Cultural Event.

I decided to use the day of Union action to get a piece of unfinished work from the start of the year, completed and up on this blog.

In September we were asked to go to a cultural event, make a piece of artwork as a response to it and present it to the class. So I chose to do a flash loop animation summing up District 9 after I went to see it.

Explicit Language NSFW - Beware!

As much as I loved the film. The protagonist really does lose the biscuit...ALOT.

This is for.....Thierry?

So, shanbolic carry on with the world cup qualifier tonight. We all had a nice old complain and moan about what happened. So I decided to post this picture up here to ease my pain.

If you haven't figured it out, it's Luc Besson's Léon/The Professional which is my all time favourite film. I am still proud to say that Léon is a favorite film, while unlike my old favourites, Face/Off and Predator 2, were ruined by acquired common sense/maturity.

The Image was done in primarily in photoshop. Being sketched first, scanned, and painted over with many many layers. However the cross-hair Léon and Mathilda are standing on was done in Illustrator to save time.

The following picture collage are all my reference images for this picture, followed by the original sketch for comparison.

SGW Multimatch AR-15

So I have this issue with my illustrations in that I'm quite obcessive for details. I will draw all of these details on something regardless of if you actually see then in the final piece.
So here's what I finished today, I figured I'd post it before it gets covered with arms in the final picture.

Also, this website has the most amazing reference for firearms I've ever seen. Mainly because you can search by the film you may have seen it in. Handy for my current illustration, and is the reason why I know what gun it is I've illustrated.
