Three Muses - Chaplin


I can't wait to see all the Charlies this week! This started with my own background, with an overlay of script, an overlay of a skyline in silhouette, and lastly part of a movie poster from "A Dog's Life". The Charlie vignettes are from other posters. I decided I'd been doing too many "zetti type" pieces, and it was time to do something with more substance! Thanks for looking.

  1. Oh, good, I'm first! This is so cool: the graphic starkness of the central figure against the city skyline is very striking, Bevvie.

  2. Although i find the "zetties" so cute Bev... when i'm honest, this style means more to me.
    The scene that you created for Charlie with on the background that skyline !! Well Done !
    ( Whas it black ? or have you changed the saturation ? i'm just curious)
    I can't help my self but i have a preference for sceneries.
    And now i hope that nobody understands me wrong. Pfffjoei :-)

  4. Bev, this is one of your very best. It shows so perfectly the pathos of the Little Tramp. The colouring and background are fantastic and the whole effect is sensational. Take a bow. Standing ovation from me!!

  8. Oh this is a great piece Bev, from your choice of Charlie and the dog sitting there looking so sad, to the starkness of the skyline, to the beautifully layered and blended 'little tramps' in the backdrop. A stunning piece and one of your very best. Can you hear the applause coming from my corner? You should!

    I think when you kept the skyline coloured that your entrie didn't look SO WELL !
    You have a perfect eye to match colours together !!

  15. Hi Bev,

    I had trouble posting messages last night-- when I went back to review some of my comments today, seems many/most were missing. I don't know what the problem is but in the meantime...Great job on your Charlie!

    I love the backdrop of the skyline and if you squint a little you can see it in a whole different way. The image of Charlie and the little dog just pops against that background. Excellent composition here!

    Looking forward to next week and thank you for encouraging me to join the fun!
