I'm a little disappointed with how this one scanned. I tried a different kind of color pencils with this one, not my usual Prismacolors, and I guess they'll take some getting used to. The un-scanned art looks better, though. Almost looks like they're posing for a portrait, huh?
I think I'll stick to single subject close-ups like "Barbara in the headlights", though. It looks a lot less tight and photographic than this. Also, I see that dramatic lighting is a definite plus.

This is Barbara from Night of the Living Dead, and if you didn't recognize it shame on you! I'm pleased with how it turned out and I'll probably be doing more art like this in the future. I think I'll forget calling it "pause art" every time-I think you get the idea. I figured I might as well go to colored paper and colored pencils (well, black white and gray pencils, in this case). It will take longer I reckon, but it's worth it.

Here's an interesting shot (another drawing from a screen pause) of actress Andree Melly in the Hammer classic Brides of Dracula, one of the most iconic screen vamps in the history of vampire movies. I always thought she had a sort of Elsa Lanchester look about her: a little homely but with strangely alluring qualities at the same time.

Lately I've been doing little drawing exercises by pausing DVDs and doing quick sketches from the scenes. I figure that whenever I get sketches that look decent I'll go ahead and post them. Maybe I'll make it a regular thing, though I'm planning to do a lot more sculpting in the future so who knows if I'll keep it up. This drawing is from a scene from Pit and the Pendulum that fans of the movie might recognize.
