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*

Does anyone else think he's Red John or is that just my father? ;-; I don't want him to be Red John, he so cant be Red John. (/.\)

YAYYYYYY!!!! im not the only one who watches this show!! its kinda funny though cause i always figure out who the badguy was moments before jane does his whole bad-ass mentalist scenes....
ZakkVanBurace Featured By Owner Dec 3, 2011
OMG, I was stalking your gallery 'cause I got attracted by your anime style, and I suddenly shouted "JANEE!!!!". This fanart is one of the best ones I've seen *-*

I love this pic! Awesome reflection! Bravo!
MUTEscifan31W Featured By Owner Oct 18, 2010
I dunno if it was intentional, but Jane's reflection in the Red John smiley face is like a half face within a full face. Even though they don't fit perfectly, Jane's face makes up half of the smiley, eye by eye, nose near center, mouth by mouth. Like the similarities and differences between the two characters.

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
IndigoPhoenix Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2009
Oooh! Cool pic! And damn straight it's an awesome show! :love:

"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.

Awesome work!

this show completely ripped off of pysch. it pisses me off!
tlahti Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2009   Writer
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!
