I just wanted to share a sketch I based on our dear Vidanric. I say "based on" because I tried to make it look like the picture of him I have in my head. But it never quite appears on paper in the same way. So I guess this is more an echo of his image... does that make sense?
Just thought I'd share them, since someone might enjoy looking at them. The scans aren't the greatest- it always loses something of the original!- but at least you can see some detail. I did the drawing in graphite and charcoal.
I also have the cropped version posted on my DeviantArt account, if you want to see a higher res version. Anyway, enjoy!

I know exactly what you mean, and it's worse for me because I just can't draw guys. :P

Very nice, I can see him in there. ^_~ Though his hair seems a bit invisible. You should draw more CD characters.

I would like to draw more of the CD characters in future- I've tried Mel a couple of times but I haven't been able to catch her on paper at all, yet... ;D

The hair didn't scan very well since I did it very lightly on the page. I might try doing another version of this sketch. (And generally more of Vidanric!)

Thanks so much, I'm really glad you like it!

Awesome! Though, having a predilection towards Tolkien's elves, and associating tall, blond men with Legolas, I envisioned him with longer hair... Haha!

Also- completely unrelated to CD (though I do agree with maivry above- you should definitely draw more characters if you get time), but the nude figure drawings on your Deviant account are ABSOLUTELY AMAZING, as is your superb use of the medium at hand!! :)!

Thank You! His hair is supposedly tied back in this pic... but I kind-of chickened out on doing long hair, I guess. I want to draw some more of Vidanric, but next time with his hair down.

Also another big thank you for looking at my Devart work- I'm glad you liked it! I really had fun doing those sketches. I find it a lot easier to draw from live models rather than try to create that image in my head. Although both ways have their advantages, of course.

And I definitely will do more of the CD characters! I just won't be around a scanner for a while... I'll post here when I finally do get things up, though. Cheers! ^_^
