Happy Big 3-0, Moose!  
I did this kinda on-the-fly today, in a vain attempt to wrangle watercolors. I adjusted the contrast a teensy bit and tried to get rid of paper-wrinkles, but this is pretty much as-is. It's not quite what I wanted but...eh. I might fiddle with digital enhancements some other day.

But for now, Happy Berfday, Jared. Stay as heart-breaking as you are. :D (And a secondary dedication to cassiopeia7 because she made me do it; it's all her fault!)








Click for bigger version. Cheap, burnt umber watercolor, two brushes, mechanical pencil, and not-quite-watercolor paper. It buckled. Oh, and GORGEOUS reference from the Nerd HQ panel. Of course!

OH, THE GLORIOUS MANE OF HAIR!

And to answer your question from tumblr (even if it was rhetorical), watercolor is the devil! I was playing around with my set the other day and ended up throwing out most of my paintings in frustration. LOL

I get reeeeeeally stubborn when a medium bests me. I'll get this damned stuff figured out YET. ;)

So pretty. <3 Watercolors can be so tricksy, silly buggers. You are suuuper talented.

Well that's just gorgeous. Wow.

Oh, that is lovely! ♥ The hair and the dimples! Jared is one beautiful man.

I'm sorry, but at this lenght I really have to cut it *gets scissors*
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on July 20th, 2012 05:07 pm (UTC)
Nooooooooo! *tackles* You do not touch Moose's hair!
Teritmn1966 on July 20th, 2012 08:43 am (UTC)
Oh, I love his hair and his eyes. And the expression on his face! Beautifully done! ♥
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on July 20th, 2012 05:07 pm (UTC)
Thank you, darling!

*squeals*

Oh, just look at that HAIR! And those beautiful, bright and oh, so alive eyes! Jared is already beautiful and you've made him gorgeous. Bravo, you.

Aww, bb, thank you! But really, I only made a gentle suggestion -- you were the one who took that suggestion and ran with it. \o/
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on July 20th, 2012 05:06 pm (UTC)
HAIR! \O/! Hair is fun. And he's got really fun hair. Thank you, dollface!
downjune: samdownjune on July 20th, 2012 11:36 am (UTC)
Ooh, I like it when you change your medium! :D This is lovely! Love the hair and (truncated) sideburns. Haha, and I just learned that Jared is only one month older than me--I didn't realize we were so close in age!
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on July 20th, 2012 05:05 pm (UTC)
CANCER FOR THE WIN! (Astrologically, that is.) ;)

Thank you! I'm getting a tad burnt out on digital media; nothing beats the human touch.
Goodnight monsters, everywherehoneylocusttree on July 20th, 2012 01:26 pm (UTC)
Well I like it--it has a lot of personality. That's what I enjoy most about analog media, they tend to be more *alive* than digital stuff.
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on July 20th, 2012 05:04 pm (UTC)
I totally agree. Digital is so damned practical, but nothing beats the human touch. I think that's why I'm becoming quite disenchanted with digital art these days. The happy accidents of watercolor are unpredictable and glorious.

Christ, he's beautiful <3
The indefatigable Mrs. Griffinquickreaver on July 20th, 2012 05:03 pm (UTC)
I know, right? He's such an odd assortment of features that somehow works. Not traditionally handsome but daaaaayum, I'll take non-traditional!
