#well. first of all. this is so. bittersweet #like screaming and crying and throwing up on the floor etc #second of all. maybe i'm looking too much into this but. #it's interesting to see that there's blood splatters on tenzo's face /and/ his mask #if i recall correctly. the mask covers his happuri as well #the implication that tenzo lost his mask during battle. put it back on presumably /still/ in battle. continued killing #idk. just hurts #like something something anbu work forces him to feel more comfortable wearing a mask and conforming to a nameless org and set of ideals#and forgoing individuality #or like. something something maybe he feels worse that his face got 'stained' because it's basically a reminder that 'cat' and 'tenzo' #are one and the same and not two distinct entities no matter how much he wants to separate his identity and his anbu lifestyle #and the fact that the happuri is blank and doesn't have a konoha leaf on it.... he doesn't feel connected to the community even as he kills #for it... #i feel like it's kind of obvious that it's significant that the comic shows tenzo taking off his mask as he shows his weariness/depression #regarding anbu work and then how he thinks about kakashi as a jonin sensei. like representing himself as tenzo the individual rather than#'cat' a faceless tool of konoha in the shadows #i also feel like it's kind of noteworthy that the perspective(? is that what it's called for images?) zooms in on tenzo's face #first panel is mostly black and tenzo's body is off-center(?). like his face is centered but his body's not. and that leaves more room for #the black background. but the second panel fills it up with the kakashi thought bubble and tenzo's body comes into the center to fill up #the bottom half. and then the third panel makes tenzo himself fill up more space. there's less 'darkness' now #not sure how to say it other than. his sole saving grace in anbu at the moment is preserving his self and bond with kakashi ig #i also like how the black background isn't pure black. there's a tinge of red(? idk it could also be orange? but i'm taking it as red) #like one hand. maybe a reference to the whole blood thing. a reflection of how he feels surrounded by that reminder of murder instead #of just it being select patches on his skin #on the other hand (and this might be looking too deep 😔) maybe how allusion to the sharingan. how even though he left root #anbu still feels very similar to it that he feels reminded of how he was watched by danzo? #sorry for rambling. i am in an analysing mood today #but i'm also not that great at analysing visual art lmao
nooo no sorries! this is really useful and EXTREMELY flattering to receive such detailed thoughts, i feel like im back in a School Crit Circle or something, which is really fun and helpful. Critique like this rlly helps me understand what people are bringing to my art when I make it and how it's getting interpreted, which as somebody who wants to tell understandable stories via images, is useful to me beyond what words can describe!
like—there's no "right" or "wrong" when it comes to interpreting art, there is my intention, but my intention isn't necessarily what comes out (like how kishimoto somehow accidentally wrote two teenagers who he meant for us to perceive as straight, in the pains and throes of love for each other. like he wrote that, whether or not he intended to. i dont even actually ship s/n bc it doesn't have The One Ingredient for me, but its...also something thats hard to ignore about the text)
and similarly, since theres no way to objectively read a text, when you read it you're putting it in your own context, finishing the painting yourself with whatever colors you've got in your palette to use
that said! I can answer for my intentions in some of these
The blood and the mask: Practically, you're 100% right! Mask needs to be off to get at the happuri. That he's got blood on both his mask, and his happuri, means that at some point in the battle, he lost his mask and then put it on. In terms of art, I did this because the juxaposition contrast between the blood and the small amount of joy he's taking in thinking about a scarecrow, felt really important, and I didn't want to lose that with the removal of the mask. I also put the blood splatter in the same place, coming in from Tenzō's left, and splattering upward across his forehead area. Practically, this would mean that he was in the same position by a spatter of blood twice, but symbolically this implies that he is or feels like the same with or without the mask—like u talk about them being the same entity. I didn't really do that intentionally though—like I didn't think about it. I just kinda was like "yea that feels right. anyway moving on."
