Jared Padalecki (aka. Sam Winchester) off the hit TV Series Supernatural is a babe. Any arguments? No? So you’ll understand when I found this photo and decided I was going to draw him.
It may sound stupid, but I’m a serious n00b at drawing and always needed to trace myself an outline so I could get the detail and precision my perfectionism craved. It was like a drug – making my drawing match the original to the point where the line between photograph and drawing were seriously blurred. I was – am – proud of those drawings, but it only continued to grow more and more destructive as the need for picture perfect artwork eventually caused a cataclysmic halt on my art.
Before this, I hadn’t drawn anything more than a doodle since high school.
Three years ago.
One of the regrets I continue to have is letting my art go. I love my art, even if it was started with a trace, and I love doing it and looking at it and just being really fucking proud of myself. So when I went out and drew this hunk without a trace?
I had a bottle or two of wine in celebration (which may be why he looks so feminine).
So instead of hiding my drawings, whether traced or not, here’s to putting it out there and being proud and finally showing off my hard work.
I plan to have many more.
Check out my Deviantart (where I just bought premium – I’m a weak adult) where I will add more of my old artwork and continue to keep up with my new work.
