I sat in front of the movie "The Imitation Game" based on Alan Turing, while drawing this...I think I cried throughout most of it lol. I just wanted to protect and cherish this amazing person which I guess translated into creating this armoured heart. Sometime we could all do with a bit of armour to protect our hearts couldn't we?
I outlined the main heart shape in pencil and selected areas for the heart to show through the armour. Then I went about "doodling" the armour in biro, adding shading with pencil over the top. I used acrylics for the paint effects