No leaf on the happuri: I AGREE WITH YOU ABT THE SYMBOLISM...he doesnt feel connected to konoha in a Real way until he's co-captaining, I think. He needs to be allowed to LIVE in Konoha to be a part of it... That said, if I'm not drawing Captain Yamato Post-Sunlight-Exposure I straight up forget that he had the leaf at all–I know it's supposed to be a Danzō thing, but I keep thinking it's an anbu thing. Honestly, since I agree with the symbolism, whether or not I forget or make an intentional choice not to depict it really doesn't matter I suppose
The Zoom In: Kind of the same as the last! i felt in my heart that we had to zoom in...I didn't think about it in terms of ''lessening darkness'' although now that I've read you write that I like THAT reading much more—esp since so much of yamato's themes in canon seem to be about sunlight and darkness...there's an interesting reading of darkness lessening (because he takes up more space) without light gaining any footing (he's still, as always, situated in the dark) about like, the little things that one can do to manage their depression or a dark situation, even when they still aren't able to be fully FREE of it quite yet (if ever). I think, when I was thinking abt it, I was thinking about making Tenzō seem very small and alone in the first panel, and then even after thinking about Kakashi, he's not quite so small in the panel, even though he still remains alone. This being said, the darkness reading is much stronger than the loneliness reading, even though they go hand in hand, I much prefer your interpretation.
the red in the black: This is interesting!!!! I like your interpretations a lot...in terms of materials this is only black india ink, so there's no red actually in it, but in the photo I can see what you mean—the ink I'm using is shiny because the "matte" ink is twice the price of it and I'm a cheapskate, and it inevitably creates shines of color when scanned or photographed. Obviously though, the lack of intention or the material contrast doesn't mean you're wrong—I saw the colorful patches in the image and decided it was fine enough to post anyway, they're a piece of the art as it exists digitally! Open for critique and interpretation. I like the idea that the darkness is connected to the blood very much especially, because it is for Tenzō, isn't it?
anyway, ty v much for your analysis, i was incredibly flattered to receive it, and i think you're actually super good at it, in my opinion!
#yamswers#pax-thuban#my jutsu#plz dont take offense to me explaining critique in basic terms ahghdhghds i do it mostly bc i know theres people who follow me who#will be less familiar with what critique is...and tumblr is often a less than ideal teacher for the art of art critique#I think the best thing one can do when critiquing art is to actually engage as much as they can with what they see in front of them#the ''how does this make Me feel'' part of it i think is EXTREMELY helpful—but mostly as a jumping off point#you want to use that feeling like a scent hound i think...it can lead u to the area you need to look at and it can follow the scent so well#but the feeling itself isnt going to be able to explain why you feel that way or what about the art is working or isnt working—#—which is the point of Critique#and you are extremely good at looking at specific factors in the art and both elaborating on the feeling its giving you and why#i've definitely given people critiques where I get stuck with the dog—only saying how I'm feeling but nothing more substantial#''i smell something in this area. not sure what. definitely here tho''#ive also given crit where i just do not engage at all with the feelings and crit solely on analysis—which is good for like anatomy help#but limited in terms of an overall piece#ive definitely gotten feedback on my art which is 100% wholly based on the viewers own personal history + doesnt rlly engage with the#meaning or practical elements of the art in front of them#and in that case its just kind of ''okay! cool! im flattered that you have such a strong + personal connection to this piece!''#but in terms of crit i can't do much with that bc their crit was so personal to them—not less valid + not less important...but also#not something meant for me at all#like um. um. um. the song Man on the Moon by REM is really important to me...but not for anything in the song itself. just where i heard it#and who i heard it with. it doesnt make my connection to the song less meaningful...but its not something that would b useful 2 the band#SDGJDSHGKDSJGH SORRY NOW *I'M* RAMBLING#it was just exciting to see such a thorough critique. it reminded of college back when id get to pin my art to the wall and get absolutely#blasted to smithereens by my teachers and classmates. VERY fun. i miss that energy#i wholly recommend it to anyone who would be okay getting told their art came out wrong (bc it sometimes will)#idk. anyway this is an art blog but more than that its a blog about art#so its fun to talk about the mechanics and decision making sometimes

Christopher Lee: A Sinister Centenary - Number 17
Welcome to Christopher Lee: A Sinister Centenary! Over the course of May, I will be counting down My Top 31 Favorite Performances by my favorite actor, the late, great Sir Christopher Lee, in honor of his 100th Birthday. Although this fine actor left us a few years ago, his legacy endures, and this countdown is a tribute to said legacy! Today’s Subject, My 17th Favorite Christopher Lee Performance: Sir Henry Baskervilles, from The Hound of the Baskervilles (1959).
