Awake My Soul - Jared Leto

Do not use in any way without my written permission!

Just a very quick watercolour painting of awesome Jared Leto, actor and singer of my favourite band 30 Seconds to Mars.

Yesterday I nearly exploded because I had all this artistic energy in me but I couldn't find a suitable picture to draw of Lee Pace, who I really really REALLY (!!!) wanted to draw. So, instead, I chose a picture I had saved on my computer from Jared Leto. I just ... HAD TO DRAW SOMETHING! Somewhere I read that the definition of an addiction is the craving of the substance and the withdrawal symptoms if you don't get it. So, I guess, I'm addicted to making art. ... I think this is my 15th drawing of him ...

Anyway. I think it turned out OK. Could have turned out worse, but I think I'm making (slow) progress with watercolours. I also used some white charcoal here, which I'm glad I did because I like it better now. Also, it's not in my usual style but I thought HELPIDON'TKNOWWHATTODOIHAVETODRAAAAAAW!!!! what the heck, lets try something different. ;) But, as always, it looks better in real life.

Size: slightly smaller than DIN A4
:bulletblue: Paper
:bulletblue: Watercolours (blues and grey)
:bulletblue: White charcoal
:bulletblue: F pencil and kneadable eraser
The reference picture is from Kurt Iswarienko, I think.
The titel is from a song by Mumford and Sons.

Comments and critiques are very much appreciated :D.

I really like the subtle, transparent look of it! This transparency works well with Jared's pensive look :aww: You managed to capture his resemblance very well, especially the eyes. They turned out great :heart:
