It's looking good so far, and I've only been working on it for four days. So it's going quick compared to my usual speed.
I know the ref I used for Dean is really popular (and I hate that. 'Cause it means no matter how well I use it, there are a million better versions around) but the back-lighting worked really well for the halo type thing I gave him. So I wanted to use it anyway.
(The shading, details and everything look so much better in life. )
graphite, plus blendy thingies, putty eraser and pencil eraser (yeah, this is the first time I used those things. Just experimenting) A3 bristol board refs - Supernatural promo photo: Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester, + random wings photo ref. My FAQ: [link]
There's nothing i can say about this picture, that haven't already been said, but what the heck, I LOVE IT! it looks amazing! The blending is very well done, and it really looks like him, which is the main thing. I can't wait to see the finished result!
... Oh. You're actually right. I thought it was crazy people offering to buy it before they'd even seen the finished product, but you're right, it does look like him, so the rest of the image doesn't matter quite as much. Well. Thanks for changing my mind on that. xD Now I'm not so worried everyone'll hate it when they finally see a scan.
