IAN, FREEZE by Geewrecks IAN, FREEZE by Geewrecks
I was going with "Alan Grant Portrait" for the title, but it somewhat lacked punch... :P

This is part of one of the projects we had to do during my first semester of Graphic Design in college, a year ago. We had to get a photo of a person, keep only his head and then, using it as a guide, repaint it in three different styles: realism, expressionism and pop art. As you probably guessed, this is the realistic one! It's a portrait of Alan Grant, as played by Sam Neill in Jurassic Park. Here's the reference photo: [link]

Painted with acrylics.

Pop Art version: [link]

I probably won't upload the expressionist version... As it's just too damn ugly. :/

Wow that is great. Did you trace the picture or just free hand copied it? What techniques did you use with the acrylics? =D

Thank you so much! ^^

I used a projector to enlarge and trace the photo on the canvas (I lost most of the tracing with the first layers of paint, bah!). As for the rest, I didn't really used any speciel technique, only lots of different sized brushes, paper tissues and towels, a litle bit of water (for gradients, shadows and rapairing my screw ups), and lots of patience. :D

Alan: Ian, Freeze! *Throws hand over Alan's mouth.*

Me: NO! Ian keep running! *Crunchies and Evil Glares from Alan.*

Me: Don't hurt me.

Alan: RAWR.

Me: *Throws picture of Ellie toward Safe Bunker.*

Me (To myself as Alan runs to safety): I am so Smart.

-END-

Lolz, Amazing art. I love it. I have an unnatrual obsession over Sam Neill. (Alan Grant's my fave.) :Heart:

I know, he's doped up on Morphine the whole movie! Lolz. I bet he babbles about math in his sleep. Maybe you should ask Sarah. *dies laughing.* (If you didn't get that go to my dA gallery, and go to the Mature marked thing, I think you'll get the picture. ;p)

Thanks for accutally reading! Phew! Took my months, I can see Grant being like that too, he always hated Malcolm (and so did I)and having something against him would be so fun! (I know I would torture him!) But you have to admit, running around a Lodge shirtless would be funner than heck! *goes to random hotel and runs around shirtless yelling "save the Tree's" like a hippi*

Atleast, you aren't waving aroung a cardboard sign with the slogan written on it... That would be a tad ironic. XD

And to be parfecly honest, I'm more a Ian fan than an Alan one... That said, I'm still a fan of the two guys.

*covers in fear*
