I may have outgrown playing with action figures, but I realized I pretty much do the same concept of “playing” except with drawing. I distinctly remember sitting in my grandmother’s living room and having my Power Rangers Megazord battle Hulk Hogan resulting in the loser falling down the stairs. And you could tell it was fantasy because Hogan always put that Megazord over, brother.
Nothing beats a good monster movie. Which are unfortunately becoming a bit of a rarity these days. But, alas, Kong: Skull Island is about to change all that. It’s true cinematic adventure escapism at its finest.
And nothing beats sitting down and just drawing what comes to mind. No pose reference…no final mental image…no idea where you’re going as you put pen to paper. This is the result of that. I like drawing like this and I need to do it more.
