I went to see Prometheus on friday as it opened here. Pretty much the only part that impressed me about the it was the android, David. And let's face it even his part was pretty bad. Being a huge fan of the Alien frachise otherwise this just made me want to crawl under my seat and rock myself gently while humming something soothing.
Never the less it lead to a bit of late night sketching and turned into a portrait of the said android, David. At first there was only David in the pic but then he felt so lonely that I gave him a Xenomorph buddy to play with.
OK, I think it's best I add this here. I know I opened the conversation by commenting on Prometheus myself. And it has budded some interesting discussions about the movie itself and the Alien franchise. But I am getting slightly tired of all the people telling me how I just expected it to be in canon and hence didn't like it. No, I did not expect that. Being a 30 something movie buff and having followed this particular franchise most of my life, I had actually checked my facts before going in.
I am also glad many of you guys liked it. Good on you. I'm sure if we now started really talking about movies overall we'd figure out many of you love other movies too that I think are utterly rubbish and the same goes the other way around. I'm sure plenty of you would sneer at me saying I love the speech of President Bartlett in ID4. And be right to do so.
But as this is an art forum, not a movie one, I really hoped for more critique on the artwork and less on my movie taste when pressing the "critiques requested" button.
