Now you dont have to read this, but I felt like writing something.
This is my last portrait for my portfolio, before I ship it off to colleges, and work. Of course, I've done a King Kong piece, but nothing like this. Nothing that shared emotion, protection, or love for that matter. And, I've never really painted a girl before to be honest. And here, I wanted ot push my limits and show everyone what anyone can be capable of. Im sure the picture will have it's faults, and im not completely impressed with it, but I felt I did my job at capturing what I wanted to. Kong's protection over Anne Darrow. I wanted to show what I felt when I was in the theater, and to be honest, I've never been attached to a CGI character before, I mean, kind of with Gollum, but with Kong, I felt what he wanted. I felt that way before in a relationship, I didn't have planes shooting me, or I didn't have to wrestle 3 V-Rex's, but I went through a lot for a girl, and this is what Kong would do for her.
I draw for my passion, and even though I could come up with anything that struck my mind, but I wanted to do this. My second, and yes final, King Kong praise and picture. But this is it, this is my picture. Fully painted in Photoshop CS 2. I used reference of course, which can be found at the www.kingkongmovie.com website. I tried my hardest to capture the digital creation, but make this look like a photo. And im not there yet, but hopefully one day I will be. Enjoy.
and now..I give you:
