Detective Marty Hart
true detective fan art the third. say hello to marty (1995 version). was much more difficult for me to define the basic head shape here, my first sketches looked odd, some of them like i was going for mixture between conan o'brien and klaus kinski, dunno why - really tried hart (haha...). since i gave the 95 cohle a small detail (the spiral eyes) i wanted to do the same for marty. it would have been nice to place asses and boobs on his eyes, as a reflection, but i didn't want to do the same again, that's when the lipstick as a third eye came in my mind. he can't wipe it clean. it's in plain sight... he's doing his thing so obvious that i had to do something in this direction. that cake... ;)
as you can see in the wip image, i also tried a bitchslap, but it was too much in your face (haha²) and far too big.
for the background i wanted to switch the theme at first, so that the 95 version of marty has a black one, and the 2012 version of marty gets a white one. after testing around i decided to go for colours here. the black and white theme makes sense for cohles portraits, but would have another meaning applied to marty... also, since they are so different compared to each other, i chose colours here. they fit martys temper...
next up: marty... the 2012 version. ;)
