Heroes Commissions: Characters from Quentin Tarantino Movies

This is one of the more fun commissions I’ve gotten lately: Clarence and Alabama Worley from True Romance and Mr. Blonde from Reservoir Dogs.

Those are actually my two favorite Tarantino movies–and really the only two that I think hold up well over time. I loved Pulp Fiction when it came out but I re-watched it recently and it struck me as painfully self-indulgent in parts. Kill Bill I found unwatchable for that reason. I’ve heard that Inglourious Basterds is really good though, but I’ve not seen it yet.

Anyway:

I can still potentially take on another commission or two before Heroes Con this coming Friday, so if you have something in mind please contact me at the email address up top. See you at Heroes Con!

    These are great.

    How do you feel about Jackie Brown? I liked it a lot when it came out, but I haven’t watched it since.

  3. Ben says:

    @Kyle – Thanks!

    @Isaac – You know, I’d totally forgotten about Jackie Brown. That came out about the same time is Get Shorty, I think–and for some reason I’ve sort of merged them in my brain. I should probably go back and re-watch some of these movies before I make big blanket statements about them! There was some kind of Vampire/wild West mashup Tarantino thing as well, wasn’t there?

  5. Isaac says:

    Don’t Get Shorty and Jackie Brown both come from Elmore Leonard novels (and feature Michael Keaton playing the same role in both)? I’m working from memory there.

    The vampire thing you’re thinking of is probably From Dusk Till Dawn, which was a collaboration with Robert Rodriguez, and had some memorable work from Salma Hayek in it. Not a great movie by any means.
