Illustration Friday "Poise"

For this week's Illustration Friday topic of "Poise" I went with the Secret Agent who has total poise- James Bond. I have my TV going pretty much the whole time I'm working (as background noise) and they keep playing all these 1960's - 1980's James Bond movies. I love em! The older ones are pretty cartoony- great characters and great dialog. So I decided to come up with a animated movie poster for one. I went with Sean Connery in this image. It's funny, people are very passionate about who was and is the best Bond. I grew up with Roger Moore- and like him. This took about 7 hours and is a Illustrator/Photoshop collaboration.

Roger Moore? Dude, you are in a rather exclusive group there, I suspect...Wonderful lively take, as usual, and the previous dragon illo is an inspiration.

That's a very swanky image. I love it! Sean Connery's James Bond was always the best.

Valerie Lorimer said...

Love it! And you're right - who has more poise than Bond?!

Very cool Scott... I grew up with Roger Moore too but there's just something aboout Sean Connery's swagger that makes him ultra smooth!

Hey Scott, found your blog from a link a friend posted of this! This is RIGHT up my alley. Really into the retro vibe as well. If ya dont mind my asking which parts/effects did you use PS for? Im in Illustrator all day myself and have lightly dabbled taking stuff over to PS so was curious.

thanks & keep up the good work!
