This sketch was inspired by one of my favorite animated films in recent years; The Book of Life.
A gaming session with my brother-in-law (Crysis 3, if you’re curious) ended up being the perfect opportunity to quickly test out the Procreate app and the Bamboo stylus.
Every so often when I’m watching a movie I get the urge to sketch, to capture that particular moment in the film.
As I was watching Road to Perdition the other night I quickly grabbed a notebook, one usually reserved for actual note taking and sketched this from one of the many pivotal scenes in the movie, this one showing the main character and his son traveling to Chicago.
I hope to do more of these, in this style, over time and sharing them and hopefully next time I’ll use higher quality materials, but that said I feel as though some of the charm is attributed to the lo-fi feel of it.
