Lisbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, written by Stieg Larsson
Brian Joseph Davis is an artist and filmmaker whose ongoing project The Composites (featured previously) produces illustrations of popular literary characters using law enforcement sketch software. These interesting illustrations, which are created based on authors' descriptions of their protagonists, are black and whites that allow viewers to fully concentrate on the shapes and features of the faces without the distraction of color. After an extended break in working on the series, the artist is now producing more Composite images.
Pictured here are some of Davis' images juxtaposed with the Hollywood versions of these characters. See more of these side-by-side comparisons at My Modern Met. Visit Brian J. Davis' Composites Tumblr site to keep up with his latest artistic output, including a new image of Stephen King's Carrie White from his novel Carrie.
