Robert de Niro playing Vito Corleone in the second movie:

Original Pen & ink drawing of Robert de Niro

Quote text added to drawing

After scanning the drawing, I darkened the inked section on the left and made a few small adjustments (it’s funny the things you notice once you look at a drawing on a screen – almost the reverse to proof-reading, where you notice mistakes after something has been printed…) I couldn’t decide if the quote from the movie distracts too much – so I made 2 versions :)

Here are a couple of the drawing stages:
