Can you believe it??? I'm faning for a vampire... ok, for the actor who's playing a vampire, but still! Who would have thought - not me, anyway!
This is Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore in the tv series 'The Vampire Diaries'. He's the reason I'm watching that show! He's so mean (I love the mean guys, ever since I was little) and he has beautiful eyebrows ! But appart from that, I think he's an awesome actor who has an amazing spectrum of different facial expressions (have you seen what he can do with his face ?!?!). I also loved him in 'Lost' but I stopped watching it when his character died!
This ... sketch (yeah, let's call it a sketch ) is only to give you a taste of what I'm intending to draw in the new year. I plan on doing some Ian drawings in 2011. For all you Jared fans out there: this is not the end! I'm gonna continue drawing him and maybe also the other members of his band 30 Seconds To Mars. 2010 was all about Jared, so maybe 2011 will be about Ian. We'll see, I may still change my mind .
So, I wish you all a very happy, successful, stressfree and artistic 2011! See and talk to you in the new year !
Edit: This looks so much better in real life than scanned... I hate my scanner!
The shading on the face is just fantastic, and the texture it gives feels so realistic. I love it, especially since even though the hair is "unfinished", it just seems to complement his face, which really feels like the strongest presence in this image.
It seems to me that we have more in common than I thought I was reading your description and felt like I'm reading my own Though I made a small one and your's more "flared-out" I'm fascinated with his mimics and eyes and eyebrows too
In LOST I saw that he's cute and probably that's all)) BUT! He is obviously splendid as Damon, I saw him in a few other movies (not counting LOST) and it's his best role, I think)) He's devilishly charming and sarcastic in this series Though I think the whole show is a bit superficial) Hey, but why can't you watch the 2nd season online?
So far I've only seen him in Lost and VD. Though I have another movie with him, I've never watched it - so I can't really say if Damon is his best role. BUT I really love him as Damon. And I agree, the show isn't very interesting or catchy, if it wasn't for Damon .
I don't want to watch it online, my tv has a much bigger screen, you know .
Great work on the likeness! I have to say your drawing skills are really good. I love your gallery!!! I've started doing some Ian drawings, so maybe my 2011 will be about him too. I find him extremely easy to draw...now I hope my scanner works... P.S.: sorry if I made any mistakes, I’m trying to improve my English
This is my first drawing of Ian, and somehow he was - to my big astonishment - very easy to draw. Maybe that's because of his unique features which make him easily recognizable . Have you drawn him many times already?
Hehe, I know that I wrote that maybe 2011 will be an "Ian drawing year" (or something like that), but I'm still working on some drawings of Jared Leto... So we'll see if I get to draw Ian again .
And btw, your English is great (from what I can tell; I mean my English isn't perfect) so don't worry about that !
