All Of This Past by Crimefish All Of This Past by Crimefish
"I have searched for
A reason to go on
I've tried and I've tried
But it's taking me so long

I might be better off
Closing my eyes
And God will come looking for me
In time

All of this dust
All of this past
All of this over and gone
And never coming back
All of this forgotten
Not by me..."
- Sarah Bettens

I wanted to draw Jensen over and over. So I did. This picspam was perfect. No use trying to improve on it, so I just copied the whole thing. Full credit to nutkin (and CW) for the refs.

It's enough to drive you crazy; the contrast between how sharp and scratchy his stubble looks, and how smooth and soft his lips look (except for when I really wanna hand the guy my chapstick).

:bulletpink: graphite pencils - 8B, 5B + mechanical pencil
:bulletpink: A4 cartridge paper
:bulletpink: photo references - Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester [link]

My god this is amazing! The seperate pictures must be so tiny. And ugh I can't get over the amount of detail here. Your colored pencil drawings already inspired me to try drawing with them!
I must try someting like thi when I have time ;)

Oh! :lol: How awesome. Glad to have started a trend. I have to give credit to nutkin @ Livejournal for the references. I drew them almost exactly the way she had cropped them. I think the only thing that allows me ANY credit for that at all, is how unusual this kind of composition is, in fine or traditional art genres.

Thank you. Anyway, off to comment on your drawing now!

Thank you! I don't know what episodes the references were from~ the poster didn't specify. But the picspam was posted in 2007, so I guess season 2 at the latest.

so lovely looks just like him, whenever i watch supernatural i see about a million images i want to draw and i wish i was as good as you so i could! instead i just get frustrated when i attempt to.

Crimefish Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2011
Ahahah! I don't think the frustration ever stops. But if you were satisfied with your work, you wouldn't try as hard to improve. I think it's the difference between people who really get better, and people who draw at basically the same skill level their whole lives.

I try to work around gaps in skill by thinking hard about which moments I could pull off, or what way I could portray them that'd look good... but mostly, the best way to improve is by challenging yourself. If you keep drawing things that frustrate you, that's a sign you're challenging yourself, and then hopefully you'll make quick improvement, and it won't be frustrating for long.

Anyway. :heart: Thank you.

This is so stunning. I swear, every time I see one of your or one of Nicolien's drawings, I just wanna never draw anything ever again, because I feel I am not worthy. But in a good way. Because you are just so ridiculously good. Wow. : )

HAH. It's more like "Jensen's lips over and over" than just "Jensen over and over".


But OHGOD you are so fabulous (just in general), and this piece is just...just....*drools*

Really, in general? :lol: You're an excellent commentator. Thank you very much.
