I have a quick question! Or maybe it is more concrit I need.

I've done a drawing of Dean Winchester from Supernatural, and I need to know if it is any good! I know I should be able to tell, but I find after spending the time drawing, my eyes and brain aren't objective anymore. I literally can't tell if it looks like him. This was a relatively quick drawing - I did one 2 years ago that was smaller and in full colour that I liked (although, it wasn't perfect) but this one I just don't know about! The colour is a bit wonky and the photo was taken with my Ipod so the quality of the photo isn't amazing, but it is the drawing that I am concerned about.

Can anyone give me a clue? Any help is welcome! If you think it looks more like your neighbour's nephew that Dean, please say so!




Am also posting the original photo used for reference, as your suggestion, Beckie!



Eta: I did add another version of this pic including Sam but have since decided it's not good enough for a public post, so have taken it down.

It's very close, but not quite; something about the lips, maybe.
ETA: It's quite lovely, though!

Thank you! I have actually gone and changed it up somewhat now, just elaborated on the whole thing. NO ENTIRELY sure it's made a difference, but I think you were right about the lips and I have tinkered there!

I have no idea who Dean is but that's a beautiful drawing and it absolutely looks like a human so you get 10000 points from me!!!

Heh, thank you! I have elaborated on the whole thing now, and added a distinctly odd looking Sam, who is his brother in the CW show Supernatural. Also, human is good!!!

I do think your technique is great, however, there is just something not quite right. I could 100% tell it was Dean, but maybe it just needs a bit of tweaking. Profiles are hard to get right!
If you post the photo you used as a reference, it might be easier to point out what needs work.
But like I said, great technique and overall, totally a good drawing! :)

Thanks for the comments! As you will see I have gone farther with the whole thing now, and added a Sam, who is distinctly dodgy looking! I've tweaked Dean's mouth and chin, rounded it out more I think and put some more shading in.

When I look at Sam side by side on the screen with the original pic I can see all sorts of things that are off. Hoping I can put them right with judicious use of a putty rubber!

Any thoughts??

Eh, looking at the photo, I don't like it at all, but I THINK it looks better than that in real life (bearing in mind it was an Ipod photo!).
