Love Sucks by sazinator Love Sucks by sazinator
I am so pleased to finally be uploading this!
Hugh Laurie as House
Acrylic paint, many hours... couldn't say how many. No less than 20.
Done for my friend Steph for Christmas.

Got to the last 64 in this contest:

Edit:
Think i should say that it wouldn't fit in my scanner and so the colours of the photo are a little out.
But I kept his eyes bright :)

I've never critiqued fan art before, so here it goes.

I really love the overall idea as I have seen hundreds of drawings and paintings of this House guy. With the loly pop saying love sucks, you made it a more origional portrait than the others I've seen. ALso, I like that it is realistic, but not photo realism. I can see the paint strokes and everything which to me, makes it art and not copying a photo.

If there is a photo of him doing this pose, then I would have rated your origionality down but I've never seen it so that's what I love. You created something so common and made it more unique.

Now for the lolly pop! I love the color and how you painted it, plus his scrunched up face - it really adds to the play on words. I do think his blue eyes compete with the bright red color of the lolly pop though because they are too bright and seem to be at the same intensity.

Overall, nice job and I happen to like this fanart too :D

I looked at this and at first, I thought it was a photograph. It is so clear, and everything is absolutely perfect! Even look at it now, it is hard to wrap my head around the fact that this was drawn and colored. It is absolutely. Fantastic. My mind is blown by the awesomeness of this.

well done! looks just great and the contrast of b/w and the red lollypop is lovely. My only point of critism is regarding his eyes. They look very shiny, my be too shiny. But this is only my humble opinion.
