:faint: I can't believe I finished this in one weekend. I had to draw this, bake a strawberry swirl cheesecake and 2 batches of s'more bars. I'm so beat!!!

This is a birthday gift for my supervisor. She lovesss Ian Somerhalder especially as Damon Salvatore. Hopefully she'll like the goodies and Ian!

Amazing work on the values! I love how there is so much in between black and white here. That's partly what makes it so photo-realistic, the skillful use of values in the skin tones.

Thank you kindly. I think tonal value is one of the main key ingredients to photo-realism so I try with every ounce in me to render great value, texture and dimensions in my drawings. :D
