Jason and the Argonauts

I came across a still fromĀ Jason and the Argonauts, which is a movie that had a profound influence on my formative years. I’d recommend seeing it for the Ray Harryhausen animation alone. So here’s my process.

And followed by some ink wash.

Helmets, hats, masks; all manner of facial coverings interest me. Samurai helmets are particularly riveting to me because of the artistry involved. Additionally, the face coverings emote dramatically, lending themselves to beautiful shadows.
