Bob Dylan in Charcoal by dwightyoakamfan Bob Dylan in Charcoal by dwightyoakamfan
- drawn in pencil and charcoal -

The paper is 9x12 and is from an acrylic pad so the texture is almost like a canvas. This was the best I could possibly do quality-wise.

Drawing I did of '66 Dylan... I hope it doesn't terrify you as much as it does me. LOL. :) In a good way, of course.

Any critique or comments you have are
greatly appreciated and wanted!!! <3

I am not the biggest fan of portraits (mostly due to my many years in photography) but when I saw this one was of Bob Dylan, I had to check-it-out!

Great drawing and a Very good likeness! You captured his little smirk perfectly!

Yay, thank you so much! :) So glad to hear that you like all of them... I still have more of him that I haven't even posted. LOL.

I think your art of Bob is great too :D I like how he actually looks like him unlike some drawings of him LOL! You got a very cool style too... and your cosplay pictures are loads of fun! :3

Right after I left that comment I looked through your gallery, and I'm just really shocked that you're 17. Hopefully with some practice I can get really good soon, since I'm just 16. Haha. xD
Really? Thank you! I try. xD

Thank you very much! xD Well... I only just turned 17 back in December 27th. xD

And, hey, it can happen!! If you look at my stuff from around, a year or so ago, I think that I've improved so much in a lot of different ways!

I've probably got an unfair advantage, even though I do work really hard on improving my drawing (it's basically all I do except practicing harmonica and piano, haha) I also have more time on my hands than most people being homeschooled xD.

I'd love to see more of your Dylan drawings, really!! :la: I think they're really very good and interesting!!

Oh really? Haha, I turn 17 in June. So maybe I'll wake up one morning with skills. xD
I go to a special highschool where you major in the performing and visual arts. I'm an art major, and I've got no time to practice drawing. Doesn't really make sense does it? xP

I've got lots, actually. They're just little doodles in my sketchbook, but they're alright. Maybe I should put them in my scraps. I've also got one I did a few weeks ago that I think looks amazing, but it looks horrible and out of proportion when I scan it, so I haven't uploaded it. Hah. xD

LOL, it can happen. For real! XD

That school sounds cool! Although I wouldn't like not having time to draw.

Haha, I got one of those in my sketchbook of '80s Bob that I like in person but it looks pretty outta-whack scanned. LOL. :3

Yeah, it's pretty crappy.It's a great school, it's just that I can never do anything anymore. Dx

I actually took a picture of my drawing with my sister's Nintendo DS which surprisingly takes great pictures...I'm gonna upload it onto my computer and see how it looks.. xD
