The Cavalry by Grace5150 The Cavalry by Grace5150
Ok, that's finally done. Took ages.

Tom Hiddleston as Cpt. Nicholls from War Horse.

I've found a growing passion for that era, I can't get enough. I also can't get enough Tom but I think there's a lot of people who understand that feeling...

painted in cs3 with tablet....no idea how many hours, more than it should have been. Used pic from the film for reference.

I just recently saw that film, I think my favorite part was the Tom Hiddleston and Benjamin Cumberbatch scenes :D (Big Grin) 
Beautiful, beautiful work, thank you!

Are there any pics of Captain Nicholls meeting Captain Steve Rogers from the United States? Not from the movie (obviously), but some bit of fan art somewhere?

Hey I never thought about this until just now when I saw this one but was he the same actor who played Loki in Thor and in the Avengers? This looks really good. He looks so real.

This is the best portrait of a living person Ive seen in my 28 years of life...and Im not saying it just because Im a fan of wargamimg nad Mr. Hiddleston is wearing a battledress. You wrote there that it took ages...well, obviously it was bloody worth it. Great job.
