Mr. Tom Ripley by TomsGG Mr. Tom Ripley by TomsGG
Mr. Tom Ripley :-)

this (Hopefully) is my entry for :iconmr-ripley:'s Draw Tom Ripley contest. Here:[link]

Matt Damon is such an great actor and wanted to draw him forever. This contest was the perfect reason to do that. :D

My reference picture was a movie-screenshot.
It's the scene (for me really remarkable) where Tom is earsdropping on Marge and Dickie.
His face is just so....i don't know maybe a little perfidiously, diabolic??? but you feel for him.....he just wants to be liked and/or be somebody else.

The Talented Mr. Ripley is a really great movie. So let me just give you my two favourite quotes:

I always thought it would be better, to be a fake somebody... than a real nobody.

Don't you just take the past and put it in a room in a basement and lock the door and never go in there? That's what I do, And then you meet someone special and all you want to do is to toss them the key and say; open up, step inside, but you can't, because it's dark, There's demons and if anybody saw how ugly it is. I keep wanted to do that, fling the door open just let light in and clean everything out.


Hope you like it.

Tools: my much loved wacom tablet and photoshop. 18hours of work.
I tried a cooler colorscheme this time. i think i've managed.
