Portrait of Robert De Niro as Travis Bickle from "Taxi Driver"

Been in a bit of funk lately, and trying desperately to get out of it. Not inspired much recently so I decided to experiment with a few subjects from the world of pop culture. This is a new portrait of Robert De Niro as Travis Bickle from Martin Scorsese’s 1976 “Taxi Driver”.

Really dove deep into the digital painting of De Niro and tried some variation to the intaglio; tried some larger strokes, à la Leyendecker, to add some texture and shape to the portrait. 

These portraits were created using Adobe Illustrator, Corel Painter, and Adobe Photoshop.
