Journal History



I recently posted a piece featuring Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch to my gallery in early anticipation of the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron. Today, the first trailer was released on IMDB and I pounced on it with enthusiasm. 

Unfortunatley, my first glimpse of this highly anticipated blockbuster wasn't all I hoped it would be. While the trailer showcased many of the action scenes expected of such a feature- and they looked fabulous!- it was pretty short on substance. The action scenes essentially piled onto one another until it became hard to digest them all, and very little was revealed in the way of plot details. 

Of course, the structuring of a trailer doesn't necessarily give an accurate picture of what a movie will be like (I've seen it before), so I'm not making any kind of judgement at the moment. CAN'T WAIT FOR MAY!!!

Fashion of Dorne by loverofbeauty
Fashion of Dorne
Created using Game of Thrones Scene Maker on Azalea's Dress-up Dolls

This series was directly inspired by Metalblackfae's piece "Westeros fashion style". As soon as I saw the piece, I could easily pick out influences that were graphically displayed in the clothing (styles, colors and shapes) as well as the people wearing them (facial expressions and physical features). Using those same influences and themes, I came up with these doll designs for the regions of Westeros controlled by each Great House.

For Dorne, the logical mindset was "this is a desert climate and everyone needs to keep cool". I kept the woman's dress as close to the original piece as the program allowed, since the original was beautifully rendered. Perhaps the man's leather bracers- used to project the warrior image- were an unconscious nod to the "Red Viper" Oberyn Martell. When it came to facial expressions, shrewd was the key word; I don't believe the Dornish consider themselves completely superior to the rest of Westeros, but they're definitely not impressed with posturing or intimidated by lofty shows of power, and I tried to make that mindset show through. As for the clothing pattern, nothing seems to click, so I played it safe and went for the minimalist look.

Musings Made Flesh

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 14, 2014, 8:03 PM
A friend of mine has commented several times that writers for television shows are not paid nearly enough for the quality of work they produce. No doubt this is true, but tonight I saw for the first time just HOW true this belief can be.

In the latest edition to my gallery, I used a photograph of an empty pair of shoes to reflect my feelings on the introduction of NSA analyst Ellie Bishop to the NCIS team. While the symbolism of the image may be obvious (for full details, see my gallery), it seems the NCIS writers have fully latched onto my thinking. In tonight's premiere episode, Bishop commented to Dr. Rachel Cranston (Kate Todd's sister, for those who don't remember) that the shoes she has to fill are gigantic, and in some ways may be unfillable.

This is exactly what I was thinking when Bishop was introduced to the show, and, as I mentioned in my deviation, I hoped that Bishop understood that notion. Well, it seems that she does.
