My hat goes off to you for getting this so intricately done! The details. The likeness. The realism. You've captured Carlyle himself and it just blows me away! Needless to say that this is my favourite Rumple/Mr. Gold piece and I praise all the hard work you've put into it. Bravo. Simply put, bravo.
I love how you do your works so, so, so very much! The way you use light, shade, and detail is beyond my mind's capacity XD Some of my favorite things about this piece [watch, it's going to be the whole thing for different reasons XD]: 1. The hair. It looks so amazingly real and the shine and way you did it is quite lovely. I could cry over all those amazing strands! I like the length too, I just wish I knew men's hairstyle names XP 2. The eyes are great and I love the nose, the lips and the stubble! Such an intense expression 3. The clothes: Those stripes, man! Dear god, those stripes! I love how you know your angles so well, how you know just the right way to bend or flex something, to make it pop. The tie is also really awesome too. What kind of pencils did you use? Do you have a specific shading tool?
4. The hands/cane/ring. The ring looks really neat and the hands are so awesome. I like the detail especially on the palm beneath and the cane has such lovely bends of light....
See, I told you I'd end up talking about it all XD I like the background too, a nice simple place, makes me think he's sitting by a fire in a grand dining room or library or something ^^
Thank you! <3 ...And I have to ask- did you get your name from SG1, by any chance? (sorry if it's an odd question, but it reminds me of the ep where Daniel is trying to help an alien find his lost love)
