' The Guy In The Corner'

PASTEL ON VELOUR
18" X 12"

If a copy would cheer up a wall then please take one, no prints are available ( the full sized image is watermark free ).

This is a portrait of Morgan Freeman in the role of Eddie 'Scrap-Iron' Dupris from the film 'Million Dollar Baby'.
Morgan is one of my favourite actors and this pose gives a great sense of his character.
Unfortunately I won't be able to catch my favourite part of him, which is his distinct and powerful voice.

The drawing hopefully depicts Morgan in his role as the trainer and corner man in the movie.
I tried to get a sense of a classic portrayal without much detail and used colour for atmosphere.

beautiful work it is a little loose which I love about your work- very freeing and at the same time you have captured Morgan brilliantly. I think you really did capture his character and I thnk I can even hear his voice in my head =) Wonderful!

yes, his voice is awesome. He is one of my favorite actors and that movie was so great. You did a fine job here. Really hit the nail on the head with this one. If Morgan Freeman never sees this it would be a shame.
