Lost Thursday

Right now I'm really missing my Lost. Two more weeks till it comes back on. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to sharpen my portrait drawing skills by drawing a Lost character every week. Per R's request, my first character in the series is John Locke, played by Emmy Award winning actor Terry O'Quinn.

Drawing rendered in B pencil and charcoal pencil on sketchpaper.

Locke is the "Man of Faith" of Lost, believing that it's his destiny to be on the island - an entity unto itself - and that the island has a plan for all the inhabitants. Locke puts so much faith into the island that it's contagious (to me at least!). He's had to overcome so much adversity in his history that I love to see him prevail on the island.

So we now know that he's not one of the Oceanic Six. (I'm not surprised there) What does happen to John Locke? I'm hoping to find out sooner than later.
