Twelve Angry Men

Finally finished the 'Twelve Angry Men' illustration. Lost count of how many hours I spent on this, but I'm happy with the end result, so it was worth it. The overall time spent is around 2 weeks solid work. I could probably have re-made the film in the same time. It was fun doing the reference shoot for this, climbing around my living room, sprawling over the coffee table etc.


Here's some detail:

This is absolutely BRILLIANT. You've really captured the spirit of the thing. I'd love to see this piece in monochrome too! I haven't looked at all of your blog, but I know I'm going to be a regular visitor from now on. Bill Murray is great too!

kev gave me a link to your blog and I'm so glad he did. The 12 angry men piece is outstanding, and I'm not just saying that because it's my favourite film too! Two weeks very well spent in my opinion...think I know what DVD to watch this weekend! Will bookmark your blog right now.

Thanks for the kind responses. Maybe I should do another of my favourite black and white films, 'The Apartment' with Jack Lemmon and Shirley MacLaine. Another one that deserves to be watched a few times over.
