Behold! *tries to think of something else to say* Lucius Malfoy--- again! This time I tried really hard to make him look like Jason Isaacs, & though I got closer this time, I'm still not quite there. *sigh* I just can't seem to draw him handsome AND mean. I think the main problem in this pic would be his eyes. They're too... pretty? Melting? Innocent? Ack, who cares, I love 'em!! This is my best pic ever! This is dedicated to Donna Bond & Donna Evans. Look and drool, gals. ;) ;) ;)

Yeah, the eyes are too compassionate. They need to be cruel or arrogant or something. Maybe if he was tipping his head up arrogantly and his eyes had a prideful look to them........by having those little lines underneath that comes from a fold of flesh. I've got a pic of him looking arroant where the eyes are like I describe, if you're interested.

2 Ria Jae Bond replies: "Thanx for the advice! I DID try originally to tilt his head up arrogantly, as you say, but my perspective.... *sob* It stinks! *bonks head against wall* As for your offer of help, Thanx very much, but *sigh* e-mail problems prevent me from taking you up on your generous offer. Thx anyhow!!2"

This is amazing. [insert synonyms of "amazing" here]

It really, honestly, is very good. Congratulations. I personally think of him as that snake... Oh! Lucius, besides being a synonym for the devil (Lucifer), was a cold, calculating Roman emperor who's last name (literally, last name, because I think there were four, go look it up) was Severus (squee!) had spy-ish tendencies (unsure, though) and fought in a war with Albinus. Seriously. Or maybe it was against Albinus...?

1 Ria Jae Bond replies: "THANK YOU!! I prolly will never get this close a resemblance to anthing again, but I am very proud of this! *looks closer at your comment* Oh, you're one of the Snape-fangirls! I'm not, but hey, anything HP rules! Hmm... fascinating. *quirks Spock-ish eyebrow* While I did know that both "Lucius" and "Severus" were Roman names, I didn't know that there was an emperor with BOTH names! Did you know that Draco was also the name of a particularly cruel roman emperor, too? GO COOL HP NAMES!! Thanx again for you very encouraging AND educational comment!! 12 12 12"

I think the eyes look calculating, which I think is fitting. o,o Well, anyway... You really did capture a good likeness of him in this one! (heh, he's gorgeous!) His face is so great! You really captured in this one what you didn't quite in the others, and in that you succeeded so well! Congrats! This one is especially fantastic! *much congratulatory hugs* 1

1 Ria Jae Bond replies: "THANK YOU!! Coming from you, this means a huge amount to me! Truth is, I sometimes look at your art to help me get thru a problem I'm having. D'you really think his eyes look OK? I think they look very sexy, but... *sigh* Mean and Macho. The two things I canNOT draw on a man. Any how, thanx a million for your Encouragement! *hugs you back*"

Dedicated to me?
My goodness, I'm speechless!

I guess I could make some kind of informative and useful comment now, eh? The overall look and feel of the pice is marvelous, and I can see that you are trying really hard. I do love that chin and the nose especially!

I can see that you have a great passion for him as I do, and believe me, that passion will take you far! I kid you not!

Keep up the great work! I am expecting great things from you! Indeed!

12 Ria Jae Bond replies: "Thanx SO much for your comment!!! I did indeed try hard on this, & I'm glad it shows! Passion? Dude. When you speak my name in connection with HIS *points*, you speak of passion that makes Romeo & Juliet look like just a weekend fling!! 12 12 12 I shall endeavor to live up to your expectations of me. *bows* lol!! Tankies again!!"

When you look at something (or someone) you really love, your pupils go wide, just like his. This is a handsome portrait and yes, he looks kind. You have done a careful work around the mouth area, looks realistic.
I know it is a horrible nightmare trying to make a person you admire to look like him(or her)self, but may I give you a tip I have found useful? All right, most probably the person you are drawing is cute/ handsome/ killer good looking, but try to forget that when you are using he as a reference: open your eyes and see all the wrinkles, all the strange lumps and moles, the things that makes him who he is, and - this one is the hardest - draw them all. After that, you may see the actual resemblance more clearly than ever.

7 Ria Jae Bond replies: "Thank you very much for the great tip! Yeah, my brother (who's much more artistically knowledgeable than I) says something the same, but I didn't take his advice very seriously coz since when does J. Lo. have wrinkles & lumps?? Or Liv Tyler?? So what would he know about it anyway... lol! ;P Thanx again! *hugs* & to anyone who's listening, I could use some more educational comments like this one! =)"

I think the placing of the hairline is a little off, (too close to the eye) but other than that, it's really good. I admire people who can use the colour white well, I ususally bugger it up, so well done

11 Ria Jae Bond replies: "Very true criticism on th hairline issue, thanx! =) Heh, I cheated. I didn't actually USE the color white, I just left a hole in the colors on my paper! =D Thnx for the comment!"

No offence meant,but his eyes are grey.Else,its really good 12

32 Ria Jae Bond replies: "I've run into this problem before-- people sometimes disagree in what color other peoples' eyes are... I know I drew them rather *too* blue, but I would say that Jason himself has glacier blue eyes. That is, very pale blue. =) Thanx anyway!"

HE looks very awful. His eyes are amazing. And his hair looks soft. I want to touch it...

22 Ria Jae Bond replies: "He looks awful & yet you like it? Perhaps you meant awesome... His eyes are very pretty here, though unfortunately, not quite like Jason Isaacs' own. Oh, well. =D"

43 Ria Jae Bond replies: "Why, thank you so much! *hug* I have seen other artwork of him that is better, but I do still like this one, personally. =D"
