The Most Loyal Servant by whimsycatcher The Most Loyal Servant by whimsycatcher
Another portrait of Merlin! I'm running out of titles, haha... I wonder if Iíll ever tire of drawing his faceÖ Gosh, if Colin Morgan knew just how much time Iíve spent studying his features! >_> Anyway, this is graphite on Moleskine (watercolour paper). Editing and texture application in Photoshop. Thank you for looking! ^_^

Beautiful shading! The focus of the eye is also really good.

The crosshatch looks absolutely smooth and I just don't even know how you managed that magic. :D

Love his eyes- thoughtful, determined, but as if preparing for a grim reality. Young, but his eyes speaks of life a thousand times lived.

Thank you! Nope, this is a portrait of Colin Morgan who plays a youthful version of Merlin in a TV series. I'm quite a fan, so I draw him A LOT! ^^

Oh dear, that profile will be the death of me. I think I love his eyes the most. Somehow, you got them just right, just perfectly Merlin. Thoughtful, focused, sure. Much love!

Oh damn. I don't even watch the show - always mean to, and then forget, and since it's done the best chance I've got is something like Netflix - but this is a wonderful profile study. Nice work!

And there is that wonderful cross hatching style again!

Great, again. This really is wonderful. The cloth looks so very real, and the shading of his face? Yes. Very, very good.

Keep up the good work! ^^
