Sneak Peek of Damon Salvatore by arthawk87 Sneak Peek of Damon Salvatore by arthawk87
Just a little sneak peek of what I'm working on now. Can you recognize who this eye belongs to? That's right, it's Ian Somerhalder's. I'm drawing him as Damon Salvatore (from The Vampire Diaries) again, this time it's going to be a very dark and more elaborate drawing of him than the last one I did.

I'm already about half way done with it. Now comes the not so much fun part: drawing the hair and background... Oh well, gotta get it over and done with, right :-)?

Gonna scrap this later.

Thanks, very happy you like it :D.

Yes, you saw correctly; it's not in my gallery 'cause ... it still isn't finished :ashamed:. BUT since I actually like that drawing, I'm pretty sure I'm gonna finish it some day (I won't have time until the end of June, though, but I'll try to get it done over the summer, so hang in there :-)).

Wow! And I thought it's Sean Connery's eye...
I love the high contrast in it.

The imperfections in the skin that you seem to have caught beautifully is what's making drawing one of your most anticipated yet. I'm loving what I'm seeing so far...

this is detailed im not gay or anything but ian has one of most beautiful eyes ive seen on a guy the only thing is how would this look if you added colour to his eyes!!

i cant wait to see what you and(*Ilojleen) come up with im always excited to see your work...

You don't have to be gay to like his eyes, I think. I mean, if I were a guy I'd love his eyes, too :D.

That's actually not a bad idea (with adding colour to his eyes)! I'm a little afraid to ruin this drawing, but I think I'll give it a try with the next one :D. Thanks for the tip :cuddle:!

Awesome! We're still debatting on which reference picture to use, but once that's settled we will begin with our collaboration. I'm really excited about it, too, since I've never done anything like it before :-).

Oh, almost forgot: Thanks so much for the :+fav:!!!

This looks really great! Love the contrast between heavy dark tones and light tones and how you've gotten his expression. =)

Thanks so much :cuddle:! Hehe, wait until you see his whole expression, it's a typical Damon-expression, I think (slight smirky-ish, but more pensive, I think). Anyway, glad you like it so far :-).

Thanks a lot :D. Yeah, I love strong contrasts, so the reference picture was just perfect. I don't know when I can finish it (I hope soon), it all depends on University and my art collaboration with *Ilojleen.

Oooh, I love sneak peaks! *runs around and claps hands together* As most of the times, I'm mostly impressed with the blackness ... which I'm assuming you drew? Damn you. Now I feel inspired to draw.

Hehe yes, blackness is done by me :D. My 9B pencil is slowly but surely dying... don't know if it'll survive to see the end of this drawing *sniff*.

Oh but hey, AWESOME!!!!! Good news!!!! Go take advantage of your inspiration!!!!
