Character Fan Art Feature – Baron Munchausen
So this week I chose Baron Munchausen from the film ‘The Adventures of Baron Munchausen.’ I chose this character because the film is just amazing beyond words. I have always has this vivid image in my head of when I was little, watching a film on the TV, the only part I remember was this man pulling himself out of the water by gripping onto himself and pulling himself up. This image had always been a mystery to me and everyone who I asked if they knew of such a film would just look at me as if I was crazy… Well this wasn’t the case! A few months ago I decided to try again to search the web for this film. It had to be real! And lo and behold my search proved fruitful and I slowly began to be reintroduced to this wondrous film! I immediately went and bought the film and it was just amazing!
So one of the first incredulous things we see Baron Munchausen do in the film is ride on a canon ball you understand at this point that this is not going to be an ordinary film!
Next, no reasoning behind this one other than I love these kind of sketches!
Next I chose a group fan art, because although the film is mainly about Baron Munchausen it is also about the people he meets!
The next is my favourite that I found, I feel it really embodies the character and his flamboyancy!
Lastly I thought we could finish on something a bit different like with the Boomerang Kid piece I did.
Though not fan art in the common sense of things I thought this costume Baron Munchausen woos the Ladies of Opulence by PhoenixForce85 is just so spot on and awesome that it should definitely get a mention!
