Holy...this is absolutely stunning, such incredible details, everything’s textured perfectly. It's so realistic I feel like I could reach out and touch him! His hair is so pretty and soft, and his lips are gorgeous and his eyes hold such emotion, ahhh this is wonderful.

such a beautiful artwork - fantastic
librarian-of-hell Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2006  Hobbyist Writer
OMG :) I know I favorited it before, but I almost forgot what my favs were (I were busy like hell with leeching things recently), and I looked at your masterpiece again. Seems "Worth"-while, lol!
Imagechild Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2006   Photographer
the way his mouth seems almost about to say something (not his usual snark, something stirring and soft and sweet, for Rodney maybe)
the way his eyes kind of shine, in a way they never really do in life unless you pause the frantic action and look really closely.
the texture *GOD* the texture of the skin, the long lashes--the touchable hair.

You are my hero. the end n_n
crysothemis Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2006
Gosh, thanks. So glad you like this one. And that's exactly what I was attracted to in the reference screencap, that moment of emotion and vulnerability. Thank you for your kind and thoughtful comments!
Nano-Gater Featured By Owner Jul 18, 2006
Whoa. That is so good! You even have him feeling like Rodney! :D A lot of time I see good drawings of him around DA, but most of the time they don't have much emotion. I love how yours captures that ^^
crysothemis Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2006
Wow, thank you. I'm apparently drawn to emotional pics, because that's what I like to draw. Standard head-shot type portraits are too boring to spend that much time with. ;)

Mm nice. I've seen your stuff on livejournal, but never got round to commenting!
crysothemis Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2006
Belated thanks! Yeah, I discovered LJ before dA, and still usually post there first. But dA is cool, too. Thanks for commenting!

crysothemis Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2006
Thank you!

All of your drawings are so incredible amazing! :eyepopping: Keep it up! :wow:
crysothemis Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2006
Sorry to be answering so late, but thank you! I'm very flattered that you like them, and thanks for taking the time to comment. :D

Everything has texture...complete and perfect...
Great job!!!
:) I use b's an aweful lot!!
Great job!!
Artist question, what is an F pencil? I have B's, H's, HB's, etc etc...but F?? I have an F and I was wondering
crysothemis Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2006
This is a very late answer -- sorry! I somehow missed all of the comments to this drawing. But thank you again for your kind comment. And an F pencil is between HB and H. Not sure why, but maybe someone wanted an in-between semi-hard pencil and invented it after the hardness scale was already set.
horsebackrider15 Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2006
;) actually I'm a lot sorrier I commented in April and I am replying in September!! That's pretty bad, 5 months... It is? That's kinda what I assumed but I wasn't sure... Thanks soo much!! I still wondered!!
sueqmoo Featured By Owner Apr 11, 2006
Wow, all your drawings are sooooo realistic! You should draw that Scottish Doctor guy next (sorry, I forgot his name lol).
crysothemis Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2006
Belatedly answering to say thank you! And I did end up drawing Carson (that Scottish Doctor guy). He was fun, too.
KoukkuKapsis Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2006
wouw! that's amazing! You are really talented! I'm so speachless.
crysothemis Featured By Owner Jul 21, 2006
Okay, this is a really belated answer, but thank you! I'm really glad you liked this one.
