Them by Andantonius Them by Andantonius
Something quick done today, a little over two hours. I just watched The Village last night and promptly wanted to paint red capes in creepy woods, and I also wanted to get back in to using Painter after a long hiatus. Hence, this image. =P

Not the greatest painting ever, but I definitely learned some cool things from it.

Oh my gosh! I just finished watching The Village too and this is amazing! I really hope you get a chance to do some more artworks of the beast or characters from the film :D

That's awesome.
I enjoy using Painter more than I do Photoshop, but there are certain things that are easier to do in PS. That's why I keep both. :D
I keep telling my wife I wish there was a way to meld the two programs together. It'd be the greatest digital art program ever.

You know, no many people I know of liked The Village but it's still one of my favorite movies - and you've captured in (digital) paint exactly what I love about the visual aesthetic of the movie. Something about the stark, dangerous red in the uninviting landscapes just works for me!

Yeah, I get why people criticize it for the kind of unfulfilling ending, but I love it for the cinematography and the music is gorgeous. It may not be a spectacularly clever mind-bending twist ending, but the mood and atmosphere it creates is really powerful.

Like many, many movies there's a lot that could have been done to improve the writing of The Village but I agree that the cinematography and the well-paced soundtrack really could teach a lot to other directors. From what I remember the soundtrack was actually very short and sparse in comparison to the rest of the movie which allowed it to really pack a punch when it was present - not something you find very often in movies nowadays when you can practically predict what's going to happen based on the chord progression in the soundtrack. And the suspense was good suspense: not everything has to be about the major gore-factor.

Anyway I think that Shyamalan got pegged (read: may have pegged himself) as "the twist" director and that's just not something I feel one should base an entire career upon so early on: if anything The Village and his other (early) works should be an example of how to create that emotional atmosphere that makes a twist possible, even if the "twists" in his movies weren't always the most twisty. Atmosphere is almost entirely ignored or pushed to the side in many blockbusters in favor of big budget effects, which I think is a trend worth re-examining.

(And then The Happening and The Last Airbender happened and I wept many days, realized Shyamalan did it to himself and refused to watch any subsequent movies of his. I will not taint my enjoyment of his early works with the self-congratulatory cinema-back-patting he seems to be directing now *she says like she's directed that many movies in her life*.)
