If there's some Daniel Craig there it's (as Bob Ross would say) a happy little accident. I wasn't thinking of anyone in particular. I do use photo references (from here on DA--lots of great stock providers here) but sometimes I go at it without reference.
I hope I stay dry. I live on the East Coast of the U.S. and hurricane Sandy is coming right at me as we speak. We're preparing for a direct hit. If I'm not on here for a while it could be the massive power failures that are predicted. Crossing my fingers.
Rightfully the winner!!! It is kind of weird, but I think I can relate more to Paul now that I see his face! We humans are a visual species. He is Paul, isn't he? Because the mention of the red haired man I think made many people picture Paul as red haired, too.
Thank you all for your kind comments. I just got home and checked in to see it was picked. I love watching this creative process evolve --so many great pieces of prose and art flowing in. It's almost like they could put together a few books instead of just one. Keep them coming, and thanks again for your comments--they mean a lot to me.
Thank you. I've been trying to evolve my style a bit to be more illustrative and less painterly. I was looking through your stock galleries last night to find a piece to put through the new "style" (LOL). I have a few favorites, so I need to narrow it down.
Man that's good. It's a great prologue piece. The charater's expression really fits the with the narrative of the character in the prologue. I like that you didn't go with the train scene like most people did. It's simple but provacative, and I think this definately could be the piece that ends up being the one to nab the position. Great job!
Thanks. I didn't want to be too literal in showing an exact scene from the prologue. I figured just doing an illustration of the red-haired character looking worried would add more mystery--especially since no one knows where the story is going.
Thanks. This is the first piece I did using my new Wacom Cintiq. Damn thing is so expensive, I was saving up for it for six years. It's worth it, though--it made the process much easier being able to paint right on the monitor with pressure sensitivity, especially painting hair.
