The Temple of Doom

I've been trying out working just in Photoshop, I love it and find time passes. Through Twitter yesterday I came across this site, Stumpy Pencil, with wonderful new brushes to play with. I'm always so amazed and thrilled by the generosity of people sharing their time and effort online. I'll keep on drawing in analogue pencil too though, as don't want that skill to go downhill due to neglect.

I followed a link yesterday to Drew Struzan's website - I hadn't known his name, but am a long time admirer of his wonderful posters. 

Of the three movies (the fourth doesn't count to me, nor I imagine to lots of other fans) the second one was my favourite when I was little. Nowadays I'd pick Raiders or The Last Crusade always, but something about this one - maybe the kid Data, the bugs, the bit where the baddie snatches out a guy's still beating heart - all appealed to a younger me. 

I've got to get away from cats for a bit though, going to try my hand some more at drawing people, and not let myself get demoralised by initial rubbish efforts...
