I’m back, with Arang and the Magistrate! It’s such a wacky show, and I can’t get enough of it. If someone explained the story to me I’d probably think that person was crazy, but somehow AatM works, and it works very well.
This post doesn’t have an episode in the title because it’s not really supposed to be based on any one episode. That’s right folks…I was slightly creative for once and didn’t just copy a screenshot! Am I happy with the results? I’m not sure yet.
It’s a miracle; I started new drawings! Not that I was short on inspiration, because this is one pretty drama. Each episode probably has around 20 images that I would happily paint, and that’s if I’m picky. Continue reading
It’s sort of ironic that I decided to do some “quick” sketches a couple months ago since I was short on time, and didn’t end up finishing them until now. Continue reading
This episode is a bit of a heartbreaker, so consider yourself warned (and blame Park Ki Woong!). There’s lots of Jae Yi, Eun Bi and AD Jang goodness too, so this episode really has something for everyone.
Do you know that song, “It’s All About Us”? Sing that, but replace “us” with “Jin” (that’s literally what I did while inserting screenshots). This was my favorite episode in a while because it changed things up from fairly frivolous angst to something much more serious and meaningful. I think we’ve all been waiting for this episode for a long time (we knew it was coming) and it didn’t disappoint me.
I’ve watched so many dramas this year that it only seemed right to summarize my opinions of them (not to mention organize my thoughts for the sake of my own sanity). It’s been a pretty solid year, with plenty of pleasant surprises, and I hope that 2012 can offer up as much enjoyment. Posts like this have been a huge help to me in the past when I didn’t know what to watch, so hopefully mine will help someone too.
The phaaaaantom of the opera is there…inside my mind (cue epic organ music).
Usually I avoid drawing minor characters since I don’t think anyone will care, but how could I resist such a dramatic shot? I’m not sure that a molded shimmering mask is historically accurate, but I thought it would be fun to draw. Also, this guy is a bit girly looking, which probably means he has a cult following. This one’s for you, cult following!
Often when I’m watching dramas that involve seven-way love “triangles” I think to myself that seven just isn’t enough. Thankfully the writers for The Musical were sagely enough to realize their woeful error and chose to add an 8th person to the mix. I’m not sure what we would’ve done otherwise.
In all seriousness though, I’m a huge fan of the new character and her scenes were some of my favorite this episode. Eight is an even number which means that everyone could end up happy, but I’m not getting my hopes up, lest they be dashed. Continue reading
Shoes that don’t fit. Doesn’t it seem like every character in this drama is trying to put one of those on?
I’m sorry not to post proper recaps but I’m so far behind at this point that I’m just dying to open up discussion of these episodes! So please, discuss!
