Photorealistic Sketch of Philip Seymour Hoffman
(pencil)




A pencil drawing of Philip Seymour Hoffman I did as an art project during my undergrad. My undergraduate degree is in computer science and engineering, but I've always loved to sketch, and I took a fundamentals of 2D art class while working on my bachelor's degree. It is an attempt at a photorealistic drawing based on a photo of Hoffman I found in a magazine at the time. This was done many years ago, and I've lost the information I had on the original source. I want to say the original photo was from a GQ magazine back in 2000, give or take a few years, but I'm not really sure anymore.

Update: The original photo that I drew this from was on page 107 of the January 2001 issue of GQ magazine. I'm still not sure who the photgrapher was.
