Draw this again - Jensen Ackles
My second entry to the contest:yay:
I fell in love with the reference photo when I saw cataclysm-x's version of it. She did such a wonderful job and I thought I had to do this too.
So I started drawing the before image in 2011 but right after I finished and scanned it I was really unhappy with the outcome, everything was so blurry and there were no real highlights and shadows.
After some time in a folder I decided to frame and hang it to the wall above my workspace.
Just then I realized how I upset was with the result and so I reworked the old drawing.
And I really like what came out of it. The image is much sharper and the light and dark parts are better leveled now.
This is an even smaller improvement than my first entry. Only when taking a close look at the two drawing you can spot the differences. But I feel much better now when I take a look at my wall and see the new image.
