[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Daredevil (2015-present)Created by Drew GoddardThe new Season of this Marvel show was released on Netflix a few days ago, I'm currently on Episode 7 (out of 13). I was a big fan of the first two Seasons, and this third one is equally as good. Vincent D'Onofrio is fantastic as Wilson Fisk, and the character development and story so far is very engaging. The treatment of the character Dex is awesome too. The fight scenes are great, and like Season 2 had a long take fight featuring the Punisher, Episode 4 has a 10 minute long take fight sequence that has to be seen to be believed. The fights are brutal and realistic, and the fact that you care for the characters makes it that much more effective. Once I complete the show I'll share additional inputs.I drew Charlie Cox as Matt Murdock in his black costume this season. I had initially started drawing from another reference image, but did this as a smaller sketch. So, posting it.This was drawn with a black Bic ballpoint pen, and a red ballpoint pen and scanned. This is not really following any of the #Inktober2018 prompt words, however I suppose you could relate it to "weak", one of the earlier words.#daredevil #marvel #bullseye #mattmurdock #ballpointpen @inktober#383 / 22-Oct-18

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Total Recall (1990)Directed by Paul VerhoevenBased on the #Inktober2018 prompt word "swollen", I thought of "Total Recall", and the effect of decompression on people exposed to the Mars atmosphere, as depicted in the film (don't know whether it's scientifically accurate or not, but it's an example of the amazing effects that Rob Bottin and crew pulled off). The original "Total Recall" is fantastic, one of my favourite Schwarzenegger movies. A terrific blend of science fiction and action, a storyline involving memory implants, psychic mutants, rebellion, alien artifacts on Mars, blurring the lines between reality and dreams, all served with humour and several one liners, and lots of Paul Verhoeven's trademark splatter and extreme violence. The Academy Award winning visual and practical effects are amazing and still hold up today. I've always loved the brilliant orchestral but futuristic music score by Jerry Goldsmith (who himself regards it as his best work). I remember renting the videotape and watching it many times as a kid and on TV several years later. I always loved the futuristic designs and technology, the action and style, though when I was younger I remember being disgusted by some of the grotesque effects (the mutant Kuato, and the characters' eyes bulging out of their sockets). Years later someone pointed out that there are references to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in the film — wrapping a towel around your head to avoid capture, and a "triple breasted whore". Revisiting the movie is always rewarding and is a testament to how well made it is. They don't make them like they used to, I guess!There was a polished but instantly forgettable remake that came out in 2012, it can't compare to the original.I drew Ronny Cox as Cohaagen from the end of the movie. It was drawn with a black Bic ballpoint pen and a red ballpoint pen. I went overboard with the red pen so I did one more smaller drawing. I'm putting them up as two separate posts.@inktober @jakeparker #ballpointpen #ballpoint #pen #totalrecall #arnold @schwarzenegger #ronnycox#382 / 20-Oct-18

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Dark City (1998)Directed by Alex ProyasBased on the #Inktober2018 prompt word "clock". I thought of this movie because there is a giant clock that figures in the visual design of the movie, and the production company is Mystery Clock Films.This 1998 science fiction / fantasy movie begins with John Murdoch (Rufus Sewell) waking up in a dingy hotel room with no memory of who he is. There is a dead woman in the room. He soon receives a phone call that says that his memory has been erased and there are mysterious pale faced strangers after him.This setup is all I'll reveal, because saying anything more would be giving away spoilers. Of course if you saw the theatrical version back in 1998 (like me), there is an opening narration that explains who these strangers are, which was removed in the Director's cut that came out some years later. The movie is pretty amazing and though it didn't make all that much money on release, it has subsequently gone on to receive acclaim. I loved the visuals, the story, the music of the movie. I don't think it would be wrong to call this Alex Proyas's best film. Highly recommended.I drew Jennifer Connelly as Emma, John's wife. The drawing like my other Inktober sketches was done with a black Bic ballpoint pen and I used another red ballpoint pen to add a dash of colour. This is a scan of the drawing.#alexproyas #darkcity #jenniferconnelly #ballpointpen#380 / 20-Oct-18

#NoSpoilers Thoughts on “Venom” — I watched this movie on Monday night, and quite enjoyed it. Actually, considering the mixed feedback that the movie has gotten, I liked it more than expected.The movie as the trailers indicate, opens with a space probe crashing on Earth. The craft was launched by the Life Foundation, run by the movie's villain Carlton Drake (Riz Ahmed), bringing back alien symbiotes which he plans to use for his schemes. One such attaches itself to journalist Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) and Drake will stop at nothing to get his specimen back.The movie was entertaining, Tom Hardy gives it his all, as both Eddie and the voice of the Venom symbiote. It's fast paced and easy to watch but ultimately I felt it was very ordinary and does not match the quality of better comic book movies. They went with a more lighter tone than initially intended — the movie was supposed to be aiming for an adult rating and not the PG-13 that it ultimately got (maybe the studio intervened to make it so). Would an R rating made a difference despite the fundamental structure of the film? I'm not sure but we would have had some creative deaths to see.Music was quite Nine Inch Nails-esque by Ludwig Goransson, very different from his “Black Panther” score. I thought it was well done. The visuals were nice too (cinematography by Matthew Libatique). The credits animation was nice, there is one mid credit scene and one at the end. #vsco #google #pixel2xl #teampixel #flatlay #venom #DailyMovieSketch #pencilart

