Jared - The Memory Remains by Cataclysm-X Jared - The Memory Remains by Cataclysm-X
...EDIT...
Added a lot more details to the shirt and changed a bit on his face :)
I did this before I gave the original away but never posted the updated version so there you go ^_^


.......................................


Sam: 'Dean, there's ten times as much lore about angels as there is about anything else we've ever hunted.'

Dean: 'You know what, there's a ton of lore on unicorns too. In fact, I hear that they ride on silver moonbeams, and that they shoot rainbows out of their ass!'

Sam: 'Wait, there's no such thing as unicorns?'

....

Dean: 'Bitch'
Sam: 'Jerk'

Hope you like it baby :hug:


Jared Padalecki played Dean in Gilmore Girls, and these days he plays Sam in Supernatural!

:star:.:About the drawing:.:star:
I thought I would have a lot of troubles drawing this image. The reference image was very pale and had a few contrasts. I didn't know what to do!
A few weeks ago I bought a dvd box of Supernatural with season 1 to 3. Now that was a nice reference for me. The more I watched, the easier it was to draw Jared Padalecki.

The hair was easy to draw, but it looks very different from the original photo. I think I'll keep working this way. A realism portrait doesn't have to be an exact copy and drawing like this is leaving my trademark. :)


The skin however was incredibly hard to draw. From a short distance it looked nice but from a large difference it looked bad so I had to refix it over and over and over again.


Background was fun to draw. I always keep wondering if I won't screw up when adding a background but I guess I didn't. At least I think so. ;D


----------------------------


:star:Stuff I used:star:
  • 2H, H, HB, B, 2B mechanical pencils

  • tortillion and tissue for blending

  • reference image

  • Hahnemühle Sketchbook paper A4 size

  • kneaded eraser for fixing the skin

  • Time spent: approx 20 to 25 hours


    Work in Progress 1
    Work in Progress 2


    For the very first time I'm 100% pleased about the watermark, lol!
    Stupid people, stop stealing my work! Watermarks are 'fugly'



    Title from Metallica. :headbang:

    I always watched Gilmoregirls and got to know him as Dean, so now when I watch Supernatural, I always get confused because for me he is still Dean, but in Supernatural Dean is his brother xD

    This drawing is amazing *____*
    I love Sam in Supernatural <3

    Goodness, another piece of yours I love!
    You really know how to capture a character's essence... this is so... good.
    The entire thing is perfect, but it's the eyes that really get it for me.
    That's always the most important thing to me with portraits and you certainly have a way with them. :)

    He looks real! LOL.
    And he looks so cute and young! :la:
