The reference photo was from MTV's Total Request Live at the MTV Times Square Studios on April 21, 2008 in New York City; he's so naturally impish.
4B pencil on Neil,
H-HB on background.
This is very well drawn. I am a hug fan of Neil Patrick Harris, and I love the way he pulls off Barney Stinson, well done!
Anyways, I love your art, and it's a long way but I'm aiming to draw like portraits like yours some day
Haha yeah I didn't start watching until season 4-5! Fans said the quality of episodes really went downhill at that time, but those episodes were the ones that got me into it.
Anyways, thanks for the help, it's very nice of you!
