My Summer Art

I recently participated in the spn_summer_art  challenge and had a great time coming up with my entry. Check out the Summer Art Challenge if you haven’t already. There were many wonderful artworks from a whole bunch of very talented SPN artists!

Early on I had seen the banners for the challenge and considered participating, but what clinched it was finding the perfect reference for a summer based theme.

The male figure already looked enough like Sam from the back, I just had to make his hair darker and longer. For Dean I flipped the image and used the reference for his body, making it a bit less muscular. Then I looked around for pictures of the back of Dean’s head to help me get a likeness for him. That was tougher, but I did find a few, mostly screen shots like this one.

Of course it was fuzzy and the top of his head was cut off, but it helped.

The only other thing I changed in the general line drawing was to tone down the lens distortion which is pretty noticeable in the reference image.
