Anson Mount as Cullen

Anson Mount

This is an actor in AMC's TV series Hell on Wheels 

Pencils: B-B9 with a little F
and about 20 something hours

This is the first dark background I have done. I used a B4 until I realized I had a B9. The black still did not come out as dark as I had hoped. I have seen where some people have used Sharpies to get the black very dark.(Hmm  this doesn't sound like a good idea to me) Any ideas on this? Please leave comments and suggestions on this matter and the overall drawing itself.

About Dave

David Corrigan

My passion in life is ...   well it's my wife, Candace. I also have a great love for computer programming and mobile technology.  I'm currently a grad student at a University here in New York for Computer Science.  This last January I began doodling.  This doodling has expanded into a new love of drawing.  I try to devote a few hours a day to drawing.  

I blame my mother for her love as an artist for taking a few more hours out of the day to draw. [;)]
