Very cool! Orson was the man. Just curious, did you do a finished piece and scan it in, or did you do it in pieces and put it together on the computer? I'd have put it together in P-shop but I'm pretty deadline oriented and would do it the quickest way possible. No matter! Looks very nice.

Hi Dominic

Jeff - Orson was def 'the man' , everything was drawn on a single sheet of paper then scanned , though sometimes I draw all the elements on separate sheets. Time does usually determine that.

Craig - thanks man!

Sarah - thanks, def check this movie out if you're a fan of classic 'noir' , it's worth it.

Frasier - thanks for stopping by , Merci !

UrbanBarbarian said...

Nice! You captured the feel of that genre quite nicely!

lotusgreen said...

your beautiful work has some deep roots in the japonisme movement, don't you think? right down to the way you do the date.

Coincidentally I'm listening to Orson Wells radio plays on Mercury Theatre while cleaning up a board.

Dominic Bugatto said...

josh said...

hey! I like the brushpen on this one....recently I found this crazy refillable japanese kind. what do you use?

Dominic Bugatto said...

roland - thanks!

josh - thanks man, I use a japanese Pentel GFKP brush pen , it's pretty awesome . It's cartridges are pigmented perm ink which is a bonus too. It's sometimes called a 'pocket brush pen'.

Excellent. I LOVE this movie. Rita Hayworth's hair in that movie was amazing. The hair alone deserved an Oscar.
