For AzizrianDaoXrak, because she suggested I watch North & South and I did and it was perfect!! :cries:

I love Richard, he's a wonderful actor and his scowl has no equal, but he has such a creepy smile. I mean, look at this: 4.bp.blogspot.com/-5Jxpz4AFqHI… What kind of pervert grin is that? And where is your cravat, man?! The impropriety!

Hurr. I worked on this for several days! I told myself that if I was going to do another digital portrait, it had to be better than this one I did of Ben Whishaw. It's better in that it is more realistic, but I'm still dissatisfied with this because somehow I feel I failed to give it my own twist. But I hope you boys and girls will enjoy it nonetheless :heart:

Tools: Photoshop 7.0 and Wacom Bamboo

Somehow the series feels christmassy to me (must be the snow up north), so I think my Christmas break will be the perfect time to watch it again :D

I think with John Thornton in your life every day is Christmas (or maybe all your Christmases at once, even). :D Winter is definitely perfect for this. I'm going to wait a bit myself, I like to build up the anticipation!

Wow this is incredible! You captured his expression so well! You did a wonderful job with the shadows too- I really notice that it isn't just a pool of black. The way you added in a window while not mudding up the portrait itself- is really good.  His eyes are.. .shockingly well done!

he is perfect in this BBC drama, 
and he is also perfect on your drawing here!
I want to create a some watercolour portrait of him from this series too,
but I fear I can't, because when I look at him there
I become a speechless, a moveless one%)
