Fish on Toast

The daily create for September 3rd was to take a picture of toast and edit something into it. I was eating my toast this morning and watching TV when The Little Mermaid came on. Ariel is my favorite Disney princess so I immediately thought of making the piece of toast, now digesting in my belly, into my beloved Disney companion. After uploading the picture of the piece of toast I had already enjoyed I opened it in paint and started whiting out the background to start off with a clean slate. I drew the outline of Ariel’s marvelous bangs and the rest of her flowing locks and colored them in bright red. I then added the bow she wore in the “Kiss the Girl” scene from the movie and it was beginning to real look like her. I began on her mouth, which turned out alright, and then continued on to her nose. However, paint was done cooperating with me at that point and I just couldn’t get her nose nor her eyes to look right. So I decided to go back to the version that had just the hair and bow painted on and loved it. I don’t normally like fish on my toast but, in this case, I will make an exception. Here is how it turned out:

British Star Trek

The daily create for September 2nd was to pick a scene from a movie and add British slang into the scene. I decided I wanted to take a scene from Star Trek Into Darkness where Captain Kirk and Spock confront Khan to figure out who he is and why there were people hidden in 72 torpedoes. Have fun reading through my version of British Star Trek and see if you can find the slang I threw into it.

Kirk: “Why is there a man in that torpedo?”

Khan: “There are men and women in all those torpedoes, Captain. I put them there.”

Kirk: “Who the hell are you?”

Khan: “A remnant of a time long past. Genetically engineered to be superior, blinding so as to lead others to peace in a world at war. But we were condemned as criminals, forced into exile. For centuries we slept, hoping when we awoke, things would be different. But as a result of the destruction of Vulcan, your Starfleet began to aggressively search distant quadrants of space. My ship was found adrift. I alone was revived.”

Kirk: “I looked up ‘John Harrison.’ Until a year ago, he didn’t exist. I was gobsmacked. The name ‘John Harrison’ is a load of tosh, complete rubbish I tell you.”

Khan: “John Harrison was a fiction created the moment I was awoken by your Admiral Marcus to help him advance his cause. A smokescreen to conceal my true identity. My name is Khan.”

Kirk: “Why would a Starfleet Admiral ask a 300-year-old frozen man for help, mate?”

Khan: “Because I am better.”

Kirk: “Nice one, really. At what, wanker?”

Khan: “Everything. Alexander Marcus needed to respond to an uncivilized threat in a civilized time and for that he needed a warrior’s mind. My mind. To design weapons and warships.”

Spock: “You are suggesting the Admiral violated every regulation he vowed to uphold simply because he wanted to exploit your intellect.”

Khan: “He wanted to exploit my savagery. Intellect alone is useless in a fight, Mr. Spock. You… You can’t even break a rule. How would you be expected to break bone? Marcus used me to design weapons. To help him realize his vision of a militarized Starfleet. He sent you to use those weapons. To fire my torpedoes on an unsuspecting planet. And then he purposely crippled your ship in enemy space, leading to one inevitable outcome. The Klingons would come searching for whomever was responsible, and you would have no chance of escape. Marcus would finally have the war he talked about. The war he always wanted.”

Kirk: “Oh bollocks. No. No. I watched you open fire in a room full of unarmed Starfleet officers. You killed them in cold blood!”

Khan: “Marcus took my crew from me.”

Kirk: “You are a murderer!”

Khan: “He used my friends to control me. I tried to smuggle them to safety by concealing them in the very weapons I had designed, but I was discovered. I had no choice but to escape alone. And when I did, I had every reason to suspect that Marcus had killed every single one of the people I hold most dear. I was gutted, so I responded in kind. My crew is my family, Kirk. Is there anything you would not do for your family?”

Bloody Face Meets Rambo

The daily create for September 1st was to color a coloring book page or make it your own in some way. I didn’t know what I wanted to do at first so I began coloring the surrounding leaves and tree. While coloring I, eventually, decided to have Rambo’s body but wearing Bloody Face’s mask in order to make it my own. I ended up with this creepy, and actually kind of disturbing, image.
