Joe Flanigan in Burbank by crysothemis Joe Flanigan in Burbank by crysothemis
Normally I draw characters rather than actors, but I had the good fortune to be able to meet Joe in person at a recent Stargate convention, and, well, this is my way of summing up the experience.

HB pencil, drawn looking at a reference photo by lilferret (on livejournal)

I think I've gotten better at getting a range of tone out of my pencil. Either that, or I finally got my scanner settings right, because I didn't have to adjust the contrast on this one.

Thank you! I haven't been drawing as much this year, but I still love SGA and my pencils.

It's a bummer that Joe had to cancel that one -- he also canceled on a con I went to last year. I hope he can make it to Germany sometime soon. He was really great to meet and listen to -- funny, thoughtful, and very charming.

Hello! I love this one,too! Thanks for drawing again!

Hope, I'll also meet Joe on a convention. Here in Germany was a Convention named "Battlestar Atlantia" (Con for Battlestar Galactica and Stargate Atlantis) and Joe was listed as guest, but unfortunately, he must cancel this one. What a pity!

I really love your drawings!

i'm so jealous!!! the only stargate conventions in my country are all the way in BC. a four hour plane ride away. lol.

i'm glad you got to meet him though, and as always I love, love, love your work.

How are you liking season 4?

Thanks! I'm sorry they don't do more Canadian conventions. After all, they do film in your country! But I guess it's up to Creation, not the studio.

I'm loving Season 4. Doppelganger is my favorite episode so far. Two Sheppards -- it was just tailor made for me. :D

Thanks! And I can't believe I finally met him, either. He was great -- friendly, charming, thoughtful, and funny. And, you know, easy on the eyes. ;)

This is amazingly well done. I dunno what it is but every time I see Joe Flanigan (as himself) he looks wary or closed off. I think it's something about his angles at which he faces the camera. body language and all.

Thanks! And yeah, he does have that sometimes, although I have to say that at this convention he was amazingly relaxed and open and charismatic.

If you haven't seen it, there's a bit of video from the con here: [link]

Thanks! And they really should. I know JF was just in Melbourne and N.Z. -- once he's made it to the opposite end of the globe, it shouldn't be so hard to hop across a continent. ;)

Indeed there should! I think there was one here late last year but I'd only read up on it just after it finished =(

Yum!that red shirt is apparently known as the "red shirt of Doom" among my LJ flist. -See it and die! :giggle:
Lovely natural likeness.:dance:

Hee! I did call it the Flannel Shirt of Doom in my con report.

*checks vital signs* Not dead yet! ;)

So glad you liked. I'm drawing a lot more quickly than I used to, and it's interesting to see how that affects the results. (In this case I was too lazy to sharpen my pencil, so the shading and hair are a bit impressionistic.)

This is really good. You can see he's thinking and almost SEE the words he's saying. Very realistic. Very beautiful.

Hey, thanks! The expression was what I loved about the photo I was using for reference, so I'm glad that came through. (There was just a pesky little problem of a microphone covering part of his mouth, so I had to do away with that. ;) )

Aw, thank you! I'm so glad you liked this one, and the others, too. I'd been neglecting my art recently, so it was nice to take pencil in hand again.
