Film Noir Mystery by Damalia Film Noir Mystery by Damalia
This was an assignment for Illustration, it was suppossed to be a film noir-inspired black and white illustration that gets across the idea of mystery, and also uses a setting based in Providence--meaning we actually had to go out and walk around to find a place. Boo.

Black and white acrylic on board, 12x16".

This is fantastic, amazingly beautiful.
I love how mysterious it is.
Atmospheres like the one you've captured here are my absolute favourite.

I accidently put it into my 'photography' favourites because that's what I thought it was at first Haha!
Sorry ^-^ I hope you don't mind.
I've also put it into my favourites.

I thought this was a photograph from the thumbnail; this is absolutely stunning!

Incredible painting, and it conveys the theme "mystery" so very well.

Most definitely going on my favorites list.
