Now with speed painting video: Broken - Photoshop Process ~ 1 hour

Another Photoshop speedy painting done whilst watching Donnie Darko for the hundredth time. Probably around 1 hour all up - lots of fiddling at the end.

Also tried to just use one brush for this - and did so except for the blood hanging under his chin.

Guess the pose and hair is probably inspired by The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo? (Thought I'd call it and save you the trouble :3)

i can see the 'girl with the tat' pose in this. (i totally loved that character btw.)
but for me, it looks like a fantastic surreal take on neil gaiman's sandman.
the hair, the shadowy face, the pinpoint light in his eye.
it's morpheus dude. no doubt. sandman.
AustenMengler's avatar
Yes! Totally see Sandman in this. I started reading that comic but never got round to finishing it. Must do that! Cheers :)
