Guy of Gisborne

And again my scanner messed it up :( My original drawing looks much better than this.

Anyway, this is Richard Armitage playing Guy of Gisborne in the BBC show 'Robin Hood'. I watched the entire show at the beginning of the year and loved it immediately.
I've to say the reference I used wasn't the best one. First, it's hard to recognize Richard (if you say you wouldn't recognize him I could only agree). Second, it's not the typical Gisborne-look, not without his smile. But I loved the look of loneliness and sadness, so I decided to give it a try.
The white spots in his hair were actually limestone pieces, but I changed it to let it look like snow. I've also added several snowflakes.
If you're interested to see what changes I made, you can find the original photo here.

I've also used this drawing to make a hair tutorial, which can be found here.

Gorgeous. I think it's just the way that he's holding his head that might not make him immediately recognisable to some people.
You've captured his expression perfectly. CUDDLES FOR GISBOURNE!!! :fangirl:
