Haven't finished a drawing in ages. Well then... ;D

Scene from "Strike Back" with my new favourite subject matter to portray. And by that I do not mean the scene itself, but the lovely Richard Armitage (who played Thorin in "The Hobbit" and Sir Guy in "Robin Hood"). Not long ago I became friends with someone who I now hold very dear. This is actually a gift drawing for her. She probably realizes it is her when she reads this :) I will send the original drawing to you soon, my dear Knight of the Round Pencil Table.


This was drawn on a postcard size (10x15cm) with mechanical pencils and a 5B regular pencil for the dark areas. I added colours in photoshop.
Approx 10 hours of work.

awesome work once again. I really dont know how you manage to create such detailed and clean images in such a small space? Truly amazing! Im beginning to think you are really only about 5 inchs tall yourself and these beautiful thumbnail images you create, are from your perspective, the size of an Advertizing Billboard!! lol

This is absolutely fantastic! Until I saw your name, I really did believe that this was a photo. Then I knew, because your work is always so fabulously spot-on :)
