With what starts as moonlighting with the dark side, quickly spirals out of control. With money comes power. Leo finds himself trying to hide his new love of money and power, from his old love his family. As Leo becomes more successful as a gangster, he slowly starts to realize that he has had a secret helper all along, creating the perfect circumstances for him to succeed. Leo’s father who he never knew, is none other than Licio Gelli a 93 year master manipulater who has had a long criminal career starting with Mussolini’s “black shirts” to cia Agent . Recruited after the war ex Nazis where used as a line of defense against communism, with that they created networks, and gained much power throughout Europe and south America.

I'm not a specialist in art, but your work was the one that impressed me more in the contest.

The detail of the people down in the stairs is amazing.

Congratulations for the great work.

This (both image and video) is the single most awesome thing I've seen since the movie itself came out. Just amazing concept and execution, skill and imagination. I feel bad that yours wasn't picked in the final because Nolan wanted another "concept" for the cover. If it had been pure skill, you would've won. And if Nolan's idea of the concept was closer to mine, you would've won. This is my choice amongst all of them. Just brilliant. Spectacular. Wow.

i have watched your video. this was one of the most enjoyable and breathtaking things ever. i know there are a lot of OMFG SPEEDPAINTING videos on youtube but THIS ONE really wowed me- epic!

there is one thing I don't get: at the end when you draw around with a brush (you use the brush the whole time so wtf) there is a little window of the brush and how it's applied and it's angle. what exactly is this? is this new in cs4 or is it some software that comes with your wacom or what's it? i hope you know what i mean. the little window with the brush in it.

thank you so much. the brush window thing is a new feature that comes with CS5. It's called Natural Media Brushes (slightly different from your standard brush tool). And simply it's exactly what Ive been waiting for Photoshop to introduce. It's a brush that reacts like a real paintbrush would, with elements like bristle stiffness, angle, pressure, and direction reacting to the bristles themselves and so on. It can also be set to blend in with surrounding paint with customizable paint wetness, and brush paint load. Especially since my background comes from traditional painting, working with a realistic brush element in photoshop is perfect. I could go into explaining how it works more, but it would probably be explained better in a video from adobe or just search "cs5 natural media brushes" in google, youtube or something. thanks again.
-cheers
