Heeeeeere's JOHNNY!


Isn't Jack Nicholson one of the coolest actors out there? He was made for the role as Jack Torrance in The Shining. He was so evil and mysterious in that role, but his performance was absolutely incredible! Also, one of my favorite Kubrick films. To me he's probably the best dramatic actor out there. No one can top him as far as I know.

Here's the picture I used as a reference. I think it's where he rises up after he kills the cook, who came to the rescue to save the wife and child. My drawing doesn't do any justice to it though. It's such a striking picture! Love the expression on his face. I was actually trying to caricature him a bit and make him seem a bit more cartoony, but I didn't like how it looked so I went for a semi-realistic almost caricatured look in my drawing and wanted to capture the scariness that the picture portrayed.

I've said it once, I'll say it again. Nicholson is possibly the evilest looking human being alive.

Thanks, Tim!

Thanks, Kali! Yeah, everyday, 31 drawings in total does sound a bit intense, but I'd like to give it a try. So far it's been fun!

Pedro Vargas said...

Psychotime--yeah he looks really evil, especially in this movie, but he's also too damn cool!
