Brando Race...


This face is based on a photo of young Marlon Brando. I’m doing a project based on greek gods and have to convey “godliness” in a cartoony way, which is proving to be a fine balancing act. The finished piece is a lot cartoonier and mostly buried under a helmet. I love the great iconic faces of the old Hollywood stars, Brando, Robert Mitchum, Rock Hudson... Shia LeBoof, not so much...

Also, it was interesting to me that the more I simplified this icon, the more he reminded me of the Love and Rockets character; Rand Race. All hail Jamie Hernandez: the master of iconic reduction…
