War of the Worlds (2013)

'War of the Worlds- First Encounter' - This piece depicts a scene from H.G.Wells' novel, 'The War of the Worlds' and presents the moment when the alien life forms are discovered. I felt the distorted lines and gargantuan size of the martian helped emphasise the terror and oddity of the situation.

This piece was created using fibre tip fine liners, ranging from 0.05 to 0.3 nibs.

'War of the Worlds- Inside the House' - The second of a duet from Wells' novel, this piece depicts the scene within the farmhouse, into which the martians explored. Again distorted lines were used to create a feeling of how terrifying and bizarre the situation is, and extreme light was added to create a dramatic atmosphere.

This piece was created using fibre tip fine liners in 0.05-0.3 nibs.

Description

The following scenes were for a project on recreated classic novels. I chose to recreate two scenes from H.G.Wells' novel, ‘The War of the Worlds’. The scenes had to be in a chosen personal style, and show clearly the events of the book.
