I love it..but, and I hope I don't offend you, it reminds ME more of Damian. The eyes are sooo Nathaniel, but everything else screams Damian to me...I still love the pic tho.

:iconleafofsteel:
LeafOfSteel Featured By Owner Jan 4, 2010  Professional General Artist
Of course you don't offend me :)
When it comes to Damian, I would draw him a bit more mature than that :)
On the other hand you might find this one too mature for Nathaniel.
But I'm glad you like it anyway :)
Cheers!

Amazing :) So far all the Nathaniel pictures I've seen make him look far too masculine. You've balanced the boyishness with the feminine sex appeal he is described as having. The only thing missing is the abused puppy look, but I think that's really insignificant in light of how this turned out ;)

You have done great justice to the Anita Blake Universe. My God... He's beautiful. I've read every Anita Blake book so far and please konw that when I say it's like he walked out of the book, it's coming from a true fan.

Nathaniel is my favorite character. He's just amazing. Love how you did his eyes. You got the color perfect. :)
I'm currently reading the series for the first time and I am almost done with Narcissus in Chains. It is far too good. I hope Anita has sex with him soon. If not, I may claim him. Lol.
Nathaniel's great. Good job.
I love it.
It's almost a perfect depiction of him. <3

I'm loving the series.
Right now, I'm torn between hating Richard and loving him. Because... I know Anita loves him - how can you not? - but he's an asshole. D:
There are faults in everyone.
Merci.
You are very welcome.

Oh, Richard can be a real pain. But he can be also pretty reasonable from time to time. he was my favourite character until his lack of self-acceptance started to take over everything.

:icondeaddragula:
deaddragula Featured By Owner Jun 22, 2009
Yeah.
He needs to be a man. :D
Jason's awesome too.
I could make a list of all the people I hated and liked in the whole series so far.

Jamil would probably be in the middle.
Shang-da... I dunno.
