Swiss Army Man
To get this out of the way:
Sketches made for this fanart: tabascofanatikerin.deviantart.…

This is my water colour painting and fanart of the movie "Swiss Army Man" (2016), starring Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe.
To me personally, it's a very fun, touching movie and my personal #1 movie of 2016. It gave me a lot of happiness and fun and I'm looking forward to the DVD release already.

After watching it in the theater back then, I wanted to create something about it so bad.
Unfortunately the project was constantly on hold since I had a lot of work (thus overtime) and other more important stuff to do during this time period. That's why it hasn't been finished earlier.

Anyway, it's a collection of a few (key) scenes of the movie.
If you haven't seen "Swiss Army Man" and plan to see it, better not read the following list because...
SPOILER ALERT!!!

From top to bottom:

  1. The famous "jet-skiing the corpse" scene, of course. What more to explain here?
    And I'm especially satisfied with Hank's happy face here.
  2. Here Hank (Paul Dano) takes Manny (Daniel Radcliffe) with him on his trip through the wild...after realizing that stimulating Manny with a "Sports Illustrated" magazin he found might help them both find the way home to civilization. Makes sense. It's very silly but funny :D
    Here I tried to catch the bright sunset light shining as well as possible.
  3. The bus created out of wood and junk with Hank reenacting a situation with him falling in love with a girl on the bus.
    It's a sweet, quite lyrically scene full of creative stuff like the "bus" or dressing as this girl.
  4. Out of the "montage" sequence, when Hank and Manny have their time of their life by partying and other activities.
  5. The kiss underwater (not just meant romantically, it's for giving/receiving air but still...), one of my favourite scenes. Just beautiful and rather unusual, the same surprising feeling I felt during the movie "Her" (2014). By the way: this is where I used sea salt on my painting for the very first time. And I'm happy with the result :aww:
  6. Just a closer with Hank and Manny wandering :)

Just a few words about making this:
It was not meant to be a realistic fanart. I definitely wanted to put in my own style of drawing characters, of course.
And the decision to use black coloured pencil was made in order to make the artwork more cartoonish while also make the characters more recognizable in the painting (also pencil reflects too much here and there).
Also this time I decided to show the rough frames and corners of the paintings instead of cutting them out.

Hopefully you like the result :aww:

Painted with water colour, pencil and coloured pencil (black only).

Dungeons and Dragons: SP-Forum Characters
My first drawing of all the characters together (so far) of mine and my good friends from the discussion board sp-forum.de (but I also know them in person).

However, I only did the design of myself (Maruphis) and of the couple Urixus and Rusev (who are cursed by a witch and are grown together on their arms) who have never put out an exact design drawing but their sketches and descriptions helped me, I mostly made up Urixus' costume. Also the "Dungeon Master" doesn't have a clear design, I drew him there to be fair and have the complete group.
I'm willing to redraw them if they wish ;)
Everyone else (Orna, Alric, Skatoluomi, Dwoiz) has been pretty much designed already by their players and I took their designs as references.

The DA profiles of some of the characters by the way:
Dungeon Master = :iconkakaojunkey:
Orna = :iconjustschramme:
Urixus = :iconflovatare:
Dwoiz = :iconzwerg-im-bikini:
Maruphis = :icontabascofanatikerin: (me, of course)

Drawn with pencil.

So this was 2016.
I don't know about you but to me personally, 2016 was as good or bad as the year before when it comes to balance. But a lot happened, not only in the world, but in my life. And I'm going to keep it short as well as possible.

First the good stuff:
I finally could start a new psychotherapy with a very nice psychologist and also taking pills in order to fight depression. So far the pills seem to have a mild but positive effect so far and the talkings help me a lot. I hope this continues like that.
Also I could do two big trips outside of my annual trips to my friends in Germany. These were a summer vacation in Eastern Frisia and three days (including my birthday) in Disneyland Paris in France. I had awesome times there.
When it comes to cinema releases this year, I beat my own record of seen movies. And I tried out playing "Dungeons and Dragons" for the first time (via voice chat and online gaming) and I've been playing this since then with friends from time to time.

What's not that good, more like in the middle:
To express this in Facebook speak: In a relationship -> single. After 7 years I decided to end the relationship due to various reasons. It's not something I cheer about at all but I still feel that it was the right choice. So this year I moved again, into a bit smaller apartment in the same town but also in a better location of it.

The bad stuff:
From an occupational point of view, it was the most exhausting for years. A lot of changes in our team and company, more responsibility, more stress and thus a couple of disappointments and problems throughout the year.
As implied I had lots of trouble with my depression and anxiety going on and that's why I decided to finally do something against it (with the start of the new therapy but also by volunteering in a research study about it as a start).
And thankfully not as ongoing but still very painful was an appointment at one dental appointment (root canal treatment that didn't go that well), definitely gave me one of the worst pains of the last couple of years.

I can't say it was a good year, but I'm fair and say that I also couldn't call it a failure since I've achieved some progress here and there (travelling more, starting psychotherapy, living more like the way I was more and more seeking).
And yes, there was a lot of frightening crap going on in the world, I cannot ignore that for sure: Trump, IS, developments in my German home country...I can't tell if we have the worst behind or ahead of us now.

But I don't want to end this journal with depressing topics. So I'm ending it by telling you my personal ranking of movies I've seen at the theaters, so for a complete list with explanations, please check the link here: letterboxd.com/tabascofanatic/… (FYI: however, I want to catch up on Disney's "Moana" which has started about a week ago here but I can't watch it until the beginning of January, so this movie might be added to the list very soon).

Last but not least: I wish you just the best for 2017 and for sure a better year than the now ending one.
Take care and get safely and happily into the new year!
