I found this while cleaning through my hard drive. It’s a study from years ago when I started working with my Wacom tablet and Corel Painter. I’ve never really explored Painter thoroughly, ..not even really using it for the Koni pieces I did for my friend Steve. It’s a fun tool though and I should consider cultivating some real skills with it. I guess when it comes down to digital painting I'm a die-hard Photoshop man.
I've always loved this photo, though.
It’s actor Conrad Veidt. A frame from ’The Hands Of Orlac’, made in 1928. I'm a silent film nerd and I like the idea of using old photos as reference for color illustrations rather than colorizing or tinting.
It has made for some pretty striking movie posters over the decades
