George by lily-fox George by lily-fox
George Sands (from BBC's Being Human); worrywart, romantic, werewolf.

This turned out exactly the way it was in my head, which was sort of detached, but I regret that now because my feelings about George are anything but detached. I feel like he’s the heart of the show. He knows what he is, he doesn’t try to fight it. He makes it work for him, and he continues to live his life. His love for his friends is altruistic and unreserved. He’s a good one.

I miss george...and the show as a whole.

The way you did the circle behind him is really reminiscent of how saints and other religious figures were painted as having way back when, which kind of fits with his Character arc.

I have never heard of 'Being Human', nor did I know of its existence. Yet, I could EASILY recognise this person (after having watched one of the BBC-sherlock episodes) which just goes to show how amazingly spot on you get your drawings! Without knowing the reference, I knew who this guy was.
Just amazing; As always I am so completely in love with your style - the precise pencil-strokes with the photoshop-colours are fantastic. This... This is the kind of art I'd give my left hand to be able to possess!
These profile-drawings are just beyond fantastic!

Love it! I love how I knew who it was without seeing a name or description. Excellent work, lily-fox

I think it was some 3 episodes in that I had to admit I had developed a terrific crush on George. No idea why. Mitchell is by FAR the more attractive, sexy, hot one. But it didn't seem to matter.

Well, Mitchell is beautiful but a total codependent fuckup. I couldn't put up with his shenanigans for forty years. George, though, is kind, compassionate, generous, funny, romantic and brave, and those are not generally things Mitchell is unless one is talking about his immediate friends.
