Nice Monster there!  I have to say, minus a lot of the details from the photo he has a little bit of a Peter Cushing look about him that I think is really cool.

^ Thanks musiced :)

About peter cushing, so what I drew looks more like peter and less like boris? Just wondering and to like guage what is working and what isn't ect. I still struggle with capturing likeness' I think, but I'm keeping at it. I certainly wouldn't mind drawing Frankenstein again. Wouldn't mind drawing Peter Cushing either.

Both Ming and Tarkin look REALLY good!  The Ming piece could be straight on an old timey poster.

That's beautiful!  You really got her lips perfectly.  The eyes are spot on.

^ Thanks!

Women seem a lot more challenging to draw, one slightly misplaced line and the whole thing looks off, like maybe this looks more like Nicole Kidman than Michelle Pfeiffer?

I noticed after scanning that parts of her lip line are invisible in the scan (scans from this sketchbook tend to be a bit bright), I have fixed this but don't feel like scanning it again, maybe later if someone wants me to I will.
I tilted the angle a bit, just seemed like the right thing to do.

I guess cause one of my favorite pencils was getting really stubby (when I drew the frankenstein monster) I had to change how I was drawing/holding the pencil and without noticing till the catwoman drawing I've been drawing from the wrist instead of holding the pencil like how one does whilst printing which is what I've always done (I seem to recall reading that you are supposed to draw with the wrist but, you know, in one ear and out the other), makes drawing faces much easier/enjoyable.

I stumbled across this fab site...

https://oldhollywoodincolor.com/

A guy uploading old movie lobbycards, colourising Hollywood photos, vintage film posters, memorabilia etc. I thought it'd be the kind of thing that'd interest you.

Yes I am making them out of pine, I don't need a lecture, make 'em like you want IMO. Am using weather stripping around the back so the back cover will fit real nice. I'll make the bass sub box out of mdf however, I'm not completely stupid, but I'll try and wrap the mdf in pine so it matches the rest, or something...

Well I finished ^ that one, there is another one I can make to go with it (will have a pic soon, the first one looks sweet) but when I plugged it in it sounded kinda junk, no slouch with bass but mids sounded like shit and many S sounds are inaudible, I figured it was cause I didn't know what I was doing making the box, so I rebuilt two other speakers from spare boxes/drivers I had (this was supposd to be a b-day present for someone, now it will be a late present) and plugged those in, same shit as before, so I'm thinking the reciever/amp I was testing them with is no good anymore and maybe there isn't anything wrong with what I made, will have to do more tests using my main reciever and see if that makes a difference.

^ Yeah I fucked that up real good. 'Do not' I guess. Yoda in a dubbed Kung Fu voice with a superior inflection laughed at my attempt. It's not a bad drawing but it's not Cheesus Skywalker and I'm not gonna post it. But I think I'm gonna give it a go later, or just draw the second photo ^ instead.

Gardening has been taking up most of my time, I made a few flower boxes, one is real badass like a treasure chest with artwork painted around it and other fancy sh!t, but when I can I am working on a fan art thinger, something like this:

Won't say more till finished lest I jinx myself again.


I think I've used up Do or Do Not, maybe, need a new motivational quote mantra, or maybe I shouldn't give up on it so easily

^ Is Rudy the title of the film?
Not sure if I've seen Bagger Vance, that the golfing movie with Will Smith?

I need to get myself some clear gesso to go over the wood I cut out/stained for the 'stele' before I can put the artwork and custom heiroglyphs/writing down, I made a figure for it too out of air dry clay and a simple tin skeleton to hold it together and painted it, looks like it was carved from lava rock by some royal satanic ancient dude, the figure just needs some kind of clear coat to protect it and give it a little shine.
