Downton Abbey: Death and the Hanged Man by DoctorCritical Downton Abbey: Death and the Hanged Man by DoctorCritical

Fanart of the amazing show Downton Abbey, featuring my two favourite characters, Bates (left) and Thomas (right). Bates is such an awesome, adorable person, and he's just so lovable and charming and good-natured... Thomas is a manipulative, bitchy, cowardly bastard-face, but he's really really really sexy and I love his character, so there. He's my villain of choice, because I have to have at least one and I don't like the other villains. x3

Thomas has got a wine bottle because where I am in the show right now, there was this part where Bates came across Thomas in the hall of the servant's quarters...Thomas had this wine bottle behind his back and he got all tensed up, and I seriously thought he was just going to smash it right round into Bates's adorable teddy bear face and end him right then and there. But then it didn't happen, and I felt both relief and disappointment. Because I'm cruel to my favourite characters. <3

In the beginning of the drawing process, Bates's skin colour was a lot more Bates-y and less Thomas-y, but after the overlays and treatments he ended up looking pretty pale...just so y'all know not to point it out, because I already know. Bahaha

If you happen to watch this show, PLEASE DON'T SPOIL ANYTHING IN THE COMMENTS OR I'LL GET REALLY MAD. Seriously, just Googling reference images for Thomas and Bates gave me enough spoilers, I don't need y'all flapping your maws and giving away anything else. xD

Bates, Thomas (c) PBS (I suppose)

He sure does xD We have him over for dinner quite a bit. I've moved to uni now so I'm not there anymore, but he was always really sweet. I was interested in acting and he gave me a tonne of great advice :)

Yes, I remember that scene. I always hated Thomas but at the same time pitied him. Very nice job! Awesome show too!

I really don't like her either, especially after the whole William thing... She's kind of wishy washy to me. :/ I also really love Thomas. He's one of my favourites. <3

I love Thomas, even if he is a butthole sometimes. He's an adorable butthole <3 The episode with the blind soldier guy made me cry some serious man tears
