Today I want to share one of the most wonderful original works of art of Spike -
I love this portrait not only for its technical quality but for the expressive quality of the character.

Everything, IMO, is right about this portrait - I would die happy if I could do anything close to this.

I think I've seen that portrait of Spike before, and you're right, it's so realistic that, as the old saying goes, "it would almost speak to you."

I think I mentioned before that, what few attempts I have made to draw likenesses,  I found that, if you can't get the eye expression right, then it's not going to look like the person-as weird as that sounds. This person totally got "Spike's" eye expression, as portrayed by JM.

I think this is the best realistic portrait of Spike I have ever seen.  The artist showed it at my old Whedon World Gallery.  There is another artist that was doing original art portraits I believe he lived in England - he did great portraits of several Buffy and Angel characters but I lost his name.  I've been trying to locate him again for a long time but I've never been able to find him nor has anyone answered by call for information.  All I have are what I read as his initials - DG and since the images I have are so small, I cannot make out his signature at all.

I am in awe of this person's talent - I don't think there is anything more difficult to draw than the human face.
