Rowan Atkinson Caricature

Another drawing that I did entirely digitally.  It's nice getting to the point now where I don't always have to sketch things on paper first (even though I still think I prefer doing that in general).

When Anna and I were doing our caricature challenges one of the celebrities we did was Rowan Atkinson, but I wasn't totally pleased with what I came up with.  So this is my second attempt at a likeness.

Rooster Cogburn

I can't believe I forgot to upload this before.

This is a digital sketch that I did of Jeff Bridges as Rooster Cogburn in True Grit about a month ago.  

The Coen Brothers are truly geniuses.  I knew that I was going to like True Grit a lot, but I had no idea I would like it as much as I did.  I really think it's one of their best films (definitely my favorite of their non-original stories).

I was surprised how well Matt Damon fit in with the rest of the cast as well.  I thought it was funny that most of their repeat offenders had ridiculous accents in the film.  Matt Damon's stifled voice about half way through the film (don't want to spoil anything) almost seemed like an initiation into the crew.

In the spirit of our old Big Critique web-site, I give True Grit a +9.

The Vault: Basil Fawlty

John Cleese as Basil Fawlty.

Another oldie.  I did this cut-out about two years ago.

I ended up giving it away as a gift, with no small amount of remorse, but luckily I married the girl I made it for, so it's mine again.
