The Shining by Miss-Misery1313 The Shining by Miss-Misery1313
This is what happens when I get in a weird mood and put "The Shining" in my DVD player. And yes, I watched the entire movie while drawing this.

This is an amazing drawing, a perfect replica of the movie character. I love the shading, I am definitely not this talented! Keep drawing, you are insanely talented! He looks so realistic, I swear, do you draw for the police or something?? Gorgeous drawing, great technique, just looking at him I am freaking out xD I have literally nothing bad to say about this drawing. The expression on his face is perfectly evil, the hair looks real, and my God, the eyes are so deep and entrancing! Again keep drawing, you are an amazing artist! I am subscribing to you!
What do you think?

14 out of 15 deviants thought this was fair.

When I typed in "The Shining" there weren't any other pieces so this is definitely original. You did a really good job on the eyes and lines of the face, but the teeth are a little bit flat. There could have been a bit more detail there though it is obvious to me that you toke your time on this piece so I will give you credit for that. I really like how you nailed the expression and got his hair and beard just right. You did an amazing job and I would love to see more of your work:)

Well you certainly did better with this than I did. Kudos!
As creepy as in the original picture.

Holy crap, that face looks scary... Just goes to show craziness and isolation can really change a man.

Anyway, this looks awesome; from the details on his beard and moustache, to his insane eyes and his nose which has been drawn sublimely.

Great work mate, well done. =)
