True Blood "Sam Merlotte" by scotty309 True Blood "Sam Merlotte" by scotty309
This drawing is a portrait of Sam Trammel as "Sam Merlotte"from the HBO series True Blood

I did this drawing as a practice sketch, It has been a while since I have drawn much of anything and I felt that my skills were a little rusty

size 8 1/2" x 16 1/2"
drawn with prismacolor colored pencils, graphite No2 pencil, with india ink and white acrylic highlights on Strathmore colord paper.

True Blood and all related characters and properties are copyrighted by HBO

Wow, this is positively beautiful. I am SO a Sam girl and you...you captured that smirk so perfectly. Rusty? Sweetie if this is you rusty, I get chills to think of how incredible you are when you're on your A-game.

Wow! You are incredibly talented! The likeness, color, shading, depth - everything is perfect! Your art is a lot better than many of the "pay to use" artists I've seen out there. Your True Blood and Supernatural art is my favorite!
I would be very interested in promoting your art for free in our paint shop pro tag groups. We are free, non-profit groups and would put your copyright on every tag (your web link also if you like).
Please let me know. If you would like more details, please let me know how I can contact you privately.

Thank you & keep up the beautiful work!

Sincerely,
Julie

I've become a fan of True Blood very, very recently.
I find it rather odd that the first piece of "True Blood" fanart I comment on is a portrait of Sam instead of, oh, I don't know, someone with fangs, but honestly...
If this - THIS! - is what you do when you're rusty, then I can officially say you have way too much talent. One single person can't be that good, it's just physically impossible. If you could bottle some of your skill and sell it, you'd make billions and still have plenty left.
