i wish i was a fly on the studio wall on the day of this photoshoot  
One good thing about LJ blackouts is that you take the time you think you never have, to finish all those pesky little projects you started ages ago (most likely during the previous blackout), stuff that seemed like a good idea at the time but now sit on your hard disk gathering the proverbial dust. Of course, the moment LJ is on-line again you get sucked right back in and you forget not only to post them but their existence altogether; but I digress.

I fell in love with this photo the moment I saw it. There is this Mona Lisa quality to David's smile that does it for me, tickles me, makes me warm inside and happy. Impish, intense, pretty, pretty David Hewlett. I colored the photo on a whim, I hope you like it. The original b&w version is from imdb.com.

It's my first attempt at coloring a b&w photo and I'm well aware it's less that perfect. *grins* Nevertheless, please feel free to pass the link around. If you use it for icons or art, credit would be nice but it's not necessary; a link however to what you've made will be better than chocolate!

This looks awesome! I saw the photo first and read your comments afterwards and I was a little "What, this is NOT the original photo?" 'cause it damn well looks like it ;)

keep on the good work!

(And, oh, these eyes *melts away*)

OH, that's very lovely. He's got such a wonderful expression and you did a great job on the eyes. Well done.

For now, I just gakked this to have it on my PC and stare at it for ... uhm, say an eternity and a half. What a wonderful job you did on this!!! I never was really fond of that picture although I usually love b&w. You made it perfect and absolutely adorable!!!

Omg, that looks awesome, when you said coloured in, i thought just the eyes, (coz omg so purrty) but that really does look like an original photo, I love all the details, like the stuble, and the fluffyness of the hair and the txture of the shirt (hee gould color choices)

*Koff* shameless self-plugging: speaking of his smile, i recently wrote a fic sort of about it this way: http://sara86.livejournal.com/29709.html#cutid1
