Final Yoga Logo. Short work week. Phantom Manace video review. Saw the new Sherlock Holmes movie.
THE SIMPSONS NEWS
I was VERY grateful for our two day work week this week. I’ve been feeling burned out and the time off really helps. This week I started on a new crew. Time to start building up another show.
I got working on my sister‘s second logo this week. I told her I kinda liked what I had originally done with the logo in my first pass. She then told me she did also BUT she didn’t think the pose itself captured the Yoga pose quite right. She told me it lacked the right energy.
I gave it another shot. I even added a yellow “energy” wave to try to sell the energy. I pushed the pose as much as I dared and then after I was done I grabbed the drawing (I drew this on the computer) and I pushed it some more. This is what I sent my sister:
She told me she like it but she didn’t want the yellow so I took it out. I then went in and cleaned the drawing up just a little bit more and it was done:
I’ve made no secret that I’m not a big admirer of the newest Star Wars movies. They’ve kinda messed up Star Wars quite a bit. I do enjoy watching both versions of the Clone Wars Cartoons (the 2D ones AND the 3D). Especially because they are made by Star Wars geeks that KNOW what makes Star Wars cool. I happen to know that the Clone Wars guys actually argue with George Lucas over some of his lame ideas. They’re my heroes.
Anyway, one of the worst Star Wars movies ever made was The Phantom Menace. If you don’t believe that it’s a bad movie, watch the film below. If you DO think it’s a bad movie, watch the film below as well, it’s going to make you laugh. If you are interested in film making or storytelling and want to know what is needed to tell a good story, watch the film below as well. It will learn you something.
WARNING: The following movie contains bad language but is darn funny:
I went to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie starring Robert Downey Jr. as Holmes. I enjoyed it quite a bit. I’ve read a few Sherlock Holmes stories as well as watched a few Sherlock Holmes TV shows and movies. The familiarity with the character’s previous adventures, helped me feel like I knew the back story of a lot of what is spoken about by the characters in this new movie. This new version of the characters is very different and yet I still think it felt right. Still, it was definitely a very “American” Sherlock Holmes and Watson. They acted more like cowboys than British gentlemen but then again, it DOES take place during the TIME of the wild west, so it wasn’t too inappropriate. In any case, I enjoyed the movie, and I hope they make more.
