I started working on my Luna scarf again, and realized that the pattern I have saved on my computer is wrong. It's not an easy wrong, it repeated a row and one of them isn't complete and the other one seems incorrect. I can't locate any of my written out patterns nor can I find my already completed scarf. I have a feeling the version of the pattern I have saved on my computer is the same one that is in a private entry here on LJ. I knew I was still missing a box of crafting stuff. This last move was the worst one yet. I had to reuse so many boxes that not all of them got labeled correctly. My DH is incapable of reading when it comes to labels on boxes, so instead of my crafting and art supplies ending up in my studio, they are buried in the garage. I'm still finding random boxes full of clothing. Yesterday I found a box of ceramics that had been stuck in the middle of a stack of boxes.

The one good thing about having so many random boxes being unpacked, is that opening one is almost like Christmas. I keep finding things I didn't remember having. Unfortunately, I don't have places for some of this stuff so it just lays around and clutters up more space. :(

Edit to add, I think it's not as bad as I was thinking. It was the same in both places, but my lj entry had a better picture.

So I found a decent photo of Depp to draw, it's not as detailed as I would like, but since I'm working small it'll due. I've gotten so used to drawing just hair and wardrobe that I've managed to jack up his face twice. The last time I was doing so well until I was about to take a photo of it and realized that his face was too narrow and it just didn't look right. I had to erase half a day's work and now there is still a ghost of Jacked up Johnny on the page. Awesome.

I haven't started trying to correct any of it yet. Hopefully it won't be noticeable once I get more graphite on the page. I'm really not interested in starting over. I'm kind of sick of looking at Johnny's face and would like to work on something else for a while. I have a lovely drawing of Gina Torres I'd like to finish. I mostly just have some shading and hair to work on.

I want to get back to my painting of the alien queen too. I did an amazingly bad job on the angle of her head. I really wish I had a good action figure to use as reference. The movie is too dark for all the right shots. I watched a video of one of the action figures being described and it helped a bit, but it still didn't have the angle I needed.

One more down, one to go

Last night I finished drawing Johnny Depp's Barnabas Collins (you can see it on my Instagram, of the same username) and now I'm looking for a decent photo of Johnny as Johnny. It's a little harder than I first expected it to be. I don't want to pick a picture that's too young, because he's changed a lot over the years, but he's gained a lot of weight lately so I don't want to pick a very recent photo because it doesn't look like the Johnny Depp I'm familiar with. I think I found something that's more in the middle, but not too long ago. Of course for all that I know it's a ten year old photo.

Was anyone else shocked at seeing him lately? I don't want to give away what film it was, but he had a surprise role in one I saw not too long ago and my jaw dropped open. Not only was I surprised that he hadn't been mentioned at all, but he looks so different! For a moment I wasn't sure it was him. It was like seeing photos of Val Kilmer since he stopped acting. I get so used to seeing the same movies over and over and actors don't change or age, that when I actually see the real person and what time has done, it's always a surprise. Sometimes it's hard to remember that these are real people. I think that's what I like about going to comic conventions. So many actors are going to them now, that I've gotten to see them up close. Coming up in a few months Tim Curry is coming to Dallas for a convention. He's a good example of someone that time has not been kind too. I hope his health permits him to keep his plans intact for the con.

Anyway, today I'm going to start my last Johnny Depp drawing.

Why does he wear so many hats when off camera?


But I might knit instead. I'm so close to finishing my socks. I really want to crochet my skull curtain, but I have to finish those blasted socks first.
