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. :phew: As finishing touch I added my signature and proudly looked at my drawing.

I challenged myself by using coloured pencils too. :excited: 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 :nod: 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

  • reference image

  • Italian coloured pencils

  • tissues for blending large areas

  • tortillions for blending small areas

  • Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchbook paper A4 size

  • Time spent: approx 35 to 40 hours

    Very special thanks to =DavidDeb and *EatToast for encouraging me to use coloured pencils. :heart:

    Wait, is this a photo or a drawing? I honestly can't tell. But... I just want to take a fangirl moment and say that I squealed and did that little flip-out, face-slapping, feet-kicking thing that fangirls do when I saw this.
