waaahhh wah wahhh

My tribute to what should be one of the greatest movies of all time. Sergio Leone's The Good, The Bad and The Ugly. Caricaturing these three was a real treat, they each have such interesting faces that are perfect for exaggeration.

The Good

Clint Eastwood as Blondie

The definition of BAD ASS.

Had to have the squinty eyes. Had to have the cigar. Had to have the poncho even tho he only wore it during the end. Clint was the easiest to caricature.

The Bad

Lee Van Cleef as Angel Eyes

A critic once said that Lee Van Cleef's eyes can burn holes through the movie screen. I had that in mind when I was drawing him. Also, Lee's middle finger on his right hand is clipped off from an accident. Coudln't resist drawing that.

I knew he had to have a pointy nose, protruding cheek bones and a long face, but as you can see I had a little trouble. Still had to keep a likeness going on.

and The Ugly

Eli Wallach as Tuco

My dad saw this drawing and asked if it was Joey Fatone from Nsync.

Eli was also difficult. He's jewish but plays a mexican in the movie, but I kept making him look mexican and it wasn't working. Since he's so vocal in the film I really tried to make his caricature one that would have you hearing his voice when you saw it.

Well I hope you all enjoyed. Adios amigos.
