Congratulations, Euan, that is one fabulous portrait. The golden tones speak to the romance and nostalgia I love about the character, and while that set square jaw and determined steely gaze speak to the hero ideal he represents, I note a slight lift to the left eyebrow that shows the vulnerability Harrison brought to the role, as if he doesn't completely believe the hero schtick, but--GULP--he'll do what he's gotta do...
oh yes - what a great idea for a character jam! great timing to with the new movie and recent anniversary of Radiers, which is such a feel good, comfy movie. pretty much perfect i think. can't wait for the new one!
roboyd: and you choose a classic moment to start the thread. an interesting mix of graphic black lines and colouring! robbieobi: only seen a little bit of Bradstreet, but it certainly feels like him. so he basically takes a photo and turns it into a Chiaroscuro and then draws over it? doh: nazis...i hate those guys. perfect Indy concept! thaddeous: i love that poster and you captured the feel of it. but yeah, just have a look at that face and they way the hat shadow is laying over it and i think you'll have something. haha - love that line from the movie, and your noses and hands are just great. hellboyone; yes indeed - if Mignola ever did a Raiders cover it would certainly look like this. it just needs a few solid black shapes running through maybe? spx186: oh yes, i would love to see an animated Indy and i would love to see more of these from you! euan: i think that's the most refined piece we've seen from you -- great job. you got the Struzan look down pat too. i think the other comments say it all my friend...really outstanding and by far my fav of the lot:-) drunken artist: that's very dynamic. you should def finish this up!
went for the 'ole fake pulp cover mockup thingy, with the focus being those great oversized shadows they used in the series.

Thanks to Cory and Daniel for the kind words - I guess I'll have to copy Drew Struzan's style more often. It's actually fairly easy to do.
daniel cox - Cracking mock pulp cover .I was watching Raiders again just last night, and the large shadow thing is spot on. It really is a perfect movie. I'm hoping you'll be back with more faux pulp for next month's Pulp Jam.
