Quid Pro Quo by miz-mezzy Quid Pro Quo by miz-mezzy
11 x 14" acrylic on canvas of Anthony Hopkins as Hannibal Lecter. I absolutely LOVE Hannibal Lecter and the whole book series. I felt Anthony Hopkins played one of the best representations of a book character in Silence of the Lambs and the later movies that were produced.

I really like this and browsing through some of your other links You have a keen eye for the many details in the face to the likeness is wonderful. My only critique is that in most of your work the characters seem somewhat younger than they were vs. when they were filmed. HOWEVER this is not a jab on my part in any way just a small observation, and it's not true with all of your work. Very well done. I wish I was able to paint as you do.

Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a nice long comment! A lot of the characters I do, I have a sort of childish glee for. I think that tends to override their actual age sometimes, because I see them in a sort of 'zomg awesome' light. It might also be struggling with placing values..I think I've been getting better at that. My latest painting (not done yet) portrays an older character that actually looks old, so at least I'm getting some practice with that! And I'll keep it in mind, but sometimes I don't have total control over the translation of reference to my mind to brush. That's the nice thing about painting :D

Yeah I understand perfectly, I don't paint but when I used to try my hand at drawing people realisticly I had the opposite problem. I remember in high school doing a self portrait and the finished product looked like me but a lot older.

Your paintings are wonderful! I love the shading and colors and the whole feel of them. The blue tying into his outfit and eyes really makes this stand out. The title adds that extra creepy factor too. Great work! :D

Thank you so much! It's funny, initially I had not planned to correlate the eyes and the background. I did the background first, and then the eyes last, with totally separate paint mixes. I really do love how it turned out though, it make the portrait pop and feel tied together at the same time. Thanks again ;)

Thank you! I tend to go with a more blended painting style, but you're right, I did use WAY bolder strokes on this than I normally do! Thanks for appreciating the painting and taking the time to comment ;)

Thank you so much!! This portrait is a little different than what I normally do as I tend to stay away from heavy shadows. But, for the character, I thought it would work. I'm really glad you like it so much and grateful for your comment! ;)
