OMH Main Characters by Prosper-the-XVIII
OMH Main Characters
Okay, the main characters in the story really are Lori and Nora. Them aside, Mitch and Adeline just happen to be the ones I've put the most thought into. I realised that it's probably best just to envision the characters as having their actors' VOICES rather than doing what I did with WwL and putting myself through this ridiculous pressure to make them look exactly like their actors.

Lori is just Lori - I've drawn her a few other times, so you've all seen her before. Her sidecut does look really ginger here, but it's because she's a natural strawberry blonde rather than the sort of light brunette I've drawn her as in the past. Also, I've taken to drawing her with her nose pierced, and I like it, so it's staying.

Wow, first drawing of Nora from the front :la: She's actually so cute, I cannot even begin to describe it :aww: 

Mitch turned out looking like George fucking Clooney or something :facepalm: I think it might just be the way his face looks, but I struggled a bit with making him look old enough (mind you, he is only about 20 years older than Lori, who's in her early 40's.) He does look quite similar to the way I drew him in my mind, though - it's just how posed he looks/ I'm working on a HUUUUGE piece about him and Lori, which he's obviously in a lot, so having his face nailed down is kinda important. I originally pictured both him and Lori as wearing glasses, but I can't draw that for shit, so out that went. He also looked more like Woody Harrleson in my original ideas (shaved head and stubble - that kind of thing) but I thought the overgrown Marines cut suited better. 

And Adeline...I love how she turned out, but she doesn't exactly look the way she's meant to - she's from Korea, and while I think I did okay on her features, she does still look almost Hawaiian. Well, practice makes perfect, I guess ^^; She is also quite tomboyish, though not as much as Lori
Loading...
I thought that because it sounds cool, 'Lance Corporal' was a higher rank than it actually is. So Lori's getting a promotion ^^; For those of you who don't know, LCpL is two higher than Private, which isn't all too impressive. So Lori's now going Master Gunnery Sergeant (MGySgt). This change is mostly because she did what she did for fucking ages, and it was just sorta unrealistic that she'd stay so low down for nine years - I'd always had her down as something high up, this is just a case of me not doing my research properly beforehand. So now I need to go reread anything she's been in and change that :P
Hasta la vista, kids,

Whoops by Prosper-the-XVIII
Whoops
Belated birthday gift for :icon13foxywolf666: I need to get a calendar :roll:...Foxy, sorry on both counts of a) missing your actual birthday and b) on behalf of Rana because she has no self-control :lol: I do really, really hope you had a good one.

I had the idea of something bondage-y involving ribbons (i.e. ask-silva.tumblr.com/post/3714… ) however, Rana has her reservations about being tied up for obvious reasons (she is, however, happy to do the tying) so in her best interest I decided not to. Instead she's just wearing...well, not much. Pasties with bows on (NIPPIE HATS! :la:) undies, heels, and fuck-all else, just how I, Severine, much of her fanbase (if you can call four people a fanbase), and half of the guys she's killed like it :drool: 

Oh, and please excuse the shitey quality of the photo ^^; the lighting was pretty shoddy in my room, and she's not really meant to have that huge dark spot on her abdomen.

Recast Meme - Big Driver by Prosper-the-XVIII
Recast Meme - Big Driver
As I said, I absolutely hated the casting of Big Driver, as much as the script and plotline were amazing. I know this isn't technically the purpose of this meme, but I wanted to just talk about the faces and voices that fit better with the book in my opinion.

Tess Thorne - Wanda Sykes: First of all, I pictured Tess as being older, more open and friendly (at least pre-incident) and kinda frumpier in the nicest way possible. Tess as played by Maria Bello was too uptight and executive in my opinion - I'm sure it wasn't down to the acting rather than how the film was written. Still, I think a less rigid portrayal of Tess would have been better, and Wanda fit the bill.

Ramona Norville - Lea DeLaria: I think Ramona got screwed over the most to be honest. In the books, she's an exceptionally butch lesbian, and a lot less approachable and friendly than film!Ramona. While reading, she was basically Boo from Orange is the New Black in my head, so it had to be Lea. Again, it's less down to the acting of the actress they picked, and more to do with writing, shoddy casting, and basically just blatant erasure. That's what pisses me off the most - they could have kept her as being LGBT and it wouldn't have hurt the story AT ALL. They just chose not to. 

Big Driver - Jared Padalecki: Aside from Betsy, I think they got this one the best. I just changed it for the fact that I pictured Big Driver being less Brony Neckbeard-ish. That was just the vibe I got from how they chose to make the character look. 

Doreen - Maggie Smith: Given that Fritzy had no involvement as Tess' conscience, they used Doreen to play 'good cop', and she was a lot less so in the book. I say, give the cat a voice, and let Doreen be her brashly badass self. Also, all the Knitting Circle ladies were British in my head.

Betsy Neal - Joan Jett: Only character I agreed with. I'd just have her in it more - kinda pissed that they missed out the little heart-to-heart between Betsy and Tess at the end.

Fritzy - Other random cat: I'm just nitpicking now. But Fritzy was ginger. How hard is it to get a slightly different coloured cat? (Looking at you, Hunger Games franchise)

Betsy by Prosper-the-XVIII
Betsy
Long time no see :lol: It may be worth mentioning that I kind of buggered off to France for a fortnight without telling anyone ^^; Anyway, I had a great trip, but I didn't manage to draw much. However, I read a fuck ton of Stephen King - I got through Full Dark No Stars on the coach journey there, and I'm just about finished Pet Semetary. I fucking LOVED FDNS, my favourite story was by far Big Driver, my favourite character was this lovely lass above; imagine how much I freaked when I found out that there was a film, and Betsy was played by Joan Jett :la: I watched it yesterday, and while it was okay, I have a set of complaints with it that I'll post along with a recast meme that I'm about to put up. Basically, the casting was about as far from true-to-book as it gets, and I think that Betsy was about the only character that they got right. 

She is a lot more true-to-book above - I tweaked her design to add in a few more things the film missed out. Firstly, even though it's pretty subtle, she does have some description of a scar to her face - it was briefly mentioned in the film, and in a lot more detail in the book, that she lost her left eye after being raped at knifepoint by her stepfather age 12, and I thought it was pretty unrealistic that her face would go 100% unscathed aside from this. She also looks a lot more rock n' roll than she did in the film (for some reason, I always imagined her in double denim and a Motorhead shirt) and I gave her a nosering for the crack. I kept her pretty much based on Joan Jett, but again, tweaked her face a bit to make her more like the book character. I actually loved how this turned out - I haven't drawn with a pen outline in ages because I hated the way it made so much of my stuff lose its detail, but I figured that the secret to stopping that from happening is patience and a finer pen ;)

Hey Prosper! :D What's up?

Anyway, you still like creepy stuff, don't you? I know you're not really a gamer, but I found this video yesterday and thought you'd like it: m.youtube.com/watch?v=-8FN29sH… Sleep is overrated anyway...

I got a Twitter account purely so I could stalk the release - do you really think it'd slip by me? :iconlottieplz:

A-fuckin-men :drool: It suits him so well, and I'm so glad he's acting his age - heaven knows I thought he would return to the days of prancing about stark bollock naked save for boots and a g-string and doing drugs in a limo with Trent Reznor, which is not too great for a borderline overweight 4-something with a history of drug problems and Hitler's haircut

That awkward moment when I realise that I'd never faved 99.9% of your Hunger Games fan art... :hmm:

I honestly do not know why I didn't until now - I guess I wasn't as in to it as you are, and I'm still not, but at least I understand it better now. :-)
