If you didn't read my last post, this is Lon Chaney from 'London After Midnight'. It was directed by Tod Browning ('Dracula' and 'Freaks') and was released in 1927. Unfortunately, the film doesn't exist anymore. The last known print perished in a 1967 MGM vault fire. I've always found 'the man in the beaver-skin hat' (as he was known in the film) to be a thoroughly creepy character, and a great icon from the silent film era.
I painted it in Adobe Photoshop without an under-drawing. I normally do a pencil drawing first. But this time, I painted it straight. Then I add filters and effects to make it resemble an 1860's daguerreotype.
Until next time
