George Romero

I had an incredibly hectic week, so I didn't have time to work on anything too ambitious, but I did make the time to do another Hot Seat-style portrait, this time of legendary director George Romero, whose new film, Survival of the Dead, comes out this month.

I originally did the portrait of Romero in full color, but when I added the zombie-ish shapes and the sickly green background, it worked better when he was in black and white so I changed it. The only hint of color I kept the reflected green highlights on his glasses.

I'm really happy with how this one came out, and doing these pseudo-Hot Seats are a lot of fun, even if I do an actual one, like I did this week (come back on Thursday!).
