30 Day Movie Challenge Day 16- 70's movie
I don't know if any of you have seen this movie, but it is one of my all time favorites. Aguirre, The Wrath of God is a 1972 film directed by Werner Herzog, about a group of explorers searching for treasure in South America, while their leader goes slowly insane. In this illustration, I tried to show the jungle reaching out to ensnare Aguirre, as he loses what's left of his sanity. The style of this piece is a little different from what I usually do, but doing these movie challenges allows me to try different styles and approaches on a case by case basis.
