classic film characters

10

Jason Voorhees is a character from the Friday the 13th series. He first appeared in Friday the 13th (1980) as the young son of camp cook-turned-murderer, Mrs. Voorhees, in which he was portrayed by Ari Lehman…Jason was not originally intended to carry the series as the main antagonist… 

The character has primarily been an antagonist in the films, whether by stalking and killing the other characters, or acting as a psychological threat to the protagonist, as is the case in Friday the 13th: A New Beginning. Since Lehman’s portrayal, the character has been represented by numerous actors and stuntmen, sometimes by more than one at a time; this has caused some controversy as to who should receive credit for the portrayal. Kane Hodder is the best known of the stuntmen to portray Jason Voorhees, having played the character in four consecutive films.

The character’s physical appearance has gone through many transformations, with various special makeup effects artists making their mark on the character’s design, including makeup artist Stan Winston….The trademark hockey goalie mask did not appear until Friday the 13th Part III…He has been seen as a sympathetic character, whose motivation for killing has been cited as being driven by the immoral actions of his victims and his own rage over having drowned as a child…Jason Voorhees’s hockey mask is a widely recognized image in popular culture.” (X)


Jason Voorhees has also been featured in a cross-over film with another iconic horror film character and serial killer, Freddy Krueger.

“I shall nurse him myself.” (p. 93)

Am I the only one who absolutely loves this scene? Like it is one of my favorites. Maurice literally wins the #BEST BOYFRIEND EVER award. He is SO unbelievably sweet and caring…it kills me every time I watch it.

 domesticfluff!Maurice is the BEST <3

Beauty and the Beast except it’s actually Handsome and the Beast and what I mean by that is that when Gaston goes to kill the Beast, all it takes is one look into those wild eyes to send him falling madly in love

West Side Story! 

Hey guys so inktober is over and it’s back to work (not that I never actually stopped). We had a recent assignment where we had to create or reimagine characters our way, put them in a line up and then later add them on our own add illustration. The add isn’t due for another two weeks but I finished the characters and I’m posting them here. I kinda have a love hate relationship with West Side Story. Love the Story, Hate the casting (except my girl Rita Moreno of course). So I figured this would be the best time to cast them myself. 

  • I made Maria the one in the sunflower dress. I based her off of a few Puerto Rican actresses and a little bit on some of my relatives, mostly my grandmother. My mom when through a real big yellow flower phase when I was younger too, so I made her dress with that pattern. I’m gonna have her in the ‘I Feel Pretty’ scene for the next part (thus the tissue crown and fabric).
  • I made Anita mostly based off of the pictures of my grandmother’s sisters in the 50s-60s. I noticed that while most of the casting is white (which makes no sense) Anita is the only one played by an actual Latina and of course she’s the most stereotypical portrayal of Latin women anyway. I decided to take that and flip it so I made her have more obvious Afro-Latina features because those are the kinds of Puerto Rican women the media don’t want to focus on. So of course my fav is gonna be beautiful and dark skinned. Going to have her in the ‘America’ music number on the roof. 
  • Bernarno is loosely based on a few cousins and a few actors. And I made him wear some clothes I saw some relatives wearing in the pictures that I thought were similar enough to the films costuming. Had to have him snapping on the side cuz it is iconic.
  • Finally, Tony is based on both the original actor and a few current actors. The clothes are almost entirely based off the film in the ‘Maria’ Music Number scene. Going to have him mid song on the final drawing. He might still need some tweaking but overall I’m really happy with a all of them.

I want a slasher film with a badass yet still feminine girl killing bitches without even chipping her nail polish or smudging her lipstick
