~ It's just a minor sketch... ~
And now for a bit of early 80's nostalgia from D.C. and the Beltway: Minor Threat:
Did these while having youtube clips of the band playing in the background. Tried not to pause or dwell too long looking at the footage while drawing - which actually helped I thought.
Anyhow, the drawings are pretty loose and sloppy.
And I know, there's something to be said about clarity when doing crowd scenes. But trust me, if you watch the video, you'll see what I mean...
Some links to other clips where the audience is being tossed around in a dryer. (This show's happening inside of a replica pirate ship, by the way):
-"Seeing Red" (This one's got a double stagedive at about 0:36)
-"Stand up" (First song of the set. Audience literally explodes within 0.5 seconds. Guy with a whistle jumps onstage and directs traffic.)
-"Little Friend" (Breakdown near the end is pretty off the hook - there's at least one jumpkick to the face.)
-"I Don't Wanna Hear It" (Michael Jackson launches off stage at about 1:03.)
-"Sob Story" (Although not the fastest or most intense song, the last part between 1:13 and 1:40 captures for me why I dug on this band so much.)
-"Betray" (Pretty much says it all. They fully throw themselves into the song, with some sharp Sinatra dance moves near the end.)
