"...The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one-day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V." ~ V's introduction.



V for Vendetta. I… love this film *___* I can’t believe I’ve never heard or seen the movie before. So I *had* to draw this after seeing it. Might draw more from that film (who knows, like the rest of my scattered projects xD). Now I need to check out the graphic novel (and now I finally know the origins of that Guy Fawkes mask).

I felt like drawing V in action - particularly in the scene shot underneath London's sewers executing his enemies in his fast-inhumane style. Except I added the roses in this one.

Also I don't know if the blood in the picture is enough for it to have a mature tag? Should be fine I hope.

My other artwork of V and Evey:

Indeed, this is a very interesting movie! Did you notice that when he throws the daggers, they spin around five times, and make a 'V' shape five times too? 


Also, "Submitted on: 5 October" :lol:

Oh boy, I can't honenstly say where I read that. ^^;
It very well possible that it was on Cracked, but it may as well been reposted to 9gag or something...

In general though, yes! I love reading little trivia like this.

Remember, remember the 5th of November; or was it December? It's been a long time since I've seen that movie.

Love the lighting in this pic. The cape, the hair, the mask and the leather all look incredible.

I should try the 2 light sources some time.

I like how the pattern of his fabric lightens his clothes around the arms, yet it darkens the highlights caused by the flames. What kind of blending options did you use to create that effect?
Reply
:iconeternalegend:
EternaLegend Featured By Owner Oct 6, 2013
I drew the fabric on a separate layer, then changed the layer to "overlay" and just played around with the opacity to make it look natural in the artwork.

:icondekler:
Dekler Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2013  Student Digital Artist
Oooh. What kind of colors did the overlay fabric have, shades of gray or black and white?
Reply
:iconeternalegend:
EternaLegend Featured By Owner Oct 8, 2013
I just used the colour black for the overlay fabric. The overlay layer just has the magic of blending it all in nicely. :)

Nicely done. I do like the film as well, but often feel that it is used for the wrong reasons by many. Your art is not one of them.
