Drawing100 – 51: Sport

And we have entered the second half of the challenge now, and I hope to keep at it. Today’s topic is Sport. I couldn’t think of anything other than this sadly. Yes, it is Anakin Skywalker’s pod-racer from the Episode 1: Phantom Menace. 

I recently re-watched the movie, and you know what? It is not half bad. Especially, the podracing scene, and the Duel of Fates. Of course, Jar Jar Binks kinda sucked the souled out of the movie. Anywho, that’s a big discussion for another post. For now, here you go –

Drawing100 – 6. Break Away

To be honest, I struggled a lot with today’s topic, which is – Break Away. First of all, I was quite confused about what it meant. So I did a bit of Googling, and found the following.

break·a·way
/’brākə,wā/
Noun:

  1. A divergence or radical change from something established or long standing.
  2. A secession of a number of people from an organization, typically following conflict or disagreement and resulting in the establishment…

I am not too sure about if my sketch for the day reflects no.2 as clearly. But it sure does agree with no.1 in my opinion.

Break Away - Daleks and StormtroopersYour verdict?

Top Movie Characters – Yoda [ Sketch ]

Yoda Sketch

I thought of doing a Top 10 and I just couldn’t keep it constrained to just that. Because, I seriously do not know which characters would feature on my Top 10 Movie Characters List. I got inspired by this post by Lee on his blog, and the moment I saw this, I uttered the words – Yoda, Hellboy, Iron Man, Batman, Hulk. But I just realised, most of these are comic book characters. I need to include more movie characters. Like the Dude, or Ellen Ripley. So far, I have narrowed down to just Yoda, and Hellboy. For my first post in this series – here is Yoda. And since, I haven’t sketched in a very long time, you’ll catch the pencil, ink, and full complete Yoda sketch in its green coloured glory after the jump.

London Film and Comic Con 2012: Cosplayers, Collectibles, Guests and more

Batmobile - London Film and Comic Con 2012

Almost 2 weeks late for this post. Apologies for my laziness. But here it is, part 2 of my coverage of the London Film and Comic Con 2012. Let’s cut the crap and go for the stuff. This was my third year at the LFCC, and I knew exactly what to expect. It was moved to a new venue (from Earl’s Court to Kensington Olympia). This is no SDCC by any stretch of imagination. The guests here are a mix of the usuals, who you WILL see year after year, thrown with a surprise mix of a few celebrities, who will charge a fee for an autograph and a pic taken. The only thing that excites me about London Comic Con year after year are the cosplayers, the collectibles for sale, and of course the independent artistes showcasing their art. And as you’d expect, the cosplayers are a bit too inclined towards either the Gallifreyan universe, or towards a long time ago in a galaxy far far away.

After the jump, all that was there this year at the London Comic Con. Warning: Image Heavy Post.
