Jack Elam


One of the great Western character actors...so I guess this is a companion piece to the Sergio Leone sketch since I used the opening sequence of "Once Upon A Time In The West" as reference!

Great work, Vincent. This is a very nice black and white sketch with a perfect likeness (light and shadows are gorgeous).

Vincenzo said...

Merci Thierry!

Your comment is much appreciated since I find your work a source of constant inspiration...I consider you one of the premier draughtsman working today!!!

All the best!

Charles DA COSTA said...

I love!!!
fantastic capture and perfect likeness.
Very beautiful work my friend !!!

Vincenzo said...

Thank you Charles...every time I do one of these I think of you, your catalogue of Leone characters are just the best!!!

...and apologies for adding the word verification...the "Spam Idiots" started to get on my nerves!

All the best always!!!

Bart Bals said...

A very good Jack Elam !
Altough he's got a great face for caricature,you don't see this very often. Great work.

Bart Bals said...

A great caricature of a great face haha!

Vincenzo said...

I agree Bart...it won't be long before it's a forgotten face...but I guess that's just the nature of things, how many great character actors of the 20's and 30's have already disappeared into obscurity!

Appreciate the comments :)

Patrick said...

Vincent you are too fast ,I cannot believe I missed this portrait of Jack Elam.Gorgeous!!

Vincenzo said...

Hahaha...well fast is usually not an adjective used to describe me ;)

As always, thank you my incredibly talented friend!!!

At the risk of not being very original in my comment, I would still say that beyond this excellent caricature, the likeness is amazing and the look (eyes) is absolutely gorgeous!!

Vincenzo said...

Thank you Denis :)

This is brilliant Vin - how many movies was he in ? - AND I never knew his name !
Just bought that movie thru iTunes goes well with the Clint 'Spaggy' westerns.
Take care.
