Alex: A Clockwork Orange

Posted on by Danny Coyne

I learned a bit more about the movie and book while making this. I had liked the original sketch I'd done but could never make it work. This turned out to be a tough one actually, but I've learned I really need to up my painting levels. Despite the theatrical language and costume from the scene the image here shows Alex contemplative and sinister, but quick to rebuke his brother Dim 'for being a bastard with no manners.'

I think I just like the simplicity of the eyes, but couldn't replicate it faithfully to paint. It could never work on something with a focal point like that! What was I thinking..?
