This Charming Man by luminatii This Charming Man by luminatii
What is there to say? I'm smitten,
and I can't believe it took so long.

Although; a wizard is never late -
he arrives precisely when he means to.


I will be
In the bar
With my head
On the bar
I am now
A central part
Of your mind's landscape
Whether you care
Or do not
Yeah, I've made up your mind


Now, who will dance with me?


///P.S. I did use a ref (photos) for this one.

Oh, he's beautiful! Fun fact: my dad is a Morrissey lookalike. Not, like, as a job. (He does something in racing. I don't know.) But he looks SO MUCH like him. And he is a charming man. When my mother first saw him (at a party. It was the 80s. I don't know.), she went over to her group of friends and went "I think I've just seen Morrissey! Morrissey's here!"

Anyway, this is a stunning bit of piturey and I'm thoroughly delighted with it... and the opportunity to share my close connections to a man who looks a lot like Morrissey.

I just read a book called "This Charming Man". That is very strange. Unless, of course, it was named after the same thing this was. I whic case, just coincidental. Regardless, I think this is great. I love the style. :)

The more I stare at it the more I love it. Your painting style reminds me of some kind of...wet blob of watercolor pigment that just happens to fall so naturally into the shape of the subject. Your color choices are perfect, too. <3 Amazing work.

Oh, I love your painting style, Ole. I'd love to see a tutorial sometime; it looks so fluid and watery. I'm not a huge Smiths fan, but I knew this was Morrissey. Well done!

This also gives me an idea. Maybe I should draw/paint a series of wizards but less known ones as opposed to the famous scientists, musicians and artists. You'll always be a wizard in my eyes, so perhaps I shall draw you. :heart:

HA! I was going to do exactly that; starting with Morrissey. Except, obviously not necessarily lesser-known.
What did you do, read my mind? lol ^.~

& Thank you! ^-^ The likelihood of me doing tutorials though.. eh. about 30%. =/ All I do is make brushes and mess around until I get where I want.

Yeah, I've been experimenting with painting myself. I've only just gotten into CG. I'm not terrific at it, but practice makes perfect, right? How long does it take, on average, for you to complete a painting like this?
