After watching The Words tonight I felt compelled to paint this striking shot from the movie.
Done in photoshop in about an hour.
I feel this film deserves more recognition than it got, it’s a surprisingly heartfelt story about people and the mistakes they make. If you haven’t seen it, it deserves a look.
I’m a little behind on the daily sketches since I’ve been working on other things, and the last few took longer than I would have liked them too (although I suppose that is the point of the exercise, to get faster/better at it). I think too much thought when into them, so when I finished up today I just grabbed an empty canvas and went to town with a 20px brush, no looking back.
I’ve been wanting to do this piece for a while but I had to muster up some courage, capturing likenesses can be hit or miss. But my gung-ho approach seems to have paid off, and I’m glad I got this one out of my system now.
