Artwork that for some reason I never uploaded here. I didn’t want to do nine separate posts so I uploaded them en’mass
It is always important to mind your manners, even when your trying to steal a
golden cup Arkenstone from a giant fire breathing dragon Cumberbatch . I don’t know why this image popped in my head, but it did. It probably has something to do with the stereotype of the british loving their tea . Although I spent a couple of hours on this already, it is still pretty rough. I need to get it done by tomorrow so it is adjacent with the release of Peter Jackson’s money printing machine the second Hobbit film. I did enjoy the second film so I look forward to seeing it again.
Note to self: it occurred to me that I have either made smaug too small or the dwarves and hobbitze too big. It throughs a ratchet in my comp so I will try to figure it out.
I was really depressed last night so I needed to draw something silly. I love finding connections to things that have little in common. You can break down this spoof in two ways.
1. Cumberbatch playing both Kahn and Smaug. And Spock entering the wrong movie by mistake.
2. The original Spock’s outrageous song about Bilbo Baggins (seriously…. It exists.)
There is one thing for certain. If Spock and Smuag where in the same movie. Smuag would get his ‘donkey’ (another pun yay!) handed to him.
I spent about 2 hours on this sketch. Also, if I get 5 comments about liking this sketch, I will make it into a painting
Update: after work, couldn’t sleep. worked on it for 15 minutes trying to fix stuff.
I was pressed for time. So I am unable to finish it. It’s Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins. I might finish this painting… or not. I was going to include a review of the movie with this post, but I ran out of time..
Self Critique: finish the mouth and correct a minor error with it. Needs more refinement. Theirs something else..
Ref: still from the 2012 film
time spent: 1 hour +15 min
Daily Painting # 7
Still trying to get back into the grove of drawing with a pencil, I’ve been spoiled by Photoshop and my Computer Tablet. Here is the best of the sketches today. A Lighting study of a crocodile, Shawn the Sheep ‘fan art’, and Cumberbatch’s Eye.
Cumberbatch himself admits his secret shape shifting powers “I think my eye will open at the end of the first film, and then you’ll get the rest of me in the second.” .. what .. you mean it’s mocap?.. never mind. But Weta could save a lot of money just by using Benedict Cumberbatch as is in the film, they wouldn’t need to design and render a dragon, Cumberbatch looks enough like one already :D. Sorry that was a bad joke, sometimes my jokes seem to drag-on.
Ok I will stop, I just recently seen the new Star Trek movie (In Darkness) and Cumberbatch did a excellent job as the villain. The movie was great and borrows quite a bit from the original Star Trek 2 movie but cleverly swapped things around.
