Earnest Scribbler - writer of the funniest joke in the world.

Better known as Michael Palin, or the third member of my six part* Monty Python Flying Series!
This piece was helped indefinately by having a great ref pic - lookie here.




Update 20/July/06 - This piece now sold for 100 Euro. Maybe there is some money to be made from this hobby after all.

Michael's my favorite Python out of the bunch. He's so freakin' adorable! Anyways, this is a great portrait of him, especially since the reference pic that was used is in itself an amazing photo of him.

You're portriats are amazing. I nearly fainted when I saw it.

But, i'm a bit confused by the title. Michael Palin isn't the one who played Ernest. Eric Idle was...

Woah thats marvelous!

Palin is one of my idols whose warmth and humanity you managed to capture brilliantly. I especially like the shoot of hair lopping over his forehead and the exquisite detail around his eyes. Well done :)

that's odd. it's a reverse of the actual reference photo. Did you do this. or was it a result of your picture taking somehow? regardless it is still really well done.
Reply
:iconyoggington:
Yoggington Featured By Owner Apr 17, 2006
Yeah, I swapped it around before I drew it, so that once I'm finished the set of six, the light in them all would be matching. At least that was the plan...

Superb drawing, I especially like the shadow on the neck. He's one of the funniest comedic actors ever. B xxx

Yoggington Featured By Owner Apr 3, 2006
Thanks. I like that neck myself, often I have trouble with necks, but this one just turned out so well, adds to the depth, y'know?

And if you like his comedy, maybe you should check out the club in my signature.

Thanks. That means a lot coming from such a skilled pencillian. I had a quick browse of your gallery, and I know it's an overused comment on here, but I coulda mistaken your drawings for photos.
