Here we have Rick Grimes (as played by Andrew Lincoln) from The Walking Dead, my latest portrait of a well known figure from film/TV. I started this around 16th October 2017 thinking I could possibly finish in time for the premiere of the new season of The Walking Dead (Season 8) around a week later, a deadline I missed. In time for Halloween, then? Nope. OK, Christmas it had to be. Nope! Finally I got it done for season 8’s re-start after its usual mid-season break (Feb 26th, I think). So, four months in the making using my trusty little Wacom tablet and Photoshop CS6.
I went into a stupid amount of detail for this and was kind of regretting that I’d started it ‘cos it was taking up so much time. But, in the end, I was really pleased and quite proud of it. Not sure I’ll ever do such a thing again. Next time, I’m going to try a looser, rougher style. Well, that’s the plan…… 😀
I’m outta here.
