Love, Lust, Faith + Dreams - Jared Leto by arthawk87 Love, Lust, Faith + Dreams - Jared Leto by arthawk87

Do not use in any way without my written permission!


Jared Leto from my favourite band 30 Seconds To Mars. It's been too long since I last drew him, but I think I needed to draw some other people. We had just grown so used to each other, so ... we decided to take a break. But now we're finally back together ;-).

All jokes aside, I really enjoyed working on this, and I'm very happy with the result. But my decision to darken the paper made it a much bigger project that I had initially planned. I did some tests to see which medium would work best (I tried a black coloured pencil, black ink, black acrylic paint, black charcoal, and black watercolour) and I opted for black ink which worked really well. But, like I said, it was a lot more work because the ink was much darker than the paper and thus I had to darken ALL black parts... :faint:. But I'm actually quite proud of myself for trying out different techniques and new media lately, so ... yeah. Yay me.

Size: 18.3cm x 18.3cm
Materials:
:bulletblack: Black paper
:bulletblack: White, beige, and black coloured pencils from Caran d'Ache
:bulletblack: Black ink from Pelikan
:bulletblack: White acrylic paint
:bulletblack: Normal and kneadable eraser
:bulletblack: Tortillon / Blending stick
Reference picture from an unknown photographer at Pinkpop Festival, June 15 2013.

Comments and critiques are very much appreciated :D.

I don't think I've ever had the pleasure of seeing such a wonderfully detailed drawing of anyone. Here you have captured everything. You captured every wrinkling of the skin, the way the tattoo is shaped from how his arm is. Every single tiny detail you have in perfected. The way his skin is down to the tiny hairs on his arm, you can just see. The reflection in the glasses is my favorite part but it was so hard to choose. If I didn't know it was part of a drawing, I would think the glasses were a photograph. I love aviator glasses because you get to see what they person sees. You even have the little stray hairs going off from his head that add to how much realism you brought to this.
You had a lot of vision I can tell, knowing exactly what you wanted to convey.
Originality and vision both I only like to do all five stars if it's a scene the person made up. But you still have a lot of both because I haven't seen this particular scene/picture/drawing before. You had the vision for how perfect you could make this, it shows.
Your technique is absolutely superb! I haven't seen better anywhere and I am an avid art lover. You are so precise.
The impact this had on me just blew me away. At first glance it did that and every time I go back and look again (which will be a lot), it does the same thing.
Your work is truly amazing! Even if I didn't like Jared Leto, I would absolutely love this picture!
Pure brilliance!

This is just absolutely amazing and holyfuckin' awesomeness!!!!! I love the amount of detail used in this drawing is phenomenal. I have to say my favorite part was the mirror shades because that is a small portion of the picture yet as highly detail with the audience and such. It's like inception almost, a picture within a picture and I love it. xD Amazing job and I wish I could draw something even close to this magnitude of perfection. :heart: :heart: :heart:

This is amazing! :love: The reflection in the sunglasses is awesome (and I know I'm not the first to comment on that :XD:), but what really impresses me is the detail. Like those stray hairs -- they're a tiny detail often overlooked, but it makes the portrait that much more realistic. :D
