T. E. Lawrence
As played by Peter O'Toole in the film "Lawrence of Arabia". For my art teacher holiday gift exchange this year we gave the name of a celebrity we wanted to receive art of, but we didn't know who the art was going to be for. After checking out all the possibilities online and changing my mind a few times I chose this image mostly because he was young and it was also his most sexy role. It was also more challenging for me because it's always harder to draw attractive people that craggily old faces with lots of character. Every little subtle stroke can make a huge difference in capturing the likeness.
I also used one of my vintage frames for this project.
