More Conte' Drawings

Here are a few more conte' drawings that I've done over the last 3 years.

A still life drawn from life and photograph.
It was an assignment my first year at Ringling.

This is a portrait I did of Alabama football coach
Bear Bryant. It was a Christmas gift for my dad a few
years back. I used photo reference for this piece.

This is actor James Caviezel in his portrayal of
Jesus Christ from the film Passion of the Christ.
I used photo reference from the film.

Hi Mr. Killian,

I wanted to ask permission to use your drawing of james caviezel as Jesus for my Church. I will be sure to give you all the credit for your amazing work.

I am trying to do a still shot for teaching. The topic will be " Do you really want to know Him".

CptnEdge of Edge of Eden Designs.
Not my real name of course..I like to keep my private life just that private.
