Pencil Sketches


Hey look!
Drawings!
I don't believe I've posted any pencil sketches yet.
I haven't done any in quite some time which is a shame because I enjoy it very much.
I'll comment on only 2
1) Top left is a brief sketch of Philip Seymour Hoffman in the film Capote. I saw it last night and I liked most of it very much. Not a great caricature but the flavour is there for a quickie.
2) Bottom left. Resident superficialist and new girl Nadia asked me to draw a picture of a pretty girl. When I gave it to her her first comment was "She has a gut".
I confiscated it immediately.

And some Photoshop silliness.

Guy with the kitty apparently doesn't know what to do with it.

He appears very "what the hell".

I like how the running girl's hip juts out. You do nice with pencils.

UM said...

You might hate me for that, but I like your pencil sketches almost better,

I like the big guy puzzled by the little pussy.
And the other drawings too.

But.
Am I all alone in disliking the pious, boring, sentimental movie about Capote?
IN COLD BLOOD was made into an excellent movie some years ago. Perhaps it's due for a revival.
And do read the book people. You won't find a better one.
There is a warm stream of drivel flowing around Capote these days. It pains me to think of that great, unsentimental American writer being dissolved in this poisonous goo.

Everyone - thank you!

Andrei - I am just pleased my jibber jabber makes sense!

Grillo - there is nothing I can confiscate from you.

Smook - cheers man. Aren't you a nice chap?

Boris - and I like you.

Um - hell no. I'm pleased with them myself, I wouldn't have posted them if I didn't like them.
But I can hate you if you wish.

Red - I had intended it to be way with 3 Ys, but your additional Ys are great.

Limbolo - cheers.
I thought there was a lot of good stuff in the movie but it was overrated.
I thought it was shot terrifically, especially the early scenes in Kansas.
And I think you'll find In Cold Blood is currently being remade although I don't recall who with.
