Warning: Contains Farscape Fan Art  
This evening I was able to enjoy a few hours of unexpected spare time, because the horse I am riding had an appointment with the blacksmith. Somehow I felt like drawing... *g*

I apologize if the sketch is a bit sloppy but I'm not exactly a genius when it comes to pencil.

From someone who can't draw to save her life: wow. Definitely later-seasons Crichton, though, since there is the sense of haunting in the expression...

Thanks. I'm glad you liked it :-)

You are definitely right about the haunted expression. However, I'm still wondering how it got there, since the screencap from Human Reaction that I used as a model showed a rather soft and vulnerable looking 1st season John.

I love your style. Whenever I look at it I have a feeling of nostalgia and I think of Leonardo da Vinci. Dunno why, maybe it's just your very own way of sketching, the "rough details" and the colours you chose (the soft brown here, for example).

Well, if only my works were worth half as much as Da Vinci's... *g*

The "roughness" is mostly due to accentuating some of the already existing lines with a rather soft graphite pencil (6B). Have you ever experimented with sepia mines and/or charcoal? Because if you like different, subtle shades of brown that is cleary the way to go.

Oh, and btw.: I'm still smiling all over my face. It's so great to see that you've got an LJ :-)

*LOL* The damn thing about good artists is... they mostly become rich after they have died. -.-

No, I never did. I'm one of those silly "just use the basic stuff"-artists. *g* But I guess I should try sepia mines. *adds them to her shopping list*

We've got something in common then... no, two things, actually. The "big smile" and the thought of how great it is that each of us has a LJ. *shakes hands with Bimo* ;)

long have I pondered whether to write this ... ;-), but no, it needs to be said publicly for once:

I apologize if the sketch is a bit sloppy but I'm not exactly a genius when it comes to pencil.

Will you please STOP (!) apologizing in advance for every piece of art you create. Your.works.are.good. ! ;-)
