What Kind of Bird Are You? by alicexz What Kind of Bird Are You? by alicexz

PRINT AVAILABLE HERE
Limited edition of 80



"No. I said... what kind of bird are you?"
Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

A portrait on display at my cinema-inspired solo show MOMENTS, which opened June 7th at NYC's Bottleneck Gallery.

I really really stared at a ton of old-timey portrait-paintings (John Singer Sargent, Vermeer, etc) for inspiration to do this piece. I wanted to get a traditional media feel and do the best job possible with this lovely moment from Moonrise Kingdom (when Sam Shakusky first lays eyes on Suzy Bishop!) Digital painting from references sta.sh/09o5dua96nx, many many hours, Adobe Photoshop + Cintiq 21UX tablet.
STEP-BY-STEP PAINTING PROGRESS: soon | REBLOG ON TUMBLR: alicexz.tumblr.com/post/511708…
