Danny Trejo by SallyDoesArts Danny Trejo by SallyDoesArts
This is an acrylic painting (for my sister's boyfriend's birthday) of the actor Danny Trejo. It kind of turned out in a similar way to Telltale Games art style in the Walking Dead arcade game, like, normal skin tone and kind of drawn style shading.

I took a bit of a break from painting before I did this one, just a small break, I think it was because I was focusing too much on what I thought I should do rather than thinking about what I wanted to do. So basically I have a couple of half started paintings that will possibly never be finished, but sh*t happens.

This one took a few hours. It is A4.

Thanks for looking.

Oh! I have a bad habit of not saving the link to the reference image, I will have to start doing that. I just tend to save the image, print it out and then spend 5-10 minutes when I've finished it trying to find the image I was working from so people can see it online.

Here is the link, the photo is by a dude by the name of Brian Chernicky, without whose awesome photography this wouldn't have been the same: [link]

Good lord, he's certainly aged a fair bit in that photo... then again, what does that matter when he's a really cool actor? (Seen him in movies like Spy Kids a while back, as an extra in Anchorman and so on, sure there's plenty of other good ones).

As for the painting, you've stuck really well to the original reference and breathed new life into the subject. Everything looks relatively well done, especially the eyes and bitchin' moustache he sports.

Overall, an interesting and well-created take on one of the most hard-working, yet not entirely appreciated actors in Hollywood. He has an amazing story to tell, and you've shown exactly that through the lines on his face and the overall expression. Great job! =)

Thanks bro. I don't know if you saw my comment in your art work thread a few weeks ago but since then I spoke to a couple of people about copyright (a graphic artist and someone who runs an art site) and it seems like if it is stylised enough you shouldn't need to ask for permission. Tattoos are a funny one though, because I guess it is more of a design you're using as a reference than a person. It really is a shame about your Bendo image.
