Damon by Flowertree-elf Damon by Flowertree-elf
So I finally finished it. And it took so much more time than I ever thought it would. Absolutely ridiculous! :no:

First, when I finished it, I really didn’t like the outcome. I had failed to capture the special look and sparkle in he’s eyes, which was the most important part of this photo and also the very reason, I chose it. Additionally, the hair isn’t quite the way I would like it to look.

But in the end, I am still pleased with this drawing. As it is the first drawing I have done of a man. (Quite tricky to draw all that facial hair, you know.)

PS: This, of course, is a photo of Ian Somerhalder. 

Used equipment:
5H, 2B, 5B and HB pencils
Ruler
A4 paper

I mean, I like Stefan too. It's not like he's not sweet or attractive of anything like that... but Damon is just so much better haha <3

Thank you so much! I really appreciate it! :)
Did this piece a long time ago, but I remember that it did take a lot of time and patience. But it was worth it. And I'm glad that you mentioned this. Thanks again!
ps: yes, the waiting is the worst.

Hi! Yes, you already invited me to join this contest. :aww:
But I do have a question considering it: where can I find the place where I can submit my entry to the comp. folder? I'm either blind or just stupid, cuz I still haven't found it! :) Thanks.
