OMG! It felt like ages to get this painting done (approx 35h I guess) _^_ But I’m kinda satisfied with the outcome.
Inspiration came to my mind after listening to the Assassin’s Den podcast with Adrian Hough. As far as I know, both Adrian and Noah provided mocap for their characters, which might explain why I see actors’ facial features in animations. And if you don’t, you must be totally blind
That’s how the whole idea has arisen.
I also wanted to give it a 18th century painting’s feel (like paint cracks, but pic is too small to notice them)
I’m working on Noah’s portrait in Connor’s outfit too (:
