Hi, here's a painting I just finished of Margot from "The Royal Tenenbaums." If I can make the time I'd like to paint of each of the main characters from the film.

This is really really nice...love it : O ) hope that you can make the time and do the rest of the cast and looking forward to seeing that : O )

The Royal Tenenbaums is one of my favourites. I cant wait to see The Darjeeling Limited. i just saw The Life Aquatic at Christmas there for the first time, what did you make of that one?

Lovely!
I could see that style used for an animated intro to a show!

Thanks everyone!

RocknOats, yes it is gouache, about 5x7 inches big.

Michael, I didn't like "The Life Aquatic" much, I thought Wes Anderson pushed aside story and character for the sake of his quirkiness. I liked "The Darjeeling Limited" alot better, but still think "Rushmore" and "Tenenbaums" are his best.

yep, yep I have to say that The Life Aquatic could have been better, it did indeed seem to me that it could have been a lot stronger in the story department. It's really quite a odd film, how it suddenly jumps to some fire fight sequences with guns twice in the film...lol, and you wont see another film like it anywhere (well...not that i know of) so in that regard its quite memorable.

There are some laughs in it, but ultimatly its a film that could have been better I think. I recorded it off the TV though, so i'll give it another viewing eventually. Who knows, it may get better with each watch, I think that there was such huge preasure on him after The Royal Tenenbaums because it really was a five star film.

Yup, I agree. He came back better with "Darjeeling Limited" though by keeping the story simple and doing what he does best, I look forward to whatever he does.
