:damphyr: Jared Leto...

It's done... :faint:

Me and my friends ~M-i-n-c-a and ~L-a-u-r-a saw 30 seconds to mars live last year.
We were only a couple of meters away from Jared Leto :excited:.
So after this amazing experience Minca asked me to draw another Jared Leto.

This time I've filmed almost the entire work in progress of this drawing. It took me alot of hours to put the video together and it took aloooot of time to upload the dAmn video on youtube. I waited 2 hours for youtube to upload my video, when it was completed I checked the link... BUT THERE WAS NOTHING THERE :noes: only the text: The user has removed the video. So I tried uploading it again *sigh so I waited another 2 hours. AND THERE IT WAS :la:

For more video's see my Youtube channel:

Used: 2H, 6B, 0.5 mm mechanical pencil, Tortillion for blending, kneaded eraser

this is an amazing piece!
I'm always so impressed about your technique! you're a great rolemodel for me!
anyways, i think the textures are just far beyond incredible!
It looks just like him! all ratios are perfect!
I also really like the way you drew his hair, with the combination of using dark hair and the high lights, with his beard it must have been a really precise job, and you did it very well!
Maybe it's an idea to make something that is really your own, by getting some portrait photos together and put them together in a way that it's expressive, photorealistic(that you already do), and has a little nonrealistic-twist to it, in the way that you draw something superduper realistic, but cant be a photograph or can't be actual reality, because of what's happening in the drawing. By example: add some effects.

Just amazing! cant say anything bad about it!

This is insanely well done. Again, it looks as realistic as a photograph. You've earned a new watcher. :D
