Coldplay Releases Making of Video for “Daddy” Music Video

This is a wonderful behind-the-scenes video for Coldplay’s “Daddy” music video, which I wrote about a few days ago. It answers the two main questions I had about the production. The first question was: how much actual puppetry was used for this project? And the answer is: quite a lot! The second question was: how big were the props? I was surprised to see that they were quite large, much bigger than I had imagined them to be. But then again, I’m not very familiar with this kind of animation.😅

Recommended Music Video: Coldplay’s “Daddy”

Just a couple of weeks ago, I had a discussion with someone about favourite music videos. I made the comment that I thought it’d be easy to come up with at least a top five list. And then I only managed to list four.😅 However, now I’ve found a music video that completes my list: Coldplay’s Daddy.

Featured Heroine: Deet

Deet (or to give her full name, Deethra) is one of two main heroines in The Dark Crystal: Age of Resistance (a TV show produced by Netflix which serves as a prequel to The Dark Crystal, a film from 1982). She is one of many small, elf-like creatures (with wings, in the case of females) that appear in Age of Resistance. Her lovely voice is provided by Nathalie Emmanuel and her cute puppet is operated by Beccy Henderson.

Tirnanoc’s Angriest Librarian (“Carnival Row” Gag)

This started off as just a rough sketch, which I decided to ink out. And then it occurred to me to make a gag with it. This gag features a character called Vignette Stonemoss (played by the lovely Cara Delevingne), from Amazon Prime’s original series titled Carnival Row. Carnival Row is dark fantasy set in an alternate Victorian-like world. It is visually stunning, with an impressive amount of effort put into world-building, but the plot is a little bit disappointing. The gag that I drew derives from the fact that although Vignette was once entrusted with protecting a library, she is hardly the librarian stereotype.😄

I’ll post the original textless illustration of Vignette shortly, so till then, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊

CAPCOM Releases Claire Redfield Biography Video!

CAPCOM just released this short biographical video about Claire Redfield, one of the chief protagonists of the Resident Evil video game franchise. I’m not exactly sure why they released this video, but it seems to be just a bit of a marketing boost for the Resident Evil 2 remake that was released at the start of this year. In any case, I think it’s a cool video. It has a spoiler warning at the beginning, but I didn’t think it divulged that much about the games Claire is in. For example, I myself have never played Resident Evil – Code: Veronica and the video didn’t really ruin anything for me.

Claire Redfield is a character I want to write a Featured Heroine post about in the future, but as I said above, I haven’t played Code: Veronica. So until I do, that post will unfortunately have to wait. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊

New Project: The Secret of the Star-shaped Scar

Yes, I still have to get back to working on Elycia, but I was recently inspired to start a new project, titled The Secret of the Star-shaped Scar (or Star-shaped Scar, for short). I’ve been working on the first part of this new project for the last few weeks and it’s just about done. So at the moment, it looks like I’ll be able to begin unleashing it some time next week.😄 “What is Star-shaped Scar about?”, you might ask. Well, I won’t reveal too much about it now, other than it will be a colour web comic. Anyway, stay tuned  if you are interested. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
