Black Swan by DiegoBernardo Black Swan by DiegoBernardo
After watching all the films nominated for the Oscars 2011, I felt the urge to draw some realistic pictures of my favourite movies. One of them was Black Swan, an intriguing and psychotic work of art. The Oscar-winning performance of Natalie Portman is beyond words, one of the most powerful in the cinema History (well, that's my opinion ;)).
To practise realistic drawings, I chose a promotional image from the film [link] , with Natalie dancing, adding two black wings on her back. I started with the skin, adding shadows, and then, the opposite with the dress: from the black background, I added the brighter details. It was funny to do, in three sessions. I'm happy with the picture because it transmits an elegant dynamism, and a great contrast between the dark and bright zones.
"Black Swan" is property of Fox Searchlight Pictures.
Oh, and it isn't a paintover.

Después de ver todas las películas nominadas a los Oscar 2011, sentí la necesidad de hacer algún dibujo realista de mis películas favoritas. Una de ellas fue Cisne Negro, una verdadera obra de arte, intrigante y psicótica. Faltan palabras para describir la actuación de Natalie Portman, ganadora del Oscar, en uno de los papeles más impactantes de la historia del cine (bueno, esa es mi opinión;))
Para seguir practicando con dibujos realistas, elegí una imagen promocional de la película [link] , con Natalie bailando, y le añadí dos alas negras en la espalda. Empecé con la piel, añadiendole sombras y, a continuación, lo contrario con el vestido: desde el fondo negro, fui añadiendo los detalles más brillantes. Fue muy divertido de hacer, en tres sesiones. Estoy contento con la imagen, ya que transmite un dinamismo elegante, y un gran contraste entre las zonas claras y las oscuras.
"Cisne Negro" es propiedad de Fox Searchlight Pictures.
Ah, y no está calcado.
