~EDIT~ changed the main picture...WOW does it look bad in details lol I guess i need more practice or to spend more time on things like that haha~
It's been 3 years since i traced the lines of one of my favorite men on this planet with a pencil. GACKT. He is right now on his BEST album's tour and in a few days will celebrate his 40th birthday, so i thought there's no better opportunity/time than NOW.
By far, this is THE MOST CHALLENGING portrait I've ever did in my entire life, fits perfectly with THE BEST theme lol
I started this on Tuesday and just finished it now. The figure is from one photo, the background is from random stock pic from here (which as an idiot as i am i didn't save >_>) and the feathers, well u don't realy need much reference for them.
It's quite difficult for me to draw these things since i have such a short lived patience, but i got it under control and would just put the wprk away if i get even the sligh will to rush things, that's why some parts of the mask are kinda so-so lol to be honest? GACKT's face and hair was easier to do than the goddarn mask! xD I have to admit that there are parts that are not perfect, but not because i was lazy or in a rush but because i still don't know how to make them perfect lol
I hope it does look like him, i know it is not perfect but i put my BEST in it and i'm praying that everyone will like it cuz to be fair, i'm not someone to be proud of stuff i do, but THIS ONE.... I AM! lol
I will probbaly change the main picture to the one of a better quality as soon as i will get hold of my NIKKON D40x ..... And...i just realized i forgot to sign the drawing... >_> whatever lol
