Are you familiar with German actor/comedian Mike Krüger? Prior to – as well as during – the creation of this piece, I wasn’t either. I had been searching for high resolution photos to use as reference for some of my portrait drawing. The photo I used for this project caught my eye because the gentleman featured seemed very kindly but had a hint of mischief about him as well. I knew that the photographer was Daniel Cramer, but didn’t initially know who the model was. I posted this to DeviantArt and within a few days, two people responded by saying it appears to be Mike Krüger. While I do not have absolute proof of this, it certainly appears to be the case.
This drawing was created on 9″ x 12″ Strathmore 300 series bristol board using graphite and black pencil.
