This was the first speculative character vignette where I wanted to depict a more dramatic appearance that was more than just an evenly lit colour guide. I wanted these to look like graphics as much as illustrations and have the heavy contrast lighting of photographs.
It has remained in a small frame for the last twenty five years and is stacked somewhere in my loft.
There is also a small alternative pistol image that was done shortly afterwards that electronically replaced this original one.
