Guess That Movie Week 92

SamuraiFrog here once again; Becca's got an art show tonight, so she's asked me to fill in again.

1. "I forgot my mantra." Yum-Yum

2. "Nature, Mr. Allnut, is what we are put in this world to rise above." Drake

3. "You are a monster and a monster in that order."

4. "If I am to be anything as a painter, I’ve got to break through the iron wall between what I can feel and what I can express." (Mark)

5. "We're not gonna get rid of anybody! We're gonna stick together, just like it used to be! When you side with a man, you stay with him! And if you can't do that, you're like some animal, you're finished! We're finished! All of us!"

6. "I don't trust this kid any further than I can throw him."
"Well, with your bad knee, Ed, you shouldn't throw anybody." (Scoops)

7. "Your finger hired the crew?"
"No, that's silly. The man who lives in my finger hired the crew." Alex

8. "Okay, but after dinner, don't put any of those old cheap moves on me. It's different now."
"Oh, no; I have all new cheap moves." Matt

9. "Let's go home, Debbie." Drake

10. "Perhaps you're interested in how a man undresses. You know, it's a funny thing about that. Quite a study in psychology. No two men do it alike. You know, I once knew a man who kept his hat on until he was completely undressed." Alex

11. "Could I speak to the drug dealer of the house?"
"I beg your pardon?"
"It's a beautiful day and we're out killing drug dealers--are there any in the house?" Matt

12. "We Romans are rich. We've got a lot of gods. We've got a god for everything. The only thing we don't have a god for is premature ejaculation but I hear that's coming quickly." Tommy

13. "Yes, I was stoned out of my mind. Who do I have to be now? I mean, I could be Mother Teresa and it wouldn't make a difference, what I did. Did I sacrifice every bit of... love I'm allowed for this life because I killed our little brother?" Tommy

14. "No bucks, no Buck Rogers." Dean Wormer

15. "This from the guy who still owes me ten bucks over that bet about which was going to be the bigger movie: E.T. or Krush Groove?"
"Fuck you, 'cause time is gonna tell on that one." (Scoops)

16. "What's this guy supposed to be, the ultimate badass?"
"Mmm, no, you don't understand. He'd kill you just for... inconveniencing him." Tommy

17. "Who gives a shit what you believe! In 30 seconds you'll be dead, and I'll blow this place up, and be home in time for corn flakes." Matt

18. "Life seemed so sweet and so sad, and so hard to let go of in the end. But hey, man, every day is a brand new deal, right? Just keep on working and something's bound to turn up."

19. "Go, and never darken my towels again!" Matt

20. "Counting cards isn't illegal. It's frowned upon, like masturbating on an airplane."
"I'm pretty sure that's illegal, too."
"Maybe since 9/11 when everyone got so damn sensitive. Thanks a lot Bin Laden!" (Scoops)

**Update**
And we have a winner!!! Congrats to cinematic smarty pants and writer extraordinaries Matt who wins this week's contest with 4 correct guesses! Way to go Matt! You may collect your award below:

A Few Recent Commissions

With the gracious permissions of the folks who requested these, I thought I would share some photographs of the drawings that I had completed as part of the recent commission drive. By the way my lighting set-up is not the best so some of the colors may look a bit wonky in the color photographs. These are only a few. At some point I'll do at least another post to share some more :)

The request: Tura Satana.

Notes: You can't draw Tura without her other Faster Pussycat mates. The finished piece is actually in color but the color photograph turned out too dark! Boo! Here is the piece in black and white before it was colored.



The Request: A drawing of a tiki using Elvis, Doctor Who and/or Godzilla.

Notes: I had a ton of fun drawing this one, throwing in Mothra, the Peanut Twins, Lilo and Stitch in the background.



The Request: Horror goddess Edwidge Fenech ala Kamandi or Flash Gordon in sort of a Deadwood-esque/ tiki bar.

Notes: I really loved the concept for this one and went with a sort of Alex Raymond feel for the backdrop.



The Request: The Bride of Frankenstein holding a skull and one high heeled boot resting on a headstone.

Notes: I had some fun with the Bride's bandages and the headstones, although I realize now this isn't a photograph of the final version. I added a bit more black detail to the headstones on the left.



The Request: The Bride of Frankenstein

Notes: The Bride was a popular choice as she should be :) This time I drew her getting dressed in the powder room. I had a lot of fun with the details in the background like the honeymoon photograph, his and her's towels and Well's vanishing cream!



The Request: Batgirl getting the upper hand on Wonder Woman with her magic lasso.

Notes: Seems like Wonder Woman was always getting tied up in the early days :) Notice Etta Candy in the background cheering her pal on like always :)

Robert Mitchum was a god. Seriously.
