James Dean is gay?

I thought of James Dean when I though of the 50's. Im not particularly proud of this one, I think it came out a bit more modern gay man, then old school James Dean. Which is funny, because some people think he may have been gay. The picture below is the one I referenced it from.

Looks good, I think you captured that lonley sensitive look that JD always had.

This is a nice moody illustration. I'm not sure if I would guess it was James Dean without it being pointed out, but I do enjoy seeing interpretations and an artist puting their own details in to make the image their own.

When I did the Lucas image a couple weeks ago, I didn't really put too much personal touch into his face because it was a struggle just to get it to look right. I didn't get too crazy with expression or attitude, which I felt left it a little lacking in the end. I envy those that can caricature well.
