Zentangle Practice and Movies

They’re not all zentangles but that doesn’t matter.

I like drawing stuff in little squares. Usually, I don’t like being boxed in, but these provide a nice small space to practice in or to sketch out ideas.

Who else is a Shameless fan?? I got the Showtime free trial so I didn’t have to wait for it to show up on Netflix. Well, I missed the cancel deadline by an hour, so I’m paying for a month But YAY they offered me another 30 days free after that.

So, I figured I’d watch some movies. And I love having movies on in the background while drawing.

Who else misses going to Hastings and looking around? I loved it. And I feel like I watched more movies back when I had to go rent them or buy them.

Quick movie review . . .

Becky – This has Kevin James playing a different type of character than I’m used to. It was ok. Kind of a B movie Home Alone story, cuz she creates traps and goes after the bad guys. I still have 25 minutes left. Doubt I’ll find out how it ends lol.

Dead Water – It’s alright, has Casper Van Dien. Another one with 25 minutes left. I don’t actually care how it ends, but I drew a little boat while watching it.

The Machinest – OMG this movie disturbed me as soon as I saw Christian Bale. He didn’t look like himself. He was a skeleton. I have 37 minutes left. I sorta wanna finish it but what’s the point? I’ve been disturbed enough lol.

Cold Brook – I picked it because it has Kim Coates from Sons of Anarchy and a guy who was on Prison Break. The reviews were positive but I got bored fast. 82 minutes left.

Don Jon – I didn’t actually draw during this one. It wasn’t too bad. And the ending wasn’t disappointing.

I guess it’s a good excuse to watch a bunch of movies but I think they help to inspire ideas. Especially, when you do more than just watch it. Pay attention to the lighting, the directing, and all the other parts of it.

So, what are your favorite movies to watch while you draw?
