[#NOSPOILERS]Deadpool 2 (2018)Directed by David LeitchI've done multiple sketches based on this movie (almost everytime the studio released a trailer!), and was very excited to see it. Seen it twice so far, once yesterday and again this morning and I loved it.Time travelling soldier from the future, Cable (Josh Brolin) is wanting to kill a 14 year old mutant (Julian Dennison), and Deadpool must stop him. To do so, he puts together a team called the X-Force.This makes it sound like a run-of-the-mill sequel, but it's not. There are certain aspects of the story that are predictable (reminded me of one movie in particular, which I'll name in the first comment on this post), but the filmmakers find ways to subvert our expectations and add interesting elements to it. I thought it was well written (Ryan Reynolds is credited as co-writer this time). There's a lot to love about this movie – it's very, very entertaining with lots of jokes and references. It gets surprisingly emotional and touching at times too. The acting and soundtrack choices were great as well.Part 2 had almost double the budget of the first movie, and it shows – this feels more bigger and elaborate. I loved the violent and brutal action scenes, courtesy "John Wick" co-director David Leitch. They used Deadpool's regenerative powers in creative ways in the action scenes as well.There are a couple of blink-and-you'll-miss-it surprises, so do watch keenly. And there is a clever mid-credits scene (no post-credits scene). I loved the opening credits sequence too.Overall, I enjoyed the movie very much and I liked it better than the first film. Highly recommended watching.The version of the movie we got in India is rated "A" but I think it had only mild censorship, as far as I could tell. Only a couple of instances of muted dialogue, and I couldn't make out if any of the violence was cut.This is a sketch of Peter from the movie, who joins the X-Force team just after seeing the ad, though he doesn't have any superpowers (there is a Twitter and LinkedIn profile for Peter as well!). Drawn with 0.5mm 2B pencil and @Prismacolor pencils on Brustro sketchbook and scanned.#346 / 18-May-18

Captain America: Civil War (2016)Directed by Anthony and Joe RussoBirthday Drawing! Yesterday, 15-May-18, was my birthday, and I re-watched "Captain America: Civil War", as it recently came on Netflix.It's such a well made movie. The action, story, pacing, character conflicts, drama are all very well done, and the acting from all is great. Certainly, "Avengers: Infinity War" was in safe hands with the Russo Brothers at the helm.The movie made you care for all the characters and gave plausible motivations for Team Tony and Team Cap. This was pretty much an "Avengers Part 2.5", considering the scope.I realised I never did a proper drawing of possibly the biggest star in the entire MCU, so did this drawing yesterday. Robert Downey Jr made the role of Tony Stark / Iron Man his own. The drawing was done with my 0.5mm 2B mechanical pencil on Brustro sketchbook and scanned.I started this drawing yesterday, but only finished it today. Still, I'll consider it a Birthday drawing!#345 / 16-May-18#dailymoviesketch #ironman #tonystark #captainamerica #civilwar #avengers #infinitywar #avengersinfinitywar #marvel #mcu #pencil #pencilart #worldofnerdart @worldofnerdart

I had posted this on @karthikabhiram earlier, so thought I'd post it here also. This is an entry for @instagram's Weekend Hashtag Project #WHPimagination. You can see the post on my other account to see how I shot this photo. I'm looking forward to watching "Deadpool 2" a few days from now! #vsco #canon #sl2 #200d #24mm #24mmpancake #handsinframe #DailyMovieSketch #deadpool2

