Richard Burton As Alexander The Great
by Lilly Antoneavic
These two portraits are studies of Richard Burton as Alexander..
I first saw this handsome man in that film, made in 1956..
Pencil on Canson Paper.. using 3 different pencils to draw this portrait..
It was not a slap dash fast job of course..
It has taken me hours to draw this portrait..
Thank you all who look at this drawing..
Note from Kerry:
These are both so very good!!! I love this pencil work, you have done a brilliant job. Love your style!
When I looked at the first drawing, I was surprised how much Richard looks like Patrick Swayze - around the eyes and the hair. What do you think?
