Heathcliff -Wuthering Heights- by kyla79 Heathcliff -Wuthering Heights- by kyla79
This is for It's Heathcliff, from the novel "wuthering heights" by Emily Bronte. Gosh I adore that book! I'm re-reading it right now!!!

Anyway, this is my first ever pic done entirely in photoshop and all. Took me a HELL of a lot of time (paper is better! ;) ) Almost seven friggin hours... The background was really quickly done. Best seen NOT in full view :D

Hope you'll enjoy! :)

Heathcliff is such a deep character. I still understand him, but he's still got a lot to him

I just saw the movie, I love it! (though I've never heard of it before, stupid me) xD but Heathcliff kinda reminds me of Severus Snape, I dunno why =p

Ah, Wuthering Heights... Un de mes romans préférés pour ses personnages, avec Notre-Dame de Paris sans doute. Une scène capitale, et bien rendue. :-) Assez fidèle à l'image que je me faisais d'Heathcliff. J'aime beaucoup.

"He dashed his head against the knotted trunk; and, lifting up his eyes, howled, not like a man, but like a savage beast being goaded to death with knives" I love quoting WH :D

Gorgeous fanart! You've really captured the book's gothic atmosphere :love:

Nice. I assume that the men of the Bronte novels are kind of... not quite as handsome as they could be for the main male character. I read 'Jane Eyre' but not 'Wuthering Heights'. But you're peaking my interest with your art. Well done!

I prefer line art done on paper first for myself. It's always easier to maneuver your hand with a pencil than it is with a pen tool. Very good though.

Poor sad Heathcliff. That book was kinda depressing, but I still liked it. Nice one!

...and yes, Heathcliff also reminds me of Snape. Guess that's why I loved Snape when I saw him...well that, and the fact that when the movie came out it was Alan Rickman!;)

I also love the way you draw him.
You really captured the intensity of the scene.

Reading Wuthering Heights is much better than watching the movie. I always like the way The Bronte sisters wrote their stories with a lot of descriptions to entertain my imaginations. Anyway, I like your tree hugging heathcliff's sketch. It's very like him though he reminds me of Snape. Well, the sisters loved their Byronic heroes to have roman-liked noses and vulcan expressions.

Simply amazing, though very reminiscent of your Severus Snape painting. Geesh, I sound constipated. Anyhoodles, I love it. Kinda pictured Heathcliff with darker skin.
Okay, shutting up now.

Aww! Heathcliff! My favourite character from "Wuthering Heights" (which is one of my favourite novels :D).
Duh! I loved him, nevermind, how loud did he scream on everybody and what did he do generally.

Great picture! :clap: First drawing in Photoshop?! :jawdrop: Well... my first is definately worse. :hmm:

Knowing that our tastes are more or less the same, I dare to predict that you might especially like John Childermass. ;)
I'd kill to see a Childermass drawing done by you! :XD:

Tu devrais aussi lire "Jane Eyre" (de Charlotte Bronte, sa soeur); je crois que finalement, j'adore le personnage Edward Fairfax Rochester encore plus que Heathcliff... Mais pas autant que Snape, bien sûr! ;)