[#NOSPOILERS POST – PART OF THIS CONTENT IS TAKEN FROM MY POST YESTERDAY ON @karthikabhiram]Avengers: Infinity War (2018)Directed by Anthony and Joe Russo "Have you ever seen this really old movie "Aliens"?" I watched "Avengers: Infinity War" for the second time a couple of days ago. I booked in 2D this time, and in one of the new PVR Cinemas that has opened – this is in Panjagutta, in Next Galleria Mall. I loved the movie, of course, and probably now, rewatching all those moments and great scenes, confirmed this as a 10/10 movie for me. By now though since many people have seen it more than once, the audience participation was less. There is a certain charm in seeing it early, or on opening day, and participating in the hooting and cheering. This time watching in 2D and that too in a new theatre, the image quality was bright and excellent. One can appreciate the CG work on Thanos better – though at some points the CG was not as good as in other places, when it was on, it was on and how! You could make out so many details and nuanced expressions on his face. I could also make out some of the swear words that were muted, more than the first time I saw it! (Yes, although no scenes are cut in India, our Censor board has muted some of the swear words, and they blurred Star-Lord showing the finger.) Also, I observed something that I missed the first time that @newrockstars pointed out – the post credits scene has only one cut – after the two characters get out of the car, the rest of the scene is a single take. Next, once this movie comes out on digital, I would like to see it in the IMAX aspect ratio (at Hyderabad we got the 2.35:1 version only and not the Digital IMAX 1.9:1 version). I drew Spider-Man in his Iron Spider suit. He was one of my favourite characters from the movie and Tom Holland's acting was great. The drawing was done with @Prismacolor pencils, 0.5mm 2B pencil on Brustro sketchbook and scanned. One bit of trivia: Spider-Man making a reference to a James Cameron movie is interesting, because I believe Cameron worked on a Spider-Man movie in the 1990s, elements of which made it to the 2002 Sam Raimi version. #344 / 10-May-18

Altered Carbon (2018)Created by Laeta KalogridisI watched this Netflix show a couple of months ago, but didn't get around to doing a sketch based on it till now. The show is set in the far future, almost 400 years from now. In this world, it is possible to download a person's consciousness into what is called a stack, a device attached to the spine at the base of the neck. This makes bodies simply "sleeves" for a person, and if one is rich enough, they can practically live forever, by resleeving themselves indefinitely. One such super rich "meth", Laurens Bancroft, gets soldier Takeshi Kovacs resleeved into a new body after over 250 years on ice, and asks him to solve Laurens's own murder – someone destroyed his stack as well as his sleeve, but thanks to his stack being backed up, he lives but has no memory of 48 hours, the time during which the murder happened.The show is 10 episodes long and I really loved it. It has fascinating ideas, blending those with a cyberpunk feel, noir mystery and action. The show features some kickass action choreography. It's definitely not for kids as it features a good helping of violence and nudity (there is even a very well done fight scene with one female character completely naked). The production values are high, the show looks awesome. Highly recommended for any science fiction fan. I drew Joel Kinnaman from the show, this is a still from the trailer showing the sleeve that he inhabits as Takeshi Kovacs, in the present timeline of the show. The drawing was done with 0.5mm 2B pencil on Brustro sketchbook and scanned. #343 / 7-May-18#DailyMovieSketch #alteredcarbon #takeshikovacs #stack #sleeve #pencildrawing #pencilsketch #pencil #pencilart #artistsofinstagram #artistsoninstagram #netflix #cyberpunk

Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)Directed by Irvin KershnerI'm a day late in saying this, but Happy Star Wars Day! (May 4) I wanted to complete this drawing and post it yesterday, but managed to finish it only today.I was thinking of what to draw for the occasion, and I realised that I haven't drawn Yoda here before, so I picked that. This also reminded me of Spider-Man from "Captain America: Civil War" – his dialogue "Hey guys! You ever see that really old movie? "Empire Strikes Back"?". The drawing was done with 0.5mm 2B and @Prismacolor pencils on paper and scanned.#342 / 5-May-18#StarWarsDay #MayThe4thBeWithYou #MayThe4th #Yoda #StarWars #Empire #TheEmpireStrikesBack #Prismacolor #pencil#dailymoviesketch

Ant-Man and The Wasp (2018)Directed by Peyton ReedA new trailer for this movie was released a couple of days back, so I thought I'll draw something based on it for today's sketch. Also, since these movies play on scale, I thought I'll draw a miniature. This drawing is the size of a ₹2 coin. It's Evangeline Lilly as Hope in her Wasp costume. Drawn with 0.5mm 2B pencil on Brustro sketchbook and scanned. #341 / 3-May-18

