King Leonidas

I'm just really getting acquainted with Photoshop lately, so here's painting I did of King Leonidas from "300" It's quite interesting painting digitally, it's much faster, but the only weird thing is that it doesn't really exist, so that brings into question the intrinsic value of an original painting. Would you get more out of buying a print and hanging it on your wall? Or would an original one-of-kind painting have more significance? I don't know the answer, but it is an interesting debate in our quest for creating lasting images.

Here's a piece I did after seeing "Pan's Labyrinth" I love the originality of this film. Guillermo Del Toro is one of my favorite filmakers. He can go from pop Hollywood style stuff like "Blade II" and "Hellboy", but can still do his own thing with beautiful films like " The Devil's Backbone" and Pan's. Great stuff!
