There's not much to say about this one. It's Tom Hiddleston again, already my fifth drawing/painting of him. My Hiddles folder is growing *yay*. And I like most of it, especially the face. Now that it's all done and dry though I realize I should have invested one more minute to conceal those two dark lines by his right shoulder and on the jacket, but it's already signed and it feels finished, so I'm just gonna leave it this way.
Oh, right, one more thing: The painting is not quite this dark but I'm sure you all have problems with your scanners... Stupid things! So, as you can imagine, it looks much better in real life.
Time: only 2 hours (true story!) Size: approx. 10 x 13 cm / 3.94 x 5.12 inches Materials: Acuarela paper from Oxford, 240g/m2 Black ink from Pelikan Thin paint brush HB mechanical pencil for underlying sketch Reference picture (don't know who took it, I just found it on tumblr) Title: "I stand alone" is a strophe from Kathy's Song by Simon and Garfunkel (btw, he DOESN'T stand alone, he has a whole army behind him. Right, fellow Hiddlestoners? )
ive used black markers(blick) from time to time but i havent really gone deep into the colour/palettes! markers arent half bad they bleed thru paper some times but its not half bad!! but you would prob have to invest time and investigate as there are different types

Yeah, the problem is not spend little time on a drawing... the problem is whether we like it or not In two hours, maybe less, I would only be able to come up with a sketch The only drawings I spend less time doing are the minimal drawings and even those I usually spend an entire day on them
*yells from behind Tom* YES, ARMY OF HIDDLESTONERS HERE!!
Two hours?! Wow, that must be a first for you. Well done! I must admit, that at first glance I thought it was whatshisname ... a young Ralph Fiennes? Or maybe not, I'm not good with names. I KNOW who I mean, but can't put my finger on it. ANYWAY I think it's the hair. But it disappeared when I watched it bigger. Oh Hiddles, your jawline and cheekbones are not of this world.
And you! Yes, you, Francilla ... You never stop to amaze me. It's true, you don't. And you make such a thing like this in INK, in TWO HOURS! I better step up my game, really, if I'm ever gonna learn to get even CLOSE to you. I mean, come on. INK!? Ink.
Well hello there, other half of the Hiddleston Army .
Thanks for your lovely comment, I'm happy to hear you like this piece. And now that you mention it, I DO see the resemblance with Ralph Fiennes (you mean the guy who played Lord Voldemort and the "crazy" dude in The Red Dragon, right? Yeah, that's Ralph Fiennes). ... great, now I ONLY see Ralph Fiennes...
And just so you know; "stepping up my game to get close to you" is what I'VE been doing this whole time. Need I really remind you of that awesome ink painting of Jared you did a while back?! There you go. I rest my case.
... dog? What dog? What have I missed? But yeah ... our army will rule everyone else's, for sure. Because if we find someone worthwile in ANOTHER army, we'll just make them come over to the dark side ... err, I mean, our side.
The dog that barked "BATMAAAAAAN" . Remember? This one [link] . Yeah, he's on our team, too.
So, who's actually IN our army? There's Hiddles (or course ), Neil Patrick Harris, The Batman-Dog, ... uhm ... wait, who ELSE was there? I can't remember, but I'm sure there were more than just those three! OH OH, and having Hugh Jackman (-> [link] <- !!!) probably wouldn't hurt, either.
Oh yeah, the Batman-dog! Okay, so we have the dog, Hiddles, NPH, Hugh Jackman, the owl person in the Iron video (I've added that one, see email) ... I'm pretty sure we had some badass people there as well ... not that those aren't badass enough but ... I'm sure we had a villain or two. Who did we forget?
... I didn't get an e-mail. Did you get a failure notice?
Yeah, I'm also sure we had more badasses on our side, but I can't remember who. Jared Leto? DAMN, I really can't remember! Can it BE that we don't have more people in our army??? I've been looking through some comments of ours but I couldn't find any more clues... Damndamndamn, I hate when I can't remember important stuff like this. Any luck on your side?
