doing stuff. things

Charcoal study, bit rusty but I wanna get back into it! (You can see more WIPs at my Instagram!) And a mini progress video here.

my six year old cousin was playing last night and telling me about how he was the king and asked if i wanted to be a knight. i told him sure and then he said “a girl knight. hey remember when i was little and thought you were a boy?” and i said “what if i dont want to be either, can i be something in between?” and he sat quietly for a moment and said “yeah! you can be both a boy AND a girl!” it wasn’t perfect and he doesn’t totally get it but he’s always been so good about these things and i’m grateful. 


Day 4 of 31

I bought some skinny Levi’s from the men’s section at a thrift store the other day for ten bucks and I am absolutely enthralled by the amount of POCKETS I have at my disposal now

Batman v Superman looks too dark I don't really like that

okay i’m like 5 seconds away from snapping completely about this so lets talk

  • there’s three possible reasons for why the trailer looked so dark; 1) snyder’s in love with filters as we’ve seen in his character posters and the film will actually be plenty light, just like man of steel. 2) he’s specifically chosen shots or even specifically filmed shots that wont make it into the movie for the trailers ~aesthetic~ 3) the film is going to look very visually like watchmen which makes me so fucking excited i could pee
  • i’ve seen people comparing this trailer to the frigging star wars one and its like?????????? what the actual fuck these are two films that have absolutely nothing to do with each other you cannot draw any comparisons y’all are really fucking reaching to try and make DC look bad
  • THIS FILM IS ABOUT BATMAN. OF COURSE IT’S GOING TO BE DARK. no one wants a movie where batman and superman tickle fight each other and then dance around a maypole throwing flowers (that only works in fanfiction, sorry). if this movie wasn’t dark it would be as equally slagged off like jesus christ are DC allowed any leeway at all like NO OFFENSE BUT marvel put out a trailer where the villain sounds like fucking pinocchio and ur fanboys dicks leak everywhere yet here we have a badass trailer where superman is literally being compared to GOD HIMSELF WHILE BATMAN LOOKS ON IN A FUCKING ROBOTIC SUIT AND Y’ALL ARE COMPLAINING
  • dark is DC’s thing. if thats not for you, fine. that doesnt mean the quality is any less than marvels - they are two fucking separate companies and DC is taking advantage of the fact that its not tied down to a company aimed at kids like Disney and is therefore going for a more adult tone. stop spreading hate about a fucking trailer thats been out for no less than like 5 minutes.

Behind the Scenes of Daleks In Manhattan / Evolution of the Daleks (Part One of Two)

Excerpts from James Strong’s “Director’s Diary” of the filming for DWM issue #383

- Tue 14 November -
It’s trying to rain.  Ignore it, you fools!  Tonight, the Doctor defies the Daleks, and we defy the showers.  Take after take, David delivers a spellbinding mix of anger, fear, and determination.  Afterwards, he sounds a little hoarse.  I hope he hasn’t overdone things.  Finally, we kill Solomon, who has to fall into the mud and ruin his costume, so we make doubly-sure that we’ve shot everything with actor Hugh Quarshie before he drops, which he does with consummate elegance - a fine and noble death.

- Thur 16 November -
[…] And then Phil calls with some really bad news:  David has lost his voice. His exertions over the past few weeks have taken their toll.  Guiltily, I think back to that extra take of him defying the Daleks.  We have to reschedule the day, and hope that his voice recovers in time for the Doctor’s confrontation with the remaining Daleks tomorrow.

- Fri 17 November -
The Doctor faces the remaining Daleks and the imprisoned Sec in the theatre.  We have to use the whole space, so I decide to put the Doctor and the company in the stalls.  However, that puts them miles away from - and at least six feet lower than - the Daleks on stage.  I ask David how he feels about crawling to the front and leaping on stage, but he suggests standing on the seats instead.  Genius!  David is now eye to eyestalk with his nemesis.

- Thur 23 November -
Torrential rain!  And on Doctor Who’s birthday too!  It’s the last night of the shoot, and finally our luck with the weather has run dry - or more precisely, wet. [… bits about miraculous short breaks in the weather, allowing them to film the scenes on the girders …]  We’re underway.  It’s freezing, though, and the poor cast are suffering as the rain comes and goes.  But we get it, we’ve done it, it’s a wrap.  I shake hands with my crew, I hug David - thank you for everything.  It’s going to be a cracker.
