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!

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.

I don't watch the show (although apparently I should, it sounds good!) but I recognize his face. It never fails to amaze me how well you capture people's faces!! Beautiful!!

The show is pretty amazing, I recommend it! And you may recognize Russell Tovey (I did) from being in the Hound of the Baskervilles episode of Sherlock.

One wants to have rough, filthy sex with Mitchell (and then maybe pat his poor troubled head), but one wants to build a lasting relationship with George. He is total husband material. Also, rough filthy sex.

It's what every lady wants really . . . undying affection, followed by buggering that sends your brains leaking from your ears. . . .

Seemingly fragile, but in reality so strong. Gosh.

Man, he grew on me, big time. He's so kind of dorky, and then you see how cool he is, how fierce and brave. I mean, not to mention, he's got one of the world's finest butts.

Annie is more like a hapless cupid, I think. Or maybe she just has poor materials :p She's to meddlesome for a saint ;)

I think the expression works well for George towards the end of the series. Early George would look more panicked.
Is there going to be Annie next? I love her so much! But I also love Nina, got to love a feisty petite woman, goddamn I just love everyone in the show.

I definitely want to try Annie next. I feel for her so much. She just wants everyone to be happy, god damn it. I love that she's dressed in gray (my favorite color), because I feel like gray is a supportive color that elevates the colors around it. It's comforting. That's Annie.

I will probably repeat all this in the comments of my Annie drawing. :D
