Dexter - Debra Morgan by Stanbos Dexter - Debra Morgan by Stanbos
Portrait of Jennifer Carpenter, bristol, 41,5 x 41,5 cm, graphite pencils (2H to 8B).

That's over, I watched the finale of Dexter and as many others, I was pretty disappointed. But well, the las season was great though, I never imagined an end like that...

Don't ask me how much time I needed to achieve this portrait, I absolutely don't know, I stopped counting hours. It was hard to be motivated to finish it, I started to draw at the beginning of August, I may have chosen a bigger paper, I still don't like drawing brown hair... So I guess I drew maybe a little bit too quick at the end, I could have focus on some details further. But I loved this picture as soon as I discovered it though ! I think it completely represents Debra's mood in this last season, dangerous for herself and others...

I agree, the end was disapointing, but i have to disagree about season 8, the first 5 episodes were amazing, but then... it's just went bad..
but i loved all the zach, vogel and saxon plot, they were good characters!
And obviously, my dear deb, she will always be in my heart </3

This is completely gorgeous!! You captured Deb amazingly. I absolutely love the pose and her eyes. 

I was also really disappointed with the finale :( I had a rage fest about it after the episode ended. I kept denying that they couldn't end it like that... I wish I was still in denial.

this needs waaaaaaaaay more favs than it has. I never understand why traditional portraits / drawings are often overlooked on dA. Nevertheless, amazing effort i can only dream of achieving.

I love the emotion you've captured in her eyes. What a beautiful tribute to a great character! You are definitely -not- alone in being disappointed with the finale, but you've captured her spirit magnificently!

Excellent drawing and fantastic tribute to Debra :heart: This is a very realistic, great shading. Love the hair, we can see the volume of it!
I was disappointed how story of Jennifer's character ended, too. I felt for her much more than for Dexter :(
