Revolutionary Road

Here are some Charlie Rose drawings that would not go right. The Guests were Leo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet promoting Revolutionary Road, I was drawing with a sharpie fine point pen, I haven't done a Rose drawing in a while and I think it shows in these drawings. . .

The best one of the night helped that DiCaprio stayed the full hour. Just an observation but he has really become a weedy older man and I think should gain a ton of weight and play Orson Wells in a movie.
I don't know, this is clearly not Di Caprio, I think this guy is on corner gas actually.

My last attempt at Kate Winslet. I wish I could say it was a commentary on her blankness but It's just an example of my lack of talent.

Here she is as a bobble head, Women I always find harder to draw then men, personally, Kate Winslet is no exception

This one is closer but I can't tell you why, it seems more in motion, more alive, more of a speaking likeness, but still didn't quite go in the right direction.

Here she is as I try to define the shapes more and carve out her face, unfortunately that lead to too much emphasis on certain features and she came put manly and monstrous.

The first drawing of the night. Sloppy and ill conceived. Just when you think you understand drawing enough to wing it with out thinking a series like this comes along...

The Leo at the top is hands down the best Charlie Rose drawing yet. And my god, you're right! He should play Orson Wells. Maybe a biopic about the making of Citizen Cane. He could pull off that mustache.
