So I'm not really happy with his face in any of these. Christopher Lambert is surprisingly hard to draw, and I think I'm going to need to do some close up face sketches if I want to get him right. Just an experiment anyway. Scratchy shadowy inking with a pigma micron and messy digital coloring in Photoshop. I... really don't remember where I got the bg texture and my attempts to find it for proper credit are failing... but photo ref courtesy of :iconsyccas-stock:

After trying to draw Lambert myself, I know how you feel.

His face! It's weird! But he gives me hope, as a guy without a strong jawline.

Honestly, I never really cared how jawlines looked unless I was sketching them lol

this is cool! Highlander is one of my Fav movies and stories of all time...tho I do not really have much Highlander artwork to speak of, in my gallery...after seeing how good of a job you did with this, I may have to try my hand at Connor or Duncan Macleod! thanks for the inspiration! :)

I've felt the same way! I grew up with the movies, and the TV series, which was filmed a couple hours away from me, but it's taken me a long time to get around to doing art for it! I have more HL art in this gallery, including a big 'family' piece that includes Duncan. I mean to draw more of the MacLeods together.

Thanks! I've been working on other stuff but this isn't my only Connor art, and it won't be my last.

Kinky. I'm more of a Connor fan, but I may do art of the Macleods together, eventually.

XD I do like me some Queen. I think I fell in love with their stuff before I realized it was in Highlander.

There's one up on YT with a typo, and a lot of jokes in the comments following. Because Freddie Mercury is the Princess of the Universe.

HL2 gets ignored by most of the fans... that and 'The Source'. Those are moments in my life I will never get back...

Thanks! Not sure his face is quite right in any of them, but it was good practice.

Great job. :)

He's a real hero.

Thank you, I'm not sure why I never drew him before, since I grew up with the movies...

Well, you certainly have great taste. :)
