Sketchbook- Life Aquatic cast by Buuya Sketchbook- Life Aquatic cast by Buuya
From my sketchbook... I have no scanner, but a crappy quality digicam will do :lol:

Some quick sketches of the funky-fun characters of 'Life Aquatic', including (left to right-ish):

The jaguar shark, Werner, Vikram Ray,Oseary Drakoulius, Steve Zissou, Bill Ubell, Cody the three-legged pirate dog, Ned Plimpton (ie Kingsley Zissou), Vladimir Wolodarsky, Eleanor Zissou, Alistair Hennessay, Klaus Daimler, Jane Winslet-Richardson, and that glowing jellyfish... thing ;)

Yay. :)

I love Alistair, and Klaus, and, well, everyone. It's one of my favourite movies, for sure, and the character designs are excellent. SPEEDOES! :lol:

I should have drawn speedoes. Damn. And head-radios. Oh well, next time :D

For those of you who have seen the movie... who is your favorite character(s)?

> pen+ ink brush + red drawing ink + pencil crayon (with mild PS touchups- the scan ruined it)
> about 30 mins

Full view, or the pirates will come for you... and you'll have to play poker o__O

Absolutely amazing film. You've done a great job here, love it. Klaus is probably my favorite, but it's hard to say for sure. Ho!

I love this!!!! You captured everyone wonderfuly!

Just re watching this movie after seeing Fantastic Mr. Fox, acutally want to watch all Wes Anderson films again, God, I want to live in his world :) I think my favorite character was Klaus, I love he how only wore shorts the whole time, he cracked me up. Also loved Jeff Goldbloom's character, because, well... it's Jeff Goldbloom

I think the only character you forgot was Seu Jorge , the guy playing acoustic David Bowie songs in whatever language he was singing in. :)

Nice form, you got a kind of Cal Arts, Disney-ish technique the pros used to teach. Get a job in animation! (If you don't already.)

I love Darjeeling Limited, so I am pretty sure I would like this one...but I have heard some people say it's not nearly as good...

What are your thoughts?

haha. The fact that you drew Cody so stick-figure like, after you drew everybody else so well really strikes me funny. I really like the expression you did on the Bond Company Stooge.
