Lawrence of Arabia
These are some quick color doodles I took from stills of the movie Lawrence of Arabia. I wouldn't call myself an old movie buff but I can see why people start. While watching this movie I knew where so many artsy films like "the fall" or "everything is illuminated" draws there style from. With such beautiful intense flat shots full of color and contrast, who wouldn't wanna copy? This movie is absolutely breath taking and also very long... but worth it. This was a real challenge for me.
Speaking of movies I saw batman (nanannanananananananananan) for the second time today. After seeing it the second time Heath Ledger's performance really impressed me. He seems like he would have been the next Johnny Dept but ten times better. I mean his attention to detail was insane. By licking his lips to the way he walked, his voice, his laugh... He just did it so well. I mean he would be an animators dream. Well. He seemed like he would have been a cool dude who would offer the world a lot o' good time movies.
Speaking of cool dudes. Anyone see Obama at the wailing wall? he seriously is a dream boat.
