"Horatio Hornblower"

You probably know the TV series about a fictional character, a Royal Navy officer, Horato Hornblower. The films were based on C. S. Forester's novels and the title role was played by Ioan Gruffudd. I haven't read the books yet, but the adventures depicted in the films made me want to do so. In the meantime I decided to draw a portrait of the main character inspired by the films. I hope you like it.

  1. You have captured the mariner's steely resolve and pierching gaze beautifully...

  2. Oh I do like this portrait. Excellent drawing :-)

    1. Thank you, Ann, it was supposed to be a quick sketch, but I got interested in the expression of the face and decided to develop more details.
