How gorgeous. I love the large dark shape of his coat with all the flickery shading of the books... it's so graphic and a bit abstract! Love love love!

You are very good, sir. I bow my head to you.

How did you manage not to bore the shit out of yourself when you were draving the bookshelves? It's fantastic.

I really like his hair and his coat, both are so dark yet you managed to make the coat look textured and the hair like, well, hair. :B Niiice!

Thank you! I really hate this particular image I have of this drawing. The scan made the black parts of the coat look all shiny and fixing it in PS made it look...ugh...like a bit of a Photoshop disaster, so I think I'll try to get a proper scan some time and see what I can do about it.

Ugh, scanners. -_- Sometimes you can't make the scan look like the original thing, no matter how hard you try. :(
