Jennifer Lawrence


This is my portrait of Jennifer Lawrence an American actress from  Kentucky. This is my third portrait of her, with each portrait I continue to adjust my style to get the look I want. In this portrait I added a shadow behind her to make her look like she is in front of the background. This was one of the tricks Patrick Nagel used to make his portraits stand out.

Margot Robbie


This is my portrait of Margot Robbie an Australian actress that stared in two summer movies. One was The Legend of Tarzan she played Lady Greystoke or Jane. I was very impressed by her portrayal of a strong self confident Jane. The second is Suicide Squad she plays Harleen Quinzel / Harley Quinn a super villain. I have not seen this movie yet but I am sure she does a great job being a super villain.

I have seen may illustrations done of her as Harley Quinn but it really is not my style. So I found this photograph of her and thought it would make a great portrait. The dress was a bit of a challenge at first I was just going to make it one color, but decided to try to make it by using the brush tool for the lager white patterns and the pencil tool for the finer lines.

This is the original photo from Margot Robbie daily on Pinterest. Margot Robbie




Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart


This is a portrait of Ingrid Bergman and Humphrey Bogart. From the 1942 film “Casablanca” one of the most iconic films from the Golden Age of Hollywood. A romantic drama that focuses on an American expatriate who must choose between his love for a woman and helping her Czech Resistance leader husband escape the Vichy-controlled city of Casablanca to continue his fight against the Nazis.

In this portrait I carefully traced the original black and white promotional photograph from the film. I then added color and stylized the images producing an original work of art. I hope to introduce to a new generation great movies they may overlook because they are not in color or have a a lot of special effects.
