War of the worlds


Hey gang--today's movie pic is War of the Worlds, the 1950's classic produced by George Pal. Cought a special anniversary screening the other day, which was fantastic, since I finally got to see it on the big screen. It still holds up remarkably well today, and I even got to meet Ann Robinson, the star of the movie. She was really nice and autographed my War of the Worlds poster.
As for the art, I wasn't really happy with how the final was looking, so I'm posting my sketch, which for some reason has a lot more energy, despite not being very polished. My first instinct was to draw the Martian death machines, but that's been done to death, so I wanted to do something a little different...hope you like it!
