WIP - Stephen 5 by fadedsg WIP - Stephen 5 by fadedsg
my 5th drawing of the lovely stephen colbert. it's not finished, obviously, and i don't think i will be able to. it was hard to draw stephen's sweater in this one, because, i believe, it's a wool sweater and the texture is just beyond my abilities, so i'll just leave it as it is. anyways, please critique and tell me what you think.

What I think! You know what I think! I love it and I wish I had kept up my drawing instead of letting it fall by the wayside.

I want to see the others.

I wish I could say something worth your while, but I can't. I'm just in awe, your ability to do portraits is amazing :wow:
Really, you inspire me to try and do more portraits myself, though I'm sure they will fall short of yours :lol:

oh psht. I'm a cheater. i use digital media crap, i've got grids and undo buttons and fill tools and whatnot. i've only done a few portraits traditionally, and i suck at it :lol: yours are so much more awesome and you can tell how much work you put into it =D

HOLY... GAH... wha-?!?!?! HOW?!?!! :faint:

its like the sky opened up one day, God personally sent an Amazing Drawing Lightning Bolt of Justice down, and it landed on you. thus, you absorbed all its kick ass powers and made this.

thats how I think this happened. its the only way that something so beautiful could be made. :love:

LOL! :D :hug: thank you for your awesome kind words! i was laughing reading it. haha. thank you! but i think that bolt was meant for someone else and i just happen to be lingering around somewhere in the corner trying to steal it from other artists. haha lol...
but thank you again! :thanks: i'm really happy you like this drawing of colbert.

well then... your a ninja for stealing someone else's lightning bolt. COME ON! who else can leap mid air and grab a lightning bolt??!!?!? only one person... you.

and it was probably a lightning bolt aiming for Brad Pitt. he doesn't need to know how to draw, he is already good enough! so huzzah interception!!!!! >:]

and BOFBFBFBBFDOJSOPNOL! who wouldn't like this?!?!?! (if there actually is someone out there that doesn't, i will stab 'em :stab:)

:glomp: :heart: :love:

this is amazing and INTENSE! everything... his eyes... the hair... it's just glorious!


magnificent... i think is the best word to describe this one. seriously.


you make me want to give up on drawing so bad. lol. but i guess i should do it cause i like it. and also i really shouldn't compare myself to you, cause you're at a level of excellence that very few ever reach. you've got super human drawing powers. i mean you even drew his glasses amazingly! wtf! lol.


but yeah, this is really great. i absolutely love it! phenomenal work! :+favlove:

God, it's so amazing. Truly, you do such fantastic work, I would nominate you in a heartbeat to paint Stephen Colbert's next portrait.

How long does it typically take you to draw?

fadedsg Featured By Owner Dec 24, 2008
Thanks! Oh, that would be an honor, but I don't think I will do a good job though! :D

This drawing took me a little bit longer than most of my other drawings, because I drew it on 11"x14" paper normally I draw on 9x12 or smaller. I'm guessing about four days total altogether on this one expanding over two or three-month period. Usually a drawing will take me about a day or two to finish.

I'm really glad you like this one of Stephen! :)
