Day 257: A Ghostly Faced Scientist

A Ghostly Faced ScientistFor today I decided to take another shot at drawing a character from a television show.  It’s not the same character as last time but I think this one may be a little bit more recognizable.  What do you think?  Anyone want to take a shot at guessing who he might be?  The other benefit to drawing characters and celebrities occasionally is getting the opportunity to gauge how recognizable your sketches are.  The last one definitely wasn’t at all.  This one at least passed the husband test.  I’m not quite willing to call that progress since they’re so different but it’s something.

I’m not sure I’m happy with the shading on this one.  I’ve been experimenting with different things and I’m just not sure how I feel about this one.  Any feedback would be appreciated.  I think it looks pretty strange having the face so white while the clothes are so dark.  I’m just not sure whether the solution would have been to have more white in the clothing or more shading on the face.  I suppose I’ll just have to experiment some more.

    1. The character is Rodney McKay from Stargate: Atlantis. The actor for him is David Hewlett. It seems like no one other than my husband was able to guess this one. Maybe I just don’t have too many Stargate fans among my followers though …

    1. That’s actually a really great guess. He’s actually supposed to be Rodney McKay from Stargate: Atlantis but now that you mention it he does look quite a bit like Walter Bishop too. I never would have thought that those two looked at all alike until now. Thanks for guessing :).


    1. Lol, no. He’s not actually supposed to be that scary looking. That’s just an unfortunate effect of my shading choice for this sketch.

      He’s supposed to be Rodney McKay from Stargate: Atlantis. It’s not a very old TV show at all. No one else was able to guess it either though.
