Irish artist Barry "Jazz" Finnegan has been making some excellent charcoal portraits in recent months, like his fantastic one of Brian O'Driscoll, and with a new X-Men coming down the line, his latest effort focuses on one of the biggest characters from the franchise, Wolverine.

Hugh Jackman's character is captured pretty amazingly here by Finnegan in incredible detail, in what must have been a painstaking process, but he has a great track record in recreating movie characters like Bane and the Joker from the Dark Knight series, as well as Irish sports stars like Conor McGregor too, which can all be found on his Facebook page.

The process is a long one when it comes to creating these images, and just in case you don't take our word for it, have a look at the different stages that his work went through on the way to completion.
