Everyone was young and full of hope and ambition, even Eric. He lost his youth eventually, despite all of his proffessional effort to prevent this, and his ambition ended up turning into obsession.
oh my gawd! Eric, you were never this young! Tell me it isn't true!
It's hard to even imagine him young like this, let alone draw him XD but I wanted to give it a try.... it's good practice for me finally preparing to draw his wife :] they met when he was older than this though. But one has to start somewhere
Eh, that is really him? He looks so young, kind of handsome and a bit girlish. Now I imagine him fighting diseases that were spreading as an consequences of the first world war.
he used to be extremely handsome, yes... he always dressed in a careful immaculate way and this extreme cleanliness combined with blonde hair and handsome features did make him look somewhat androgynous. I think he lost all of that beauty with age. His eyes always had that eerie vacant look though. His father was a doctor during the second world war, so maybe he had a grandfather in the first?
