Portrait - Dexter Morgan by KimiSz Portrait - Dexter Morgan by KimiSz
Here follows another quick study done in a few spare hours. Now I decided to take a aproach to my favorite character of a TV series, Dexter Morgan, played by the amazing Michael C. Hall!

In this case I decided to take a frame of an episode that I liked and played a little bit. I used a different approach this time, B&W with a single monocromatic hue to give a some mood to the scene.

For those unfamiliar with the character, Dexter is a serial killer who works in the Miami Metro Police as an bloodstain pattern analyst at crime scenes. So this show is full of moral ambiguities and elaborate plots. Its thrilling! :D

The reference was taken from a frame of an episode of the series "Dexter." The painting was done in Photoshop CS4 with a Wacom Tablet Intuos4.

Dexter is produced by Showtime and is based on the novels by Jeff Lindsay.

Pra mim também. Eu mudei muito depois que vi toda série, no sentido de prioridades, de formas de interpretar certas coisas, como relacionamento, vida social... Dexter é F***!!!

Ooh a Dexter portrait, he's cool B-) although I really don't get how this would work in real, with the (I would think) quite obvious I-work-with-the-police-and-kill-every-bad-guy-that-gets-away link :D But cool portrait of him anyway :)
Can't give any clever Photoshop remarks except for the fact that it looks good :D

True, I dunno if this character would "work" in real life too, but what a hell, he's cool anyway lol

Gostei da iluminação! Ficou bem legal, só não sei se o fundo branco bate muito com a iluminação vermelha forte.

Forte Abraço

Olá, obrigado pelo comentário!

Bom, no caso do background, ele foi pensado em função do tema original do Dexter mesmo! Muitos dos pôsteres do seriado são em fundo branco/vermelho para enfatizar o vermelho do sangue! :)

Grande abraço!
