Dames and Dandies - Monochrome



A Film Noir styled scene of the classic private eye getting a desperate visit by some blubbering client. In this case, though, it's no hysterical dame but a foppish dandy.

Might not be quite done: need to tweak the lighting a bit more and put up a coloured version. Otherwise, it's at wallpaper size and ratio: perfect for widescreen monitors.

A full scene for a change: decided to actually do a background and multiple characters in the same piece. Shocking! Many points I don't think about it, though: really need to work on my soft shading skills in Photoshop, and backgrounds. And linework. Ugh . . .

On a side note:
Hey kids! Can you spot the stereotypical office furnishing from any typical Film Noir private eye flick? Find them all!

Hey Cod, I gotta give you props for doing up a background on this one. Most of your pieces don't have that and neither do mine. It's hard!
