Another Discworld Portrait


Another in a series of Terry Pratchett inspired illustrations to keep myself busy during a particularly slow year. One of my favorite characters in all of the Discworld books was the Patrician of the city of Ankh-Morpork, Havelock Vetinari. I’ve long pictured the british actor Charles Dance when I’ve read the books, and I was tickled to discover that he had in fact been cast in the role for the television adaptation “Going Postal” (Jeremy Irons played him in “Colour of Magic”, and according to the Wikipedia page, Terry Pratchett’s own choice of actor was the late Alan Rickman). So, for my portrait, I’ve sort of leaned towards Charles Dance, but with a different hairstyle and without the goatee, as he is so often pictured with).
