Throwback- Characters from The Last Dragon

Yo, if you’re a fan of 80s films check out this trio of characters from the classic 80s cult film The Last Dragon.
Trailer link
The film was released in 1985 and featured Taimak, Vanity (rip), Julus Carry (rip), Mike Starr, and a young Ernie Reyes Jr!The director Michael Schultz also made Colley High, Car Wash, and Crush Groove! And the brother is still working today.  Sadly we lost both Vanity and Julius who played Sho Nuff, but even three decades after its release folks like me still love this film produced by Barry Gordy and written by Louis Venosta.
Back in 2016 I painted Sho Nuff from the film:
And this year I decided to paint both Laura Charles (played by Vanity)
and Bruce Leroy from the film.
Check out this time lapse video of me painting Bruce Leroy using ink and watercolor.

Character 164 – Bruce Leroy (Last Dragon)


Ok switching it up again with a time lapse video of this one. This right here is Bruce Leroy, or my version of the actor Taimak from the great 80s film “The Last Dragon”. As I stated in the previous post w/ Ms Laura Charles I loved the film as a kid and still love it today even w/ its campy or corny parts. 

If you dig this, check out this one of Laura Charles aka Vanity (RIP). 

Did you see my last collage of characters? Here it is.

Character 107-Sho-Nuff (Last Dragon)

Am I the prettiest?! Sho-Nuff! Do you remember this character? The actor that played him was Julius Carry the third. He died in 2008 unfortunately, but not before a long and extensive career acting in film and tv. The film is one of my all time favorites. The fact that I got to see a black protagonist who was into martial arts as a kid was pretty awesome. So were all the characters. But i especially loved Sho-Nuff!!
