Dylan Moran by Orlifan Dylan Moran by Orlifan
Okay - third attempt at uploading this...

So to sum up what I already spent quite a while writing...

:bulletred: its Dylan Moran if you have an aversion to reading the title of Deviations.

:bulletred: I traced the outlines of the reference picture because this is just a small practice piece - so no comments on getting the likeness right because I claim absolutely no praise for my tracing abilities. it was only to practice skin tones and hair and stoof.

:bulletred: this amazing tutorial helped me - [link]

Edit: Thanks to everyone who has favourited this piece but it really isn't the best in my gallery. I guess I just have to put it down to the popularity of Dylan Moran :XD:

Yeah, Bernard wins :) I must watch BB again some time! :D

Thanks!

Wow! What did you use to color this?? Well, I mean, more like shade or..whatever. This is: a) really great tracing, b) Really great shading, 3) really awesome.
(Ps- all things in your comments about Dylan Moran and DA are true!!!)

Orlifan Featured By Owner May 19, 2008
Haha! :D Thanks! :) I had to reread what I'd written about Dylan Moran and DA to get your comment - though I pretty much guessed that the Moran comments would be complimentary and the DA ones less so!

Photoshop 7 :) Its the only computer programme I've ever really got the hang of.

'You know what you are, you're a beard with an idiot hanging off it.'
I want a tablet thing, bloody pricy though.
He's got kind of a serial killer look to him, like when Billy Connolly played a thug.
Looks like he's talking to someone bound to a chair.
Great piece.

Heh heh! Oh no...I made Bernard look like a serial killer?! O_o mind you, the episode when he's trying to kill the cat....:D

Yeah, tablets are expensive but they're so worth it. Once you get one you'll wonder how you ever drew with a mouse. I love mine...except when I lose the pen and then I swear at it...otherwise we're best mates :D

[Manny]:"i mean...a REALLY..nice..box of pencils.."
[Bernard]:"No!! They'd have to be..MAGIC pencils! You draw a cow...and the cow comes to life!!"

A very, emotive drawing, instant fav for me, as fan of pencil drawings and dylan moran.
