Skyfall Poster Concept

Poster concept tribute for the film "Skyfall" Gouache and pen on artboard. Style is a shameless imitation of the "From Russia With Love" poster by Renato Fratini. 
 I've started by practicing Craig's face in different styles. With mixed succes. The loose style of Fratini and Hooks requires considerable skill - which I don't have. 
Then I've painted the poster using traditional techniques to achieve the old-style effect. Text was added in Photoshop though.
