So...Cara posted my postcard submission for the Anthropomorphic Mail Art Project! I'm so happy!
I received a...wait for it...deer head. WHAT. Immediately, I thought "Hannibal" because...I mean...duh - nightmare stag, right?!
I used this handsome photo of Mads Mikkelsen as my reference for the nightmare stag.
Here are some progress shots of how I did his plaid suit. Of course, it had to be a 3-piece suit.
Only the finest for Dr. Lecter.
I had to somehow include the most incredible curtains that ever existed as a background piece. The red marker's cap was a darker red but when I started coloring, it was more pinky-fuchsia than anything. Meh - I went with it.
I also had to add some blood because...it's Hannibal. Lots of blood. And you know me, I love blood.
The word bubble says: "Tell me about your dreams, Will Graham" but you have to imagine it in Mads' best Hannibal voice.
Not gonna lie, this project took a darker turn than I thought but I'm happy with the way it came out because it's Hannibal-related and I dig that. I hope you guys like it, too!
