Sketch Dump: King Kong Calamari

Time Spent: About 2 hours

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.

Never Rub Another Man’s Rhubarb

On to another day of drawing improvement with one of my favorite character portrayals from one of my favorite movies: Jack Nicohlson’s Joker from Tim Burtons 1989 Batman.

Not a favorite drawing of mine so far though. But another necessary step on the path to being a better artist!

Werewolf Of London

Before Universal introduced Lon Chaney Jr. in the classic “Wolfman” they had a lesser known werewolf movie that came 6 years before it titled “Werewolf of London” (ah-wooooo). I watched my DVD of it last week or so and though it isn’t as good but it’s still very entertaining to watch. His first transformation into a werewolf was more clever and satisfying than Lon Chaney Jr’s.

So the past 2 nights I painted this. It was the toughest and I’m not as happy with it but it is what it is.
