V by reformedoverlord V by reformedoverlord
Drawing of a poster from V for Vendetta. I hope you enjoy it, as it took longer and used more resources than any other drawing I've ever done. I used:
- my 8B through 4H Derwent Graphic pencils
- Tortillons
- My thumb and fingers for smudging
- ArcSoft PhotoStudio 5 to add the text
- About 5 hours I should have used for study.
I love my new pencils!

The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.

[Edit 08 Nov 2011: Favourites of this image have gone up heaps since the Occupy Wall Street movement started. I'm not all together excited about that because it implies through my association with this image that I support the use of anonymity to get away with crimes, as the wearers of Guy Fawkes masks have been, which I do not. I'm not saying I disagree with all the motivations of the movement, but I believe government has its place and public servants have theirs.

If you're adding this image to your favourites collection because you appreciate my work, thanks very much! However, if you're adding it because you think it's in support of the Occupy Wall Street movement, it isn't, so don't.

I would really appreciate it if people actually had a look around the gallery at some of my other works, many of which I consider better than this one.

That is all. Thanks!]

Big fan of V for Vendetta and Alan Moore's work in general. This would be great as an ad for the trade of the comic or the movie. I like that you used a subtly low angle to make V appear more imposing and dramatic, very good technique.

To those of you who have requested that I submit this as a print I'm afraid that due to copyright infringement or something to that effect, deviantART won't allow me to make any money from this work. That's okay with me, but if you really want a printout of this, I might still have a high-res version of it on my old computer.

If you're interested, please let me know.
