Lee Marvin

It was suggested on my illustration Facebook page, after I posted the Humphrey Bogart piece, that I try my hand at Lee Marvin. Since I had never done an illustration of him, and he was a perfect subject for the rough-edged, "tough guy" look of the Bogie piece, I figured why not?

I knew I wanted Marvin's white hair to really stick out, so I had to use a grey-ish tone for the skin. It kind of makes him look like he's made of granite, which he kinda was.
