Here’s another Heroine Headshot. This time, it’s Félicie Le Bras, the heroine from Ballerina (AKA Leap), a 2016 French-Canadian 3D animated film. Ballerina is a tale about a Victorian-era orphan who goes to Paris in an attempt to fulfil her dream of joining the prestigious Paris Opera as a dancer. I’ve been aware of Ballerina for quite a while, and I thought it looked like a fun film, but when I finally saw it for the first time a few days ago, I was quite impressed. It’s a beautifully animated film, and its art style and humour reminded me quite a lot of bande dessinées (i.e. Franco-Belgian comics, such as Asterix), which I’ve always been a fan of. It does have a few modern pop songs in it, which I found a bit jarring, but that is my one and only gripe. Overall, I thought it was a great film, and Félicie, who is a bundle of cheerful energy, is simply adorable.😊
Note: there seems to be a bit of confusion about Félicie’s family name, but since she is a French character, I chose to refer to her by the name she is given in the French version.
I’m having lots of fun playing the Resident Evil 3 remake by CAPCOM., staring my favourite game character of all time, Jill Valentine!😁
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.
The original drawing I did of Vignette Stonemoss (played by Cara Delevingne) from Carnival Row. which I used to produce the gag I posted a few minutes ago. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!😊
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!😊
