Nosferatu

After watching FW Murnau's Nosferatu again, I just had to draw Count Orlok. ...then I painted over a couple of earlier attempts I had made at this pose.
1 ink drawing, 2 goauche paintings.

This one looks a bit like that bald fella in LOST.

    Max, now I'll have to mention the second one because it'll feel left out :D

  3. I like the unblendedness of the second one and the tone in the third one but my favourite is the first one because I can see both of the eyes. http://eimhinssecretblog.blogspot.com/2010/05/ive-had-bad-day.html I made him tooo!

  4. Yeah, you did it first though.


    FIRST!

    and it's strange how much of a difference seeing the other eye makes.
    C'est drôle la vie.
