I’m really enjoying these quick study sketches, they kind of have to be quick because of the Star Trek 365 being all encompassing. The xenomorph alien has always been a favourite of mine despite the many MANY attempts to completely dilute the franchise LOL. That first Alien film is still one of the most terrifying […]
Whilst I won’t be doing a “Laura Dern 365” in 2019 as was suggested to me via Twitter the other day I was intreagued enough to draw our favourite paleobotanist Dr Ellie Sattler from Jurassic Park. I really enjoy doing these ones as they’re a lot more free form and the colours blend nicely.
I feel I missed an opportunity to have him holding a coffee cup, Thor drinking coffee and smashing the cup is pretty much the most charming thing to come out of those first two Thor films. They were very lucky with Hemsworth, I’m not sure anyone else could have played him so well. I did […]
Even though I have no real interest in the upcoming Infinity War film I am vaguely interested in revising the Marvel universe following this: I’ve got all the early films on blu-ray (for now) and I think all the rest except obviously Black Panther are all on Netflix so it shouldn’t be too much of […]
I’m happy enough to admit that whilst I generally did not enjoy the majority of the original Stallone Judge Dredd story I really loved the visuals and some of the epic landscapes in the film. Everything else was rubbish and after reading about what went wrong you can completely see it up on the screen. […]
I was a latecomer to Firefly but I was lucky to come to it with almost perfect timing. I heard vague rumours about the show but for ages I didn’t bother checking it out, I’m not even sure if it actually aired on Australian free to air television, if it did it would have been […]
I know you’re judging me. But I can explain why this is in my blu-ray collection. It’s part of the Indiana Jones set which was cheaper to buy than just the trilogy and I don’t think I’ve even played the disc. It was on television when we were travelling and I put it on in […]
Raiders of the Lost Ark is, in my opinion, one of the finest pieces of adventure filmmaking ever produced, if not film in general. It is beautifully shot, the story is great and the acting is spot on. Raiders is iconic and most importantly it is a lot of fun without being stupid. Picking a scene […]
This is actually the most recent addition to the blu-ray collection so I suspect I’ll hold on to it for a little while longer. I actually thought I had a copy and went to watch it and discovered that it went in the DVD giveaways. I have a soft spot for Talladega Nights, there are […]
To be honest, I don’t think you get any geek points for being able to recite Montoya’s speech from The Princess Bride, I’m not sure I know anyone who couldn’t 😉 This is the second of the “lost sketches” from the Sketchbook Scenes series.
