I hope you all have enjoyed The Mandalorian as much as I have; it has given me hope for the Star Wars franchise on the big screen. Although I’m not part of the fan-base that have felt rage at the new movies, I was rather disappointed at the failure to develop the characters & plot in the manner that The Force Awakens seemed to have initially been heading towards. I can be satisfied with The Mandalorian however, and continue to enjoy the animated series, games, and books that Star Wars creators do well.
Having had the benefit of growing up with 2 older brothers, I was never short of action and sci-fi/fantasy media growing up. The Star Wars trilogy was watched to death on VHS, and my generation of course enjoyed (and criticize today 😅 ) the prequels when they came out around 2000s. Other than the unforgettable introduction of Darth Maul in the prequels, Ewan Mcgregor’s Obi-Wan really got me interested in the character and continues to be my favourite to this day. (Well ok…Obi-wan and a certain red-eyed, blue-skinned, art connoisseur 😆) Therefore, seeing director Deborah Chow behind 2 of my favourite episodes in The Mandalorian has gotten me very excited for the upcoming Obi-wan series which she’ll be behind. A really good sci-fi/fantasy show also means a longer wait for Season 2, which I shall now impatiently be waiting for.
Getting back to working with graphite again. I think I had gotten a little annoyed in the past because of smudging issues. Working with blending stumps has really bought back my love for it again; and its just refreshing.
We’ve been getting some gloomy days in Toronto the last couple days, definitely not the best for photography… 😦 However, I’m glad to had this one up at last. ~ Sebastian Verlac from Cassandra Clare’s Mortal Instruments series, painted in watercolours.
You often don’t get enough time to catch up on your favourite TV shows, especially when working in the art industry and often its never-ending work hours. So, I end up binge-watching a lot of shows. Recently I got around to catching up with latest season of Supernatural. There are many actors/actresses I watch the show for (humour alone being a reason) but Mark Pellegrino’s Lucifer is definitely a big reason. As of the latest episode (S12e15) however, I think I might regret hoping that he gets to keep his ‘vessel’ permanently…
