Dr. Sheldon Cooper by Stanbos Dr. Sheldon Cooper by Stanbos
Portrait of Jim Parsons, bristol paper, 26,4 x 42,7 cm, graphite pencils (2H to 8B), nearly 16 hours.

Bazinga ! The brilliant and "sarcastic" Sheldon Cooper (The Big Bang Theory) ! My favourite TV character portrayed by Jim Parsons.

I'm sorry if the hair looks odd, the scanner made it rather strange (and that's also because I really don't like drawing brown hair x)).

For my sister !

Hey there - actually, the comment you made about the scanner is something I wanted to ask you about. You use a scanner, rather than photography, to digitize your work? (I guess 'digitize' is the word?). I've read that it's better to take a photo of one's work with a hi-res camera than to scan it but your work looks amazing. What sort of scanner do you use?

A simple scanner ! I don't agree with your source, a scan is really better than a photo, especially for graphite drawings, because it shines because of the flash... And without flash the quality isn't excellent. And last but not least, the paper is a little bit warped at the end, the scanner flatten it !

I once had a math professor who was like him!  He was from Princeton, he had a high-pitched voice and said things like "gosh golly" and "wowee zowee," and he even looked a bit like Sheldon!
