Commission. He wanted his in the style of the promotional poster for a film called A Company Man.
It was an okay film. Fun to paint this though!

I love the value range going on here, his torso is subtly illuminated and prioritized over the backdrop in a way that feels natural and really sells the mood.

I'm so digging this :D The expression, pose, and overall composition has such a cool noir like tone to it
