#489075 The Star Wars Non-Canon TV Show Topic (Except The Mandalorian is super great)

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM

I just watched the first Episode of the Mandalorian like everyone else who's posted here recently, and what do I think of it?

It's good.

 

Like, I don't really have any other type of praise besides that. If you expected a gritty show about a Bounty Hunter, then that's what you're going to get. This show diluted the bad taste left in my mouth from watching Solo failed look at Star War's criminal underworld, so I think this is definitely a step in the right direction. Filoni did a good job with this episode: it felt like a return to form for his style of directing like with Clone Wars, where he's allowed to show stuff like a guy being cut in half by a door, unlike with Rebels it felt like he was pressured by Disney to make it less dark in order to be more marketable to a younger audience.

 

I have three non-spoiler complaints at the moment, the first being that the show is that its too dark; not story wise, but in terms of lighting. I could barely see things in places like the cantina scenes. The second is that the CGI is a little bad in some places, like when the Ugnaut guy kicks his blurrg you can really tell its fake, I was able let it slide because I was enjoying myself. The third is that I hate the fact that this isn't a show about Boba and IG-88. The writing is good enough that I'm convinced that they could have done this if they had felt like it. The problem is how over-saturated these two are in Star Wars lore, so they think that not enough people would be interested, and by the time Disney bothers to actually create content on these characters I will have lost interest and moved on just like how I did with Snoke. It angers me that they don't want to funnel this creativity into characters like Boba, because they could create a new and interesting story with him if they tried.

 

Anyways, on to spoilers:

But, that's all my thoughts on this first episode. I'll definitively be tuning in next time because this show is exploiting my love of world-building, Mandalorians and Star Wars and I think I'm okay with it.

Your drawings have gotten way more detailed! I really pike the Blackbeard drawing.

Keep it up!

 

Thanks man! I appreciate the feeback!

 

Pretty badass stuff lately! The angels are awesome, and I love the Jabberwock, but I'd have to say the best one is that dragon vs. hydra. Good perspective, and the hydra looks great.

 

Hey man! I'm glad the art was able to lure you back here!

 

Anyways, I'm going to be splurging some art here. A lot of this stuff was done in October or older, so I hope you guys like it.

 

I did do Inktober this year, but since I don't want to post every single drawing here (especially since I posted them daily to my Twitter), you can check out them out on my Tumblr

 

Also, if you're a part of my content-feed Discord server, you know I've been commissioning Brett Neufield (creator of the Marblegate Webcomic, which you should read if you liked SYWBAA), and these are the four that he's done so far: my fantasy characters Dalton Westmoore, Malebranche the Malignant, Demetrius Bloodhaven, and Khraddik, Scourge of the South.

 

Yes, I plan on commissioning Scorp again at some point, but I'd have to get more money first.

 

Anyways, on to the actual art!

 

Here are some Fantasy Doodles:

fantasy_doodles_61_by_dwestmoore_ddjhlak

 

And have some Minecraft doodles as well:

 

pillager_and_ravager_by_dwestmoore_ddjhl

 

Sorry for the lack of art. College, work, procrastination, and personal issues have gotten in the way of me doing art lately.

 

But as always, Comments, Critiques, and Suggestions are always appreciated!

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 27 August 2019 - 06:01 AM

Wait that Dark Rey thing with the ridiculous double-saber is real?

 

I saw a .gif of it on Twitter and thought it was a parody.

 

No no, this is the parody:

Not going to lie, that saber flip made me cringe more than it made me go "whoa that's SO COOL"

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 26 May 2019 - 06:47 PM

This was quite a good art update. I enjoyed the gnome militiaman, the Hellzion Hussar and Cyclopes and the piece of the dragon burning the city.

You did an excellent job with the fire and the lighting of the scene. Well done.

 

Thanks!

 

Yeah, it took me a while to get it to look right. Turned out really well in the end!

 

Anyways, on to the art! You'd think that since I have more free time with the semester being over to be able to do this stuff, but I'm lazy.

 

First up, an old drawing of some elves that I don't think I've uploaded to here yet:

 

elves_by_dwestmoore_dd7u309-fullview.jpg

 

Next, here are some more Fantasy Doodles:

 

fantasy_doodles_57_by_dwestmoore_dd7u30n

 

fantasy_doodles_58_by_dwestmoore_dd7u316

 

Lastly, a redraw of the original Adventurers and NPCsfrom my Family's RPG:

the_beasthunters_by_dwestmoore_dd7u31s-f

 

Almost done with the mini-series of Dragons from my old writing, so I guess I'm going to be starting on redrawing the Player Characters and NPCs from that RPG.

#488570 Game of Thrones: Chaos Is A Ramp

As if to add insult to injury.

 

I understand that we want this show to be over as soon as possible, but come on.

 

 




#488549 Game of Thrones: Chaos Is A Ramp

Posted by Dalton Westmoore on 15 May 2019 - 06:00 AM

Except Avatar is baby trash

 

If you're talking about the James Cameron movie that nobody remembers but that we're getting a million sequels to, then you'd be right.

 

At least Avatar the Last Airbender is consistently good, while Game of Thrones was apparently only good while they still had source material to go off of.

 

Isn't them not nailing those things a good thing now tho? Like I thought it was 2019 and all fictional media has to just be postmodernist expectation subversion from wall to wall.

 

Only if you're an idiot like Rian Johnson.
