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'


Fo :iconloopylass14uk:
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:
