James Dean by Hongmin James Dean by Hongmin
Dream as if you'll live forever, Live as if you'll die today. " James Dean is the legendary hero with a legendary story; live fast and die young. For over half a century, he has captured the world with his casual style, unflinching look and rebel attitude. James Dean has defined the essence of cool and without-a-cause for generations. His star continues to shine brighter and brighter.
Never has there ever been, never will there ever be. The one, the only, James Dean."( the quote from his official website.) I just remember a couple of movies i watched when i was so little, but since then he's been the most cool actor in my mind..The original ref photo I've used is the less known, unused cut from the Roy Schatt's Torn Sweater series. the size is 11inx14in using the mechanical pencils on vellum finished paper.. thanks!

Such a beautiful drawing! Love it. If I may ask, what type/brand of mechanical pencils do you use to get the dark values?
