TRDL 2012 Series, No. 33 – Quorra [Tron: Legacy]

This was done for the TRDL Art Jam, the subject being contrast.

I’ve drawn Quorra once before, prior to the release of Tron: Legacy. I was obsessed with Olivia Wilde’s look in the trailers (the couch!) and frankly, all the monochrome and glow lines and all those cool design details they incorporated into the film’s updated look really spoke to my personal design cues. I was hooked before I even saw it. Didn’t hurt that I really find Olivia Wilde aesthetically pleasing, in other words, fly. This time, I’m coming off of actually having seen the film just a few days before this subject was pulled for the R3 Art Challenge, so I decided to play off the classic Louise Brooks image from 1928, setting her in profile against an opaque black background so that only her skin and a string of pearls are visible. As a result I eschewed the blue tints in much of Tron: Legacy’s ambient lighting and pushed the uniform glow to black and white.
