i hope hot toys makes figures of this movie oneday. 

Sean Tiffany said...

Very cool and I loved the extended video at GumRoad. I also really dug the idea of you painting on the MDF board. It definitely adds a dimension to the painting and I really liked seeing the difference between that and the regular illustration board. Great stuff as always!

I can always do with a little Blade Runner and you've done a magnificent job here bud...

Fave from me for sure!

antonvandort said...

Generally speaking, your art always has a certain freshness over it. And this piece is no exception to that. Next to that, there is so much detail in this piece! I also like how detailed the character is compared to the blurred background. This works really well in this piece. One of your best pieces if you ask me!

Challenger2008 said...

Will you be making prints of this one available, Jeff? Customs duty in the UK stopped me from snapping up the original but it's a stunning piece.

tearsinraine said...

Wow that looks amazing! well done!

If you don't mind me asking a dumb question.. how did you make those cutouts you use (sorry I don't know the term) around 1:17 in the youtube video?

Really cool to watch your process and an awesome painting of one of my favorite movies!

Eduardo Franzoi said...

Very good!!

Eva Hopkins ... Thanks Eva!

David P. Geister ... Thanks David!

Dave Gaskin ... Thanks Dave, I'll defiantly be making prints. I'll let you know when they're available.

tearsinraine ... Thanks for the comment & question. The cut outs are little 'airbrush masks' I make out of printed copies. I scan the piece then print out a few copies, then cut them out with my utility knife. I'ts always seemed easier doing it this way rather than messing around with friskit or tracing paper.

Eduardo Franzoi ... Thanks!

ricardo-bruins ... Thank you!

DimRasha ... Thanks!

Love this. This is my favorite film of all time.

I always loved the scene with her, when she says "I am the Business" The light from the window and the smoke in the room, drives me crazy in a good way every time I see it
