Movie star head shots

Comic illustrator Ghen Martin goes to Hollywood and draws his favourite film actors

Well, there’s no need of going to LA to sketch one of these movie star head shots, luckily. You only need an Internet browser to find out hundreds, if not thousands of incredible pictures from the most famous movie stars.

This section comes from the strong wish of drawing portraits from my favourite actors, always trying to fit them into a comic book style, I guess because that’s my style.  For me, there is also a special magic in the whole process of drawing on my sketchbook to see the pencil turning into someone who is able to be successfully recognised by everybody.
