So after choosing to create a drive cover and looking at the film research I have drawn some pictures from the film screenshots. I thought as most of the Little White Lies covers are hand drawn i should explore this avenue first. The are only few still images from the film that i could find with a portrait image of Ryan Gosling so i started to draw them.
The fist drawing came out pretty well and had a nice focal point in the sunglasses. They really drew attention to that point on the drawing. I like the composition with the steering wheel in the shot as well, as it ties in with the fact that he is a driver. The second picture i started but didn’t finish because i didn’t like that way it was headed. Initially i was thinking to draw just an outline image of his head with only the glove in full detail but i didn’t like it as i continued so i stopped.
The first drawing i will follow up and see if i can create a computer generated version.
