CHRIS NOLAN - VISIONARY by commando-kev CHRIS NOLAN - VISIONARY by commando-kev
Another portrait for practice, this time of my favourite director.....Christopher Nolan.

Director of some of the best films Hollywood has to offer such as The Dark Knight and Inception.

I really dont think mainstream audience's even know who he is or what he looks like so I thought I'd throw the spotlight on him for 5 minutes!

Photoshop CS3, 8 - 9 hours

Enjoy :)

I SWEAR TO GOD, THE ACADAMY BETTER GIVE CHRISTOPHER NOLAN AN OSCAR BECAUSE HE DISERVE TO HAVE ONE OR I WILL EXPLODE!!!!!. :rage:

He should of gotten at least Best Director for The Dark Knight.

I read on the Rotten Tomatoes, Both The Dark Knight and Slum Dog Millionaire (which won for both Best Director and Best Picture) both have 94% of positive reviews.  But The Dark Knight was reviewed by 289 Critics and Slum Dog Millionaire was reviewed by 224 Critics.  Not only that, The Dark Knight made $1,000,000,000 at the Box Office and Slum Dog Millionaire made $380,000,000 at the Box Office. WTF?

A Visionary,indeed.
Just like how Batman Is The Hero Gotham Deserves,Christopher Nolan is The Hero The Industry Deserves.
Christopher Nolan is one of the finest Directors working in The Industry.I don`t think he`s made a bad movie yet-and even BEFORE The Batman Films,he was making great films.The man is an auteur,a traditionalist and a genius! If he`s stay on the track he`s currently on,someday,The Oscars will have to stop snubbing him,because it`s already starting to make them look foolish and it`s making them look like a bunch of out-of-touch,snobbish elitists with their heads shoved too far up their own rears.The Late Heath Ledger posthumously winning The Best Supporting Actor as Joker was very much well-deserved and pretty much a forgone conclusion but after the way they snubbed The Dark Knigt for being nominated in The Major Categories,they had no choice but to extend The Best Picture Category.We`ll see if the upcoming The Dark Knight Rises will get nominated next year!
Like Nolan himself,your artwork is brilliant!
A fine job on this fine artwork of a fine Director!

Besides the drawing being awesome, I love Chris Nolan (have you seen Following, his first film?). So this was an instant fave for me. ;)

I'm ashamed to admit but I havent seen Following yet. Ive seen all his other films and he hasnt done a bad film yet. They've all been top notch in my humble opinion. A personal fave of mine is Memento, love that film :D
