Metropolis | the Thin Man by Tyshea Metropolis | the Thin Man by Tyshea
Earlier this week I finally watched the classic masterpiece by Fritz Lang, Metropolis
While the story of the movie was a little disappointingly simple, I can definitely see why it's heralded as such a great work, and I'm glad I watched it.

While there were a lot of visuals I loved from the film, the character that got to me the most was Joh Fredersen's agent, "the Thin Man."
There was something really imposing and stoic about him that struck me like no other.
Sadly he didn't amount to that much in the film as far as a villain goes, but he was my favorite.

I might draw the MachineMan, Hel, but I doubt I'll have the motivation for it :lol:

Hope you guys like this though, and I do suggest you watch Metropolis if you're interested in cinematography.




And don't worry, me and Bee are working on PT!
Things have been kind of hectic for both of us, but there is progress!
In the meantime, just a small reminder that we have a:

Tumblr (for works in progress, small behind-the-scenes, and inspiration music/photos/fashion)

And a dA Group, which was made earlier last week :)
All our collaboration works will go there in the future, so be sure to watch the group!

he was my favorite character~ I love how the movies vision of the future was pretty close to how it is today

Same, I loved his presence compared to all the other characters :)
And I think a lot of scifi tends to do that a lot, which is kind of scary haha

now that you mention it that's true, and that kinda sucks because I'm rather scared of robots

Very nice. I'm not sure he was meant to be a villian as such. He was Joh's eyes and ears and sort of acted as his conscience in a way. Then again I could be wrong. The film is a tad simplistic but I love it. Give the Giorgio Moroder version a viewing. That's trippy.

Also thanks for the suggestion, I'll look into it! Haha, nothing like a trippy movie

I'm not much of a movie person, so I don't know who this is or what your talking about. I like his distinct face though, and the old time-y look to it! It makes me feel nostalgic for some reason.

I'm not typically a movie person either, but Metropolis is a classic, and I think you might get a lot out of it :)
Give it a try if you have time

Lol, even when it came out people thought it was 'disappointingly simple'. I'm watching it right now. Maria is so...hypnotically beautiful. I can see why Freder fell in love with her.

I have to agree on Maria though, there was something crazy-magnetic about her huge eyes!

Now did you watch the restored version with the previously lost footage (which incidentally involves the Thin Man) or did you watch an older version?

Either way I quite like it. He is an interesting character for not being a crucial character. Course no one tops Hel with me.

I saw the restored version, thankfully :)

Hel was definitely memorable, but I'm sad that she didn't stay in her android form for the whole movie...it was infinitely more frightening :XD:

Yes, only way to see it.

And I dunno. I like the character shift that Helm brings to Maria and Hel (Though I guess android form is her as well.)

Lol, when I was going through my updates, I caught this out of the corner of my eye, and thought, "There is no way Ty drew the Thin Man". Which quickly devolved into, "OMGOMGOMGOMFGOMFGGGGGGG SOMEONE ELSE HAS WATCHED METROPOLIS! I AM NO LONGER FOREVER ALOOOOOOONE!" XD