Tumblr media
Hammer’s “Hound of the Baskervilles” is one of my two favorite cinematic treatments of the famous Sherlock Holmes story. (The other is the Basil Rathbone version, which came out twenty years earlier in 1939.) Much like our earlier entry, the Mummy, you can very much see this film as something of a stepping stone in Sir Christopher’s career: he doesn’t play the bad guy here, he's not a monster of any kind. In fact, in a very rare turn for Lee – even for this point in his career – he is the romantic leading man. In the film, Lee actually plays Sherlock Holmes’ client: a young British earl who returns to his ancestral home in the middle of Dartmoor after the mysterious death of his uncle. The estate is supposedly haunted by a demonic hound, seekin to destroy the young Sir Henry’s life. I do want to say that it’s kind of funny this was the only Sherlock Holmes movie both Peter Cushing and Christopher Lee did together, as well as the first time either of them DID a Holmes related piece: Cushing would go on to play Holmes in a TV series and a TV film, while Lee would appear in two television films as the Great Detective, and as Mycroft Holmes in a theatrical release. Yet in their first and only outing together, Lee does not play Dr. Watson, nor even the villain of the story Holmes must conquer: he plays the victim, the guy Holmes and Watson have to save and assist. While this is probably one of history’s biggest missed opportunities (since Lee would have made a great Watson OR a great Professor Moriarty, in my opinion), I actually kind of like the fact that Lee’s role isn’t what you would have expected nowadays. The reason Sir Henry Baskerville ranks so high is because, both for the time and even since then, this was not a role you usually saw Lee play. And he plays it brilliantly: his Sir Henry is my favorite take on the character, without question. He brings authority to the part that other versions of Henry lack, but he still has the necessary vulnerability and romantic sensitivity other incarnations have, as well. With other takes on Sir Henry, they sort of fade into the background while Holmes and Watson get all the fun, so to speak. Not so with Christopher Lee: his commanding presence allows him to stand up strong in the cast, and he, Holmes, and Watson almost feel like a proper trio, rather than it being Holmes and Watson with Henry as “just” their client. You care about Lee’s character, and no scene he appears in turns out to be a bore. He is just as important as the detective and his sidekick. The only major reason why Sir Henry Baskerville DOESN’T make my Top 15 is simply this: while the part itself is fascinating for what it shows about Lee as an actor at the time, as well as just an actor in general, and he does somehow manage to keep a tight grip on his part and make it just as star-turning as Holmes and Watson…well, let’s face it: it’s still a Sherlock Holmes movie, and at the end of the day, Sir Henry Baskerville just won’t enrapture one as much as the people trying to save him. It’s a brilliant piece of acting in a grand Sherlock Holmes movie…but the film truly belongs to Peter Cushing and Andre Morell as the sleuth and his ally, not to Sir Henry. Again though, this does not make Sir Henry any less great in this movie, and Lee singlehandedly turns what could have been a fairly generic character into somebody you almost wish could have a film all to himself. Almost. There may not have been a Baskerville Curse…but there is a curse when you work with Sherlock Holmes, and it’s the same as when anyone works with children, animals, or puppets. If you know anything about showbiz, you know what I mean. :P We’re almost at the halfway point of the countdown! Tomorrow, I present my choice for Number 16!

no thoughts only the spin-off in my brain that focuses on team 8 and actually develops them as not only people but as a team and how they become extremely close friends and also explores what it means to be a tracking team and what missions that it would take them on and their importance within the shinobi world. also post-fourth war where team 8 re-adjust their main usage to search-and rescue when their tracking-and-assassination/capture [whatever the mission parameters are] are no longer as necessary to the village. when will i write this.

Flammulation [flæmjʊˈleɪʃən]: a small flame-shaped marking, especially those seen on some birds.
Sansa traced the pads of her fingers over her soulmark with wonder, as though it were the very first time she’d noticed its existence. 
With watery eyes she gazed back at Sandor, standing before her with a look of incredulity and fear, and she tentatively closed to gap before he could walk away.
Sansa lifted his left forearm and did the same to his skin as she did to hers and she swore she felt him shiver.
He looked so scared, but she’d never felt more at peace -- it was him, it was him all along.
The mark - their mark - was a pretty little sparrow with brown and copper feathers, the edges turning red as flames danced majestically around it.
All this time, they’d been together all along, together in that mark, and with that sense of overwhelming joy she reached up and pressed her lips to his.
