New WIP! Gonna let this one dry for a few days and then there's some touching up to do... but anyway, here's a nice big almost-finished canvas of a cranky owlface:

Haven't been painting much these last couple of months as life's been a bit rough with a death in the family and some other crud.

But I got the brushes out and forced myself to the easel, and this fell out. Gotta be honest, I hated it for 95% of the process; still not sure if it's one I "like" like, but something clicked in the last 5 minutes and I'mma keep it, if only because it's the first I've finished in a while.

Thoughts?

HE HAS THE MAC-GUFFIN. IT'S GLOOOOOOWING. IT WINT INTO HIS BRAIN AND NOW THERE'S GLOWING FISH THINGS SHOOTING ON THE SCREEN IN HIS BRAIN.

WHAT.

WHUT.

AAAAAAAAAAAAAA

Kudos to Nicoke Kidman. She said the "one true king" line without laughing. Also, Waterboy has the silly orange armour now.

Wheeee~~~

Oh. COM.E ON.

COME. ON.

COME OOOOOOOOOOOOOON.

Is the seaworm thing talking?

IS THE SEAWORM THING TALKING?

It jsuts said "so be it". In a cliche'd evil guardian rasp.

THIS MOVIE... OH MY GOD THIS MOVIE. THIS WAS SUPPOSED TO BE THE GOOD ONE. HOW IS THIS THE GOOD ONE?

Keep looking at Princess Love Interest.

Bright (bad cosplay wig) red hair, skin-tight green bodysuit.

She looks like a christmas tree. Everytime I look at her my drunk brain screams "CHRISTMAS TREE".

Waterboys mom lives on dinosaur... place. Shows up in weird, toothy armour with her face covered. She's been alive all along! Living in this strange, lush, hidden land! "Tell me about your father!"

Gettin' real strong How To Train Your Dragon 2 vibes right now.

Seriously, did the director just point at other movies and say "do that"?

I'm too drunk for this shit.

SUDDEN DINOSAURS. The movie has SUDDEN. DAMN. DINOSAURS.

Because why TF not?

This movie will break your damn neck, it swings so hard from one thing to the next.

I'm gonna admit it. The toothy fish monster things swarming as Waterboy and Ginger Princess dive into the trench?

That looks cool, and the music backs it up.

...occasionally, it looks cool. There's some shitty cuts. But there's moments, where it's like that moment in the recent-ish godzilla where the skydivers fall through the clouds trailing flares and tense slightly operatic music builds in the background.

...I get the feeling the director saw godzilla and said "Do that."

I'm mostly drunk.

And I just predicted half the dialogue of a scene before it was said. Word. For. Freakin'. Word.

THIS SHOULD NOT HAPPEN.

Is there any connective tissue in this movie or did the producers just dream up a bunch of (what they hoped were) cool-looking moments and staple it together with tired tropes?

Because it feels like a bunch of attempted cool ideas stapled together with tired tropes.

Tribal-tattooed drummer octopus was cool though. I'll give 'em that.

AHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA... oh sweet christ, this fight scene. I don't care how good the fight choreography is or isn't. The villain design is the silliest I've seen in AAAAAAAAAAGES and he's trying SO SO hard to sound tough.

But he's a ROCKET POWERED BUG. With giant red LASER EYES.

Who calls himself BLACK MANTA.

COME ON.

GO GO POWER RANGEEEEEEEEEEEEERS!!

Seriously, don't jumpscare a villain into a scene and have him look like THIS.

I'mma laugh at you. And your design. And you should feel bad.

AAAAH. SUDDEN FISH MAN. Talking to King Fishdick. Who's holding his trident so it looks like devil horns because EVIL.

I WANT TO SLAP THIS CINEMATOGRAPHER. OR DIRECTOR. OR BOTH. WITH A SLIGHTLY SPOILED HADDOCK.

Suddenly the salty sea fart movie is Indiana Jones.

Waterboy is about to find the MacGuffin.

Scratch that, only a cryptic clue to the MacGuffin.

This all feels like a string of Skyrim quests.

Sweet jesus, I'm only halfway through -_-

For the last five minutes I've ...not shouted, but thought very very loud and hard at the screen (ma's asleep in the next room). All some variation of

"OH COME ON!!1!"

This movie just feels so... paint-by-numbers. It subverts tropes by leaning harder into other tropes, while thinking it's smart. All with cgi /design that feels... silly.

*sigh* time for more booze.

Oop, King Fishdick broke Waterboy's long hard stick but got blown away by a bubble.

...now it's techno underwater tron.

...I'mma get more booze.

Also, how does the physics work in this world? At one point they're neutrally buoyant, floating, (even in armour), then they're falling like they would through air.

Also water doesn't conduct heat and lava doesn't cool but flows in glowing red rivers (so the water in this stadium should be cooking the audience and turbulent) and... and...

AND THINGS DON'T WORK THAT WAY.

Yes, yes, comic book movie, but dammit, made up worlds still need rules.

I'mma have more booze. Not drunk enough yet.

Ooh, Waterboy and King Fishdick are having the obligatory deathmatch because of course they are.

Big stadium with the audience heckling in a painfully plot-relevant manner. Apparently jellyfish are fans of dumb death matches, there's a few in the audience.

I'M NOT DRUNK ENOUGH, THAT DRUMMING OCTOPUS WOULD BE 500% MORE AWESOME IF I WAS DRUNK. But seriously, so close to lava? That thing is boiled calamari :<

Sod this. I'm getting booze and watching the rest of this drunk.

Oh look... the evil sea king in the shiny gold suit has an exaggerated... "cod"...piece.

Don't know is name. I'mma call him fishdick.
