:police: Before you enter this gallery, READ this note.

NOTE: please do not use or copy my pics without my permission. It would be fair to respect the original artists, if you give them some credits.

Also, read this "Frequently Asked Questions," please:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS</u>

Can I use your art?
No. I'm sorry, but as an original artist, I really don't want my pic to be use. If you want to do art, then you have to make it on your own. That's what real artists should do.

Can I watch you?
Yes, you can. It depends on you for the art style, fandoms, or others.

Can we be friends?
Okay, here's a word for you; I don't think asking people to be "friends" would work out. The best ways to make new friends are getting people to know them, or having good conversations with others.

Can I draw your characters?
Yes, you can. But before you draw my characters, you have to respect my copyrights or giving me credits. That's the respectful way for the original artists.
If you copy or steal my pic in your account or any websites: Facebook or Photobucket, I'll report you and/or have to block your account. So please, respect the copyright and the creators! Thank you.

Can I ask for a request/art trade?
Sorry, I don't take requests anymore. As for the art trades, I'll open it soon.
If I don't have much time to take art trades, then I suggest you to draw by yourself. Don't just say "But I can't draw!" to yourself because that's sounds like comparing to yourself. Just practice your drawing for yourself, no matter if it's good or bad. Remember; Art doesn't have to be perfect; there's no such thing as "perfect art."

Can I have your msn/yahoo/skype address?
No, I don't have any of those, and never will.

Hey there, guys. I know I should've review that last month, but due to that, let's just say I procrastinate it. So, I'm going to review it right now;

Well, I saw Tim Burton's new film, "Big Eyes," last month (and few days after Christmas), and this has to be my fourth Burton film to see in theatre since my first one was "Alice in Wonderland." Also, this was the second film for both being a documentary film since "Ed Wood" and a film that involves a female character as a main protagonist since "Alice in Wonderland."

 And I have to say what I think of this film. It was....


AWESOME! :iconbouncyhai: I mean, this has to be a strong documentary film, and I haven't seen any type of Burton film before. The theme was about honesty, and how telling a truth can set you free. Why? Because I analyze that if you keep lying for the rest of your life, then you will be a servant (or a slave) to dishonesty.

Also, the film represents how and why people prefer art by masculinity than femininity. That happened in the art movement of Surrealism back then because they prefer art by male artists, such as Dali and Miro, while awesome female artists, like Dorothea Tanning and Meret, were being underrated.

Now for the characters, but I'll stick with the main characters;

Margaret Keane - What can I say? Amy Adams did a good job on her role with Southern accent. From Tim Burton's filmography, we see that how the ladies were awesome that we can sympathize; Sally, Emily, Victoria Everglot, Kim Boggs, Ari, Lydia Deetz, Alice Kingsleigh, Victoria Winters/Maggie Evans, Angelique, Mrs. Lovett, Johanna, etc.... Now we can see how Tim Burton made us to focus on Margaret to sympathize her. Margaret is a tragic but a strong feminist, while she's a good mother... and an amazing artist. She was stuck doing her work, while letting her second husband taking her credit, in a secret studio that no one could see, like Rapunzel stuck in the tower. But unlike her husband, she wanted to tell the truth that she did the painting so she will have freedom.

Walter Keane - My gosh, even though he was a real person from true event, this guy peeved me. His lies makes me want to smack him. I mean, in the later film, he was such a lying schemer, while taking Margaret's credits. He even became worse when he tried to throw matches on his own wife and stepdaughter when he's drunk. D8 That's horrid, dude. Well, served him right what happened to him; he became penniless before he died.

As for the rest of the characters, I say they're good to go. ;)

To conclude that, I was very surprise that there's not enough fanarts of "Big Eyes" in DA. Just the style of Margaret Keane's because of that. But other than that, I read of the one of the people's blog that they had a mixed a feeling of this film. What's a big deal for that? What it because it's not Burtony enough?

This film shows the truth behind the paintings, and see who is the real artist. In fact, we haven't seen another documentary film about an artist since then. By the way, haven't people seen other films like "The Agony and Ecstasy" (Michelangelo), "Lust for Life" (Vincent Gogh), "Frida," and even "Pollock"? If you guys never heard of these artists before, or never look up on art history, then shame on you all (no offense).

If you look at these films that I mentioned, these artists shared how they were struggled themselves with frustrations. But other than that, their art express their emotions and evoke their personality. That's why these artists inspired us to do our art. Even Glen Keane, the animator, was inspired by both Michelangelo's and Rodin's works for the Beast Transformation (that's why Prince Adam looks like the David statue).

Also, what did I said earlier? It's good to see Mr. Burton did something different in his films. Like I mentioned before, the film can see the actual truth to see who is the real artist behind the "Big Eyes" paintings. I mean, when I came in the theatre to see this film, I saw most audience that are elderly to see this.

Furthermore, let me show you who quote:

“I think what Keane has done is terrific!  If it were bad, so many people wouldn’t like it.”  - Andy Warhol.

Yes, "the" Andy Warhol. One of the forefathers of Pop Art movement. I kidd you not. It mentioned it in the beginning of the film.

Even though there might be some changes in this film from the true story, I say this is a great film. Overall, I give this movie an A-. Go see this film.

Take care.
