The becoming of Gollum by NakadaiShimada The becoming of Gollum by NakadaiShimada
This is another practice piece for :iconsuzanne-helmigh:s Film study contest. A little more of a relaxed pace this time, about 3-3.5 hours, again, it's not 100% perfect, but again, I really enjoyed painting it, and learned a lot from the process, a lot of re-angling and re-positioning early on did a lot for the structure of the whole thing.

Please check out my other warm up pieces:
Alien: [link]
Kingdom of Heaven: [link]
The Fifth Element: [link]

3-3.5 hours PS CS5 + Wacom tablet.

Let me know what you think guys, hope ya dig.

Ed.

Wonderful. The detail, especially the hair, is top notch. You've also captured the torture in his face brilliantly.

Absolutely loved painting this one! Really wanted to test myself, and this moment has such depth and a certain feeling to it, the tortured face was especially pleasing to get down. Cheers!

Damn this is good. You captured the dreadful emotion so beautifully!. On a small note a really like the slightly off focus effect on the forehand it makes it feel like a movie screenshot.
