[#AnInchAugust × #DailyMovieSketch]The Matrix (1999)Directed by The WachowskisI recently re-watched all three Matrix movies on @netflix (before they disappeared from the platform on 31-Jul). It has been several years since I saw them. The first one I had seen a few months before I was to start my Engineering course, and the second one, was before I was to start my Management course. And the third one was the first movie I watched on an IMAX screen back when Prasad's Multiplex had a real 70mm IMAX system. This was all before Instagram and Facebook, I remember friends discussing the movies to no end (@kashyapchandra had an explanation all written out), and there is even an ASCII version of the first movie that was posted online.Rewatching them now, you can make out how well made the first is – the style, visual effects, action sequences all still hold up today. The first movie probably is the more restrained one of the lot, the sequels indulge in a bit of excess in everything, but they were still very good movies. This is a classic shot from the first movie where Morpheus (Laurence Fishburne) reveals to Neo (Keanu Reeves) that humanity is being used as a power source for the machines that have taken over the world, and that people are living in a simulation called The Matrix. I drew this with my favourite 0.5mm 2B mechanical pencil on paper, the battery top was coloured with a Prismacolor pencil. Normally I convert my drawings to B&W after I scan them, but here I left the colour on the battery obviously, and also let the yellowish colour of the paper show through in Morpheus's glasses.This was drawn for the #aninchaugust challenge where the goal is to make drawings that fit into an inch square.I will post a photo of this on @karthikabhiram as well. #362 / 1-Aug-18
