Because it has the sexiest female anime character I've ever seen and I know there are some hot ones in Naturo and Bleach, but Haruka Gracia is SO hot that she makes Jessica Rabbit look like Transvestite.
Wait, some gorgeous drunk woman in London club accidentally fell in your lap & left a bruise on your knee? I dunno, sounds sketchy to me! ;)
Speaking of sketches, @work around 4am I whipped out a t-shirt design for 2011 Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas in September.
Basically, taking Roman iconography for music, updating it a bit. Threw in some Botticelli hair and a crown made of Texas State capital building, old video cameras (this is a film festival), a rattlesnake.
Stage 2 is blowing it up to roughly 18X24, tracing it on Birch wood, and whipping out the egg tempura. I still have a lot of detail. She'll be covered in tattoos of Texas Iconography. Backdrop of downtown Austin. Melting Eye balls from the trees.
So glad you enjoyed Sanjuro. It's my personal fav. While Valentine's Day is a bit of a holiday trap, I hope you have a wonderful day with someone you love. :)
im more of a writer and photography kinda art i took an artistic picture of the woman who looks like a robot in my pics that one is my design but i feel as if my kinda art is just fun not story driven your kinda art can help me tell my stories better if you would like to.
No worries. Busy isn't always a bad thing especially when you are trying to make an ascent...because no one you meet for the first time ever really asks how you got from point A to point B but rather...what you are or present.
Haha...yea, stretching the truth of beauty is pretty much one of the main themes in art isn't it? Take for instance, director/painter Julian Schnabel who cast Gary Oldman as himself in his film, Basquiat. I think there are 200lbs between the two men. A good film if you ever get a chance.
I am loving your continuation in all things Japanese. my two favorite Kurosawa films, Sanjuro & Roshomon. Hard to go wrong with the man. Let me know what you think about any of his films as you finish watching them.
Sadly, the last truly Japanese works of literature I had read was "the Woman of the Dunes" which was a truly Surreal and psychological story. Think of the Prisoner but the Japanese version. I think I read it in high school during Honors literature (I know, NERD!)
I ordered the first 2 volumes of Vagabond! I'll let you know what I think after I have digested them. :)
Have a great lead into your weekend. And don't do anything I wouldn't do Patricia! ;)
