I've been very unhappy with my classic movie artwork lately -- it's basically just been plain old pencil drawings of glamour shots or outline-style pop art paintings. I've wanted to do something really different for a while and finally came up with something I like.
This is mixed media and actually ended up taking me much more time, and was a lot harder, than the art I'm used to doing but I love the outcome so much!! I think it's completely different from anything I've done before, and it finally gives me the opportunity to combine classic movies with REAL art. Not that my sketches weren't real art, but I just feel like I'd be comfortable submitting this style to galleries, and I wouldn't have with my other artwork.
Sorry, I'm just so excited about this! I want to go do another one now! I have another screenshot from Petulia picked out. I still haven't titled this yet, but I'm working on it..
