Le Salon d'Armitage

 DAY FIVE

Isn't he pretty as a picture with his head in a frame?
Many fans of Richard Armitage have been inspired to artistic endeavours.  There are all kinds of photographic artworks such as icons, avatars, siggies, banners, posters, not to mention videos which celebrate our interest in Mr. Armitage. I would like to focus on artwork that is more "old school".  To be precise, drawings or sketches, or paintings, done by hand. Not that I have anything against computer assisted graphics.  It is just that my theme is Monet in The Impressionists, so I am in an old-fashioned frame of mind. Or perhaps I am simply being as stuffy as the Salon members?  There are so many more fabulous works of art out there, I simply don't have room for them all!  The following is what I have managed to put together from the artists that I was able to contact and receive permission to display their work.
I hope these artists don't mind that I have framed their artwork.  But this is a fancy Salon after all!  So welcome to Phylly's Faves Gallery of Armitage Wonderfulness -- otherwise known as Le Salon d'Armitage. (Is my french phrasing correct? If not, please suggest a better term.)
Also, most of these artists have a page at deviantart.com. You are welcome to visit their pages and comment with the link provided.

I'm glad you featured a selection of these, because this is something that for various reasons I never really look at. Love to see how everyone draws Mr. Armitage in his various roles, and there are obviously some talented people out there!

Seeing all these intricate drawings and then as a contrast, the handsome SFR made me laugh out loud. :D

LOVE the gorgeous RA drawings! Some of them I hadn't seen before. I hate to break it to the SFR fans... but he doesn't exactly compare to the other pencil drawings. :) (But it was fun to see him framed!)
