FULL. METAL. JACKET.

Sunday, August 8th, 2010

I tried to watch this movie while I worked, but I had to start it over again and give it my full attention with my finger hovered over the print-screen key.  Had I not been watching, I would have missed the soldier telling a horrific tale to the reporter while taking smile breaks for the photographer. I would have missed all the appealing composition of so many scenes.

I started this image from memory, then after I felt I got my version down I referred back to my “Full Metal Jacket” folder to see what detail would be handy to add back in.

Below is the scan of my drawing, and the line art cleaned up. Colors all Photoshop.
