i am currently halfway through episode 3 and i can’t pronounce myself fully since i haven’t finished the show. i was also one of those folks who was extremely meh when the first trailers cropped up (mainly because a) white man saves asian culture, b) the main dude also plays loras on got deplorably - not his fault, just d&d’s magical power of turning everything they touch into shit). so i was kinda ready to hate-watch one episode for jessica henwick.
but honestly? it’s pretty damn riveting so far. it may be that i am secretly boring and will watch anything, but i find the story so far engrossing enough to keep me going. and the characters are decent too. now yeah, the pacing is a problem, the choreography too, but i kind of like that it looks clumsy? while i enjoy daredevil fine, the brutality and efficiency of some of those fight scenes both overwhelm and underwhelm me. obviously, iron fist still doesn’t come close to the other defenders, but i am not hating it so far. colleen wing is also <333
(and well, danny rand is definitely a cheese-ball of a character but so far, i haven’t felt that he’s simply posturing an asian identity. rather it feels he’s falling back on what he has been taught for the past 15 years. like, that is the only reality he is familiar with. he’s a weirdly innocent character that so far doesn’t bug me. but again, i’m only on episode 3.)
so i guess i can’t say if it’s good or bad as of now. but i was expecting waaay worse from all these reviews.
I’m starting to really dig where Huntress’ design is going. Some of my favorite sketches so far. Gonna start doing final designs soon on Photoshop. I like the idea of her having her suits pant leg styled after old German officer pants..
sorry I cant do scenery. I also took some creative liberties with design but heres part of one of my fav. moments from Mark’s Subnautical videos so far. (Can you tell I’m really digging them)
Also drawing hair underwater f-ing sucks. and while we are on the subject of hair, i do have to add that I am really digging the color thing Marks got going on. I was a little iffy about the pink at first, but man to I love it now. Not that it matters, home boy can do whatever he likes, just wanted to let ya’ll know.
I'm dead serious about being convinced dan and Phil are working on a secret project. Idk what it is but something deep down tells me they totally lied to us about this year not being busy career wise. Specially that whole "talk to me about this week in august" bit. It's worth mentioning I've been scarily good at predicting things too so I'm a bit shook as to why I've been feeling this way.. I feel like it's career wise, I don't think it's moving which makes me sad. But it's gonna be big.
mm but even considering the possibility that they could be working on something career wise (cuz they’re both vague bitches and they’re men and we all know what men do), i do feel that there will be a serious change in their personal lives. something that will be widely known to all of us. i’m too tired to dig into my blog and sum up everything that has happened so far this year but… so much has happened and some of the things they’ve done recently seem so out of character but at the same time it’s completely expected? it’s weird because a lot of the things i’ve noticed that could potentially point towards something big are being mentioned so briefly and so offhandedly that it takes a moment to register
Um, so, I know Claire’s hand goes to Jamie’s ass, and it’s most likely been what they’ve rehearsed. But I never noticed how Cait’s Claire’s hand literally grips his ass even more. Like, really digs her nails in, bringing that boy home. Far more so than The Wedding. I guess the first time, (on camera) really is the best.
