Col. Hans Landa   (Aka Christopher Waltz) by Paul-Shanghai Col. Hans Landa   (Aka Christopher Waltz) by Paul-Shanghai
My entry in the Tarantino Fan Club end of year competition [link] - although as it is my group, in the unlikely event that I come anywhere near 1st, 2nd or 3rd place I will relinquish the triumph and hand the baton to the next person :)

The character from Tarantino's Movie - Inglorious Basterds is Col. Hans Landa( Aka the Jew Hunter) as played by Christopher Waltz, his role as the sadistic SS Officer in the 2nd world war won him some very prestigious awards, as well as world wide stardom. He played the role as all the best scary people do - in a calm, collected, unemotional way, but with a utterly ruthless sadistic side.

I liked this picture because of the way the light shone on his face and uniform, and the smoke coming from his nose after a large inhale on his pipe! Not one of my best drawings but still a lot of fun - again it has been sitting in a folder for a couple of months, and as I hadn't finished any other drawings this week I thought I should upload it :)

Usual suspects;
Bristol Board Smooth A3
Mechanical and Traditional Pencils 4H to 4B
Blending Stump, Tissues and erasers.

Great drawing ! you really did capture Landa's mood and especailly him :) I love mostly the longer hair which he laid back. I imagine how he would look if it had been combed vertically, parallel with his ear :D it would reach his chin even his neck :D it's truly nice what you did here ! Also I like very much the nazi uniform.

Glad you like this - it is an older piece, and i had a lot to learn about drawing (still do!). He has to be one of my favourite characters from the whole Tarantino series - menacing and scary in a cool, calm and professional manner - the worst (Best) kind of villain :)
Thanks for commenting - I do appreciate it :)

Well done ! But did you have a reference for this drawing or you've imagined this ? Because I don't know this picture of Hans Landa. :)

I used a screen grab from the film, a similar reference can be found here [link] as you can see i cropped the photo as I wanted to focus on Hans.

Awesome! You've really captured his expression and I really like the way you drew the light and the smoke :) He's 1 of the best villains ever I think ;D
I watched the movie again yesterday to pick a scene to draw for the contest I think I'll go with Shosanna in her awesome red dress :D
