(Actually my first new one in about 4 years lol). I need to accept I am getting old now...lol! This time in the style of GTA V. I've always loved the art from those games, but the new art really blew me away! So I had to take a crack at it!

Amazing performer. His "Bring Him Home" brought me to tears. (The only other Valjean performer to ever do that was John Owen-Jones, and that was some serious competition) Don't have the time to do full portraits these days, but I thought I'd get at least half a portrait haha. The paint splatter effect is inspired by the scrapped "Kick-Ass" movie character posters.

Kick-Ass 2 was ok. Solid plot, but a little juvenile at some places. Shit needs to get real again and it needs to go back into mob/mafia territory. That was the best aspect of the 1st film which really grounded it.

Awesome movie. ...Yeah, I'm back to painting sparks and explosions again lol. Photoshop CS5 25 hours Airbrush + Texture brushes. Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches! Wed, 02 Oct 2013 20:38:27 -0400 Elysium - Kruger http://shadowness.com/Sheridan-j/elysium--kruger <a href="http://shadowness.com/Sheridan-j/elysium--kruger"><img src="http://shadowness.com/file/item9/368265/image_t6.jpg" /></a><br />Spent about 4 weeks on this, off and on in between projects. Thank god it's over, lol (Nah, I loved it) Anyway, "ELYSIUM" is pretty cool, and I like it because William Fichtner. But Kruger is my favorite villain for 2013. He totally owned it. This is the only way I could think of portraying his character. Seriously Used this as a base reference: (http://www.flicksandbits.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/08/Sharlto-Copley.jpg) and just improved from there. Photoshop CS5 40 hours ?? Airbrush + Texture brushes. Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches!

Fuck this guy, right? Haha, but seriously, he was an amazingly well done character. I gotta give Naughty Dog that one. I actually used the likeness of Ray McKinnon (Deadwood, Sons of Anarchy) for this one: http://img832.imageshack.us/img832/7528/7stl.jpg I just thought he has a rather interesting face and could work pretty well for this character. Photoshop CS5 About 20 hours! Airbrush + Texture brushes. Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches! Reffed off a few in-game screenshots to get his face looking as true to him as I can while still keeping a more realistic look at the same time. Tricky but fun stuff!

Why is there so little love for Bill? He was awesome. Photoshop CS5 About 20-25 hours! Airbrush + Texture brushes. Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches! Reffed off lots of screenshots to get his face looking as accurate as I can.

Anyway, have some Michael Shannon! This is an all-round tribute to the kind of characters he usually plays (he nails the crazy so damn well). I think an awesome style heavily influenced by JP Valderrama and Russ Mills was more than fitting for something like this! Photoshop CS5 8 hours or so (after a failed first attempt) Airbrush + Texture brushes. Dodge/Burn and Sharpen/Blur for finishing touches! Sun, 07 Jul 2013 07:19:41 -0400
