no art today

First, Last night, Sweet Enemy, AndreZero and ScienceGirl went to see the new Sherlock Holmes movie. Here's my Three Sentence Review:

  1. It was gritty and naturalistic and only a little steampunk with a single, small nod to future/anachronistic technology

  2. Most of the film was a Guy Ritchie Film, with the cool camerawork and asides that you'd come to expect, but some parts of it looked as though they were done by Standard Film Director #17

  3. I thought that Robert Downey Jr's portrayal of Holmes was more like A.C.D's character than was that of Jeremy Brett

I have been making art, but it's for the free commissions and I won't post an image of a commission until the commissioner receives it and gives me permission to post it. I've also been working on Death of a Friend and doing up some fanart for a little-visited Rahne Sinclair/Wolfsbane fan blog. Both the commissions and the fanart have forced me to push my abilities rather past my current talent. One of the commissions I had to do four versions in four styles before it turned out how I wanted it to be (read: not sucky). I'll post a link to the Rahne fanart when it's posted, post commissions if I get permission to do so and post the update to DoaF when it's done (we're getting near the end and, if you ask me, AndreZero has done a great story)

sounds like you're quite busy.

Wow sounds like you've been working hard. Been doing the same myself...45-50 hrs to make up for time lost. Can't wait to check out "Death of a Friend"!...I still want to see Sherlock Holmes. I just like Robert Downey Jr. He usually delivers in the acting part, even if the film sucks.

@arjan: I am, but except for some freelance design work it's all fun stuff I brought upon myself.

@LB: you've got a pretty good excuse for missing time, there! DoaF is in progress!

And you're right about RDjr. However, the film does not suck. I meant what I said about Jeremy Brett...
