Street Fighter by Paul-Shanghai Street Fighter by Paul-Shanghai
The reference for this picture was called 'Karate Kid', a fantastic photo by dincturk [link] and can be seen here


I just absolutely loved this kids eyes, with so much life in both these and the scars all over his face. I couldn't remember the title dincturk had given the photo, and have been calling him 'Street Fighter' whilst drawing him, so I have kept the my name instead as its seems fitting :)

Usual materials used;
Bristol Board Smooth A3
Mechanical Pencils 4H thru to 8B
Time - about 15-20hours

Like yourself and pretty much everyone else, I have to agree the child's eyes and his stare are just very powerful and compelling. Great choice of composition and well executed! :)

Deserves to go straight to my 'The best' folder amazing. I was instantly drawn to this and OMG all the comments re eyes scars emotion so true but the eyebrow work is stunning

That is very kind of you, the eyebrows are very distinctive and unusual, which does make drawing them feel a little awkward - so glad you liked them and the rest of the drawing :)

My goodness, both the picture and your drawing are astounding!!! :love: And both have wonderful names! It's an amazing, work, Paul! I loved how you changed the photographer reflection in the picture for fighting kids in your drawing. Also his expression is amazing, just amazing... both of them are powerful portraits, very powerful portraits making a powerful statement.
