From PeaHopeless' story, If He Would Only Extend His Hand.

' "Did you really think you'd lost this? Didn't you realize how serious I was, that night on the platform? ... You weren't the only one who'd finally found the truth." '

Belongs as a set with An invitation and a request and "...For you."

Media: pastel pencils, Photoshop lighting effects

Hey Fugue, may I ask you something?
I remember wondering about your interpretation of V's gloves design. On this and many other pictures the gloves are not smooth on the shaft (or whatever it's called :blush:) but have those... grooves...
I actually thought that it was your artistic license... until I had that special edition DVD with the 4'' mask and cards in the post today.
Having taken a closer look at these cards I realized that V's gloves have these strange grooves on them too! O.o But I am quite certain they are smooth in the movie...
I am puzzled. Could you please help me out with some infos?

Certainly - I used screenshots from the film as a reference for V's gloves. In my version of the Tarot card "Judgement" ([link]), you can sort of see the details.

Oh, and congrats on getting the special edition! :D

Oh my you are so right!
But then, I am certain there are scenes where he wears plain gloves too.
Now I fully expect myself to tally the gloves (plain, grooved, unconclusive evidence) when I watch the movie next time O.o

This is so beautiful in its simplicity.

Two halves of the same whole, your artwork and Pea's fics. Now I'm done distracting myself from sleep by enjoying both of them, and leaving endless comments for you :P Thanks for putting up all these amazing pieces of art, I've found myself browsing them for the past few days when time runs short before work or other deadlines, and only now had an evening to sit and enjoy them properly and leave all these aforementioned comments!

What is it about hands that can describe so much in a mere gesture? Beautiful work, for sure.

Thank you so much! :-)

done with coal? Looks really smooth and the hands look so real :) I suck with drawing hands myself, so I always enjoy when I see well drawn hands ^ ^

Close - done with grey pastel pencils on black paper.

Hands and I aren't exactly "friends", but I'm (slowly) getting better at them. ;)
Jefrma Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2006
I should practise drawing hands more, am a bit lazy about that :blush: Gosh if you get just better with them from they look now.. :faint: Good luck to ya!

Oh you are so damn right.
That, right there, is what I've been aiming for with words, all this time.
Bingo, and bingo again.
