Do You Trust Me? by KJS-1 Do You Trust Me? by KJS-1
Here's another drawing I just finished...I was inspired by the recent TV episodes of The Vampire Diaries.

I grew up reading those original books from L.J. Smith and have to admit that I was not too fond of the remake of the show on CW. First of all, Elena's supposed to be blond! Nina Dobrev looks more like the character Meredith (which didn't even make it into the TV series).

Don't get me started on Stefan...I was really disappointed in the choice for Stefan, but it makes me like Damon all the more (hence the focus on Damon and Elena). Ian Somerhalder is the perfect Damon!

Slowly but surely, I was drawn into the series, and the major differences between the books and the TV show didn't really seem to bother me as much.

Hope you all enjoy! Leave a comment and let me know how you all are doing!

HI there 

I was wondering if by chance if you would be able to draw me a book cover ? I know you don't know me but your art is very nice and I'm also wondering about price on one of your drawings

Alright, I think this is by far one of my favourites: it features two of my favourite characters and is very well drawn.

Almost looks like a photograph!  This is something I am attempting to achieve without much success, so far.  I would love to know how you manage it.
This is simply amazing.

Wow, incredible! The detail on her hair and his stubble is just breathtaking! You captured in pencil the shading on the skin and wrinkles of the face so finely. The blackness of the background really makes this image stand out in your gallery. Nice work on all your sketches...they look so detailed and realistic in likeness.

Looks really nice, totally like them that's for sure. I like how you drew elena's hair a lot. A think I find weird though is Damon's eyes; it looks like they're not at the same level to me :\. Overall great piece regardless! :D
