Week 14 sketches: Stalker

I can understand why a lot of people find Tarkovsky's Stalker boring. We're perhaps too saturated in ideas of what a film should be: fast-paced, action-packed. Stalker has a very independent sort of narrative. But for a visual artist, it's a real reasure trove.

I had painted a scene from the film years back, and now that I watched it again, I sat down to sketch the characters. From top left, counter-clockwise: the Professor, Stalker, the Writer, Stalker's wife, Monkey (their daughter).

  1. Amazing! And it's nice to see someone else do fan-art of this! :)
