James McAvoy - Finished by soapy-sock James McAvoy - Finished by soapy-sock
Finally finished!! Yay! =D

Going to see James in Penelope tonight, so I got a bit inspired and finished off the dreaded hair.

I originally chose to draw this reference picture soley because of the fantastic way it had caught his eyes, I hope i've done them some justice... :)

Amazing. I mean, I took a peek at all your drawings, and you're so good at capturing the face features. I look at each thumbnail and know who it is straight away. It's a rare ability. I have problems with it sometimes.
Gorgeous works!

Thank you for such a lovely comment!! :hug:

Your portrait of Elizabeth is exceptional!- your attention to detail and Cate's features are spot on :)

I've taken a look at your gallery too!, it's very interesting- a real mix of different media. I really like the animal photography and was surprised by the swans on the beach- for some reason i've never associated them with anything over than rivers... :D Can't wait to see what you do next :)

I wanna say this now, even if it's been said before; You are the first to really capture him when drawn by hand. Awesome job. I might go as far to say, you are the only one who has really captured him without actually using his actually picture to accomplish a piece of artwork.
