The Book of Eli — Drawing and Video

Monday · 10 Aug 09 · 01:52 AM IST | Posted by Karthik | Category: Art

Recently, I got to see the trailer for The Book of Eli, an upcoming science-fiction action movie starring Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman and Mila Kunis.  The trailer was released at Comic-Con International, and looks quite nice.  The movie will be released in 2010 and is directed by Allen and Albert Hughes.  I was quite inspired by the trailer and so I did this drawing after watching it —

The Book of Eli — Drawing by Karthik Abhiram

Nothing fancy, the drawing was done with ballpoint pen, a photo was taken and that was coloured digitally.  The drawing was intended to be part of a larger piece, with the movies that I want to see in 2009-10 (similar to what I did last year).  I also filmed footage while drawing this, so I put that together into a video and uploaded it to YouTube.

You can watch the video by clicking here or on the above image.  I think the video came out pretty nicely.  The music track I used in the video is the "Survivalism (Celebmix)" by Celebutante, from the open-source Nine Inch Nails Remix Album, The Limitless Potential.
