^^Not at all. Tell you the truth the technique you used to make George's eyes shine distracted me from looking at the whole portrait ahdn_george_01. After another look I think the perspective looks just right including the shadowing. a-hard-days-night-george-9

Hehe, yes, that was rather good, wasn't it? a-hard-days-night-george-4 I paid special attention to his gorgeous peepers (at risk of ignoring the resta-hard-days-night-paul-4) so it's fitting. a-hard-days-night-george-9 

And as long as you don't compare it to the reference photo, it looks great a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Yayyyyyy Paul! beatlemaniacs_02_gif

This is part one of yet another draw-off between the esteemed @Mademoiselle Kitty >^..^< and I. Hers will be along sooner or later (probably later). 

I do believe this is one of my best efforts... though it was even better before I got a smut on his cheek a-hard-days-night-paul-3 I tried to fix it but it left a smudge. Oh well. (RP) Sideways no more!

 Ooooh, he's gorgeous, @Beatlebug heart I'd say it's one of your best. Your lines are getting much softer. Very well done!

Mine will be later, I fear. It's been too dark to draw today. I'll do it as soon as the daylight is sufficient.

I do concur ahdn_george_06 

What surprised me was that I as able to finish it in such a short time. Usually I tweak it for days, but this one was complete in under an hour. I'm improving every day! 

And I've more... 

My grandparents gave me a book about George full of lovely photos (nothing new in the text, of course, but there were many pics I'd not seen), and when I saw this one, I just had to draw it: 

GeorgeHdrawing10.jpgImage Enlarger

And I started this one months ago but only just finished it (FI):

Edit: Damn, I drew him righty! What a stupid mistake! paul-mccartney-facepalm_gif *bangs head on wall* 

When I get back home I'll do proper scans. Sorry about the sidewaysness!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICHY!!! beatlemaniacs_02_gif 

This one came out pretty good, I think, despite the weird perspective (again; what is it with me and weird perspectives?) Unfortunately, when I cleaned up the background, a smudge *happened*, as smudges will. (RP)

Thanks SG for another splendid portrait! Your drawing of Ringo's smile made me smile a-hard-days-night-ringo-10ahdn_ringo_09. It doesn't feel like a Beatle's birthday is complete until you publish a new drawing apple01

It doesn't feel complete for me until my Silly little tradition has been performed, but it's heart-warming to know someone else think so too. a-hard-days-night-george-9

 @Starr Shine? didst say slightly un-grammatically

...Maybe thee could draweth the Beatles as faeries.

Whereupon I went, 

George_whuuuuuuut-2.jpgImage Enlarger

and then thought, Why the heck not? So I did... 

...and it actually worked quite a lot better than I expected. Paul is a sort of animal guardian type faery, John is a piper/puck-type elf, George I drew as a sort of tree-nymph, and Ringo is a faery who is responsible for spreading peacenluv. a-hard-days-night-george-9

 Awwww thanks! 

I shall probably do larger, more detailed drawings of them at some point-- I quite like the idea now. Thanks, SS?! paul-mccartney-thumb_gif

I'm back a-hard-days-night-george-9 <-- this smiley is smileying at my new smiley avatar a-hard-days-night-john-6 

Anyway, here's the original drawing (I cropped and changed the values for my avatar): 

GeorgeHDrawing11.jpgImage Enlarger

It makes me smiley ahdn_george_06 every time I see it -- though as usual I'm not quite happy with the perspective (after the third #@%ing day of redrawing it, I decided that, like George, 'I Don't Care Anymore'), it's the effect that counts. (RP)
