This is so, so cool. I love your idea and beautiful artwork-not too long ago I watched this movie. Fun and very sharp piece!

Amy! This is perfectly wonderful! You've captured the period vibe sp well, right down to her shoes! I love the touch of red on her shoes and the marquee, and the lettering is so realistic! I so enjoy seeing what you come up with each week...it's always a surprise and always delightful. This one is extra special.

Love the black and white approach.

Roz Foster said...

Wow. Fantastic detail. I'm so poor at doing architecture. I envy your adeptness at it. Beautiful work.

Elia said...

Awesome! this is such a great idea for the topic, so romantic. Your illustration seems so complex, you put a lot of work into it and it shows. It is beautifully done down to the last detail. Your use of this medium is so appropriate, love the touch of red color on the black and white. Simply beautiful!

Good in every way!

sweet! diggin how the red pops.

The woman with the ruby shoes looks a little like Ms. Stanwyck. Great style for this illustration.

Makes me sorry that most everything coming out of Hollywood (a few exceptions) has to be an overblown cacophony of special effects and noise. Where are the movies that actuallly tell stories?

Alina Chau said...

THis is beautiful!! Romantic and love the idea!! GREAT job!

Dra Studio said...

The detail mixed with wonderful gray shading is excellent. I like the way the piece is composed, too.
