Sammy by Wicked-Illusion Sammy by Wicked-Illusion
EDIT 2016: original for sale in my Etsy Shop

Jared Padalecki
as Sam Winchester from the TV show Supernatural

Teary-eyed "baby" Sam from the very first episode of Supernatural. :aww: My 1st entry for 'Drawn to Pain' contest held by LiveActionTVMovieArt. Was it because of a dead girlfriend, mum, or something else, it was too long ago to remember exactly, especially after you marathon a few seasons in a row to catch up. :D

Continuing with practice on black paper. Try no. 2. A bit more complex this time. Little note to self: start sharpening the damn colored pencils!!! This ain't graphite!

Tools used:
  • A4 Canson Mi-Teintes black paper
  • Prismacolor and Faber Castell black and white colored pencils
  • Cretacolor and Conte white and gray aquarelle pencils
  • toilet paper for blending the background
  • white gel pen
  • stick eraser
  • ref picture

I think I can see where you say you messed up, but it doesn't bother me at all. It's still amazingly detailed and his hair is just... awesome. I LOVE ALL OF THIS. :heart:
And I know about sharpening pencils. I have a bad habit of hardly ever sharpening my graphite pencils (mechanical pencils yay I'm lazy), but you just have to sharpen your white pencils every three strokes or something. :ohnoes: And not to mention scanning these things. :|
But it's still my favourite medium to work in, and to see others work in! :hug:

Thank you very much! :glomp: All my H and B pencils up to 6B must never be sharpened. Once a year or so sharpening is necessary of course if I used them a lot, but I'm using mechanical pencils more and more, even on big drawings now. So far I've tried sharpening colored pencils from three different (good) brands with good sharpener and none sharpened nicely and/or from the first try, nothing like they originally came. One's point broke more than once till I manged to sharpen it, the other one's little piece of tip got chipped, the other one's all bumpy...wtf?! In short, no luck with sharpening either of the pencils and getting nice smooth sharp point and wood holding it undamaged. I thought the scanning would be even worse than it is. The more surface of the paper is filled the less job with the scan to make it look like something. :D

Ah no, I hate that about coloured pencils! I had that problem too, until I accidentally found one of my sharpeners who sharpens them perfectly. :B Maybe you can find a sharpener especially for coloured pencils? I know those exist, so. :B
True, although my scanner seems to disagree with my black paper in general, it is easier to scan (/edit to look right) when I've drawn more on it. :lol:

Aww, baby Sammy! It's ridiculous how young the boys looked in the first season compared to now, isn't it? :aww:

To the drawing - wow. It's absolutely stunning! I know you may see a lot of flaws in it, but to me it looks perfect! I'm also amazed by the progress you made compared to your first drawing on black paper, the level of detail you put into this is unbelievable. No matter how many hours you worked on it, it was worth it. :clap:

Apart from that - congratulations to the username change! :party:

Yeah, it is, especially Sam. :) Thank you very much! I just started another SPN fanart and really hope it will be much better than this one. (haha I still can't make myself work on the big graphite one) I think I'll draw at least one more Sam too, only more recent version of him :D

Nice work; keep it up! Try make-up sponges cut into whatever wedge-shapes seem useful for blending background. They're cheap at a dollar store and work well...:sun:

Well dear I think this looks awesome I love the detail you're able to capture in this dark piece... I've recently purchased a set of 12 Lyra Rembrandt polycolor grey tones and i can't wait to try them out... I need to figure out what I'm going to do with them though and your work is very inspiring :D
