Day 290

Day 290 of the #365drawingchallenge continues #31DaysOfHalloween with Pennywise from It. This is based off the 90s mini series where Tim Curry played the clown. I know there are a lot of people who grew up on the old one and rejected the new one on principle, but I like them both. The old one made a big impression on me when I was a kid and I wasn’t crazy about the new actor playing Pennywise when I first saw him, but now that both parts of the movie are out I gotta say I liked them a lot. The old one will always be special because I saw it at an impactful time and it’s nostalgic, but comparing them both the new ones pretty clearly have the advantage of a bigger budget and an adult rating. All that said, no one can replace Tim Curry. He’s a one of a kind performer, and while it’s debatable if he’s a good actor or just a cheesy scenery chewer, he is always very memorable. And I thought he was great. He scared me as a kid here. I debated drawing him in a more comedic pose or even his creepy face melting, but Iopted for this one because I thought it really captured him well.
