Willy Wonka by Raechel Willy Wonka by Raechel
Did this over the summer. I was in an anime class, but I didn't feel like doing anime, so NYEH.
I'm very satisfied with the gloves and the hat, but that gave me less inspiration to do a lot of the face features. Blech.
Depp is shockingly pale, eh?
I just tweaked it on Photoshop to give you guys a closer sense of how dark it actually is. I was shading really hard with that 6B and I just wanted the hard work of my aching fingers to be featured.


Materials: 2B, 6B, Kleenex, Q-tip, regular sketch paper

Very well done. I love the details on the glove espatially. The only thing I can think of that needs work is the 'W' on his collar. I can barely see it.

I thought it was very cool it came out. It is totally random. Sometimes a deviation with 100,000 views comes up and other times ones with just a few :shrug: ~ thought Depp was great as Willy Wonka.

The Man You Are About To See Has No Fucking Neck!

Love the piece, but he really is missing a neck!

Thanks for the comment! With these silhouette images, I try to duplicate the source as best as possible; in this case, no neck is visible because his collar is flipped up. :)

Very nice work. I like it a lot, even though the movie didn't really do much for me. An excellent likeness. Only a couple of things that stand out to me -
First - the hatband on HIS right. In the transition area, where the shadow picks up, I think you could have continued with the detail of the material there and simply made it darker. Its a little distracting the way it is. You have texture, which is very nicely done by the way, and then you have this odd shadow pattern that looks rather unevenly shaded.

The other thing that jumps out at me is the gloved hand holding the brim of the hat....because of the character's pale skin, the glove gets lost against his face, even though they're obviously is some space between his face and his hand. The shading makes it hard to tell the two apart. I think that a little darker shading, maybe around his fingertips would help bring the two apart more.

Again, an excellent job. Nice work.
