Movie Sketching

I second Bryan's post. I am in definite need of life drawing practice. In the meantime I find movie sketching pretty fun. These few pages are just quick sketches from a movie called Bell, Book and Candle.


Since I'm terrible with words here's a synopsis of the movie on IMDB:

"Gillian Holroyd is just your average, modern-day, witch, living in a New York apartment with her Siamese familiar, Pyewacket. But one day a handsome publisher, Shep Henderson walks into her building and Gillian decides she wants him--especially as it turns out he's marrying Merle Kittridge, an old poison penpal from Gillian's college days. So, Gillian casts a spell over Shep. But her powers are in danger of being exorcised by something stronger than the bell-book-and-candle routine: Love."

The first page of sketches is from the beginning of the movie. The female lead has a shop that sells African and Oceanic Primitive Art.


  1. I really like the drawing of the lady with the cat on the second page. That is the best one.

    I have no clue as to what is happening on the first page. I have never heard of this movie but it is either an art film or zany.

  2. I like the guy with the hat on the third page the best. But then again...I'm a sucker for the fedora.

  3. Haha...good point Steve. I should have included a description of what the movie is about. I've updated the post. =)

  4. Oh makes much more sense now.

  5. Ha! Well, now that that is cleared up...I am going to put this into the "art film" nonsensical category.

    I like the fedora guy too but the cat lady in the second page has the better line 'o action.
