A man who died by andrael A man who died by andrael
For :iconclub-tutu:'s Nov 2011 contest, to draw the characters in the style of a famous artist or artwork. I tried to do a portrait of Drosselmeyer as if it were one of Van Gogh's self-portraits. I fiddled with the colors a lot, trying to get it closer to the look of Van Gogh's paintings, but it doesn't quite get there IMO. I guess that's why his work is hanging in museums and mine is posted on Deviantart. :D In retrospect, the Starry Night-esque blue swirls are probably too soothing. In my head this looked a lot creepier.

His eyes look much friendlier than usual if you were going for a creepy style, but it does look very Van Gogh!

It really does fit him- the Van Gogh style, I mean. Kind of shows the 'madness within' better than a smooth paint type. This is Photoshop or did you use something like Art Rage? You're lucky that you're into very active fandoms. My fandoms are very obscure and hardly anyone does anything with them. Good thing Dr. Who and ASIOF came along, right? I want to watch Vincent and the Doctor again.

I definitely got a Van Gogh feel from this painting, I think you did an excellent job! It's also nice to see someone do Drossy for a change, everyone always draws Ahiru, Rue, Mytho, or Fakir.
