Jared Leto 2 WIP by Melusaaste Jared Leto 2 WIP by Melusaaste
Well. Yeah. There were things that bothered me in the drawing so I made it better and thought that I could post a WIP picture too, with a few close-ups. I hope you like it. :)

Download for better quality, please.

UPDATE: I found the sketch! I was cleaning my room (for the first time in six months...) and I found it under a big pile of clothes. That's why it's a little wrinkled, sorry about that. So now you can see the compelete painting process and this is also a proof that I didn't manipulate or paint over a photo.

amazing!!...how do you make the skin smoother do u use the smudge brush....and how do you add that texture to the skin and the small details around the eye around the eye...cuz i get kindda lost after step four..and it is truly inspiring for me to see you draw with a mouse and to see the that you dont have a scanner or a tablet cuz i cant afford them and it has been very frustrating up until this moment... now that i have seen your work i know the word artist means doing the best you can with what you got ..so thank you very very much for this.. sorry for the sooo many questions but your work is shocking!! and truly mind blowing and i would like to learn as much as i can... and thank you again for sharing your amazing work with us ..

Thank you! I'm glad you like my work :) To make the skin smoother I just use soft edged round brush with very low opacity and then I paint the little details of the skin one by one using a very small round brush. It takes forever but it looks pretty good. :)
