Astonishing Wolverine and The Deadpool 2 Review

AstonishingWolverineBWByJTjr2018

I finally saw Deadpool 2 this weekend.  I liked it as much, if not more, as I did the first movie.  The action felt top notch, and I think that has something to do with David Leitch (known for directing John Wick) being in the director’s helm.  The humor was about as funny as the first, with additional references to pop culture as well as the cinematic universes of both DC and Marvel.  However, while very few jokes had less of a chuckle, it didn’t ruined my experience. Outside of the main characters, I felt Domino (played by Zazie Beetz) had the best scenes, showcasing her power of luck in action.  Think Final Destination, but with the odds playing in her favor.  Nonetheless, as surprising as how those scenes played out, what was more surprising were the additional characters and cameos that appeared throughout the movie.  Some of them had me say to myself, “Wow, they brought this person/these people back.” While another one had me go, “Is that (well known actor) playing that character?”  Overall, the movie was enjoyable, if not better, than the previous one.  It left me wanting to watch it again, just to catch other details and cameos I missed on my first viewing.

With that said, closing this week’s theme of X-Men characters, I figured I end it with a black and white drawing of Wolverine, in his “Astonishing” outfit.

Next Week: With Solo: A Star Wars Story coming out, I will be drawing characters from the Star Wars series.

Deadpool and a Guitar

I was going to do minimal coloring due to my busy schedule today, yet it still took longer than the others did this week.  Inks was running low, and I had to stroke over my lines multiple times. Other details, such as the guitar, also played a huge factor in why it took so long.

  • Penciling: 1 hour, 42 minutes
  • Inking: 2 hours, 14 minutes
  • Coloring & Editing: 20 minutes
  • Total: 4 hours, 16 minutes

Simply Ness

Hope everyone had a good Mother’s Day today with their moms.  Before I move onto my next theme, here’s a picture of Ness from one of my favorite role playing games back in the day, Earthbound (aka MOTHER 2 in Japan). While the story centers around a boy going on an adventure to collect the 8 melodies and save the future from an evil alien, there have been a few people (including video game streamers) who have given this a play through on Mother’s Day.

  • Penciling: 14 minutes
  • Inking: 13 minutes
  • Coloring: 29 minutes
  • Total: 56 minutes

As a side note, if there are any drawings I didn’t do for a previous theme(i.e. Doctor Strange for Marvel Week), I will return to them later in the year. For instance, on a week where nothing’s going on, I can do “Video Games Week, Round 2.” Another instance is when Avengers: Infinity War comes out on video, I can do “Marvel Week, Round 2,” as well. Anything I didn’t draw before can and will be done at a later date.

The Great Dictator

“Window” – Album Leaf

These past couple days this week, I’ve been showing you films I grew up with.  Most of them being from the 1980s (with the exception of Young Frankenstein, released in 1974). To close this week’s theme of film classics, I’m going to go further back to the year 1940, with The Great Dictator. I discovered this back in 2012, when I was browsing through Youtube videos on 3D animation. One video I came across was titled, “Dictator,” by username Shwiggan. Made in Source Film Maker, it’s an assortment of video clips using models from Team Fortress 2. What made this video great, to me, was the audio portion, with dialogue from the late Charlie Chaplin and music by Album Leaf. This audio juxtaposition created an powerful and emotional response. I had to search for the film it came from afterwards.  When I finally saw it, I was impressed by how a film that’s over 75 years old could grab my attention, with its mixture of satire, comedy, and even drama. Not only was Charlie Chaplin’s speech moving at the end, it still rings relevant even to this day.

Next Week (After Mother’s Day): With Deadpool 2 coming shortly, I will be doing X-men art.
