Nicholas Brendan - Xander by amberj8 Nicholas Brendan - Xander by amberj8
A3 charcoal sketch of the wonderful Nicholas Brendan as Xander Harris from the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This was drawn for a friend to take to a convention and get autographed by Nicholas (as you can see, the photo is taken before the signature), and I think it came out pretty good. This was my first attempt using cotton balls to blend the charcoal in the shadowed areas (usually I use tissue paper), and I LOVE how it worked. MUCH easier to get the right tones.
Anyway, hope you like it. :D

Gorgeous work, Xander is so cool. I particularly like the way you did the hair and the background.
