Week 25 - the Crone by Andrew Charipar
OK, this is me once again going in a different direction.
This weeks subject at Illustrious Bits Sketch Blog was Movie Monsters.
I personally think Monsters are suppose to scare you. I started thinking about Movie Monsters when I was a kid and I was fascinated with the classics. Dracula, the Creature from the Black Lagoon, Frankenstein (I loved that one) and none of them really scared me. Even the modern Movie Monsters (Freddy, Jason and so forth) never really scared me either... they just made me laugh. But the one, the ONE Monster that actually Scarred me... was the Crone from the Disney animated movie Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
We owned the movie on VHS and whenever her scenes came on the screen, I hide my head under a pillow or left the room... she literally scared the crap out of me. I even had a Snow White art book and there was a full page, full color picture of her and I memorized the page number and whenever I was looking through the book, I would skip that page, avoiding it EVERYtime.
This was actually a very difficult drawing for me... I had to do my Google searching... in fear.
