Guess who finally bought herself a sexy sexy sexy Wacom Intuos4 large tablet? Yep, I did. This is how I broke it in.

I love Fran's character on Dollhouse loads, so thank you to Joss Whedon for creating Topher, and to Fran Kranz for bringing him to life, and to all the talented writers working on the show. I miss it.

Reference used. Specifically, a shot from 2x04: Belonging. Took about three evenings.

Clearly you're just not hanging out with the right people! Or not going a good enough job pushing these awesome shows on people. ;)

I love the computer uplighting in the reference and completed version. It's a perfect choice for a shot of Topher

I thought this was photo manipulation, or maybe just a photo. You blow my mind! Love your art, I think this is one of my favorites.
