Johnny Depp
Acrylic on canvas 100 x 80 cm
John Christopher "Johnny" Depp II (born June 9, 1963) is an American actor, producer and musician. He has won the Golden Globe Award and Screen Actors Guild award for Best Actor. Depp rose to prominence on the 1980s television series 21 Jump Street, becoming a teen idol. Dissatisfied with that status, Depp turned to film for more challenging roles; he played the title character of Edward Scissorhands (1990) and later found box office success in films such as Sleepy Hollow (1999), Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (2005), Rango (2011) and the Pirates of the Caribbean film series (2003–present). He has collaborated with director and friend Tim Burton in seven films, most recently with Alice in Wonderland (2010).

It took me about 20 hours in total to finish this painting.
This is the first one that makes me able to say I have finally developed a style I'm comfortable with.
I'm not completely satisfied with his facial expression though, but I guess that just takes a little more practice!
