Restless House by shoomlah Restless House by shoomlah
Second half of the assignment for Character Creation where we had to illustrate positive and negative aspects of our personality. This was going to be "procrastination" when I first started drawing it, but it then slowly evolved into "restless" and began to further resemble Gregory House... Well, that, or my friend Kai in 20 harsh years. So yes- not meant to be House, but I can't deny the vague resemblance. :)

Pretty nice art. And spectacular transder of character attitudes into symbols. But why do you see yourself as male? Just curious :)

Because its a character design based on aspects of our personality, not a self-portrait- I don't "see" myself as male, just drew a male character.

Ok then I'm sorry. Didn't want to affront you. Obviously I just misunderstood the topic.

Such an awesome character focus. I really love the colour scheme you picked and that completely nonplussed expression. He is begging you to tell him that tomorrow's deadline was pushed back a week and he can now sleep.

Now I'm curious as to what the other "side" of the personification is like. :nod:

House is a rather addictive show (if you'll excuse the expression) And my newest obsession. This does resemble him, if he were younger. :) No less attractive.

I really like the sculptural shading quality here. Really good choice of colours as well! I like the fact that the colour temperatures are nicely balanced and that really brings the face to life!

And you managed to stylize the whole picture but just enough to carry your brushstrokes across! A really solid picture!
