"The artist has managed to capture this brilliantly funny expression, that on its own is not as funny, but anyone who has seen Blackadder should feel that chuckle coming when seeing this." ( Suggested by Trichardsen and Featured by deshrubber )

I am not familiar with the British comedy show, Blackadder Goes Forth.   But I don't need to be, in order to appreciate your excellent drawing of one of the show's actors.  :iconcardinalplz:
