80's movies

I love love LOVE 80's movies! They are so fun to watch! I have been doing speed paintings during the Christmas break between semesters, just to keep practicing digitally. This started as a speed painting, but I was loving working on it so I decided to pull it together and work a few more hours on it. Can you guess who this is? And what movie he is from? He's from an 80's classic...(don't scroll down too far unless you're wanting to see the answer)

So I have been hearing a ton about the Breakfast Club and I have been dying to watch it. Then one day I saw it was on tv so I watched it and it was great! This is Judd Nelson in a clip from one of the scenes in that movie. If you haven't seen it I highly recommend watching it. I know I could work on it, and I still might, but I guess we'll see :)

The final exam for Children's Book Illustration was to illustrate three consecutive pieces for a story, maintaining character consistency. The story began with...

A stormy night on the sea and three pirates fighting to get to shore

They reach the shore and marvel at how beautiful the island is that they've landed on.

They build shelter and enjoy a feast

Under the Sea

Like my rendition of the Little Mermaid?? Okay, okay, I'm just kidding...but she does have red hair. This project was to create a fantasy world. We had to follow certain guidelines to reach our final pieces and it was really interesting to see how others pieces turned out. Here is what I came up with. Enjoy!
