This is my attempt at a Sin City painting style. I really love the comics (and also the movie) and I think the painting style in the comics is quite unique. Frank Miller worked with a very hard contrast, only black and white and very few transitions/hatching.

It was really a fun quick project and the only difficulty was where to place the white and to get the white covering the black entirely.



The text on the base is from a very late chapter of the comic where Marv kills a priest in retaliation to the murder of his beloved Goldie.

Hope you like it. :)

Edit: Because many ask for unedited pictures, I added another picture without any image editing. Hope this helps. :)

    I am so much looking forward to see this guy in real in the future. I am not sure if the photos can transport the painted figure pretty good! Great idea and a very cool execution!

      Have to admit, the pictures were a bit difficult. Some black parts are a bit gray on the pics… :/ I think a gave my cam a hard time with this project. :D

    i reaaly got problems to realize what is painted and what is graphics. The project itself is damn cool - no question about that.
