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.

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!

Fan Art Fridays: Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer has another movie coming out, and I’m super excited.

How am I supposed to wait until May for Snatched?! It seems so far away!

Anyway, I thought I’d share this sketch of Amy Schumer I found on Deviant Art by seanjo. She looks all perky and put together as opposed to the mess that goes down in the trailer for Snatched.

Fan Art Fridays: Spider-Man

The first official trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming is out, and of course, everyone is losing their cool.

I’m really excited that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) is in it (and Zendaya too!) , but I’m really missing Andrew Garfield 😥

Anyway, in celebration of the trailer, here’s some fan art I found of Spider-Man looking totes casual. He’s all, “nothing to see here, just a teenager in a hoodie.”

I can’t decipher the signature on the fan art, which is sad, because I’d love to give them a mention for credits!

See the trailer for Spider-Man: Homecoming below!

Fan Art Fridays: Lola Bunny

As if I needed another reminder as to how old I’m getting, Space Jam turned 20 this week.

How has it been 20 years already?!

In celebration, I’ve selected a piece of fan art I found on DeviantArt of Lola Bunny, the film’s sassiest character (in my opinion).

Called “Take It To the Hole,” Jessie J. Barboza (jbwarner) puts Lola Bunny in an underwater scene for his Underwater Babes of Toontown series. The expression on Lola Bunny’s face in the cartoon definitely makes this an intriguing piece of fan art. Why does she look so unimpressed while making this shot?

Fan Art Fridays: Natalie Portman

Today I found out that Natalie Portman is playing Jackie Kennedy in the new film coming in December called Jackie. 

And oh-em-gee did the clothing design and hair and makeup artists do an amazing job at transforming her! I can’t handle how amazing the resemblance is.

Needless to say, I might actually go see the film in theaters.

For this week’s Fan Art Fridays, I decided to feature the actress in pop art form. This fan art was done by Mr-FunnyFace on Deviant Art.
