This afternoon I gave myself an hour to do a digitally painted portrait, just to see what I could manage given the time constraint. I want to do more of this kind of work after using this process for my Hobo With a Shotgun and Drive posters. I completed this in 58 minutes, despite being interrupted by a phone call. Rock n’ roll.
I knew right away who I wanted to paint, the main character from my favourite movie. Chief Martin Brody from JAWS, played by the late Roy Scheider, based on a frame from the movie just after the shark’s big reveal.
