Robin of Sherwood by suburbanbeatnik Robin of Sherwood by suburbanbeatnik
This was a gift for another friend, who loves "Robin of Sherwood," the old British TV show from the '80s that starred Michael Praed as Robin of Loxley. I've never seen it, but there's no shortage of pics on the internet of the guy or the show, so research wasn't really a problem...

I loved that series too! two years ago I got the DVD set and I was soooo happy! I like the drawing in pencil and the expression of the actor.

My fave tv-serie! What a cutie!!

Michael Praed is gorgeus, but hey his aftercomer Jason Connery is not so bad either...!

My friend (who unfortunately has since passed away) really liked this pic, and she was a huge fan of the show. I hope you like the pic too. :)

Oh wow, fantastic likeness! :) And the amount of detail you put into the picture is amazing! I've recently got into Robin of Sherwood, and it's awesome! How could one not love Robin Hood's story laced with Celtic mysticism?

I think I have to fave this... :)

Beautiful work.It was something of a breakthrough as a show, depicting Sherwood as somewhere that could be muddy and filthy and paying homage to the Old Gods.The saracen Character Nasir who faught with 2 scimitars inspired a whole generation of roleplayers to create tabletop and Live RolePlaying characters who faught with two swords.

It was a fabulous show that really paid tribute to the pagan gods (i.e. Herne the Hunter) as well as Robin Hood...and damn, Michael Praed was gorgeous in that show, lol. :)

Nice picture...especially love the face and detail in the costume.

I knew it, I knew it, I knew it was Michael Praed!

I had sketched Praed and company often. I loved that version and its sequel with the blond son of Fleming (I believe), although I thought Praed played Robin a bit stiffly. The newest BBC one does not seem as good; and I still think Costner's was among the most interesting, even if I'm in the minority in saying that. Of course, the older classic movies were lots of fun.

I'm a big Robin fan; he's part of the inspiration to a series of my works that is showcased elsewhere.
