Mongol

Published by at 10:00 am under reviews,sketchbook,tools & tech

I saw Mongol recently on DVD. This movie is absolutely gorgeous. I just wish the story was as good as the direction, cinematography, costumes, etc, etc. They whitewash Genghis Khan, and they completely skip over the most interesting part: how did this guy rise to be leader of the most feared army in the world? However, like I said, it’s gorgeous, and I had a great time drawing from it. These sketches are all digital.

Anyone want to recommend a good book on Genghis Khan?

    What are you using to sketch digitally? Some really nice gesture drawings here Gareth.
