Leonardo Dicaprio

For my own amusement . . . I loved Inception and wanted to paint Leo. The point of this painting wasn't to paint everything hyper-realistic, but rather to develop my illustration style a little bit more . . . intentionally keeping areas loose and more painterly, but mostly to have fun.

Detail . . .

THANKS for the support my friend! You rock! And congrats on the Digital Art Masters book. The art world benefits from your input. And it was fun seeing this Leo piece go from sketch to finish.

P.S. When you see the book, remember that the castle stairs painting was being done while you were here - and the chains on the wall were YOUR idea. Cool!

Among other things Jason, you are one of the best I've seen getting the elusive 5 O'clock shadow to read realistically. And it only gets better from there...

Very nice work! I was looking forward to your completion of this one. Thanks for the post. I saw the movie after you did the first post! I really liked the movie. I think he was still dreaming because his totem never stopped spinning.

I love how you render hair! Each strand looks like it has its own place on the head. Hair-TASTIC!

nice work! had the same idea as me, sat down to do some sketches of Leo after seeing that movie as well

i do prefer the slightly more loose illustration style, has so much more character than something rendered to the nth degree.
