...Just very rapidly worked my way backwards through all of the fantastic work in your gallery like an internet stalker...

And I discover that not only can you do utterly amazing and incredibly atmospheric damned near photorealistic work (gah all of your Capaldi's!...And those Utopia pieces that somehow perfectly capture the disturbing tone of the show!) but you also did one of my all time favourite bits of Discworld art??? Gah! Ahem apologies!

(Also my terrible sleep deprived brain has now inextricably entangled Dugdale/Jamie MacDonald & Malcolm/12 in some terrible dystopian vision of politics conspiracies and Doctor Who...)

:happybounce: Thank you so much!

My Utopia pieces are so out of my usual style I wasn't sure they'd work at all. Glad you like them! :)

(Oh, I'm planning on drawing 12/Jamie at one point, because that crossover is priceless! :D)

Oh my gods, it's perfect! It looks exactly like a royal portrait would be done, too, especially with the addition of the Ankh key. I very rarely see detailed pictures of the Patrician like this one, so this is a first. Amazing job!

This is very good. The funny thing is, it reminds me of both Alan Rickman (the person Pratchett wanted to play Vetinari in The Color of Magic) and Jeremy Irons (the person who ended up playing Vetinari in The Color of Magic). I think you've captured the personality of the Patrician very well.

I have to say, last person I wanted my Vetinari to look like, was Irons =) As for Rickman, then he seems a bit heavier and grounded for Vetinari, if I make any sense. I imagine him to be sharp and a with a bit of an edge - hope it shows in my drawing))

Omigosh he's. so. hot! :faint: Those cheekbones, that nose, those lips! *fans self* You did a wonderful job. :D The only thing I find kind of incongruous is the background. The color and lighting are just right, but the scratches make it kind of grungy and modern, different than the classical mood of the pose and the column. Eh, just my two cents. ^^ Hail Vetinari! XD

I guess I wanted it to look a bit 'old' on the background, or just be palpable, you know, rather than smooth and vanishing into nowhere. =) Thanks for your thought, tho, I'll be more precise next time =D
