Two quick movie scene sketches. A scene from Time Bandits and one from Brazil--two of my favorite Terry Gilliam movies in terms of aesthetics. I love the lighting, the colors, the use of skewed camera angles. Terry Gilliam is a master.
Anyway, I do this from time to time to help me work out some kinks in my rendering abilities. I am pretty confident in my drawing--given that I have had the most practice in that area. Working with color and rendering, however, require me to use a whole different part of my brain. So, every once in a while, I will do this quick color sketches of screen grabs from some of my favorite movies. I try to pick scenes that I like or that present some particular challenge for me. These two were just two very different types of scenes--very different in terms of set-up and color... It's a great learning tool actually.
