Elvis - Viva Las Vegas by hoernchen610 Elvis - Viva Las Vegas by hoernchen610
I had so much fun drawing this and the result really makes me happy.
The reference was on my disk for quite some time, but I waited for the right point of time to finally draw it.
Drawing the "Las Vegas" sign was pretty tough and it took surprisingly long.
I will post a 'Making of' in the next days, so stay tuned!

Pencil on Hahnemühle Sketch Pad (190g).
Pencils used: HB for the outline and light parts, 2B for the skin and medium dark areas, 6B for the black stuff. Tissue, kneaded eraser, eraser pencil, tortillions and q-tips.

LOVE IT!
This is THE most amazing Elvis drawing on the face of the Earth. No exceptions! Seriously, it can't get better than this...and if there is something better, link me to it now, because it's darn near impossible! I do not adore Elvis as much as my mom and grandma...I adore him more than they do. And I'm flipping out at the amazing masterpiece that is this drawing. If I had room in my bedroom, I would ask permission to print this and put it on my wall. Then I would sit and stare, and think about how you managed this level of epic-freaking-win.

Oh my god, words can hardly express how I feel about your wonderful comment:love:. I'm really incapable to thank you in an appropriate way for your kindness:blush:. Your support really means a lot to me and I'm so so glad you enjoyed it so much:w00t:.
I would consider this drawing of Elvis([link]) as better than mine, mostly because it inspired me to draw this.

Do you learn German?

Yes, German is my favorite language! But I speak English because of where I live. Q_Q What about you?

I dunno about that drawing...I like yours more. *eyes dart around* I hope Cataclysm didn't hear that...I like that drawing too...but I just wowed at yours, I mean, I looked at it, And I could have sworn that it was a photograph! His hair looks so real! It's like you just put him on a piece of paper and he can't move anymore.

No problem and...I hope to major in German and English when I'm in college, because I really want to teach them and show people how awesome they are. :iconimhappyplz: I wish I could go back to Germany. Munich was a lot of fun.:squee: I see pictures nowadays and I get homesick. >_<

Fantastic job! I do suggest that you make your own watermarks, however; the big clunky dA watermark right over his face is so distracting; it'd be so nice if it was on his collar up by his face or something; that watermark is just so distracting from this beautiful art.

Thanks for your thoughtful comment! I really appreciate the time you spend on writing these kind words!
Making my own watermark is a great advice and I'm definitely drafting my own in the next days!
Thanks again:tighthug:

No problem; your art is just SO GORGEOUS, it pains me to see it completely covered up by dA's clunky stupid watermark. I wish they'd make it so you could place it where you wanted, then the problem would be solved! :shakefist: Can't wait to see yours, I know it will be beautiful :cuddle:
