Hannibal- Phase 2


Phase 2 of my Hannibal picture. Without getting too detailed I done a full black and white value painting. I would have liked to have rendered it to a higher degree but time is against me and today will see him getting some colour applied.
I made some structural changes through the painting process most notably to his head. My photo reference was relatively low quality so I put my hand my pocket and paid to download the movie Silence of the Lambs from iTunes and was able to get some good screen grabs, which has really helped. Still toying with the idea of throwing some 'props' into the picture, so dont be surprised if you see a bottle of Chianti in the final.

That's very impressive, very moody lighting perfectly in keeping with the subject.-you're onto a winner!

Thanks Richard. The colour phase is moving along rather slow actually, and I'm not too sure of the palette I've chosen and I'm fast running out of time. I can see its gonna be a late night!

Hey Jon!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Man seeing you and the others schoolism guys doing caricarures makes me want to get back into it again! I've been doing a lot of anatomy and vehicle studies lately... I'll have to relapse into caricature again I think, you guys are kicking ass!

Really nice work on Anthony! More more more!!! :P
