Can I just say -
wow ;-;

I was absolutely blown away by the serenity visible in Anthony's face, his posture, especially with that impeccably realistic shading. The grayscale serenity, coupled with the bright red blood spatter on his face, is an accurate representation of this character with his clarity of mind but gruesome lifestyle.
This piece certainly does not need a background to be alive. The aforementioned expression and lively red in the blood are as brilliant focal points as any and don't need further elements to balance them, especially not with how you have combined them here.
Your graphite technique is astounding, as well as the crisp edge of the splattered blood.
Well done. Well done.

My heart sank to my stomach seeing this.
One of my most beloved films of all time, and this scene in particular being outstanding to me since I was a child.
I can't properly put into words how incredible this is. Bravo.

Excellent, chilling work. The Devil is in the details, and the red/white contrast makes Hannibal look even more terrifying.
T.T *no words, too good!*

Wow, that's an awesome piece of work!:clap: Using only one bright colour looks always very appealing to me and the watercolour red really fits well here. The graphite drawing looks very realistic, especially the folds in the clothes and Hannibal's expression is just as I remember it, somewhere between serenity and ecstasy.
I love it!:worship:

This is just brutal. Going to put in deskstop background, and probably will make a t-shirt out of it.

It's all about the cannibal.
This would be amazing on a t shirt! Do you think you could erase the gray part on the left?
