Duward!

Sooooo, it isn't exactly that I lied.
Yes, I wasn't sure if I was going to do another art update, but now, after seeing Angela's work, I pretty sure I need to show it. You can't blame me or be mad at me, I mean, you can, but, what'd you going to do....you know you want to see it too.

Angela to me:

"Here are the first of four very rough sketches to knock out the overall look, feel, color options, for the characters.  I started with Duward, since his description came first and he's a bit more complex than the others due to his anatomy.
 
 
 
The 1st pose is a rough anatomy base to get an idea of how Duward's posture is when on all fours. 
 
The 2nd is when he might be standing up straight (his legs are in extreme foreshortening, which is why his lower legs might seem ultra short).  
 
The 3rd's a basic facial sketch to define his look.  I've given him a bit of graying hair in the ends of his beard and in the chops area.  

I am thinking those trousers are more capri length that stop mid-calf with a split in the sides to allow him full mobility. 

Since his back will most likely be to the viewer, as we have in the cover's thumbnail, I think his short jacket would be an excellent place to have a sigil or symbol of some sort. Perhaps we can add the owl/moon emblem to his jacket's back?
 
****To learn what the Owl/Moon emblem represents, you'll have to read Genesis****


Duward was tons of fun for me.
I'm too used to drawing pretty womenfolk so he was a pleasant change of pace!"

I love her last lines the most. Glad she had so much fun.

My review of BvS: Dawn of Justice

First, let me say how hyped I was for this movie. I was nuts over it.
These characters are my childhood, shit, my adulthood, more so than any other heroes.
I was so excited that for the last month I was avoiding everything about it online and Tv; of course, you can't dodge it all, but I did my best.
I was even taking the time to workout beforehand all the things I didn't understand, like or agree with, based on the trailers I'd seen (before going Dark) and telling all my friends my ideas as a way to counteract all the negative talk already circling the drain—and this was before the actual first reviews came out.
I was supposed to see the movie with one of my best friends, a Die-In-the-Cape Superman aficionado, who like me, also enjoyed Man of Steel. But I'm glad I didn't see it with him, because he was loosing faith early on, despite all my theories and how I fervently denounced hater trash-talking—mostly cause many weren't fans of the genre or didn&…

Finally, my review of Star Wars: The Force Awakens

This is going to be a stream of thought, rather than a planned out, book-report style review. I hope to cover several points, but, if I miss or neglect some, I'm sure you won't care—you've already read far too many reviews of this movie anyway. So, does it really matter that yet another unknown is throwing his Two Cents into the wind for whoever to read? I didn't think so. And, to further the point, the next time something like Star Wars gets placed in my lap, maybe then I'll have real room to critique. This is just for fun and because I'm a geek. For me, blogging about this stuff is the next best thing to sitting around with friends and going over and over all the little details for hours on end. I mean, I'd like to stay married. :)

Ok, first things first: I enjoyed this movie. To me, it was a solid B (reasons to follow) I enjoyed the return to Old Movie Magic. I enjoyed the equal mix of CGI and FX and Costumes and Settings and all that jazz. It was good.…

My review of Justice League

So, if you read my review of BvS: Dawn of Justice, and you follow me on FB and Twitter, you're likely surprised I even saw this movie. Me too. But, it just so happens an opportunity fell into my lap and so I decided to check it out.

No, this isn't at all the JL I'd hoped for, but it's what we got.

First, as I did with BvS I'll jump right in and say IT ISN'T TERRIBLE!!!!!!! (unlike BvS)
Ok, Now, let's rate it:
Overall, it's between a 6ish and 7, depending on what you think are the pros and cons, which we'll get to. (Again, I rated BvS a 3.5 to 5, so much improvement)



The plot is kinda straight forward and so I won't really much comment, though, the gathering of the team was weak. To be fair, really, the first half of the movie was bad to not very good—it was really  simple, worse than childlike in it's reasoning: "Hey guys, lets make a team to save the world" and so, we'll cover each teammate in turn because that took up a…
