NightWatch at ComicCon

Share

Rembrandt’s characters do cosplay at night watch.

I tried to keep at as close as possible to the original characters. Like the white and black clothes of the men in front, turning it into darth vader and a stormtrooper. The red clothing to the characteristical orange/red of the bodywarmer of Marty McFly of ‘Back to the Future’ and the position of HarleyQuinn, mimicking the body language of the man she’s representing in the original painting.
The man holding a shield became instantly Captain America and the high hatter became mad hatter.
I kept de facial expressions of most intact and tried to keep the vibe of the original painting throughout the entire piece.

I also made the filter of cracked painting myself.

Wow

This is a great idea you have here. I have setup many cons in my time so I know how they can be, so that was a good way of showcasing what happens and the good times people have dressing up in cosplay. I love the additon of the coca cola and the comic-con bag so you know they are chilling there and having a good time. The coloring and blending with your brushes is wonderful. I do love the darker tones of color to bring out that con feeling of low light and crowds. I think your diversity in the people is also good and shows that we all love to be fans together.

~~THINGS TO IMPROVE ON~~
Nothing to change, love this as it is.
