Connor Temple by ChaosAcathla Connor Temple by ChaosAcathla
This is Andrew-Lee Potts as Connor Temple from the ITV series Primeval. Great show, I'm so glad they revived it!

I had considered doing him as Hatter from the mini series Alice as his character is just TOO cool, but when I searched for other Andrew-Lee Potts work here on dA it seems everyone that's ever drawn him has done him as Hatter, so I felt there should be more Connor love!

I'm really pleased with this one, I really tried to maintain focus! But my scanner as always has killed it.

EDIT: Why does it look out of focus in large view? It doesn't in the original file on my computer! ><

Time: approximately 8 hours.

Tools: 2H through 9B +blending tools putty eraser, pencil eraser and fixative

I hope you like it, please let me know what you think! ^^

This is awesome! It's so real looking. Andrew Lee Potts is such a great actor and you captured him so well.

Thank you very much, he has a difficult face to get right so I was very happy with how it came out! He is indeed a great actor! ^^

This is really good... a lot of people (me included lol) here on DA struggle, I've seen, with capturing a true likeness of Andrew Lee Potts, there's always something missing, but you've really got it here. I love it :)

And you're welcome :) and thank you :) I do feel like there's something missing, that I didn't get quite right with my ALP, but lol, I'm never fully happy with my art :)

I know what you mean I always feel the same, but it's a healthy way to be as an artist. Not being quite happy will drive you to improve but at the same time you need to know when to relax and appreciate what you have achieved. And i definitely think you can give your self a pat on the back! ^^

Aww, thank you.. I can say the same to you :D
Yeah, I agree with you, Whenever I finish a picture, I spot the mistakes and it makes me feel inspired for the next time to get those things better, but also to develop upon the things that you got right :)

I see what you mean he did come out a bit more like Robert. It's still a good picture though I think you should give it another bash, I bet you'll have improved! ^^
