Ugly Sweaters | Advent Drawing Challenge 2019


The prompt "ugly sweaters", in the #adventchallenge2019 hosted by @theithei, made me think of that moment in Bridget Jones' Diary (movie) where she first meets Mark Darcy, and he is wearing a typical ugly Christmas sweater.

So, here's my illustration of the character, portrayed by Colin Firth, as I imagine Bridget seeing him across the room at the Christmas party. I enjoyed experimenting with dappled light effects, as though it were a late afternoon sunlight filtered through a window with trees outside.

Credit: I used a still from the movie as a reference.

The ugly sweater is spot on and oh boy the light effect is fantastic made me thinking how can I learn to do that.
