I couldn't miss this one... The moment I read that this week's theme for IF was 'Double', the first thing that came to my mind was this scene from the Bollywood blockbuster Amar Akbar Anthony, with Amitabh Bachchan looking into the mirror..
He's just come back after a drunken brawl with a Police Inspector and looks into the mirror and severely rebukes himself - actually his image - for having drunk so much and then picked up a fight with the inspector... My brother and I had loved this scene so so so much, we would have watched it a couple of ten times!! My favorite dialog in the whole set of dialogs was 'Dekh apna thopda aina mein jaakar dekh, kitna maara tere ko, kitna maara..' (Go look at your face in the mirror - look how much he's beaten you, just how much!!!) I loved that he tells his own image to go see itself in the mirror LOL..
And it only gets funnier, when he decides that he's going to medicate his (the image's) wounds, and gets irritated that he (it) moves so much... LOL I can still laugh at the scene!!
This is just watercolors.. on some watercolor paper (some cheap sketchbook that I had bought sometime, that just says 'Watercolor Artist Pad').. The paper measures 5"x7", but my drawing, as usual, is just a proportion of it :( I know there is scope for improvement - but I don't know what needs to be done... What do you say...?
I thought I would share the reference 'image' too here (it was actually a screenshot of a paused scene!!)
(For the scene you can go to Youtube)
