Boulder Hideout by DanielleDucrest
Boulder Hideout
Sugar Loaf Park, Greers Ferry Lake, Arkansas

This was a little cluster of boulders on the bank of the lake, hidden by trees from a campsite. The shelf in the foreground is maybe ten feet across. In the background is Sugar Loaf Mountain, an island out in the lake.

After way too many months, here's another review of a piece of art available here on DeviantArt. I made a new year's resolution to post a review of artwork on my blog every week for 2014, and this is my first.

"Investigating" by Bestiolina

This is a three-panel comic that shows two Doctor Who characters in drawn form. They are identifiable as Amelia Pond and the Doctor, even without the dialogue that mentions their names. They are investigating a strange symbol on a wall. The symbol would be recognizable to Supernatural fans as an angel banishing symbol, but the pair in this strip have never seen it before, so they speculate what it might be. I think my favorite part about this strip is in the dialogue: that both of them are partly right and partly wrong. They're equals, just like they're portrayed on the show (no matter how often the Doctor tries to be the leader and give orders). In the strip, Amy thinks it's a satanic symbol and that it's painted in blood. She's right on the latter count and wrong on the former count. The Doctor thinks the symbol is an "emergency ejection system" painted in something other than blood, and he's only partly right. Both of them are fully in-character; the Doctor even licks the blood and promptly spits it out without any regard to where his companion is standing, which is normal for him.

Amy's at least half a foot shorter in this strip than the actress who plays her. And though, in the third panel, the lack of a background places greater emphasis on the action in the foreground, I'm not a fan of suddenly absent backgrounds after panels that included background details. Maybe I'd be happier if the negative space in the third panel was gray-yellow instead of light blue and therefore matching the other panels. I'm not sure, and it's a minor detail, anyway. Bestiolina did a great job drawing the Doctor's face--especially Matt Smith's cheekbones and hair. I also like the dialogue, as I already said. I also like the little visual clues that indicate they're in a dilapidated room, such as the tears in the wallpaper and the stains in the corners and at the base. This is a short, funny strip, and I have fewer criticisms for it and more compliments.
