James Dean by Stanbos James Dean by Stanbos
Portrait of James Dean, bristol paper, 25,2 x 38,1 cm, graphite pencils (2H to 8B), nearly 16 hours.

Aaah, James Dean ! I just saw him in Rebel Without a Cause, he's a great actor, and had such charism ! And the photo I was inspired by is perfect too... There were many reflections on the scan because of the dark graphite pencils in his hair, I corrected it as much as possible on Photoshop, I think this version is respectful of the drawing.

For the WIP, it's here : [link] !

WOW! This is so AMAING ♥ I also love James Dean. And the movie 'Rebel without a cause' was brilliant. He was really a special guy.
