Quorthon; Thomas Ace Forsberg (Bathory) – Pencil Portrait

Process of a Drawing

Finished this last night! Took a better photo today in the daylight! Pencil portrait in A4 size, I only used HB-pencils in many layers to create the really black parts! I rarely use any other kind of hues, just regular “writing” pencils!

Thomas Ace Forsberg, also known under the name Quorthon, formed the band Bathory around 1983 and the band had a huge impact on the 90’s black metal scene in Sweden and Norway, and still have!

This is the progress of a portrait of this deceased legend, image by image!

All hail Quorthon!

This was a funny project to do, especially because the background is not what I usually do! But I am trying out some new styles (like the sketchy Erik Danielsson (Watain) one) and it turns out pretty ok!

We will see if I will be able to finish another portrait very soon! I have a lot of ideas of new artworks 🙂
