Ladyhawke by HollyTheTerrible Ladyhawke by HollyTheTerrible
So I grew up watching Ladyhawke (that Richard Donner film from the 80’s). Even with all the Matthew Broderick and the Alan Parsons music score (which did not age well) littered throughout it, THIS movie still continues to hold a special place in my heart.

Art Details:
Mixed media (mostly acrylic paints) on 11” x 14” bristol heavy weight paper. Touch-ups and color correction were done on the computer after scanning the illustration also. Started and finished in the summer of 2013. Ladyhawke is not owned by me, this is just fanart and I make no profit from this illustration.

I love this film.  I, too, grew up with it.  It is much underrated these days.

Wonderful! Your unique art is very enjoyable.
This movie brings back good memoires... I've always though of myself as possibly being a descendant of "the mouse"...

Whatever else you might say about Matthew Broderick, Mouse had a lot of the great lines.

"I fully expect to meet you at the Pearly Gates, little thief."
"I'll meet you there, father, even if I have to pick the lock."

I was once greatly entertained to hear the title theme playing after a bird show at a zoo. As I recall, the last bird of the show was a hawk.

I'm generally open to this or that actor, so I don't mind what I've seen of him (all...two movies that I recall offhand). That aside, I still remember first watching Ladyhawke about twenty years ago. Thanks to this, I may have to dig out my copy and watch it again. I didn't expect many people to know it, let alone make art of it, so my stream of thought when I came across this was more or less "Huh. What's thi—Ladyhawke?! Oh, no way."

As a result, I blame you for certain Alan Parsons music that has been stubbornly stuck in my head. :shakefist:
