Small colour works - "The People"

Postby Col.Despard » Thu Sep 24, 2009 10:32 pm

A smaller painting. I'm still working on trying to instill a fraction of the intensity I see in Enjolras into his gaze - consider this a study.

Used watercolour stock paper for this - a mistake.

I could stare into his eyes all day. :D He's so beautiful.

(Also: blond lashes! *swoon*)
and to this day, she's glided on
always home but so far away
like a word misplaced
nothing said, what a waste

Aww, beautiful. And those eyes do have an intensity about them which is either scary or beautiful depending on how you look at it.

*falls over* Buh buh buh...

Those eyes...I'm not much of an Enjolras fan but I'm considering converting. :D So very pretty. Col. D, you have an immense gift with watercolors (I still can't get the silly things to do what I want). Seriously--those eyes made me flinch slightly (so intense!) and I keep scrolling down to look at 'em. *does so again*

Bramblefox, she's done the same thing to me.

These pictures, Despard. You're doing such a wonderful job of pointing out his awesome moments. And this is just beautiful. I love how intense the yellow is for some reason. It really contrasts with his eyes and makes him look so intense.

You guys know I'm always thrilled by your comments, right? I'd be scribbling even if no one ever saw it but me, but to be able to share it and have other people say they like it is just bliss.

Loony, I think there are so many visual moment connected with Enjolras that I'm not likely to run out of canon to illustrate any time soon.

And then there's the fanon to work on...

Holy shit, talk about intense! It gave me a little jolt when I looked into his eyes.

Also, his hands look lovely!

Yay! We're back!

Here's my experimental contribution (already seen on my LJ and over at DevArt) - long-haired and sporting a healthy tan, but with dark shadows around his eyes, Enjolras has evidently been burning the midnight oil:

I can hardly put into words how amazed I am by these fantastic drawings of you! They're incredibly beautiful and you are so gifted. Looking at these awsome drawings I kind of feel the urge of commissioning an Éponine portrait. :mrgreen:

Well you already know that I love it, but I'll say it again.

I love it. I want to pet his hair and oh god his nose is gorgeous, and his eyes (even if he does look like he's had a late night).

Preeeettty. I like Enjolrati with hair. ;)

So does Hugo :)

It's so delightfully, canonically glowy.

Ooooh, pretty. Makes me want to run my fingers through his hair.

Hot damn he's pretty! Well done Despard!

Oddly enough my first reaction was that I wanted to kiss him. :oops:

Hahaha! I think, then, that Despard has succeeded in depicting Enjolras. :D I absolutely love this one (the highlights in the hair! his blond eyebrows! the perfect shade of blue for his eyes! I'm moved to punctuation abuse!). Kudos on a fantastic job. <3
