The Cavalry by Grace5150 The Cavalry by Grace5150
Ok, that's finally done. Took ages.

Tom Hiddleston as Cpt. Nicholls from War Horse.

I've found a growing passion for that era, I can't get enough. I also can't get enough Tom but I think there's a lot of people who understand that feeling...

painted in cs3 with tablet....no idea how many hours, more than it should have been. Used pic from the film for reference.

Loki was a captain? Huh. His powers might've come in handy.

aw I didn't think to do it for this one. But here's one for another Tom I did and it's basically the same process.
process for soaked by Grace5150

I don't have a detailed description but I don't use like a variety of brushes or anything. I just varied the opacity and paint in a tiny sort of swirling motion, using lighter opacity midtones to blend instead of the smudge tool.

Are there any pics of Captain Nicholls meeting Captain Steve Rogers from the United States? Not from the movie (obviously), but some bit of fan art somewhere?
