So, Halloween is nearly upon us, and here are some recent sketches.
I love the trumpet--it's just an awesome instrument with so much soul. I had lotsa fun with this sketch, so I'm hoping to make some time to do a little more with it later on. We'll see. With any luck I can make some time this weekend.
Today, we watched Charlie Chaplin's City Lights in our character animation class. After watching the boxing scene, I couldn't quit thinking about how tough-looking those dudes in the ring were, so I spent my next class period doodling this:
And (in case you thought I'd forgotten), I've upped the ante once more in our pre-halloween freak out fest. Feast your peepers on this beauty:
Yep. "Shrek the Halls limited edition shampoo." Okay, we all know that straight to video/dvd releases are lower in quality, so I'm not here to tell you about how horrifying I think that cinematic trainwreck will be. After all, straight to video releases are about making money for studios so they can produce more cinematic releases later on--and we've all probably done paid work that wasn't up to our artistic standards to help make ends meet.
What's really scary (and nonsensical) to me is the idea of Shrek selling shampoo. Shrek is a bald ogre, and the most hair we ever see on him (thankfully) is his eyebrows...which are admittedly kind of bushy, but hardly warrant the use of a buble gum scented shampoo/conditioner combo. Anyway, here's to Suave for cooking up this pre-halloween's weirdest surprise.
I hope you're all excited for Halloween, and that you get a ton of candy! May strange, inexplicable and sugary things happen to you and your loved ones this year!
