Film noir by turtle-rn Film noir by turtle-rn
It's been a while I haven't painted an illustration without labouring first on the lineart. Here, I started directly with random blotches, shaping and detailing as ideas came along; an enjoyable change of pace although it took much much longer to sort it out in the end.
I used some face ref. (G.Tierney, L.Bacall) to get the 40's glamourous style I was aiming for.

Painter, PS.

Love this piece. It absolutelly contains the magical way of those golden times. The large and romantic eyes of womens, and the softness of skin. A very well done piece. Congratulations!!! :love:
