This drawing got signed on March 29th, 2009!!! Hope to get a good scan of it soon.
...So after the drawing of Jared Padalecki was done, and many people were looking forward to a portrait of Jensen Ackles as well, I decided to take a 3-day break from studies and start a new drawing.
I said to myself: 'I want to make the best thing I've ever made.'
And honestly... I have never been so proud of a drawing before as this one. In 3 days, more than 12 hours a day, I worked on this drawing until I got headaches.
As finishing touch I added my signature and proudly looked at my drawing.
I challenged myself by using coloured pencils too.
I was scared at first, but it's good to push my boundries this way. So what I did was using 7 different colours for drawing the eyes.
Jensen Ackles reminds me of Jeff Buckley who happens to be my favourite musician
hence the title 'Dream Brother' which also connects to his role in Supernatural where he appears as Dean Winchester, the brother of Sam Winchester played by Jared Padalecki.Stuff I used
4H mech pencil for background
2H, H, HB, H mech pencils for the skin & facial features
2B, 3B mech pencil + 7B regular pencil for dark parts
Italian coloured pencils
tissues for blending large areas
tortillions for blending small areas

Very special thanks to =DavidDeb
