[#DrawWithMango × #DailyMovieSketch]Face/Off (1997)Directed by John WooThe penultimate drawing for @mangopenciler's #90snostalgia Art Challenge. Since a new theme is going to be announced tomorrow, I thought I'd get my last couple of entries done. I initially planned to do 10 drawings, one sketch of a movie from every year in the decade. However I'm now doing 9, and would post a collage of all of them.This is the John Woo film "Face/Off" from 1997, the movie about an FBI agent swapping faces with a dangerous terrorist! It's an entertaining action movie and probably the most John Woo-esque movie among the Hollywood movies he has made.I have a lot of memories associated with this movie. At around this time I discovered the works of John Woo (watched A Better Tomorrow, The Killer, Hard Boiled, etc). In this year, I even wrote an article about his movies (mind you, no internet then) for a college magazine (which didn't get published, but it was fun working on it). I did sketches of the movie and was a fan of its style and action.Apparently the movie was initially pitched as a science fiction action movie set in the future but after Woo came on board, it was changed to the present day, as the mechanics of the face swap weren't important, and Woo wanted to explore what would happen if a cop and a criminal swap identities. It's a lot of fun and I definitely should rewatch this one.I drew the face of John Travolta during the face swap procedure (since the movie didn't employ any computer generated effects, the crew actually built latex replicas of the two actors' bodies with detachable faces!) The drawing was done with @ns1pen and Bic multi colour ballpoint pen on A6 @brustro sketchbook and scanned. Coming up next — a movie from 1999. One of my all time favourite movies ever.#faceoff #johntravolta #nicolascage #johnwoo #ballpointpen #inksketch #ns1pen#433 / 31-Mar-19