Thor: Ragnarok (2017)Directed by Taika WaititiI re-watched "Thor: Ragnarok" a few days before and really enjoyed the movie the second time. The first time I saw it, it's light tone I felt was kind of working against the seriousness of the Ragnarok event and it's overall place in the MCU. However, the second time, I liked it a lot more, and even felt the ending thematically worked better. There's a lot to like about the movie, it's very funny and charming, and I loved Mark Mothersbaugh's 1980s inspired music (apparently, it was a sort of counter to the video essay that mentioned that Marvel movies don't have memorable music). Two tracks I really like are "Planet Sakaar" and "Grandmaster Jam Session", both of which play during the end credits (main-on-end, and end respectively). The tone of the movie makes it feel like a smaller, more indie film, and not the multimillion dollar blockbuster that it actually is. It's one of the more quirky entries in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, like James Gunn's "Guardians of the Galaxy" movies.It's good I saw it just before "Avengers: Infinity War", since that movie picks up directly after "Thor: Ragnarok" and I was able to connect events better.Tessa Thompson made an impression as Scrapper 142 / Valkyrie in the movie. She was also in "Annihilation" which I recently watched, and so, I wanted to draw her. This drawing was done with 0.5mm 2B pencil on Brustro sketchbook and scanned. #340 / 1-May-18#thor #ragnarok #thorragnarok #infinitywar #avengers #avengersinfinitywar #marvel #marvelstudios #DailyMovieSketch #valkyrie #tessathompson #taikawaititi #pencildrawing #pencilsketch #pencil

[#NOSPOILERS REVIEW | MORE #NOSPOILERS THOUGHTS IN FIRST COMMENT]Avengers: Infinity War (2018)Directed by Anthony and Joe RussoFans have waited for "Avengers: Infinity War" for 10 years. 18 movies built up to this – does it live up to the hype? Absolutely!The 'mad Titan' Thanos is on a quest to collect the six Infinity Stones. Once he gets them, he aims to use them to eradicate half the life in the universe, which he believes will restore balance. The Avengers, Doctor Strange and the Guardians of the Galaxy must stop him. "Infinity War" is nothing short of amazing. It's epic, dark, the stakes are high, there are moments of despair, it gets emotional, but it is also very entertaining. There are superb character moments, and crowd pleasing scenes that had audiences cheering at many points in the film.It's a credit to the Russos that they brought so many characters, established by different filmmakers in earlier movies (even the more eccentric ones by James Gunn and Taika Waititi), all into this one huge canvas, and it all works wonderfully. It moves at a breakneck pace, I actually felt 149 min was too short.Josh Brolin as Thanos was amazing, so operatic and such presence. CGI was a bit uneven in parts but he was so well written and performed, so it works. The visuals are great, all the performances are terrific.The one criticism I had was that things moved forward quickly because the plot demanded it. However, they did the best they could to fit in all the story elements, so this can be excused.What an ending – it left me shell shocked and speechless. I needed the time during the credits to actually recover from the shock of what I'd just seen! We have to see what they do in the next Avengers movie (apparently the title is a spoiler, that's why they haven't revealed it yet). The Russos and Marvel Boss Kevin Feige weren't kidding about major changes in the MCU!This is definitely one of the best MCU movies, and one of the best comic book movies ever. Highly recommended and a 10/10 from me. I will watch it again.#339 / 29-Apr-18#Avengers #InfinityWar #AvengersInfinityWar #DailyMovieSketch #Thanos#InfinityGauntlet #ThanosDemandsYourSilence

Entry for @instagram's Weekend Hashtag Project #WHPoddlysatisfying. Aren't the pencil strokes pleasing to see and hear? "Avengers: Infinity War" was one fantastic movie, I'll post my detailed NO SPOILER review once I'm done with this sketch of Thanos. I also posted this same video on @karthikabhiram. #vsco #samsung #galaxys7 #handsinframe #avengers #avengersinfinitywar #infinitywar #Thanos #DailyMovieSketch #pencildrawing #asmr
