Tonight We Murder by luckyraeve Tonight We Murder by luckyraeve
**Please reblog [link] DON'T repost.**

Dexter getting ready for a night out on the town. :P

This painting took quite a bit longer than my previous Dexter portrait. I find views much trickier than profile views but the most difficult part was the hands. I didnt have proper reference for his gloves or the syringe and vial so I had to use bits and pieces of various reference images and hope for the best. :/ In the actual screen capture that I used for the pose Dexter is peeling a banana. Bananas dont quite have that ominous quality I was going for. :XD:

Oh, and the title is from a Ministry tune. C:

Painted in Photoshop 6 with a Wacom Graphire 3 pen tablet. Screencap used as reference, of course. 8 hours.

Dexter belongs to Showtime.
Artwork belongs to me.

MOAR Dexter:

"Bananas don't have that ominous quality I was looking for" XDDDDDD You should draw a parody of this, and make it ominous.

This looks awesome, and you'll be happy to know it chilled all the blood in my veins. In my arteries too. 7 (I've only seen the first episode of Dexter and he scared the hell out of me, boo-hoooo!! A)

*gasp* i insist you watch more episodes!!! this show is amazing! :la: it will go against every moral fibre in your body but you WILL end up liking him AND rooting for him after a few episodes. he's magical. *u* the fact that the people he kills are really awful people definitely helps. think of him as an ultra-realistic Batman. :XD:

What could be fun: take this piece and use the transform tool to make the hands bigger (hands are a lot bigger than you think--remember, an open hand is the size of your face) and just tweak that way. Maybe do a horizontal flip too, to shake your brain up. Then you'll learn more for your next piece!
