"My malpractice insurance doesn't cover alien autopsies." - Whatever It Takes


None other than everyone's favourite psychopath -- I mean, doctor -- Greg House, as played by Hugh Laurie.
He looks very content. Cuddy must have given him the week off of clinic duty.

Titled for the benefit of House fans all around the world, including myself, who will be going through detox during a very House-less writer's strike. :noes:

So anyway, let's showcase my stupidity by replaying the events preceeding my choice to draw this. "Hmm, well, I only have a few days, so, let's choose this ref because it's easy-looking and shouldn't take long." Hah. Nothing about this was easy. D: Nor was it short. And now my head hurts from staring at a screen all day.

But I'm super proud. <3

Comments and crit and faves are all loved and dearly appreciated.

+GIMP and computer mouse
+16 hrs approx.
+Ref used from Hugh-Laurie.net

Oh my goodness how can you be so talented AND have great taste. I bet you're pretty too *throws water balloon* x3 But anyways holy crap it looks JUST like him! I feel like I should have a couple wrong diagnoses right now and nearly die just while looking at the picture! The wrinkles are all perfectly placed and the hair is phenomenal! The mustache/beard thing is so realistic that somehow, the way it overlaps the lips, makes it look EXACTLY like a picture! You did an amazing job! :heart:

Oh, me too, hey. They need fewer characters. This last season was kind of the lost season, you know? They lost the original spirit of House, even though it was wayyyy funnier than some of the previous seasons. I miss mai HousexCam moments though. -coughcough-

I thought those last two episodes though were just freaking amazing.
