Your pencil work is simply amazing. How do you get so much detail working at such a small scale?

Thank you! I use a magnifying glass. I figure if it looks good under glass, it will look more detailed to the naked eye :D

Love the intensity, Rick.... especially those deep dark mysterious eyes with the sharp white highlight at the top of the lower eyelid. Makes it pop.

I've been doing some genealogy research on our Chapin family... Clint is one of the Chapin cousins.

Wow!! 10 hours? Simply memorizing Rick. I am trying to find artwork of Clint that I could get the proper permissions to use for my Dirty Harry: End Game screenplay. This final sequel to the Dirty Harry series needs artwork that will stand up to test of time. Since you do not draw for commission I would like to know what permissions (if any) you may allow for the commercial use of your work.

Thanks

Dude I have no idea about the legal crap. I recently had someone who want to sell PRINTS of my drawings WORLDWIDE to websites, mags, newspapers, but I couldn't. My son's manager's mom is an attorney for that sorta thing. We cannot profit from the likeness of celebs. Lawsuit city :( If you find out the details, sure

I will look into it. Clint Eastwood did sue a furniture company in April. The actor-filmmaker claimed the furniture stores didn't seek permission to trade on the goodwill associated with his name and his movies. No judgement has been issued yet but it looks as though those products have been taken off the market. Tiger Woods lost his lawsuit with a painter who did images of him playing golf since it was viewed as self expression. If you feel nervous about it I'll simply use the image of a .44 magnum. No problem. I still love your drawing. Here is some legal stuff I found. Let me know either way.

"A person's right to control the use of his or her image or likeness is
called "The Right of Publicity." Approximately half the states have
distinctly recognized a right of publicity. Of these, many do not
recognize the right by that name, choosing rather to protect it as
part of an individual's right of privacy."

"On the federal side of the equation, if a person can establish an
aspect of his or her identity as a trademark, protection may be
provided by Federal law. The Federal Lanham Act can also provide
protection where a person's identity is used to falsely advertise a
product or designate its origin."

I guess, bottom line is, if you use it, you're on your own ha! Since I'm not getting paid for it, I don't know how they could want blood from a turnip? :D

True, I'd be the one taking the chance. I've already created an alternative cover nonetheless. Warner Brothers (most likely) still owns the rights to the Dirty Harry series. I don't know if they also own the book rights to the original character. So even if I write a script about a character that hasn't seen any action in 24 years I might still be crossing the line. This is why great movies are so far and few between. No one allows anyone else to come up with a creative idea no matter what. That's why I have to literally give my screenplay away for free at first just to generate some media buzz. I know there still is an audience for this character. My guess is that they will reboot Dirty Harry once Eastwood is no longer alive. I would rather have him end the series properly then some bastardized reboot version come out that is campy or cheesy. Alas, it is the world we live in unfortunately. Thanks for responding Rick. Nothing to fear. I will simply use the alternative cover. You will hear about this screenplay sooner or later I can guarantee it.
