This has to be one of my favourite films of recent years. The music grabbed me initially, but it's the mood that really sticks which is largely down to cinematographer Bruno Delbonnel.
I'd like to create a piece of concept art that captures this look of bleak Freewheelin' Bob Dylan style New York winters.
When I get to sketching, a familiar style continues to emerge with this rough sketchy line I find so attractive. My inclination is to want to clean and tidy things up, especially when it comes to an environment.
I also feel like I take ages over concept art images, but for this style to truly win over, it has to be captured quickly.
I've been learning loads about values and colour and all other kinds of technical guffery (not a word) recently that has definitely improved my work. I wonder if I was to work more rapidly again, like I always used to, how much has sunk in and will be evident. I kind of want to return to how I was creating artwork before I set off on this learning curve, to see what I look like now.
