Detective Patfield by 2dforever Detective Patfield by 2dforever
2D Forever

Whilst creating a repeating pattern image for work purposes, I found myself inspired to do this.

It's not 100% accurately measured out, but it could pretty much repeat over and over - a man with a gun behind him, with a gun behind that man, etc etc.

Repeating images aside, I had a lot of fun making this. There are a few different ways you could look at it, so I'll leave that bit up to you.

Totally inspired by fantastic old film noir - when trenchcoats weren't just for flashers and insurance sales men always solved crimes... for some reason.

I would really appreciate some critique on this piece. I got to a stage where I felt it could be improved but just ran out of things to do. Any thoughts? :) Thanks in advance.

Hi

Can I use this image in the background of a design for mystery books?

Hi there!

Yes of course you can, however I ask that you give some form of credit. So it could be my name (Tom Waterhouse) or my website (2dforever.com) written somewhere near the picture.

Thanks!

I love this image!
I was just wondering if i could use it for a banner?
I'm not making any money off of it.
And i'd of course put your copyright on the bottom :)

Wow, amazingly well done!
The only thing I find somewhat odd is the position of his eyes in relation to the nose

It was based on my friends face, so he's to blame for that ;)
I'm glad you like it otherwise, thank you!

The only thing I could think of being improved is that I part of me wants to see this shot(painted) from a slightly lower perspective, where the shadows are really looming over the people. Somehow that totally says film noir to me. Or Hitchcock. I'm not sure I've ever seen a real film noir so I may just be making stuff up now. :paranoid: I really love this piece! the first thing that drew me in was the cheekbone shadows!
