#ThrowbackThursday #DailyMovieSketch Sketch number 175 is a special one, because so far, it's the only collaborative sketch on this page. It was done as part of #Inktober2016, @sripriyatham drew Leonardo DiCaprio and I drew Martin Scorsese. This drawing was done with Bic ballpoint pen on a Canson sketchbook. I had only posted a photo of the drawing earlier, and scanned it just recently, for my Two Years of Daily Movie Sketch collage. So, posting the scan. My latest drawing, one of Alicia Vikander is almost done and I'll post it either tonight or tomorrow morning.

Watched "Ready Player One" yesterday, and it was a very good movie! Steven Spielberg adapted Ernest Cline's novel into this entertaining blockbuster. In the future, people spend their time wired in to the OASIS, a VR environment. Five years ago, OASIS creator James Halliday died and left a challenge, that would grant control of OASIS to anyone who solved it. Slimy corporate villain Nolan Sorrento wants control, and it's up to a group of young people to solve Halliday's challenge. The entire movie is essentially a variation of playing a game level where you have to find three keys to unlock the exit. In the hands of a lesser filmmaker, it might not have been as interesting, but this is an extremely entertaining and well made movie, with no shortage of dazzling spectacle. Definitely worth watching. Lots and lots of pop culture references, I spotted only a few, check out the @newrockstars breakdown on YouTube, where they identified over 300 Easter Eggs in the movie. "Ready Player One" was already part of my Anticipated Movies of 2018 artwork, and I wore this t-shirt when I went to watch the movie. Posting a photo of it. #vsco #canon #sl2 #200d #85mm18

Noticed today that quite a few of my artist friends and those whose artwork I follow, have posted #ArtVsArtist collages. So I thought I'd do it as well. But, I've thought of a slightly different way of doing it. You see, here, on my @dailymoviesketch account, I'll post a collage of pictures from my main account @karthikabhiram, and there, I'll post a collage of scanned artworks from this account! Does that sound interesting? Basically, I'm posting two Art vs Artist collages. If you aren't following me there, you can, for my photography work. Here's my #ArtVsArtist2018!

Annihilation (2018)Directed by Alex GarlandAfter coming to attention as a writer ("28 Days Later", "Dredd"), Alex Garland made a terrific directorial debut with "Ex Machina". I was therefore eagerly waiting to see his latest effort, "Annihilation". The movie got a theatrical release in the US, but was distributed by Netflix in other countries (apparently the studio got cold feet, thinking that a deliberate science fiction movie led by a mostly female cast may not be very commercial). I'm happy to have seen it either way, as it's a really good movie.The story concerns a team of scientists who go into an area called The Shimmer, a literally shimmering zone with strange properties. The Shimmer started with a meteorite crash, and has been expanding, threatening to annihilate life on earth as we know it.I loved the movie, I thought it was very well made, with a good blend of science fiction and horror elements. I was reminded of "Lost", Michael Crichton's "Sphere", and possibly even "Arrival" and "2001". All of those are very different works of course, but some aspects of this movie evolve similar reactions as those others.The acting, cinematography are all great, the story is engaging, and there are some genuinely unsettling moments (one scene with a bear creature in particular). Highly recommended. I drew Natalie Portman as Lena from the movie. Like the previous two drawings, this was also drawn with 0.5mm 2B pencil on Brustro sketchbook and scanned, and is also the size of a ₹2coin. I actually did all three drawings on the same page.All three movies ("A Quiet Place", "Rangasthalam", and this) are very good ones that I saw recently, and all of them have had a lot of effort put into them, are almost personal works by the respective filmmakers, at least, definitely not the regular cookie cutter fare.#335 / 11-Apr-18#ANNIHILATION #natalieportman #DailyMovieSketch #netflix

Rangasthalam (2018)Directed by B SukumarI watched "Rangasthalam" in Bhimavaram a couple of days back, after hearing a lot about it. The movie is set in 1980s in the titular fictional village. We are introduced to multiple characters, each well developed and very well acted including Ram Charan as Chitti Babu, who is hard of hearing. His brother returns to the village only to find that the President (Jagapathi Babu) and Society literally rule over the villagers, and decides to run for President, which might put his life in danger.Story wise, the movie is a rather straightforward village drama. But, what sets this movie apart is the way it is put together and the effort that has gone into world building. At almost three hours long the movie does take its time to set up characters and situations. But it is all done to create a believable environment. The movie looks gorgeous, the cinematography and production design are terrific. There is tremendous attention to detail, there are some frames with so many elements and characters in them. The acting is uniformly excellent and Ram Charan is outstanding.I would need to re-watch "1 Nenokkadine" to be sure, but I enjoyed that and the more recent "Nannaku Prematho" more than this. Still, this is a very well made film, highly recommended. I drew Ram Charan as Chitti Babu from the movie. Like the previous artwork, this was drawn with 0.5mm 2B pencil on Brustro sketchbook and scanned. The actual art is the size of a ₹2 coin. #334 / 10-Apr-18#rangasthalam #ramcharan #DailyMovieSketch #thepennychallenge

