Shutter Island

I don't know the last time I was this excited to see a movie. Maybe The Lord of the Rings. I'm a big fan of Leonardo Dicaprio and Martin Scorsese. And, when they team up...better yet. Patrizzia and I saw the preview of Shutter Island when we at the movies the last time, and we have been excited ever since.

So, for tomorrow...on my birthday...I get to see it with Patrizzia while my Mom babysits for a couple hours. Joy.

This was a quick sketch of the movie poster. I kinda fudged the actual island part because I lost a little interest in that section. But, you get the gist. I get more pumped doing portraits..trying to get the likeness correct. Not too easy to do all the time.

Anyway, I think we'll love it, and I can't wait.

On a side-note, the poster image that I used as a reference for this drawing was very high in contrast. Right after I finished this, I saw the ad in the newspaper, and that image was so much better. There was more of his face shown. This one was pretty dark. But, it works anyhow. Oh, and I also used Photoshop to paint in more of the black background...and make the gray bottom area. I just felt that it added more "pop" to the image.

Finished Size: about 4.5" x 5.5"

I've been wanting to rent this flick, is it as good as you hoped?
