Javier Bardem Profile by Marker-Mistress Javier Bardem Profile by Marker-Mistress
I was working like a madwoman getting this piece done for the last three days. Not only that but I spent a lot of money...over $50 on markers alone just to get enough Black.

This is one of my favorite portraits of him by far... :heart: :heart:



11x14 Bristol
Prismacolor Markers Cool Grey set
Prismacolor Metallic Gold (for siggy)
Photoshop CS3

Wow. If Les Miserables were ever made into a film that wasn't terrible and made some effort to be accurate to the novel, Bardem would make the PERFECT Javert.

One crit I have is that the lower part of his throat seems to be bulging too much, just below the Adam's apple, which also looks exaggerated. Perhaps it would have helped to accentuate the large tendons in his neck a little more.

I like the darkening you did to his eyebrow; his gaze looks more smoldering than in the original photo.
