Christopher Robin #FanArt





This week's #FanArt comes from our Dublin-based 2D Artist, Darren Murray! Darren was inspired by the recent 'Christopher Robin' film to create this bustling London scene! 

Darren: I was watching the movie trailer for Disney's live-action movie 'Christopher Robin' and this shot caught my eye. 

I thought the visuals for the movie, in general, were stunning and I happen to have a soft spot for London. I guess I just love the look, vibes, and culture of London, so it was the perfect motivation to dust off my brushes and try to capture this movie moment on canvas.

I painted this in acrylics on canvas paper. I hadn't painted in traditional media in quite a while and kept meaning to do it. I guess I was just waiting for the right inspiration to catch my eye and give me the drive to set up my easel and paints.

I wasn't expecting much to come from it, as it had been so long, but I was pretty happy with how this turned out. 

It is not as polished as I would like, but maybe that was because I was afraid to ruin what I had originally loved about the shot.
