Dem faces

It is indeed the month of the 29 Faces challenge. So far I've managed two. Life's hectic at the mo, what can I say. :-)

The man, the myth, the moustache

Ramon Tikaram / Dorian Pavus
Here's another one of Ramon Tikaram in the guise of the mage he so beautifully voiced, Dorian of House Pavus. Because I love his face so why the heck not.:-)

Happy New Year!

Little Micky - wip
A very happy new year to you all! I had a rather dramatic end to 2019 from an artistic point of view, as my computer decided it did not want to experience the new decade. Luckily, I am a belt and braces kinda cat, so my files are ok, and have now taken up residence on my spangly new machine. And I shall be living on porridge for the foreseeable future. As with everything there are teething issues, but the only way is forwards. So, for now, as I get to know my new beastie, have a wip of Little Micky manning the front desk at the airport on New Year's Eve. Lots of love to you all!

Magic moustache

Ramon Tikaram / Dorian Pavus
Because it was so much fun the first time round, here's another one of Ramon Tikaram - Dorian's voice actor - as Dorian.
I call this one 'That look you get on your face when you hear someone talking shit about your husband'.
After ten years of marriage to the inquisitor Dorian has grown his hair out a bit, and is still as ready as ever to launch a fireball up the backside of anyone disrespecting his amatus.

You had me at G'day

Mr Albert 'Bert' Johnson
You know those characters that are always there... good, solid, reliable... and in this case perpetually frowning, usually with a half smoked ciggie dangling from the corner of the mouth... Yeah, you know them, right. Well, his name is Bert, he's a 1920's commie cab driver who also helps Miss Fisher with her murder solving... and I would fight all the spiders in Australia for him. He's played by delightful actor Travis McMahon, for whom I would also fight spiders if he's even remotely like his cab driving alter ego in real life.
Seriously, go check out the 'Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries' series, it's brilliant.

Dear Dorian

Ramon Tikaram / Dorian Pavus
Sometimes you come across a character who just resonates with you so very deeply it's almost infuriating. For me, Dorian Pavus from Dragon Age Inquisition is one of those. There is a spectacular number of reasons for this, and one of them is in no small part thanks to amazing actor Ramon Tikaram who gave him his voice.
Turns out that he is as gorgeous to look at as his voice is to listen to. I simply couldn't resist. I give you Ramon Tikaram as Dorian Pavus.

A little sparkle

I really want to paint Lord Tirion in all his finery with some massive over the top head gear and whatnot. But I always find myself toning him right back. Just a little gentle glitter in the fabric and a silver string in the hair. Perhaps next time. :-)
