When my boyfriend and I started dating, one of the first things we did was educate me about films I had never hear of. One of those films was Wes Anderson's Royal Tenenbaums. I fell in love with it and with Anderson's other films. I started creating art inspired by the film and experimenting with a new style.
I learned how to use liquid ink in a drawing class at Herron School of Art and Design. During this project, I had the opportunity to experiment with the ink and I found that it allowed me to do some reasonably fine detail work as well as a blurred/less detailed background. To add more details in the image, where I wanted the main focus to be, I used a fine-tip ball-point pen. In addition to the black and grey I added pops of color. I love the color palette that Wes Anderson implements in all of his films -- his attention to detail is awe-inspiring -- so I decided to highlight the color in each scene with watercolor details.
I watched this movie countless times, scouring every minute of it for the perfect scene to depict these characters that I had grown so fond of; their stories, struggles and personalities needed to be represented.
