A quick pencil study from a still of Mark Rylance in Institute Benjamenta, by the Brothers Quay. I’ve only seen their animated films, but this [live action] one sounds interesting. Mr Rylance much more recently played the controversial, sympathetic recasting of Henry VIII’s Thomas Cromwell in the BBC’s adaptation of Wolf Hall. Played it with a kind of quiet power that’s rare.
Anyway, this is just a quick study; doesn’t really capture the eyes properly, but I rather like it anyway.
