Isn't he horrible? <3

He's a horrendously racist civil servant, for whom political correctness passed him by, fond of "thrashing the natives" and played a rather pivotal role in a character of mine's life. And one of dvorak's too. He is just ghastly, but insanely fun to draw. XD Don't worry, he will quite probably suffer later on.

Just a concept doodle of his character...

The story behind this one:

One day, a swarm of dragons crash into L'Arc de Triomphe.

This is the opening line of an epic tale about seven friends and I wrote on a 6 hour trip on a coach after spending the morning going up the fastest lift in Europe, and, the day previously, having sung in Notre Dame (<3 !!11!!!)

Anyway, this epic tale featured this french chap called Pierre. Therefore, in about 20 minutes on the Ferry going back to Blighty, I was obliged to draw him.

And here he is, in all his awesomeness.

(( Btw, his uniform? I dunno. It looks a bit napoleonic... a... bit. I guess. hardly. But Hey! ))

Augh these are so excellent- I especially love just how well you get across the man's sleazy, nasty personality in the first set of pictures.. He just oozes.. um.. characterfulness. And horribleness. I so envy your ability to draw people! Especially faces!

And your second drawing is very elegant and the uniform is so well done and detailed.

Oh and France sounds interesting, 6 hour coach journeys aside! At least it inspired some great art and stories and such!

I really like all the contours on Gerald's nose. It's got a character all of its own!

These are so cool. I could never draw a real looking person like that.

Oh man these are so full of excellence! Thorpe is suitably epic in his grossness, and Pierre looks darling.

Also: Pierre <3

@Graid: Thank you so much! It does not even compare with the amount of tone you use in your art though... With gerald, unfortunately, I showed this to a member of my family who immediately squeed "omfg, he is adorable". :roll: I'm so glad I got his um... his characterfulness across to you at any rate. XD An hah hah... I wouldn't say that story was great piece of literature, but thanks in any case. Pierre was certainly cute.

@Caiterhe: I do love the nose, I'm not gonna lie. 8) Thank you!

@Sireez: yessss you can old thing. Merely practice drawing from real life.. especially gross people. Because that is just fun.

@dvorak: YAY. <3 Pierre is a sweetie.

@may: Huzzah for hating fictional civil servants I say! Huzzah! :mrgreen: *presets Pierre* you may glomp him, if you wish.

I know, right? :D

Ah, you have meh blushin'. :oops: And the dragons? To be honest, it goes steadily downhill. Pierre goes off to hit 'em, a vortex of death appears, he is sucked into limbo, where he battles it out with the LIMBO KING. Who wears bright pink hot pants.

Perhaps not on quite a level as Shakespeare, but it has something, yes. XD

Pierre approves very much of your judgement, LP.
