[#DrawWithMango × #DailyMovieSketch]Hellboy (2004) Directed by Guillermo del ToroHellboy (2019) Directed by Neil MarshallThis time, the theme for @mangopenciler's Art Challenge is #ThenAndNow. I watched "Hellboy" on Thursday, and thought, I'd do a sketch featuring both the film versions of the character.I have liked the Hellboy character since the early 2000s. When the first adaptation came out I read some of the books, and became a fan of Mike Mignola's artwork, especially his use of chiaroscuro and deep blacks. Del Toro's movies always are personal, and I enjoyed his adaptation, with Ron Perlman owning the role. The movie even had a fantastic poster by Drew Struzan.Fast forward 15 years, and we have what was supposed to be the second sequel but instead became an R rated reboot. "Stranger Things"'s David Harbour plays the role here, the world's best paranormal investigator, who is up against Milla Jovovich's villain, the Blood Queen who if she comes back to power, will unleash a new plague upon humanity.The movie is entertaining and took advantage of the R rating, providing quite a bit of blood and violence and also swearing in the dialogue. This made it a very different take from del Toro's. The movie has been getting bad reviews, I think it definitely doesn't deserve those and it's better than they indicate. I can understand the criticism though, as the movie felt very rushed, with a lot that is crammed into the runtime, with undeveloped characters. I enjoyed it though but found that it's one of those movies you won't remember much of, once you leave the theatre. I liked all the R rated stuff but got annoyed at our censors for making cuts despite giving the movie an Adult rating. Hope I'll get to see the uncut version soon. The acting was good, Harbour and Jovovich give it their all, and the action scenes were well done. So, I would recommend watching the movie.I drew both the versions of Hellboy, this was done with Bic multi colour ballpoint pens and Gelly Roll pen on A6 @Brustro sketchbook and scanned.#hellboy #guillermodeltoro #neilmarshall#ronperlman #davidharbour #strangerthings#ballpointpen #inksketch#437 / 13-Apr-19