A Quiet Place (2018)Directed by John KrasinskiI watched this movie on a recent trip to Vijayawada, and I went in pretty much cold. I hadn't seen the trailer, and had only the plot synopsis on the BookMyShow app to go by. Probably, that worked better towards my enjoyment of the movie.The setup is simple but intriguing. It is a few years in the future. Most of humanity has been wiped out by creatures that are sensitive to sound. Survivors have to literally not make any noise, using sign language to communicate. The movie follows a family in this situation.The movie is taut, and at a 91 minute running time, is extremely efficient. It is very well made, with great cinematography and acting. For a movie using sound as a critical element of the plot, the sound design is fantastic – balancing silence and sound beautifully. Rarely have I seen a movie that actually makes the audience wary of making a sound, lest something important is missed. This is a movie that deserves to be seen in a theatre, without distraction. I enjoyed it very much. Do go see it, while it is a horror movie, the focus is more on building suspense and tension than jump scares. I drew Emily Blunt from the movie. The drawing was done with 0.5mm 2B pencil on Brustro sketchbook and scanned. It's the size of a ₹2 coin. #333 / 10-Apr-18#aquietplace #DailyMovieSketch

I'm posting this picture on both my accounts @karthikabhiram and @dailymoviesketch. If you've been following me you probably know that I was travelling the major part of last week. That's why I wasn't able to draw anything new till now.On the recent travel though, I watched two very good movies, John Krasinski's "A Quiet Place" at Capital Cinemas Vijayawada, and Sukumar's "Rangasthalam" at AVG Cinemas Bhimavaram. Before travelling, I had also watched Alex Garland's "Annihilation" on Netflix. Wanted to do small drawings of all three, have done two so far.Will scan these two and post them soon, on @dailymoviesketch along with my reviews of the movies. Please catch "A Quiet Place" in theatres soon, it's really good and deserves to be seen on a big screen with a good sound system. Both of the movies, coincidentally, use sound as an element of their respective plots!#vsco #samsung #galaxys7 #hellohyderabad #bizarrehyderabad #DailyMovieSketch #rangasthalam #aquietplace

I have improved my skill – still a lot of scope for improvement, I hope to do better in the future! Sincere thanks to everyone who has supported my work! When I started, I did a sketch a day for ~120 days. Now, I post every 2-3 days, as work schedule permits. I also spend more time on them, and post scanned images, not photos. The write ups are also longer. There are now 332 sketches on this page. Here are some of my "Greatest Hits" – scroll back to see the original posts for the respective write ups. – Marla Singer/Fight Club, Walter White/Breaking Bad- Natalie Portman/V for Vendetta, a sketch I got autographed by David Lloyd, artist of the graphic novel – Firebase, sketch which the director @neillblomkamp liked – Collab with @sripriyatham and the last sketch of @Inktober 2016, a challenge I completed (31 sketches) – Deadpool/Bob Ross, shared on Instagram by Deadpool creator @robliefeld – "Breathe" drawing, featured by @breatheamazon and retweeted by @actormaddy – Kattappa drawing, featured on @baahubalimovie – Anushka/Baahubali 2, one of the most liked posts- Arjun Reddy, the most liked post here, and featured by @chaibisket – @reginaacassandraa/Awe!, she shared an in-progress drawing on her Instagram story – Uma Thurman/Pulp Fiction, the drawing I posted on completing one year- Dark, Pickle Rick, Murphy/Interstellar- PPAP Ryuk/Death Note, one of the few #Inktober2017 sketchesI'm also sharing some images of interesting things I got to do the last two years.

For New Years, I have done artworks with multiple faces, available as t-shirts from @paintcollar. Finally, a fake movie poster, a flatlay at @sbowindia.Thanks once again, it's been awesome, I hope to do more interesting stuff in the future!

[Drawing of @ranadaggubati holding the Infinity Gauntlet] Avengers: Infinity War (2018)Directed by Joe and Anthony RussoSo it's April, and the release of @avengers: #InfinityWar is only a few weeks away. Recently, there was news that Rana Daggubati would be dubbing the voice of Thanos, for the Telugu version of the movie. Marvel India released a Telugu trailer (the "There was an idea" one), and I thought the dubbing job was really good (superior to the Hindi trailers of this movie and Deadpool 2). Before the trailer actually begins, there's a shot of Rana holding the Infinity Gauntlet.I chose to draw that for #DailyMovieSketch. The thing is, the shot in the trailer is an extreme close up, so I had to look at other images to complete his face and the gauntlet.Hope Rana likes the drawing if he sees it The drawing was done with 0.5mm 2B pencil on my Brustro sketchbook.#332 / 2-Apr-18#avengers #infinitywar #avengersinfinitywar #ranadaggubati #Thanos #telugu #chaibisket #marvel #marvelstudios #marvelfanart
