I feel sorry for Pattinson. The guy’s got everything. He’s got money, fame, work, and looks – yet, he has a girlfriend who doesn’t stay put. I don’t know what the lady is looking for. I mean, if she wanted out, why did she return to him after being with Rupert – it was an excellent point of exit. And if she really was in love with him then why didn’t she stay put after Pattinson accepted her apology and they got back together?
Here’s Robert Pattinson – looking exactly the way he must look these days:
I am a woman but I fail to understand the likes of Kristen Stewart. I find it easier to understand men. Men and Women are opposites – men are uncomplicated, women are complicated…all you need to do is look at Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart.
But then this post isn’t about Kristen Stewart – it also isn’t about the Twilight Saga, it’s about Edward Cullen or the beautiful dazzling vampire who falls in love with a mortal woman who eventually chooses vampirish immortality over spending her life with a mortal werewolf. I don’t know if I ever saw the fire of love and passion between Edward and Bella – I did see it between Jacob and Bella – but then that must be so because I really wanted Bella to choose Jacob and not lust over immortality and/or Edward.
But I digress again. I must talk about Edward Cullen a.k.a. Robert Pattinson, and nobody else.
So here’s a bit about Robert Pattinson:
This young English actor was born in 1986 and he first wowed us with his role of Cedric Diggory in one of the Potter films. Conceptually Cedric was supposed to be a handsome tragic hero, and Pattinson fitted in just right. Then he got to work in the Twilight Saga (a series of movies made upon Stephanie Meyer’s novels by the same name.) As Edward Cullen, Pattinson won the hearts of his young women viewers, and shot up the popularity charts. In 2008/9 People magazine called him one of the Sexiest Men Alive, then Vanity Fair called him The Most Handsome Man in the World. In 2010, TIME Magazine listed him as the 100 Most Influential People in the world and then Forbes Magazine said that he was one of them most powerful celebs – and now he is the richest Celeb in the world. These are just some of the awards that he got for being the sexiest, the most powerful, the richest celebrity ever – there are more, but my keyboard is threatening to go on strike and so I won’t continue with the list.
About this Caricature of Robert Pattinson:
I guess he is beautiful, but then I am blind to his beauty. All I see in his face is a wronged lover, a vampire who doesn’t fit into his community, a guy who’s got enough money to buy the entire merchandise in the men’s section of any designer’s boutique but who prefers to dress almost as shabbily as I do, and to top it all – a guy who really needs to throw Ms. Stewart out of his mind-space…and for good.
Here are some links to bring you up to date.
The most recent byte on this is that Pattinson has moved out of Kristen’s house – bag, baggage, and dogs!
How to Draw Robert Pattinson’s Caricature?
First things first – get your drawing material together. Wondering what it might be? An HB pencil, an eraser, and a blank piece of paper. Next look at some of his pictures – especially the more recent ones. Let the mood set in. Then attack that sheet of paper and destroy its blankness. How? Here’s the fruit metaphor to help you through.
The fruit metaphor:
Draw a long, vertically stretched rectangle curved a little like a banana. Put his eyes, his nose, and his lips in their right places. Note that it isn’t easy to see his nostrils so avoid drawing them. Check out a couple of side-face pictures of this handsome vampire – you’ll find that both his upper and lower jaws jut out a little more than they should. Also note the way he purses his lips – his lower lip extends a little more than his upper lip. Make sure that your shading takes care of these nuances. Next add the hair and OVER-DO it. It made his head look like the crown of a pineapple with some of the spikes twisted awry.
Finally, his posture. If you’ve watched the Twilight series, you must’ve noted that he walks with a slight slouch and his clothes look like they belong to another era.
That’s it for now…
next in line is the Caricature of a Cannibal…so brace up!
Not being a fan of vampire films, I really couldn’t pick Robert Pattinson out of a crowd. But this caricature of him reminds me of a long gone comedian from the vaudeville days….who also made talking films with his partner. He reminds me of Stan Laurel of Laurel and Hardy….who made so many people laugh in the days gone bye. Maybe it is the hairdo …..regardless of what it is, he reminds me of that late, great, silly half of a great comedy team. Great job, as usual, Shafali !
Thanks Nancy. I think in this caricature, Pattinson does resemble Laurel a bit. I’ve stretched his face to elongate it and that banana-curvature too makes him look a bit like Laurel. Coming up is Anthony Hopkins – I hope you’ll like it 🙂
mentioned HER yesterday because she wants to work with someone else as well
Poor guy doesn’t stand a chance against HIM! 😀
(Was watching Zindagi na milegi dobara and Giovanni said “Don’t you think he’d make it in Hollywood?” – yeah, if someone can tell them, including Brad Pitt, that Bollywood is not only Aishwarya Rai Bachchan… ;))
I think she’s keen on the producers…guess she’s aiming at hrithik’s dad 🙂 but if she’s just looking for a handsome married man, it could be hrithik.
