Who is the most popular actor of our time? You might be surprised to learn it’s not any old actor, but rather one of the most famous men in the world: Robert Pattinson.
If you’re a fan of the Twilight film franchise, then you’ll know exactly who we’re talking about. And if you’re not familiar with Twilight, then let us introduce you to its most famous star: Robert Pattinson. He’s currently starring in the upcoming film, The Soulless, as well as the highly-anticipated second season of Outlander, along with his co-star, Katherine McQuaid.
It’s fair to say that Robert Pattinson is one of the most popular males in Hollywood today. He began his acting career back in 2005 and, since then, has gone on to become arguably the most iconic and recognizable face in Hollywood. He’s starred in a number of high-profile films, including Twilight and its sequels, New Moon and Eclipse. He also featured in one of the biggest films of all time, Batman v Superman:
So it comes as no surprise that artists have recreated his famous mug many times over. And we’re not talking about simple photography either. These are the real deal. Professional artists have taken the time to meticulously paint or draw a portrait of Robert Pattinson that can be used as a desktop background.
There are so many amazing artists out there. So we decided to do our best to showcase some of the best desktop backgrounds based on the work of Robert Pattinson. Take a look and let us know which is your favorite in the comments below!
Portrait Of Robert Pattinson As The Joker
This is one of the most iconic depictions of Robert Pattinson we’re going to showcase on this list. The artist behind this amazing portrait is none other than Mr. Mako, the same artist who did Harrison Ford as Han Solo in the famous “Han Solo” portrait. We can’t really say much about this particular portrait without giving it all the credit it deserves, but it is safe to say that this is the quintessential Robert Pattinson portrait. It truly captures the essence of The Joker: cold, calculating, and with a hint of sadness in his eyes.
Portrait Of Robert Pattinson As Edward Cullen
Another amazing portrait of one of the most iconic modern day actors! This is actually a collaborative effort between two different artists. The first and most obvious one is Housse, an artist who goes by the name “HOUSE”. He took the time to paint Edward Cullen, a.k.a. Robert Pattinson, based on an original 18th century portrait by Johann B. Graff. And it’s truly an accurate representation of the Twilight star as he actually looks. The only difference is that Housse added a bit of a modern touch to the original by painting an iPhone 7 on top of the portrait.
Housse’s artwork, as beautiful as it is, didn’t seem complete without the input of another artist. So Koi Pollard took the time to complete Housse’s work by adding a few more components and details. It’s a stunning portrayal of Edward Cullen and, as we mentioned above, it also features an iPhone 7. So yes, Koi’s design aesthetic really shines through in this portrait.
Portrait Of Robert Pattinson As The Saint
This is one of the coolest portraits we’ve ever seen. And it’s no wonder why. Not only does it feature one of the most recognizable actors of our time, Robert Pattinson, but it was also done in the style of a comic book cover.
The artist behind this breathtaking artwork is none other than Mr. Qwerty, the man behind the Heroclix comic and the co-owner of Blambot Design. And, wouldn’t you know it, he was inspired by the classic Saint graphic novel series. So we have a pretty cool desktop background here!
Portrait Of Robert Pattinson As Christian Bale
We couldn’t end this article without mentioning Christian Bale. After his performance as the Joker in the Batman v Superman movie last year, many people were anticipating a new portrait of Christian Bale. And here it is! Created by Mr. Qwerty, this is another incredible portrait of the American actor. Based on a black and white photograph, Mr. Qwerty truly captured Christian Bale’s essence as the character he portrays in the Batman series. The silhouette of the actor against a bright background, the angular positioning of his head and body, and the intensity in his eyes – this is a portrait that truly does justice to Christian Bale as Batman.
Even before Christian Bale’s turn as Batman, he was already an established actor who appeared in many iconic films. So it’s safe to say that this particular portrayal will remain as a memorable image for many years to come.
The Full House
We couldn’t talk about iconic Portraits Of Robert Pattinson without including this masterpiece. The Full House is the artistic merger of three different masterpieces. The first one is an oil painting by Michael Whelan, a portrait of the actor as Raphael in a 1911 painting named The Story Of The Three Trees. The second element is a photograph of the actor with his brothers, Alex and Luke, fishing off the coast of Los Angeles. The third and final ingredient is a sketch by artist Mike Miller, based on the photograph. So you have a masterpiece of a desktop background here. The fact that it combines three different artistic styles is truly remarkable.
As you can see, the artist behind The Full House is a team of three. Designer Mike Miller created the sketch that the three brothers then turned into a painting. The end result is a beautiful portrait of the actor that can be used as a desktop background.
A Portrait Of…
This is the last portrait on our list but it’s definitely not the least interesting or important one. We’re talking, of course, about the one and only Michael J. Fox. The artist behind this stunning piece is none other than Mr. Qwerty himself, the same man who did the artist-signed portraits we’ve been talking about throughout this article. So it makes sense that he’d tackle a portrait of one of the most inspirational and recognizable figures in Hollywood today. In addition to being an incredible actor, Michael J. Fox is an entrepreneur, philanthropist, and author. This is truly an amazing portrait of one of the greats of our time!
By now, we’re sure you’re aware of the massive impact that Robert Pattinson has had on the world of pop culture. He’s arguably the most famous man in the world today, even more so than the already-celebrated George Clooney. So it should come as no great surprise that artists have created many stunning portraits of him. From the iconic Joker to Christian Bale as Batman, these are just a few of the most recognizable images of Robert Pattinson that you may use as a desktop background.