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home (1986)This sketch is based on the #Inktober2018 prompt word "whale". I knew the plot of Star Trek IV involved whales, but I hadn't actually seen the movie. So a few days ago I watched it on @primevideoin and then drew this sketch.The movie begins with an alien probe appearing and heading towards Earth. The signal it emits disrupts all of Starfleet communication and disables their ships. Admiral Kirk and his crew determine that the alien craft is broadcasting a signal that's actually the song of humpback whales, now extinct in the 23rd Century. So they go back in time to 1986, to bring back two whales which should help them respond to the probe's signal.The storyline sounds absurd but the movie is very well done and executed with sincerity, and is very entertaining. I drew Spock from the movie, the drawing was done with a Bic ballpoint pen and a red ballpoint pen and scanned.#ballpointpen #startrek #spock #llap#379 / 17-Oct-18

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Andhadhun (2018)Directed by Sriram RaghavanThis is a sketch based on today's #Inktober2018 prompt word "Cruel". There are certain very dark moments in this film, where characters really do cruel things to others.I watched this movie a couple of days back and enjoyed it greatly. It was a very well made movie, constantly throwing twists and turns at the audience. I liked that it was really unpredictable, and had terrific acting. The story concerns Ayushmann Khurrana as Akash, a blind pianist, and a murder. Anything more said would be a spoiler, so I'll just say that this Sriram Raghavan movie is highly recommended.The best performance in the movie comes from Tabu, and seeing that it has @radhikaofficial in it, I guess it should be released on @netflix_in soon!Sriram Raghavan is no stranger to directorial flourishes – there was that long take sequence that went along with the 'Raabta' song in "Agent Vinod", "Badlapur" was a terrific revenge story, and I remember "Ek Hasina Thi" was really dark when I saw it back in 2004. Here, the piano music pieces are really well done and there is a scene where music is playing and that is almost like a soundtrack to what is happening on screen.This must be one of the few Hindi movies where there are no traditional opening credits, it opens with a bang and the credits are at the end.I normally don't draw animals, but this is a sketch of a blind rabbit that is shown at the opening of the movie. It's more than just symbolic, as you'll find out at the end.It was drawn with a black Bic ballpoint pen and a red ballpoint pen, and scanned.#ballpointpen #ballpoint #pen #andhadhun#378 / 11-Oct-18

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Akira (1988)Directed by Katsuhiro OtomoI had been very busy with work the last month, just got done with a major Recruitment activity, so now have a little more time for drawing. I took a couple of days off from work as well. Today, I completed this drawing I started earlier – based on the 1988 Japanese anime film "Akira". This isn't exactly in line with the #Inktober2018 prompt word "flowing" for Day 10, but I'm still tagging it as such (@leimelendres used the same prompt word and drew a still from the same film coincidentally). The film is fantastic, set in 2019 Neo Tokyo, with young Tetsuo Shima running into a group of psi powered individuals, resulting in his mutation and pursuit by multiple groups. The animation is exquisitely detailed, the music is great and it has an engaging story.The sketch shows Tetsuo in a grotesque body horror scene with flesh and technology sprouting from his body.I started the sketch in September actually, though I only finished it now – and used the same style as my other #Inktober sketches this year, using a black Bic ballpoint pen and a red ballpoint pen.#Akira #Anime #Tetsuo #Kaneda #ballpointpen #ballpoint #pen#377 / 10-Oct-18

[#DailyMovieSketch × #Inktober]Moon (2009)Directed by Duncan JonesSketch based on the second #Inktober2018 prompt word “tranquil”. That word made me think of the Sea of Tranquility, which is on the Moon, and though that doesn't figure in the film at all, it reminded me of this 2009 science fiction movie. Sam Rockwell plays astronaut Sam Bell, who is stationed on the Sarang moon base, the only crew member of a mining operation. He is nearing the end of his three year contract, and it’s just two weeks before he has to go home. When an accident happens he finds himself questioning his sanity and realises things may not be what they seem to be. “Moon” is a brilliantly made and superbly acted movie, with Kevin Spacey providing the voice for the robot GERTY. I loved the production design, the cinematography, effects (all done on a very low budget) and the superb music score by Clint Mansell. I enjoyed the movie more on second viewing.This sketch was done with black Bic ballpoint pen and a red ballpoint pen and scanned.#ballpointpen #ballpoint #pen #moon #duncanjones #samrockwell#376 / 3-Oct-18
