Lee as Dorian Gray

Lee as Dorian Gray

A few months back Paul Aiken challenged everyone in the Cayman Islands Photography Club to recreate a movie poster. I was unfortunately unable to do so at the time but thought it was a great project for when I had some time.

Fast forward to Christmas 2009 and I had 4 days off which I spent a significant part expanding my Photoshop knowledge. One of the items that I produced is today's photo of Lee.

My inspiration came from the Dorian Gray Movie that was released 09.09.09: http:/​/​www.​imdb.​com/​media/​rm44665088/​tt1235124.

I used two different patterns for the face, one can be found here:
