Indiana Jones by artsytarts Indiana Jones by artsytarts
Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones, in all his glory!
I believe this picture is from Raiders of the Lost Ark. Not sure though.

This happened partly because I really need to practise my portrait drawing + colouring and partly for fun. :)
But mostly because I don't know how to draw faces properly. Or hats. Or how to do proper colours.
So it was a great exercise

I don't know how long this took in hours, but I worked on this for five evenings, on and off. I'm so happy how it turned out :)
And it's only the second portrait I ever did of Mr Ford, so I'm even more happy about it.

Drew the sketch on paper first and coloured it in Photoshop and then slapped a filter over it, cause I felt it still needed something.

Here's the reference picture: images2.fanpop.com/images/phot…

Comments are muchly appreciated! :D

And now I need some sleep.

zzzz...

I think the eyes are too big, that makes him looks young.

I think you succeeded pretty well in this^^ Althought it very realisticly drawn, I still can see your personal touch trough it, which is weird, because just now I see it's a digital painting :o It really looks like a traditional one at the first sight! You tricked my brains! :p

Aww thank you so much!
You think my style shines through? Hmm... Now you say it, I think you're right XD I never looked at it that way!
Yeah photoshop is pretty amazing in that way. If you use the right brushes, you can almost simulate paint on canvas.

Yeah, indeed.... It really keeps stunning me everytime I see it :XD:
If you're ever planning to make an 'making of vid', let me know, I'd sure be intrested to see how you can build up something like this from an (almost) blank page!

You should be proud! It's amazing! Ahhh I love them too... It breaks my heart continually that my mother had a chance to date and sleep with Harrison Ford. And she turned him down.
I could've been Harrison Fucking Ford's daughter!!!!! :o

What are you talking about? Don't know how to draw faces or hats. Pah! This is wonderful :D I have always been a long standing fan of Indiana Jones (very nostalgic of my childhood for some reason... what does that say?:O) so this has made me very happy.

Hm, can't say much on real critique. Sorry about that. I'm just a lowly little writer who sometimes dabbles in photography; so I don't really know much about this. Just take me on my word that this is great. :pat:

Well this might be the only hat I've ever managed to draw properly :D Maybe cause of its absulute awesomeness!
Me too! I've always loved the movies and I was thrilled when Indy 4 came out a few years ago! I'd never been as excited to go to the cinema before that. And I've also got an Indy costume with whip and hat and all. I'm an absulute FAN :D

Doesn't matter! It's always nice to get comments anyway. Thank you very much!

Awe, I was so disappointed in the new Indy. Despite Harrison Ford being awesome and such, and despite me being a mega sci-fi geek, I couldn't bring myself to enjoy the concept. Which is sad.

Haha Indi costume, oh god!!! That's fantastiche :D I would love to own a whip (for innocent reasons, of course, haha). That would be the COOLEST thing to do during my spare time. Go into the yard and whip the shit out of things. People would be so impressed/horrified. :XD:

After thinking long about how I comment on this piece of art, I came up with the best solution.

"Nazis. I hate these guys."

And it's really well done. :)
