A Very Student Christmas

Hopefully everyone had a good Christmas. Mine has been pretty hectic but I thought I'd share some of my Christmas gift sketches this year. It starts with the Mad Hatter, for my Johnny Depp and Alice in Wonderland obsessed friend.
It could be better. I like it but his face and hair is all out of whack. I can just say that was a metaphorical artistic choice of whatever though so, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Next is a Tom Cruise-ified Stacee Jaxx. I'm taking the "YOU EVEN GOT HIS NIPPLE PERFECT!" as a positive, if slightly worrying, reaction...

My pencils decided to take a strike with this last one I drew and would snap every time I sharpened them so I'm just seeing something really weird about the shading. And that heart tattoo came out way too red. The receiver of the gift loved it though and really, that's all that matters so I'm not too distraught.
Now you can have a bit of Colin Farrell. There's not too much to say about this one, I'm actually quite proud of it. It was a nice simple change from fiddly bits of detailed hats and tats so I really enjoyed drawing it.
Of course, I always see little tiny faults and dislikes when I look back at something I've drawn after a day of finishing it but I'll keep that too myself this time.
And last but not least, it's a guy from McFly that my cousin unhealthily adores. One of the ones beginning with a 'D'. I actually did this last year for her and just got a photo of it but it counts.
She couldn't have picked a more annoying picture really. There was a sleeve of tattoos, he has freckles, a shiny Rolex watch, tiny thin stripes on his shirt and a bead necklace but I persevered and I like it. Especially the tattoos. I love the tattoos.
That's all I've got this year. Hopefully I have more sketches done before next Christmas.
Until next time.
