30 Film Females: Labyrinth (1986 – again!)

Filed under: 30 Film Females — ootastic @ 2:38 pm

I’m not even halfway thought this blog series yet, but sometimes I get ideas how to illustrate films for years I’ve already covered.  Labyrinth was a close runner-up to Aliens in 1986 and I wanted to draw a portrait of the central character, gamely played by a teenage Jennifer Connelly, in the style of a maze from a children’s puzzle book. I actually ended up using a simple single continuous line – can you discover where it starts and ends? I can’t find a decent copy of the photo I used as inspiration, but it was something like this, which was apparently the basis for this alternate plot twist – after a long day entertaining my toddler, I can sometimes empathise!  My drawing time coincides with TV catch-up and this picture was finished while watching The Descendants.
