In defense of our dreams - Jared Leto by arthawk87 In defense of our dreams - Jared Leto by arthawk87

Do not use in any way without my written permission!

My 10th (completed) drawing of Jared Leto, thought it was worth mentioning :D.

I’ve been working on this on and off for the past two weeks. I had found this cool reference picture and thought I’d try to paint it in ink... which was kind of a unusual idea for me because I've never learned to paint with ink, not even at art school.

Anyway, for the longest time - until yesterday evening, to be exact - I didn't like it and never even would have considered uploading it here on dA. But after having accidentally splashed some white ink on it I started to like it, so I covered Jared with some tape and added more splashes.

I like how it turned out, considering I've never done this before :-).

Time: [pick a number between 10 and 15] hours
Size: 14cm x 17.5cm / 5.51'' x 6.89''
Materials:
:bulletred: Acuarela paper from Oxford, 240g/m2
:bulletred: 2B pencil for sketching
:bulletred: White and black ink from Pelikan
:bulletred: Small and medium paint brush
:bulletred: Dip pen
Reference: www.thirtysecondstomars.pun.pl… (and once again, I don’t know who took the picture)
Titel: "In defense of our dreams" is from "Kings and Queens" by 30STM :heart:

I hope you like it and please comment :-)

:( < sad face, but you do have loads so i think i'll be okay :) and i love Ian Somerhalder! (not as much as Jared) but yer he's cool though i have gone off vampire diaries, i stopped watching when he ripped out that werewolf guys heart, the one who was like Tylers uncle or something. But yer he's good as the bad ass vampire :) i bet it'll look great! is it him as like a character or just him as him?

Oh too bad... did you stop watching VD2 because Damon killed Tyler's uncle? Let me just tell you, it gets really nerve-racking after that! I'm currently re-watching the second season, I think it's way better that the first!
Yeah, same here, nobody beats Jared :D! But I'm taking a break from drawing Jared, I'm officially out of drawable references... Actually I'm drawing Ian as Damon, reference is a screen cap from season 1 (I think) :-).

ahh cool. yer i just got fed up of them killing off all the new characters, like there was Anna, Pearl that Harper chap then Mason hahaha that was his name!!! (the one who damon killed) and i just got fed up, as well Catherine was annoying me. but yer he does look good :)

Oh, in that case it's good that you stopped watching it, because even more get killed after Mason (even someone who has been there since the beginning... but I won't tell you who in case you decide to continue watching it :D). I really like Caroline, especially in the second season, but I really really don't like Bonnie! And Stefan, either!

thanks (for not telling me) and no i was never keen on stefan, and caroline gets even better when she becomes a vampire! I havent really ever liked Jeremy or Bonnie either, she is just so annoying!

:iconarthawk87:
arthawk87 Featured By Owner Sep 27, 2011   Traditional Artist
Yeah, I think so too, vampire Caroline is awesome :D. Ughh, Jeremy... It's not that I don't like him, but... okay, I don't like him. Not as much as Stefan or Bonnie, though. And Anna, didn't like her either. And at first I didn't like Elijah either (was he already in the picture when you stopped watching the second season?), but he totally grew on me. I guess that for me, nobody beats Damon :D.

I was pretty stunned when I read your comment and learned that you used ink for drawing this! If you asked me I would've sworn this was pencil on paper. Or like your other recent drawing of Jared Leto, white pencil on black paper. I guess that's because the typical ink strokes are missing here. Not that that's a bad thing, not at all! Did you do most of the painting with brushes? Anyways, I think this is terriffic, especially considering this was your first try with ink! I also love the splashes they very much underline the emotions of this drawing, give it an extra portion of energy! :heart:

Aww, thanks so much, glad you like it :cuddle:! I like the splashes as well, I think it would look very boring without them.

I know, it doesn't look like an ink painting... maybe that's because of my need for smooth changeovers in shading? Or maybe it's just because I don't know how to use ink =p. I think one uses ink because of the typical ink strokes.

Yes, I did like 98% of it with brushes and used the dip pen only for highlights (hair, beard, underarm hair) and little details (eye and nose). The tattoos were made with my smallest brush I have. I have so many brushes, and I never use them so I didn't even know I had such a small brush :D.

You're very welcome sweetie!
Only drawing with ink stokes defenately needs some getting used to. And I like that you didn't use ink the way anyone else does, makes it more special!

That's not a bad idea actually :-), I'll have to check it out. My sister has a car and we always go together to their concerts so that wouldn't be a problem (but it can't be on a working day because I have to get up early for uni...). Thanks for the tip :cuddle:!

sounds great to have a sister you can always go with.
Well you go check that out then!
The concert I'm going to is on a tuesday. So I'll just take the tuesdays and wednesday off of work:P If they make a big deal out of it I'll just happen to be sick those days:P
I never miss work so should be fine.

Let me know if you find anything!:)
