WOW, I love James Dean, and i love this, it has such emotion in his eyes and expression. He was a very emotional person and that makes it that much harder to make a good sketched portrait of him but you did it perfectly. Very Very good work.
Wow! Thank you Daniel. He is my idol. I probably know more about JD than JD himself. LOL!

Thank you so much Wendy! You’ve made my week.:)))
Congrats on your top 6 placement in My Movie Star Homage challenge. You have now been featured in Let’s Pay Homage !
Thank you so much Leigh! :))
great line work. And a perfect quote to accompany the portrait.(I’ve wrote down the quote in my journal cause I liked it that much). What Warhol said about Jim is exactly how I feel about John Lennon.
Thank you so much Pip. You obviously understand the impact of these two individuals on our collective psyches. Jimmy and John meant more to me than just your pedestrian pop idols. :))
Beautiful and damaged he was…. great work =)
He was and he still is my idol! :)
I could try for a million years and I wouldnt get anywhere near the likeness that you have achieved John. The ‘troubled youth’ look, the quiff of the hair, the shadows to bring out his facial features. Top notch – I must say !!
James Dean is my favorite actor . The assesment of Warhol on the matter is mistaken . Dean was great Rebel because he was an idealist, NOT because of any NONperfections .
this is FABULOUS
Looks great in a black frame. Thank you Shanghaiwu. :)
