What is Creative Mondays?
Monday’s are always a drag. The start of a new week, you have to go back to that routine of going to bed early/get up early. If (like me) you have to commute then you prepare for that long journey into work and that long journey back for the first time after a nice two day break.
So to kick off those lousy Mondays, I’m going to get my creative mind flowing in a positive way. Creative Mondays. A chance for me to show off something unfinished or finished that I’ve been working on throughout the previous week.”
Okay so looking at this week and last week’s post, you might think there’s a ‘punishment’ theme going on but I assure it was all by accident. I had just watched the Coen brothers remake of ‘True Grit’ (with the awesome Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn) which is one of the rare films that I think a remake actually works as well as the original. I was inspired and wanted to create an image that I saw captured in the film.
The scene lent itself in particular to my style of silhouette design and so a quick sketch later and some Photoshop work and here we have it!
I was playing around with the colour on this piece and put together an alternate that I quite like.
