Another submission for my favorite movies series. Tommy Boy. I've got this one written down as my #8 favorite movie. I'm starting to get to the part of the top ten that's really unclear. I've come to the conclusion that numbers 7-15 are in a state of constant flux, so what I'm going to do is just pick movies that I think would be fun to draw. The quantifying of one's cherished movies is a difficult undertaking. It's like picking a favorite child.
So far Chris Farley has been by far the most difficult caricature for this series. I'm not very pleased at all with how his face looks, but I spent HOURS on it without satisfaction, so I threw in the towel. (Edit: I picked up the towel again and worked on the face a bit more. I also made him a little bigger in the picture, and made his hair messier) I also referenced the cover of the Sound of Music DVD even though I've never even seen that movie. So just to be clear... Sound of Music has no place in my top ten list.
Finally got around to doing that Christopher Walken caricature that I've been telling people I'd finish. In case you all don't get the reference, there was a Fatboy Slim music video for the song Weapon of Choice that came out about six years ago with Walken dancing around a hotel lobby, and eventually flying around. That video was the moment I realized that Christopher Walken is the coolest man alive. I love it that the creepiest guy in Hollywood always tries to work a dance scene into his movies. Brilliant.
Anyway, I specifically told Waikikimiki ([link]) I'd draw this, and she reminded me a couple of times. So this one is for her. Sometimes it just takes that bit of motivation.
a character i sketched a while ago then scanned the drawing and printed the rough on bristol. From there i did a gouache painting. I think its similar to chris farley's character on saturday night live (Matt Foley Motivational speaker).
