Day 284

Day 284 of the #365drawingchallenge continues #31DaysOfHalloween with the possessed killer doll, Chucky from Child’s Play. I had a lot of fun drawing this one, coming up with my own pose and style. I didn’t feel as much pressure to do it realistically as my recent drawings since it is not based on a real person. I like this kind of drawing because there is so much iconic about the character that it is easy to capture his look and make him recognizable without being locked into an exact look. And I wanted to incorporate his look from the later movies where his face is all mangled. These movies are pretty fun, and I’ve seen all the originals. I only watch part of the reboot, didn’t care for it. These movies were good because they embraced what they were, campy fun with enough humor mixed in with the horror. My cousin was traumatized when he was about eight and my dad put one of the Child’s Play movies on and he saw a couple of particularly gruesome minutes. For years he had an intense fear of Chucky that would send him running when he saw him anywhere. It’s not the nicest thing to say, but I found it pretty hilarious.
