Nine days from now I will be seeing a Marvel movie for the first time in two years. No, this isn’t a highly-anticipated series that’s going to run for six weeks and leave us clamoring for more answers every week. It’s one two hour and fourteen minute film and that’s it. It’s an exciting prospect.
So, in anticipation for the 24th movie in the MCU, here’s some more Black Widow appreciation. First up, I share another favorite Black Widow moment. Enjoy!
Black Widow’s Entrance in Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Captain America: The Winter Soldier was the movie that turned me into a Black Widow fan. This film shined a light on her story that hadn’t been shone before and it made me empathize with her character and want to know (and see) more.
But it was this scene that I remember bringing a smile to my face. Steve Rogers is beginning to forge a new friendship with future Cap, Sam Wilson, when Natasha Romanoff drives up in a sleek, low to the ground, black Corvette, looking like the ultimate spy that she is. Then she does something that she ultimately never does again in the MCU; she tells a joke: “Hey fellas. Does anyone know where the Smithsonian is? I’m here to pick up a fossil.”
In that one moment we learn two things: A) she likes to drive in style and B) she’s actually a laid-back person if you get to know her, which shows how comfortable she had gotten with Steve Rogers. It was a wonderful moment that I thought was perfect to highlight today.
It’sbeen a day since Loki but my thoughts are still very much on the God of Mischief’s elating episode and the series so far. Today, in honor of the series’ first three glorious episodes, I’m sharing some fan art inspired by each episode from the incomparable Uzuri Art. Enjoy!
The first episode of Loki really beat our favorite mischievous Asgardian down bit by bit until he was a crying, disheveled husk of himself. This piece encapsulates his “I don’t have time for this. I’m a God” personality in a nutshell.
I’m so excited to share this week’s art. There are a couple of pieces that have absolutely blown my mind and I have been waiting to show them to you. Here they are.
My sister and I have loved Avatar: The Last Airbender since we were little girls. Now, as a young adult, my sister has translated that love into realistic portraits of the characters and I am utterly blown away.
I have always wanted to see these characters in accurate, realistic ways and this, this is just perfect. She will be drawing more The Last Airbender characters in this style and I am thrilled to share them with you next week.
If you’d like to see more of her work make sure to check out her Instagram page here: @uzuriart.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a tremendous day.
To say I’m excited for The Mandalorian is an understatement and the same thing can be said about my sister. We cannot wait to see this story and my sister has drawn a lovely piece of art to express her excitement about the series. Here it is.
Um, The Mandalorian is a really cool character and this piece of art highlights that immensely.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a lovely day.
As little girls, my sister and I LOVED gawking at Padme’s stunning wardrobes and hairstyles. As Queen Amidala, she oozed authority with her powerful gowns, eclectic hairstyles, and bold makeup. As Senator Amidala, her style ranged from politically appropriate to dazzlingly flirtatious to no-nonsense fighter all in one movie (Attack of the Clones). It’s safe to say, as children, and even as adults, we have been fascinated by Padme’s incredible getups throughout her involvement in the franchise.
For the final presentation of my sister’s undeniably fantastic fan art, she is sharing her love of Queen Amidala in a new format; manga. Here it is.
Stunning is one of many descriptions I will provide to praise this beautiful work of art. Every time I see it I am absolutely blown away by how ridiculously incredible the attention to detail is in this, and I will say it again, STUNNING piece.
From the gleam in the hair to the shockingly tangible softness of the fabric discerned in the gown and all the way down to the glitter in the headdress, this picture is simply…
I’m at a loss of words.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a magnificent day. May the Force be with you, always.
The end of May was a pretty exciting time for Star Wars fans as Vanity Fair released a tantalizing issue focusing on the highly-anticipated Skywalker saga finale. We got our first look at new characters featured in this upcoming Star Wars movie, new aliens and planets, and an idea of what to expect from the film.
My sister and I were clearly ecstatic about the issue but, as always, my sister takes her excitement and converts that joy into some truly fascinating art and that’s what she did these covers. Here they are.
