Graphite Pencils and marker (and "my touch of blue in the eyes ;)))

I think this is one of your finest portraits of Richard Armitage, Joane.  You have captured his intent and troubled look, upon learning that Margaret is leaving Milton and going to London.   He realizes he might never see her again.  But, to pick one of your Richard Armitage portraits that I like best, above all of the others, would be hard to do.  All of them are so good!  :iconlovelyplz:

Why...why haven't I seen this before now?...s-such perfection...you are truly a master! I simply ADORE how the only colour you used was the keenest-winter-blue for his amazing eyes *starts drooling uncontrollably* Your use of light and dark space is excellent, and you capture the moment beautifully. Amazing work, well done! Faved!

tout a fait d'accord, je ne vois pas comment il pourrait être mieux représenté ce personnage ! c sans doute parceque ses parents s'appellent John et Margaret ! lol

lol Sérieux ?? Quelle drôle de coïncidence !! C'était couru d'avance, ça ne pouvait être que lui, le meilleur choix pour interpréter le personnage ! (On est pas trop influencé par le charme Armitagien, pas du tout ! lol)

Tu m'étonnes, en fait il est né pour jouer ce rôle !! Non pas que pour ça quand même, ça serait dommage ;)
J'imagine son étonnement lorsqu'il a lu le script et le livre !
