Fan Art Fridays: Nakia from ‘Black Panther’

The day that fans of the Marvel Universe have been waiting for is finally here! Black Panther is officially in theaters today, guys!

I am totally going to see it when the theater clears out of all the people that cannot wait to see it this weekend. Trying to be patient until the end of February is going to be hard, but I’m gonna do it.

I’m most excited to see Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia in the film. I found this really cool fan art of Nakia on Deviant Art while looking for something to feature on this week’s Fan Art Fridays.

Created by Cara Stratton (Erynnia on Deviant Art), the fan art is inspired by this photo of Nakia and Shuri (played by Letitia Wright). I love how Lupita Nyongo’s cheekbones shine through. Contour. On. Fleek.

Fan Art Fridays: ‘Fifty Shades Freed’

The last installment of the Fifty Shades series came out in theaters this weekend, basically revving up everyone’s Valentine’s Day yet again.

Although I haven’t seen any of the movies yet, I have read the trilogy and fully intend to read Grey: Fifty Shades of Grey As Told by Christian sometime this year.

I’m pretty sure the film adaptation is very racy (it would be a waste if it weren’t, right?) and I kind of don’t want to watch them alone so I’m still waiting for the perfect moment to watch them.

Zipcy, an illustrator I recently found on Instagram posted some fan art of the film this morning, so I couldn’t resist featuring it on this week’s Fan Art Fridays. Inspired by the official movie poster for Fifty Shades Freed, the fan art features Ana and Christian Grey getting ready to do something hella raunchy!

I love how Zipcy turned this black and white grey poster into full color. It totally gives the image life, especially with the added the flowers in the right corner.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Gal Gadot @ Critics’ Choice Awards 2018

Gal Gadot, red carpet fashion Critics Choice Awards 2018

Awards season is really turning out to be stellar this year.

Wonder Woman Gal Gadot appeared on the red blue carpet for the Critics’ Choice Awards 2018 wearing a gorgeous metallic gray pleated Prada dress. The dress features a plunging neckline and a cute boho accent along the waist.

The Israeli actress took home the #SeeHer Award at the ceremony in Santa Monica, California. Her speech was quite inspiring.

Fan Art Fridays: Madea

Boo 2! A Madea Halloween is out in theaters today, for those of you who’d rather leave the cinema laughing instead of fearing nightmares this Halloween.

I really did not expect Tyler Perry to create a second Halloween-themed Madea film. Not that I didn’t like the first one, but this doesn’t seem to be a direct continuation of the 2016 film. I’ll still probably watch it when it arrives n DVD though.

I was quite young when Madea became a household name. My Godmother gave my mom one of Tyler Perry’s stage plays ages ago. It’s insane how far Madea’s craziness has gotten on the big screen.

For this week’s Fan Art Fridays, we celebrate everything that is Madea with this cartoon by M. Rasheed. It featured Madea and her many faces.

I’m not sure what possessed Tyler Perry to allow Madea to legally own a gun. I would not be caught dead near her while that thing was loaded.

Fan Art Fridays: RIP Sir Roger Moore

Even though Pierce Brosnan will always be my favorite James Bond, I am deeply saddened that we lost our 1973 Bond, Sir Roger Moore, this week.

Cancer SUCKS!

In remembrance, this week’s Fan Art Friday’s goes out to Sir Moore. Enjoy this sketch of the actor as James Bond by Patricio Carbajal, also known as Pat. I can’t get over how perfect the hair is in this rough sketch!

Fan Art Fridays: Happy Birthday, Penelope Cruz!

Spanish gem Penelope Cruz is 43 today!

I guess she’s turning out to be one of those lucky people that age gracefully.

I’ve never watched any of her Spanish films, but I have seen her in Woody Allen’s To Rome With Love and Vicky Cristina Barcelona, both in which she played very bold characters. Her performance always grabs your attention, and I think she’s really great at making characters that would otherwise seem unrelatable have somewhat of a likeability factor.

In celebration of Penelope Cruz’s birthday today, I’ve decided to feature this piece of digital fan art by Barry Weatherley over at artbybaz.com for this week’s Fan Art Fridays. That look on her face, man—I wonder how her husband Javier Bardem handles all of that hotness on a daily basis!

See the original fan art on artbybaz.com.

Fan Art Fridays: Meryl Streep

Meryl Streep won the DeMille Award at the Golden Globes this year, and boy, was that one hell of an acceptance speech or what?!

I’ve loved Meryl in basically every movie I’ve seen her in, from Doubt to It’s Complicated. She’s timeless, and gives life to every character she plays.

In honor of her achievement, I’ve decided to feature this fan art of her from DeviantArt by Miko2660. She looks quite young in this piece of fan art, perhaps from the late ’70s. It was created using ArtStuido.

I love how she’s looking up in the piece, as if she’s in a state of utter bliss. Her hair also looks so wispy!
