Batman: The Animated Series (1992-1995)Created by Bruce Timm and Eric RadomskiWhile gearing up to watch #StarWars #TheLastJedi (booked tickets for Sunday), I watched a few episodes of Batman: The Animated Series. The show is really superbly done, no wonder it was critically acclaimed and won many awards. One of the standout aspects was Luke Skywalker / Mark Hamill's voice work as The Joker. It's pretty amazing (he has even read a few of Donald Trump's tweets in that voice). So I did a sketch of The Joker from the show, this is I believe the first appearance of the character (Episode 2). It was drawn in 0.5mm 2B pencil, @prismacolor pencils and white gel pen on @cansonpaper_northamerica paper.#batman #tas #joker #markhamill#309 / 14-Dec-17

Dark (2017)Created by Baran bo Odar and Jantje FrieseThis weekend, I finished watching the 10 episodes of this German show, made for Netflix. "Dark" is a blend of dark family drama, science fiction and horror. The core plot line of the show concerns the disappearance of a 12 year old boy in the sleepy town of Winden, which mirrors events from 33 years ago. We are introduced to four families from the town – Nielsen, Tiedemann, Doppler and Kahnwald – whose stories span multiple time lines, where past, present and future influence one another. Knowing more might actually detract from your enjoyment of the show. You have to pay attention and follow the characters, to the show's credit, whenever you experience a feeling of confusion, there'll typically be a flashback or insert shot to help you understand.I enjoyed the show greatly. The ending is open for future seasons, and while the themes aren't exactly something never been done before, it's inventively packaged. The production values are fantastic (the gorgeous cinematography is on the Alexa 65), the music and soundtrack is great as is the acting. IMDb says the show has a Dolby Atmos sound mix. Certain exposition heavy scenes called attention to themselves otherwise the tone is spot on. I watched it in German with English Subtitles. There is an English dub available but I prefer listening to the original language.You might hear comparisons with "Stranger Things", to me, the shows are very different. This show reminded me more of "Donnie Darko" and "Back to the Future" than anything else. If you've just finished your recent binge watch and are looking for something to fill the void, go for "Dark" – it's a really good show. This is a drawing of one of the characters from the show. I don't want to mention who it is, because part of the experience lies in letting the show gradually reveal things to the audience, and I wouldn't want to come in the way of that. It was drawn with @prismacolorPencils, 0.5mm 2B pencil, and a white gel pen on Canson paper. I think this is one of my best drawings till date, I'm really pleased with the way it came out. #308 / 11-Dec-17

Theeran Adhigaaram Ondru a.k.a. Khakee The Power of Police (2017)Directed by H VinothI had been hearing a lot of good things about this movie, so I watched it a couple of weeks back and really liked it. It's only now that I got around to doing this sketch though. I watched the Telugu dubbed version of this movie, the title being "Khakee". I think it's still running in theatres this week, so if you can I would suggest checking it out. The movie stars Karthi as Tamil Nadu Police Officer Dheeraj, and it's about how he and his team solved a case of a series of brutal murders / robberies in the early 2000s. What's interesting is that the movie is based on actual events and an actual case. There are interviews on YouTube with the real life officer on which the character is based, and they talk about the research that went into making the movie (the person who plays a fingerprint expert in the film is apparently the one who actually worked on the real case). I thought the movie worked well as a cinematic actioner, blended with more realistic police thriller elements. The first half hour or so of the movie, which focuses on the romance between Karthi and Rakul Preet I felt could have been trimmed down or handled differently, but once the main story started it just didn't let up and it was really intense (maybe a bit much for its U/A rating). It was fast paced and very well made, plus featured locations in North India which you don't typically see in a South Indian movie. Overall I really liked it, definitely it's one of the best Tamil / Telugu films of the year.This is a sketch of Karthi when he charges ahead along with his team in a desert area. It was drawn in 0.5mm 2B pencil and scanned.#307 / 6-Dec-17#theeran #khakee #DailyMovieSketch #tamil #telugu #karthi #rakulpreet
