A Clockwork Orange


New sketches from a film.
This time, the timeless and unclassifiable masterpiece: Stanley Kubrick's"A Clockwork Orange" (1971) (La Naranja Mecánica)
Based on the novel of the same title by Anthony Burgess.
Starring: Alex DeLarge (great Malcolm McDowell), some kind of anti-hero, a young man whose principal interests are ultra-violence and Beethoven.
You can find tons of terrific visual contents in this film. Every shot is a lesson on how composing a scene and
Copy and learn from all the shots you can (it's like a master course in "Kubrick's School") I'll post some of this shots, but now...a few quick sketches of Alex in action... (pencil on paper and a little color with multiply layers)

Ah, such accurate sketches I knew the film before I even looked at the title! It is indeed a classic, even if it is one we've only been able to access legally in the UK since Kubrick passed on.

I love the idea of taking sketches from films like this, I sometimes do quick sketches from quiz shows when the panellists ar enice and static. ;)
