Hannibal Lecter by hever Hannibal Lecter by hever
This is the one I really wanted to do.

Now for a lesson in psychodynamic theory: The Repetition Compulsion is when we do the same thing over and over again in a vicious cycle and whenever we try to make it better, we only make it worse. It is a result of early unresolved childhood issues, and depending on how traumatic the event was, the more so it stifles our behavior. Stemming from the principle, "I long for my mother/ father/ sister/ brother/ etc...and something inside of me is not right" and so you desperately need to relive the situation in order to try to fix it in the hope of feeling something "real". Therefore, I tend to draw/ paint the same subject continuously and Hannibal Lecter eats people.

Watercolor. And I am pleased with how it turned out.

*P.S. I've added the initial sketch with a detailed explanation of my process if anyone was curious about the steps I took in painting it: [link]

This is awesome, you are awesome, he is awesome, and Thomas Harris is at the very least a demi-god.

And thank you for including a description of how you work in the sketch version, it's so nice to see the process that different people go through, especially when the end product is this wonderful. Imma go rummage through your gallery now. :3

Ye gods!
I have attempted many portraits of Lecter (Older Versions ofcoarse)
and yet I hope to capture one with the same intensity of the eyes.
This will take a while.
Remarkable work!
