Illustration Friday - Fleeting

Hey There,

This is my entry for this weeks Illustration Friday, the topic was 'fleeting' and at first I wasn't sure I was going to do it. I won't show you the sketches, but my first idea was a guy sitting in a coffin with a 'how the hell did this happen?' expression on his face.

It was as bad as it sounds. I decided to go with something else. So I thought, what's fleeting? Space ships? In a way, yes, but they're difficult to draw without copying someone else, so I went for time instead. (click to enlarge as always)

Review Time
I watched Welcome to the Jungle last night. It has the Rock in it and Sean William Scott. It's pretty generic, mindless and derivative as hell, but fun while it lasts. The film is clearly a vehicle for former WWF doucebag The Rock and as a result it just glorifies him in a way that's pretty lame. For a start he wins all fights, even when he shouldn't. He doesnt use guns (but when he does he's able to hit some guy behind cover 50 yards away with a shotgun) and in order to make him seem like a 'normal' person, he also wants to be a chef. Even though you don't see him once get behind a stove.

Sean William Scott was a bit better but his character was still just another derivation of Stifler, just with a treasure hunting streak (for some reason). I've seen him act better (he was the lead in Trainwreck: My Life as an Idiot which despite the IMDB ranking was actually pretty good).

I guess what I'm trying to say is, that Welcome to the Jungle, is to cinema what McDonalds is to steak. Nice stab at it, but trying to please everyone at once and failing horribly.

Oh! I LOVE this picture. Besides being funny (all those different clocks flying through space), it's really beautiful to look at.
