Tattoo Firsts

I have started drawing some famous basketball players to raise money for my local wheelchair basketball club . Kobe Bryant is up first. Over the years I’ve designed several tattoos, but I’ve never had to draw a person who has them. The hardest part of this drawing (so far) has been making the sweat on this head look realistic and drawing the stubble. Both of these elements are also drawing firsts for me, so overall this project has been a massive learning curve. Keep an eye out for the finished piece!

This is done on A4 paper with a mechanical pencil with 4B and 2H lead, and an 8B graphite pencil.
