I’ve been so busy I didn’t have time to work up a real “Sketch O’The Week”, so here’s something a little different. This is a very rough sketch for a park sample of Daniel Radcliffe, Rupert Grint and Emma Watson from the new Harry Potter movie. I stole the gag from an SNL skit. I didn’t finish it because compositionally it’s too out of whack. The drawing is too left-side heavy. I tried to compensate with the window behind them, but that won’t do the job. It’ll need to be reworked if I want to finish it. I was also thinking about having sparks shooting out of Harry’s wand if I moved them over to the right… but that would be pushing it in the family friendly theme park setting.
Incidentally, the family’s going to see the movie tonight. We are all big HP fans, and while the movies are not perfect they get more right than wrong. Movie review forthcoming… maybe. I never wrote a review of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer or Pirates of the Carribean: At World’s End and I saw both of those.
