Name: Jimmy Jones
Weapon: Raw fists of fury!
This is my submission for the Scott Pilgrim 8th Evil Ex contest. I painted this specifically for this contest.
Meduim: acrylic paints
Time: probably 5-6 hours
Okay, so a little on why I designed the character the way that I did:
After looking through the headshots of the 7 evil exes, I noticed that most major ethnicities and even both sexes were represented, except that there wasn't an African American person. Therefore, ta-da!
I also decided to paint only a headshot since in the contest ad they showed only headshots (movie version) of the other evil exes; thus, I wanted there to be congruency between what was already created and what I created.
I suppose I should mention that since the other exes are all played by several recognizable actors, I did not think it would be taboo to use for my character a base off of a famous person's features.
And I named him Jimmy Jones because it sounds like a kid's name, so it sounds ironic in light of a huge man about to beat the crap out of a scrawney boy.
One last note: the scanner wouldn't scan all of it, so some of the image on the left and on the bottom got cut off. It isn't much, but I still kinda fear that it may have thrown off the composition a little bit... But hey, just sayin' ;D
Well, well, I hope you all like it, as I worked really hard on it.
