I was asked by a cool French art gallery (Galerie Chappe) to create a drawing from the new Disney film "Tron: Legacy". They want to organize a "Tron" exhibition in February to coordinate with the French launch of the film.
So last night, in order to get inspiration, I went to the local multiplex to see the 2010 remake of the 1982 original, also starring Jeff Bridges.
The graphics and FX were certainly cool, but the story was difficult for me to engage in. First, I never really played electronic games. Maybe pong once or twice. Secondly, the concept seemed beyond far-fetched. I knew it was sci-fi, but if there must be some small connection to reality and in "Tron: Legacy", I couldn't find it.
It was cool to see Jeff Bridges as a young guy (I don't know how they did that!) and Michael Sheen channeling David Bowie and Richard Simmons is a hoot!
I score "Tron: Legacy" a C-
Here are some of the sketches of my finished art.
