John of Young Guns and Karolina  (commission) by Ilojleen John of Young Guns and Karolina  (commission) by Ilojleen

Facebook | Tumblr

:icondonotuseplz::iconmyartplz:

Basic info

:pointr: size: A4
:pointr: H-8B Koh-I-Noor pencils, a regular eraser, a kneaded eraser, a Pentel white gel pen
:pointr: time: approx. 30h
:pointr: a commission

About the drawing

The couple that has been portrayed here, is John Taylor, the guitarist of the band called Young Guns, and his fan, Karolina. The drawing had been commissioned by Karolina's friend, Monika. The reference photo was a real one, it wasn't a photomanipulation from two pictures.
It was a very pleasant portrait to draw :aww: I enjoyed trying out drawing a new texture - I meant the texture of his hoodie. I'm happy their faces didn't turn out flat as it sometimes happens to me, because of the low quality and contrast of the reference photo and [this one was very nice, big and sharp].
This was the last commission I had to draw! :iconflowerdanceplz: Dobby is freeeeee! :XD:

Added later:
John saw my drawing! :happybounce:

Thank you :iconohstopityouplz: I'm pleased you like this drawing :iconglompglompplz: But just to clear things up: I'm not a fan of Young Guns. This was a commissioned portrait, drawn for someone's request. I don't mind YG music, tho, I very much like one of their songs - Bones. That's all :B

It must be a nice feeling to complete things like this that someone is going to love and cherish. The hoodie texture is really good and is almost begging to be stroked.:icontuzkistrokeplz:

I guess this means we have more pretty boys on the way.:facepalm:

Oh, come on! Are you jealous or what? :nana: It was a commission, and haven't you noticed the nice gal on the right?
I'll tell you a secret, I'm drawing two girls at the moment, hope it satisfies you, you naughty frog! :D

Thank you :heart:

Of course I'm jealous, I'm jealous of your talents, popularity and the fact I don't look anywhere near as good as you in a skirt.:iconreallyweirdplz:

Two girls together? I'd better start taking my energy drinks and building up my stamina so I can handle the excitement.:iconverexcitedplz:

Hahah, I dunno if I should thank you or better run to the toilet, because my full bladder might not make it :rofl:
Anyway, thank you, you're too kind for me, but don't forget you're talented, too! With The Sandman is among my top fav portraits at dA :aww:

Hold on your horses [lol, no pun intended :XD:], there will be two separate drawings, not two girls in one :giggle:

Again a brilliant job, I love the draping and application of textures of fabric, her hair was great technique and anatomy of the portrait was perfect.
You may not know, my opinion right, with respect to the white background, if he were fading from the top down diagonally from right to left could give a different atmosphere, more like just an opinion said it is already wonderful work!

Thank you for your kind opinion :iconredbullglompplz: I'm glad you like the portrait! I agree with your suggestion, but it was a commission - I do, what they ask for. The commissioner didn't want any background.
