The Godfather

An offer I couldn't refuse...

The promotion director at Channel 43 asked me to do an illustration to help promote the Broadcast Premiere of the Godfather. The artwork was used extensively in TV guide, newspaper, and other printed materials.

The original art is about 18" x 24" and is done in pencil and oil paint. After completing the pencil sketch I coated the board with clear acrylic gel then did a quick wash of tones over the drawing. When that dried I brought out the details and highlights with opaque paint.
