Gene Tierney

Decided to try doing something non-digital for a change, just pencils, pens, markers and a layout pad.

I’ve been watching a lot of Gene Tierney films of late (Laura, Leave Her To Heaven, Whirlpool, The Ghost & Mrs Muir, Thunderbirds etc) and also reading her auto-bio. This was quicker to do than I’d expected, I had to leave the imperfections and mistakes in and just get on with it.

  1. Imperfections and mistakes? Where? And, why did you “have to leave them in”? The only iffy spot I see might be the hair portion on the lower left. Shading might be subject to opinion. But, it’s decent overall. This quality of a piece would probably take me…16 hours?…to complete. I’d probably fuss over the pencil for the first 8 and sweat through the inking the next:P I struggle with confident strokes. But, I am a mean idea/sketch guy.

  2. Thanks 😉 – the imperfections I see are in some of the shading, the nose isn’t right (it looks hairy!) – overall I was very very pleased with it, the bolder marker strokes in the hair worked well, that was something I’ve been trying to get more confident with!
