GACKT BEST OF THE BEST THE BLACK FEATHER by shadowfriend GACKT BEST OF THE BEST THE BLACK FEATHER by shadowfriend
~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

You can check the work in progress here - [link]

You did an amazing job with this! :)
he effort you have seen to make this art-piece as perfect as possible is really showing to me as a viewer, and I'm sure many others see it too^^
I love Gackt and I'm very critical of people who draw him because they almost every time end up fucking up some part of his face that makes him look like not himself x3 but you managed every single bit of his face and hair^^ -clap-
Will you draw Gackt in future too? :)
This art of your earned a fav by me^^ made my day! :3
