SHINee's Lee Taemin Fan Art by SassyAlex SHINee's Lee Taemin Fan Art by SassyAlex

Hello, everyone! Lots of uploads lately!

So, this is something I've been wanting to share with you guys forever now. I. . .am in love. . .with SHINee. They're the most amazing K-Pop band ever. I'm a total Taemint. And K-Dramas have officially become my fishy crackers. .___.

Now, don't get me wrong, HYDE from L'Arc~En~Ciel will always be my number one celebrity crush, for his diversified style, lyrics, honey voice, and, of course, for getting me into J-Rock in the first place. However, SHINee's Lee Taemin is running on a close second. I am steadily becoming a Shawol. o_o!

I've been wanting to draw this picture forever, since even before Alice's commission, but I was unable to. I needed to finish other requests, or I didn't have time, et cetera, et cetera. But, man. Taemin sitting there for so long in my WIP folder made me want to cry.

So, last night, I couldn't get to sleep, and I needed to draw. I had all of my other things on my to-do list done, so what better than to finish Taemin? Because now I have a few requests coming in, and will need to start on those; it'd be awhile before I got another chance to draw him, so I am SO relieved I got it done. -nodnod-

While drawing this, I listened to his song "U" from the soundtrack from the K-Drama, "To The Beautiful You." I want to watch that show to see if Minho can act, but methinks I should read the original Japanese Manga first. o w o

ANYWAYS! I was surprised to find that drawing his skin and shirt didn't take me long at all. However, I totally underestimated dat Sherlock hair. Not that I'm complaining—I love him with extensions. But it did take me quite awhile longer to fill in than what I had first anticipated.
o . o!

View the process of this picture, here:
Here is the picture I used for a reference, which I just made black and white. It's funny, I didn't even realize Onew in the background when I first saved this picture all those weeks ago. Sorry, MVP's. Molhaedo Onew Sangtae.

Any-who, here is my first SHINee fan art. I feel very satisfied at this time. -wipes tears- It's been a good run! < 3 I am, however, sorry to say that my scanner really betrayed me on this one. -sigh- Still! I'm happy to share it with you guys, even though the quality is terrible~

On this piece, I used a mechanical, HB and 2B pencils, a colourless Prismacolor blending pencil, two Copic sketch markers, Q-tips (for blending) and watercolour paints.

Ahh, I'm not where I want to be with realism, not even close. Even so, I just had to draw him. Good googily moogily. (ノ´◕ ◡ ◕`)ノ

I'll keep working on it. . .slowly.

Thank you for your comment, as always, Zaloff!

Yeah, same here, I like to draw realistically but even when I try, I can't make it photo-realistic! But you're way better at making your drawings photo-realistic then me!

You're welcome!
