Commander sir Samuel Vimes by CinTheBarbarian Commander sir Samuel Vimes by CinTheBarbarian
Finished the 22nd February, 2014 |
 
Commander sir Samuel Vimes from Terry Pratchett's Discworld series (which I strongly recommend!)

Vimes is the Commander of the City Watch, the police force of the Discworld's largest city, Ankh-Morpork.
He's been my favorite character of this series since I read the book Guards! Guards! years ago.

Definitely one of my favorites too!  Aside from Rob Anybody Feegle, and Adorabell Dearheart, and Moist Von Lipwig, and Rincewind...
Have you read Raising Steam?

Oh, not yet! It's been published in my country a few days ago.
And I haven't read Going Postal either, because I haven't been able to find it in shops since it came out  :(

I would definitely recommend Going Postal, Making Money, Raising Steam, oh and Snuff (if you haven't read that one yet)

I did read Snuff, but I can't say I liked it. Well, it's not that I didn't like it, but I didn't enjoy it as much as the other Vimes-novels Crying

Not yet - though I wish to paint an artwork about the book Night Watch (which was one of my favorite books) but I'd also like to paint Captain Carrot and Detritus.Or the witches.  AHHHHH, I can't choose. I like them all so much.

A little bit, yes! You're right :la: Though I was thinking of Clint Eastwood while painting him!
Thank you!

Well then if I may say a thing (I've been studying Clint Eastwood's face for some time for the same reason)
I see how you took Clint's original features and turned them into more cartoonish style. If you'd make him thinner lips and maybe less sharp jawline, he'd look more Clint Eastwood alike than Castiel-ish (not like looking like an angel is anything bad 8D ) but the most Misha-like thing it's the nose, which is turned to down while Clint's nose is pointy with a little ball at the top look - newswalle.com/wp-content/uploa… .
Allllright I finished smartassing.

You're right indeed! Though I don't really worry about him looking a little Castiel-ish :la:
I might change the nose a little bit for next Vimes-related-stuff, but I really like how does the sharp jawline and fuller lips look on him. 

Well, so now we know what would happen if Clint Eastwood and Misha Collins had a baby.

Oh God I just imagined Clint Eastwood's and Misha's lovechild in Ankh-Morpork xD What a beautiful sight! 
When you'll be adding next Discworld stuff? ovo
