This artwork explores my lifelong interest in celebrities from films and Netflix shows. My main skill set is drawing, for this artwork I have selected 3H and 6B pencils and charcoal. Using this medium, I was able to create shade and tone using a blending stick.

This series of portraits celebrates the success of the actors in films and Netflix shows are drawn on wide cartridge paper. The 3 characters were Miguel Diaz from Cobra Kai, Lara Croft from Tomb Raider, and Young Sheldon from Young Sheldon. My main inspiration was the artist Ben Heine, he takes photographs matching them with his realistic drawings.
