Guns and Horses: Australia by theresebees Guns and Horses: Australia by theresebees
After many months I finally lifted my ass and finished this. And I'll never be drawing plaid shirts again :crazy: I hope it is a nice tribute to the greatness that is Australia. It's just epic, a really "old fashioned" romantic hollywood movie with fantastic scenery and some great action. And of course, Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman are hilarious together:)

:heart:

I would forget where each of the lines of his shirt have to go and then it would become a big mess.^^ You managed really good, his shirt looks awesome, I mean the whole thing looks awesome. There are so many details. The hat looks great and their expressions are great too.
Actually the only thing I don't really like is her shirt which looks a little bit like you just wanted to finish the drawing and didn't really care about it. Sorry, if this sounds mean, it isn't intended because I love this drawing! Awesome job!!

Thank you! Of course it's not mean, and I can see what you mean, though I drew the shirt even before the plaid shirt:) But it's always hard to draw white clothes and I did kind of lack interest in it :( Shame on me:D The scanner also has a part in it though:) I'll try and improve it soon! :)

this is brilliant! how do you capture the likeness, did you go to courses and so on?
i love portraits but i find them so difficult to capture

you really did a great job and captured the personality of the characters

well done

Thank you very much! It was indeed very complicated, up to moments where I was drawing a line and ended up not knowing where it was supposed to go:) Especially when drawing the shirt, so I'm really glad you think it looks great! :heart:

Thank you!:) Do you know any great Boromir-Faramir pictures? I've found one, but maybe there are better ones. Btw, I'm already drawing something from Lotr, for a contest, it's an epic scene with an even more epic speech from the last movie:)
