Ian Somerhalder by dreamarian Ian Somerhalder by dreamarian
:bored: This took forever to do but is was worth the effort!:iconheartorangeplz:

I don't want to talk about the mission it was or the amount of times I had to scan this before it eventually (almost) looked like the actual drawing.
You'd think I'd learn and stop combining graphite and aquarelle pencils? But no...
It is currently too contrasty and the colours too saturated but I give up. I want a new scanner! A3 preferably...so Santa better save up this coming year.

Another thing I regret is not choosing an image of the actor where he looks...well...more like himself. I liked this one because of the variety of textures (and the fact that he looks more manly and less like a boy).

So this is the bad dude from "Vampire Diaries"...still haven't watched any of it.

:iconloveorangeplz:I'm entering this drawing in *Egil21's portrait contest::iconloveorangeplz:
