I’ve been pretty slack in my cinema outings in the last couple of years but I’ve started making a trip to the cinema in the morning a new weekly/fortnightly ritual. So far I’ve been lucky, as I really liked Glass and of course Alita I loved.
I’m a fan of the source material in that I’ve read them and enjoyed them and even still own a couple of editions. The story always struck me as a great cyberpunk story but going into the film I didn’t have any expectations.
The film would be what it would be and I’d kill a couple of hours in air conditioning.
The world that unfolding though was a feast for the eyes with a fully realised cyberpunk city meticulously crafted. The action sequences were all really well done and exciting and there’s a genuine story throughout.
A great pleasure to watch and I look forward to getting a “The Art Of” book when it’s released.
Remember I did a Calypso commission piece? Well I did and it was a fun little experiment piece but at the time I mentioned that I preferred not to be as experimental when handling commission requests. I assured the owner that I would follow up with an additional more traditional approach to it and here it is.
I actually think the hologram effect isn’t too bad actually so I’m happy I tried it both ways.
In the past I’ve resisted drawing “real people” simply because the idea of breaking a person down to basic shapes to portray them especially in this style can be a daunting task because whilst it’s one thing to draw a larger than life character it’s another thing to draw someone directly.
But enough people who have ordered up commissions have requested themselves in the drawings that I’m very quickly moving past that reservation and embracing it.
Here we have a set of TOS inspired sketch cards, the family who requested them sent me the best clearest photos for reference.
A real pleasure to work with!
On that note a special thank you to everyone who has ordered commission pieces and have been waiting patiently for my life to settle down enough so I could really start working my way through them. You are all appreciated so much!
I think it’s a shame that we didn’t get to follow Nog’s story as he headed off to the Academy (except of course in comic book form which is better than nothing). I do think that his story arc was extremely good though, who would have thought that the ferengi kid stealing stuff in the ruins of Terok Nor would go on to distinguish himself in Starfleet?
I’m embarking on a rewatch of the original series of The Twilight Zone and because I’m savouring each episode I thought I might take up doing Twilight Zone scribbles.
I am a huge fan of the first episode of The Twilight Zone, it’s such a simple concept and it’s played out so wonderfully. Living on my own for the first time in 19 years and working from home has me a little isolated so I completely sympathise with Mike.
Apparently the upper limit is 484 hours 36 minutes so I’ll let you all know how I go LOL.
I used to watch The 100 so I knew who “Clexa” was and it was fun to dip into their universe and do something a little different with the sketch cards. I’ve made it so you can actually display the cards either way and the backgrounds will still line up!
I mentioned over on Patreon that the Kirk bomber jacket is not my favourite look of his. I do enjoy drawing it though.
Of course I just realised that I wasn’t the biggest fan of the green wrap around tunic either but I’ve come to love that so maybe the bomber jacket will one day be amongst my favourites?? (I’m doubting it)
