Lord Kylo of Ren

I was looking through one of my old art books and found a self portrait Edgar Degas painted in 1855 and I thought it looked a lot like Adam Drivers / Kylo Ren from Force Awakens. Having a spare 24″ x 24″ inch canvas laying about naturally I had to paint the idea. His mask is pretty cool, and lends itself to a kind of steampunk vintage look that suits the painting.

Had fun painting this. I worked more with acrylic glazing mediums and washes than usual, but the dark colours are lifted by the slight gloss to give it age and warmth.
