No, don't check who posted it, you didn't watch someone else by accident. I can do more than anime =P

I've written it on the picture incase you can't place the guy, if you can't place him you really should check this show out for its almost interactive storytelling techniques- The Mentalist. I don't expect many of you to know what that is since it's quite a mature show (just in tastes) The character here is the main character; his name is Patrick Jane. He's an ex-magician (a mentalist) His personality is somewhere between L and, Sousuke Aizen, Ichimaru Gin and BATMAN. Yes, that combination is possible.

His nemesis of sorts is Red John, whose signature that is. Red John is a serial killer- "... the first thing that anyone sees is the face on the wall. You see the face first and you know. You know what's happened and you feel dread. Then, and only then do you see the body of the victim. Always in that order."

I really love this show; I'd been studying magic before it came out, (since my own character uses street magic) so seeing the title, it just clicked in my mind, 'oh man, this is going to be AWESOME' - and it -was-. My family loves this show; it's the first time they've pestered me to finish a fanart. =P

ART-WISE!- I had to get ref! Buuuut I'm not a fan of copying, so we are speaking reference for this guy's appearence, nothing more (I din' copy nothin'!). Though, now, I feel like I can draw him again without too much trouble XD - I could have tried a realism style, (and failed as per usual) but given a little inspiration I ended up trotting the comic-book/graphic novel line. It'd look good as a cover, right? Jane on the front, his reflection and the serial killer; Red John's signature on the back. Ohohoho. *just wants more epic crime-fightingness* Actually it's a fun style, I think I'll do it again; but hopefuly I'll be more relaxed, I was quite excacting about it, so it took longer than my usual works. Oh yeah, it's all digital too, another oddity for me. ^_^

SO! Enjoy! Or just sit there and say, 'I've heard of it!' or 'Hey, he looks like that guy from-' like I know you will *grin* I had a lot of fun! *gets back to work*

Great job! I love The Mentalist. ^^
AmberSagrath Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2009
I love the mentalist, and I can't wait for the next episode. You got Jane pretty well, he just looks a little younger in the fanart than in the show I think. I could tell it was him from the thumbnail, and not just because of the red john thing. XD

AEC1990 Featured By Owner Sep 18, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'm not quite sure why, but something about him, the angle of the mirror and his reflection in the mirror don't seem quite right...... Maybe.... There seems to be a corner behind the Mentalist's head, but the mirror seems to be viewed from head on, and while the direction of the face in the mirror might be right for if the mirror were on a wall that were slightly behind and tho his right, the angle of the face looks wrong because the mirror would reflect more of the back of his head if it were behind him, as it appears... Or something like that...

Other than that, everything looks nice. I really like the pattern on the wallpaper and the comic book-esque feel

"Whoever murdered the victim, please keep your hand up" *pause as everyone puts their hands down* "Funny...that normally works."

This show is gold. I'm so glad you did a fanart for it! :D

One of the greatest new shows on TV. So can't wait for all those great shows to return this month
kanjo-girl Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2009
This is my favorite show. Ever. It's like the best version of sherlock holmes....
inlore00 Featured By Owner Sep 3, 2009
Wow this is good

i have started watching the show...about a few episodes from the start

i do know some back story...but that's for another discussion

seeing the show for as long as i had i have NEVER seen Jane with that expression

it in a way scared me

i really like this pic by the way if you did not know

but i guess what i want to know is who died...
i say this because in the recent episode(or not recent)
when they found a sort of friend of Red John

Patrick was still in his cool facade...up until he found Red Johns friend

We know Patrick is out for blood...Johns to be exact
but he never really loses his cool

maybe i am a little late on the series to be speaking -sigh-
well sorry for this...comment for being long ehehe
NoLifeWithoutDeath Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2009
i love that show :D although its kinda just a more serious copy of psyche and monk. but i still love it anyways :D
Ukiro Featured By Owner Sep 1, 2009
i love this show, can't wait for the new season.

"have the ever shown who RED JOHN is? I really want to know. Does anyone have any guess as to who it is?"
my favorite episode is when the CBI is talking to a doctor via computer and Jane figures out that it is actually RED JOHN sportting a name using Dr. @&$#%

This is amazing :D Great work :D
iamsupablonde Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2009
Do you know how much I love you? It's a lot by the way, I've been wanting my Patrick fix since the series ended :).I love the dark almost comicbook-esque look to the piece and you really show Jane how he is, blank in many ways but with this amazingly bloody past.
Wandering-Hitokiri Featured By Owner Aug 30, 2009
Oh man, I LOVE this show!!! Jane kicks total ass.
SlytherinPunk Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009

You did an amazing job with it--the likeness is great.
and I'm glad you included the Red John trademark.

Awesome work!

Ooh, this is a nice one. You are right, it is a great show. I love his approach to problems :P

On a side note... If I remember correctly, the smiley is drawn using three fingers in a clockwise motion, but your smiley looks more like a paint brush. Not that it really matters, I just noticed :P good job.
DJChocolate-Lover Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009  Student General Artist
Nice job. I like the show too!
HiyonoEva Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009   Photographer
really looks like Jane! awesome...
Ickleronny Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009
I think you captured his characteristics, since when I first this, I could tell it's Patrick~

Good work!
PhoenixofLife Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
omg! I love this show! I've watched all the episodes (except... the two I fell asleep through ^_^) I was just thinking about the boxset release ^o^ I very much like the angle of his face in the mirror.... *sigh* Now I want to watch it right now! lol. It's very good.
Cherry-Blossom102 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009
Your drawing rules!!
PaladinArtea Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009
wow what crazy combination of character personalities.
Ani-Roma702 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009
That is amazing! O.O :XD: I watched Mentalist before but I haven't seen it in a while.
L0RIANN Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009
Awesome picture!!!!!
systrami Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009
God, I LOVE that show! Patrick Jane is the most awesome character in a tv-series since...ever

When I first saw the thumbnail, I knew exactly who it was! Great job! :D
Yvee-chan Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I've heard of The Mentalist, but never watched it before. Great picture btw!
Twilight-Aura Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2009   Writer
I like the style. It's almost like cell-shaded realism... if that makes any sense.

I've heard the show's great, but I refuse to watch it. They stole the whole premise from Psych, which is a comedy about a guy with a photographic memory posing as a psychic that came out in 2006. It's a stupid reason, but oh well. :shrug: The serial killer thing sounds interesting. Maybe I'll give it a shot.
Trunks766 Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009
Don't worry, it's not a stupid reason. I can't bring myself to watch it for that reason either. lol

NARUTARDpride Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2009
My mom really likes this show
I like Cho (he's way cool)
Nice drawing~
marora Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2009
The mentalist has never seemed like a shoe that requires too much maturiy to watch, it's not the best acting I've seen, but it's quite decent as far as story lines go.

I like the picture, it's a step out of your normal style for you. Good excersize with the mirror , practicing reflections is hard no matter what their projected on.
Bengelbabe02 Featured By Owner Aug 28, 2009  Hobbyist General Artist
wow i love this show!!! and i saw this episode i think! haven't been watching it so what has happen lately?
