It's been a while since I've updated this, but I guess it was time ( not like anyone was getting impatient or anything
I've been on here for over 7 years and consider this place MY social media. I don't mess with the others because anyone who does use them is constantly on them!! I'd rather put my face in a book instead.
I've always admired the artists on here who can use a pencil, drawing pad, or even a computer to create masterpieces. The advancement in technology brings our fantasies of creativity to life. There are others who use a camera and photograph people, places, events, and things. Some are very eye-catching and some are just ok.
I've always wanted to contribute to this site instead of just faving and saving pics while giving honest comments about what I consider beautiful art. Can't draw anything to save my life and don't have the money for any pc programs and really don't have the know-how to use those programs.
I've seen people post on other sites who they think should represent a movie character or TV character. This practice goes all the way back to the Wizard comic price guides back in the 80's & 90's that used to have section called Casting Call. They posted a picture of an person next to cartoon pic of someone they wanna see brought to life every once in a while.
With the help of the internet and Microsoft Powerpoint, I get to have that same kinda fun. I call my project "Leading Ladies". I cast an actress with a fictional character that I wanna see brought to life in a movie. I have my personal favorites, namely Gina Carano, but being a fan of movies and pop culture, in general, I appreciate the talent that is out there even the lesser known ones like Ronda Rousey who is getting into acting because she don't wanna do UFC forever.
I'm sticking with the ladies since there is not many female superhero movies out right now and they are plenty of superheroines to admire
I try to pick roles and movies that are not currently being filled by someone else. For example, I really wanna see my favorite Marvel lady, She-Hulk, get cast into a movie. I wanna see another Elektra made by a more believable character who can really portray the part better. Jennifer Garner did OK, but I think Lynn Collins can do her better.
I really wanna see a Birds of Prey movie since it is still one of the most popular comics around with Oracle formerly Batgirl teamed up with Black Canary, Huntress, and then Lady Blackhawk. In the comic, she has other heroes help out on some missions like Big Barda, Power Girl, Manhunter, Catwoman, Gypsy, and others.
When I match my photos, I wanna get the images to try a match as close as possible to really justify the comparison. My Elektra & Lynn Collins was my first and I really got lucky finding a pic of Lynn in the same pose as the Elektra pic I already chose. I actually have a 27x40 framed poster of that Elektra pic signed by Greg Horn himself at the last comic-con.
My other matches are a no-brainer based on their looks, natural abilities, or even talent of acting.
I recently did a request pic by one of my very close friends
. She really admired what I started doing and was wondering if it was possible to do a movie match with her heroine, Lady Quantum. With some research and a little bit of luck, we found Megan Avalon during our collaboration we ended up with this
. I think it turned out pretty damn good, too. LQ can sure whip up beautiful heroes
This pic was requested for usage (even though I got it off the internet) and she said no problem. After Megan herself saw the finished project, I was told by a friend that Megan really loved it!!
I will always give credit to whom it's due in my pics and this something I'm enjoying. I hope my future pics can put a smile on your face or even make ya think " that is a perfect match for that character" and you would wanna see them on the big screen even if the possiblities are really slim.
Someone may not agree with my choices, but that is quite alright. It's just my opinion. I hope to post something others may like now or later. I've posted about 7 and four of them have been favorited by folks!!
Here are some of my others
I've got about two more pages of ideas to get to so I better get cracking
I appreciate any comments about my pics and/or how I'm doing. Even if someone just looks at them, I appreciate that, too. I am open to suggestions as well.
