The Usual Suspects – UPDATED

**Added the 2 outline images at bottom to give an idea of how much detail goes into each illustration/character**

A friend of mine asked me to create this digital illustration of his 5 favourite TV characters, done in a Usual Suspects line-up style. Incase you don’t recognise them, from l-r are Don draper (Mad Men), Walter White/Heisenberg (Breaking Bad), Tony Soprano (The Sopranos), Rust Cohle (True detective) and Dr Gregory House (House).

As well as drawing them in their signature clothing, I also added iconic items like Tony’s cigar, Walt Whitman’s ‘Leaves of Grass’ book, etc to the piece. Good fun working on this one!

Here’s the initial sketch layout, final piece and a few close-ups:
