About the drawing

This portrait of 30 Seconds To Mars members: Shannon Leto, Jared Leto and Tomo Milicevic was commissioned. Somehow I prefer drawing celebs for commissions as I always get a good quality photo, taken by a professional photographer, not some "party pic" which might be unsharp and too pale. So I was even more pleased when I was drawing the musicians that I actually like. The reference photo had been chosen by the commissioner, a girl, who gave this portrait to her sister as a b-day present. Both girls love it, what makes me really happy :la: Although I was sad when I was at the post office to send it :noes:
As I tend to complain at what I draw, this time I'm quite happy with the outcome. Well, Jared's hair may seem less realistic in comparison to Shannon's and Tomo's; and the studs of Jared's jacket were huge pain in the ass! I found the exact copy of the studs impossible to render, thus I let my imagination do the job :aww: Shannon's head was the biggest challenge - it is ~9cm from the top of the hair to the chin and 6cm from the ear to the cheek!

Hope you enjoy it :iconjaredlaplz:
But please, no comments like "OMG it's 30 Seconds to Mars, I love them!"
without saying a word about the drawing itself. I would appreciate some critique.

I think you are soo talented and this is an awesome drawing! I love the technique! Their hair is one of the most realistic things in this drawing. Shannon's face is great, but I prefer Jared and his beautiful hair :). You caught Tomo's face very well. I think the whole drawing is amazing. My fav part is Shannon's jacket, or coat. It's awsome!! I think you should work more in jared's sunglasses but it's awsome in this way too, it's just an idea. You caught the background very very well, it's color is amazing! A lot of people (sometimes me too) do a weird thing. They are coloring the background darker than anything in the drawing and it's not really good is it? But you didn't do this thing and I am really glad! At least, I really like your drawing. Fantastic job!

Mnie uwielbianie już przeszło, bo bardziej przemawiają do mnie 2 pierwsze płyty, niż 2 kolejne ^^; Ale nadal ich lubię :)
