or three after I get everything reinstalled and adjusted back to normal.  Sigh...)

STEP ONE:  Here are the rough outlines, sketched out with a charcoal pencil.

STEP TWO:  Here's the approximate halfway point in the drawing.  I used some softer charcoal pencils and carbon pencils to smear around and blend the shadows.  Mostly, I just use my finger to smudge everything around, but do use paper blending stumps on a few spots for fine details.

STEP THREE:  This is the finished charcoal drawing.

STEP FOUR:  I used a white charcoal pencil to add highlights.  On the gray background, the white chalk really makes the highlights "pop".  Basically, by using the toned paper, you are able to get three values for the price of two.

Done with charcoal, carbon pencil, and white chalk on 8-1/2" x 11" toned cardstock.
