I love the celebrity likenesses of the "She-Ra" characters. <3

I don't see how is this a parody. Anyways Christopher Walken would make an excellent Hordak. Great painting btw.

Nice work, this would be definetlly be very much campy movie, with those actors and costumes! :lol: I can imagine Christopher Walken as Hordak with his Newyorker accent would be hilarious :sarcasm:

Is that true about a movie? ... Chris Walken! I'd go see that - um no.
Nice work though - reminds me of Vallejo.

Great job on the likeness of the actors.How do you get your acrylics to be so "thin" ?
Reply
:iconmikemayhew:
mikemayhew Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2009  Professional General Artist
You can water acrylics down to the same way you can watercolor. Only difference is that the acrylic stays put, while watercolor will come off the paper and blend with the wash that is being put over it.

The only thing that really stands out to me as being off is how Bow is holding the bow. He doesn't look like he's got a very good grip on it. I don't think the two-finger grip technique is how Ollie does it. :)

I don't know. Looks a little too colorful to be a movie. If it were there'd probably be costumes with dark earth tone or black leather, armor plating and plenty of stitch lines. Keira Knightly's breasts would also be in CG, and the poster itself would be 90% Shadow.

...

On second thought, I like this image much better.

Keep in mind, though, that the D.O.A movie features women with small breasts (wtf), when the game itself prided itself on the jumbly-factor of its fighters.

I just said that because I heard a rumor that CG was used to "endow" Keira in "King Arthur" and with "She-Ra" being a potential franchise film, they would want to find a way to draw in as many viewers as possible.

Ah, Hollywood...

I'm not going to completely critique every little thing (what it takes to write an offical critique)

I'd just like to mention she-ra doesn't really resemble keira, but mainly because she has a super thin frame and erm, very small breasts. The rest of it is completely wonderful though :)
