Its not Easy Being Aquamarine – Robots Root 25 January 2018

Welp, not one day later, here we are with the first photos. Outrage! Delight! The interweb is confused, but angry! But not! So, here’s my two thoughts on it. No, three thoughts.

  1. The colors evoke classic Kree military green and white
  2. The Avengers Infinity War and 4th Film are, I believe, going to give us either alternate reality, or timey-wimey monkeying around, so this could be one VERSION of her. In fact, she could even be used as the narrative gateway to the changes. Ie. look, she’s checking out a newspaper. Classic time travel/ mirror universe situational awareness stuff.
  3. Check out how Marvel’s approach to the powerful woman, once again, is a fully costumed and even armored, character, despite the actress being easily sexualized if they chose to. Black Widow, Wasp, and now Captain Marvel.

Moving on, here’s some Robot’s Root!

  • Salvador Larroca has illustrated some of my favorite runs. I’m saddened to see what’s happening on Star Wars. In his defense, I’m wondering if editorial is smooshing some photmanip onto those faces in post? It’s possible (sniff) that he’s the one doing it, as he’s definitely relied on photo ref a lot on his portrait work, along with many other artists. But this is beyond the space pale.
  • I’m currently investigating if I can download the Phillip P Dick anthology offline for my upcoming international travels. Here’s a ranking of all the episodes…
  • That John Wick series on Starz is set to focus on the Continental… Keannu appearances not confirmed. I’m cool with it. I love love LOVE assassins guilds. We have one in the TRDL Universe in fact.
  • I find the backstory about Phasma, from her armor being made from Palpatine’s Yacht plating, to her involvement in Hux’s assassination of his own father, immensely interesting. GRUMBLE.
  • Check out this collection of photo ref studies for Moebius!
  • Tintype Star Wars photos yay!

 

Finally, remember, if you’re going to the big house, at least do it with style. BACON BATTERY STYLE!

 

No Re-Checkoving and other things 20 July 2016

Image
ITEM: In welcome news for this guy, anyway, they say they won’t recast Checkov. No idea about how they will address his absence, which is fine, as the film isn’t written and the current film isn’t even out, but anyway.

In other news…

Image
ITEM: This may sound weird on the face of it, but Jason Bourne has 25 lines in the new film. However, I want punchy punchy, not monologues, and anyway, Supes had 40-something in BVS…

Image
ITEM: Iron Doom’s whole armor is weak, save for being matte finish… but on the other hand, his hood and the fact that the mask is chrome are SICK.

Two great pieces of art from the Mike Mignola fan group on FB… the former, just rad for being a flower in a dome with mystery pipes, and the latter a master class of color theory.

My version of ROBOT GANGSTER and their version differ somewhat.
