[#AnInchAugust × #DailyMovieSketch]The Matrix Reloaded (2003)Directed by The WachowskisAs I mentioned in yesterday's post, I re-watched the Matrix trilogy on Netflix recently, and therefore yesterday's and today's entries for the #AnInchAugust challenge (the goal being to make drawings that fit in an inch square) are based on those movies. The first Matrix movie was a more self contained story, the sequels which were released six months apart, expand a lot upon the world established in the first film. They build Agent Smith (Hugo Weaving) as the antithesis of Neo / The One. Another plot thread set up is the approach of the Machine swarm to the human city of Zion, and the prophecy that the War between the humans and machines will finally end, and Neo holding the key to that.The sequels feel much more comic bookish than the original, and being bigger budgeted, take everything to the next level. I do feel they went overboard in certain places though. But no one can deny the singular vision of The Wachowskis, which make these films worth watching.This is a drawing of Monica Bellucci as Persephone from the sequel. Drawn with 0.5mm 2B mechanical pencil on paper and scanned. I don't think I got her likeness very well though.Tomorrow: “The Matrix Revolutions”! #363 / 2-Aug-18#thematrix #matrix #thematrixreloaded #persephone #monicabellucci #pencilart #miniatureart
