Bill the Butcher
This is a sketch I did of Bill the Butcher from Gangs of New York. I get a real kick out of that movie, it has a gritty violent atmosphere but the world created is so vibrant. The costumes are very colourful but covered in a film of dirt and grime. The characters are just as colourful as the costumes, especially Bill the Butcher the Gang leader of the Five Points, played by Daniel Day-Lewis
I sketched this up just after watching the movie and still have the intention of doing a couple of other characters. Stay Tuned to see who they will be.
Media used was watercolour and india ink on brown recycled paper.
