Cast Away by Queen-Asante Cast Away by Queen-Asante
I'm not sure why people dislike Jonny so much and find him annoying, I think he's darling, albeit tragic.

So anyways, I was watching Cast Away last night, and for some reason (I hope I'm not the only one who noticed this) Plank reminds me of the volleyball Wilson. I always cry like a fool when Chuck Noland loses his best buddy. It’s amazing how so attached a man can become to inanimate object when he’s completely isolated. Human beings need companionship, no matter how quiet or reserved they are. I am oftentimes a loner like Jonny. In fact, I’m most content when I’m spending time in the company of myself. But that’s not to say I don’t cherish friends and the company of other living human beings. We homo sapiens need love, affection and friendship. So although Jonny is deserted on the lonely island of his own mind, he perhaps created Plank to fill the gap of lacking real friends. Imaginary friends are great. I had a ton as a child. But there comes a point in time where we need to draw the line and look to fulfilling real-life relationships. I honestly think though Jonny is pleased as punch the way he is. Plank quells Jonny’s insatiable need for friends, so I can’t imagine how Jonny would be if he ever lost his best friend. Chuck Nolan was able to move on and assimilate back into society after being rescued from his island, however, at the end of the film, we do see that he wasn’t completely able to let go of Wilson, because he has a brand-new Volleyball in his car, waiting to return with a painted smile and an ear to listen.

The Predatory Nature of Human Existence is a predominant theme in both Cast Away and Jonny 2x4. It teaches a grim lesson about the nature of human existence. Jonny and Chuck both have a profound sense of loneliness and isolation. Chuck is literally deserted on an island, whereas Jonny is deserted psychologically. They both desire the comfort of a friend, but will settle for the attentive ear of a board of wood and a volleyball. That's kinda tragic. But it just goes to show that humans need a friend.

Anyways, I really like Jonny’s story with Plank, so I’m probably going to do more Jonny-centered art soon. I don’t think I’ve drawn this kid enough, and he needs more attention in this fandom. Personally, I think he’s one of the most fascinating secondary characters.

Ah yes cast away, I watched it too many times :XD: But anyways, this artwork shows the tragedy of someone's possession or good friend lost. This portrays it beautifully, of the loss of something close and cared for. Awesome job :la:

I'm glad other's shared my idea. :)

Really? It's not my best piece, I didn't have much time to do it, but I'm glad you like it. I always did love Tom Hanks myself. He's probably one of my favourite American actors.

Creative concept.

A few suggestions: give the face and some of the more detailed body parts (ie toes, knees) a more specular, uniform surface. The recessed grooves on his feet (where the lights and circuitry show) could use a bit more exaggeration in terms of 'depth' to give a better sense that the 'skin' is more just a shell.
