Watched Gravity on Tuesday. While it wasn’t mind blowing-ly amazing, it’s one of the most enjoyable ones I have seen recently. Rated by wittertainment as more of a ‘B’ movie, I have to agree when I think back on it. A fine example would be the first scene that I drew up there. I didn’t like the shot at all as soon as I saw it. Why did I draw it? Well, it sorta of got stuck in my mind on how annoyingly obvious it was and I am really trying to figure out why it struck me so hard. How else could they have done it so it be not as obvious?
(PS: there was no actual reference for these, purely from what I can recall the shot to sort of be like. Not quite accurate to that either)
Anyways, regardless of the cliche dialogue and shots. I didn’t love it for the beauty of it, (did get quite tired of the similar space shots and the repetition of ‘bang’ ‘saved’ ‘bang’ ‘saved’ ‘bang’…) I loved the theme. It’s quite simple, but I connected with it and that’s all it matters. Maybe it’s that mother in every woman. When she started talking about _____ near the end, it ALMOST brought moist to my eyes, but I think I smiled. =）
So, there is my thought on that film. I got tons more on my to watch list. This is just sort of for my own record keeping. Perhaps also with hopes that someone out there may have felt the same as me and wants to share some of their thoughts with me?
Can’t end the day without a doodle. So, does someone want to explain to me why my knees are the only other part that gets wet other than the usual foot area of course?and how??

Day and night of a room I was staying at~
Got stuck in the rain at a friends place downtown. Felt bad for not uploading something today…. But took my chance to muck around with some pencil crayons.
try to portray yourself as one who's up on her toes more and confident not only of your work but yourself too. I know it's tough as an artist doing what you love to do, and the competition in this industry is a challenge that can take your integrity apart. but you need to stay strong. In my opinion, showing people on your blog you're unemployed and bummed out, is patronizing, and everyone can symphatize, but an employer my see it as a weakness too. show you're always busy and happy all the time.
Thank you for worrying about me and I do agree with your points to some degree. I just want to clarify that I do have a job, and having a break between contracts is something that happens often in our industry. What I tried to portray was my mere longing for my friends and some sort of modern day social problem. ( I don’t know how to phrase this. ) But I had fun drawing the comic and was occupied as soon as I started it ( didn’t even reply to some of my friends during that time :P ) I hope I do not come of as unhappy and bummed out to more of you out there. If you know me, I am one of the most open minded and optimistic person you will meet :P
Ps: I also think I want to portray the honest me. Yes I know we are all trying to build an image and online presence as some sort of portfolio. But it is still my space to express my own emotions.
Just a rough one inspired by a lifedrawing session I attended did a while back, and all the old masters with their ballerinas.

and that’s why y’all should always reply me.
(just kidding. you can leave me alone if you want. I like lonliness)
(wait no, really. friends I’m alright haha. And I do have a job tee hee)
