House MD by FallingDark House MD by FallingDark
Gergory House was one of my favorite characters on TV, and it was because of this that I decided to draw him. This one was a lot of fun to draw.

Mechanical pencil on Strathmore paper, kneaded eraser, Q-tips. Surprisingly, this took only about 20 hours.

An excellent portrait of Hugh Laurie as Dr. Gregory House. Hugh plays his irascible character so well, there are times you would like to punch him. :iconkimberely:

HUGH LAURIE! The guy can't seem to develop a bad angle. It's practically impossible. The tiny details on the thermometer are a nice touch( if it was me I usually drop that sort of stuff....lazy, lazy me...). And yup, House is a world class ass, and that's precisely why we love him.

Pretty much! He acts, he sings, he plays the piano--there's nothing Laurie can't do.

Hah, I would have thought the same thing a few years back...but the only real reason I've improved my drawings over the past few years was patience. But you, lazy?! Looking at your drawing, I can say with absolute certainty that you do not have a problem with laziness. You certainly draw better clothes than I can. Did you use a reference photo for it?

Awww thanks! Yup, I used used a pic of me sitting on the back porch as reference for the clothing. I wasn't dressed like Clove though teehee. Now if I can just do a Hugh Laurie and draw everything out of thin air lol!

How long did it work on it? Because getting the proportions right (which you definitely did) takes me a while.

It ate up a lot of time plus a bit of dinner, that's all I can say haha.^.^ Mostly I kept getting her knife hand wrong( my knife hand^.^). You don't see all the smudges from erasing because of the Photoshop cleanup but there were tons of that. So maybe I'm not lazy with that some things but I am with others.

Hands are difficult, probably more so than faces. But yeah, you did a good job. :)

You said it! Hands are just...tough work. Especially when they're holding things.

Anime can be much more complicated than realism--there's a reason places like Studio Ghibli are so critically acclaimed. :D

If you want to do realism, there's only one rule: draw what you see. You need to be able to escape the idea that every face, eye, or nose has a rule for drawing. You need to realize that true realism has no formula. You want to learn realism, you need to go back to square one.
