SO. This is “El dios buho” by my buddy jmlfreeman … I’m always watching his work on dA and love his designs. This one is currently up for voting on threadless and I know how many of y’all love owls :3
we now return to your regularly scheduled blather about tron <3
have you noticed how often we see james with his chin up? (literal chin-ups, sometimes.) his head held high. his shoulders broad, not bowed. even when he’s out of his element, like that first conversation shepard has with him on the citadel, there’s a youthful wariness to him. young blood. always on his toes. a heavyweight who can still move like a lightweight, and pack one hell of a punch while he’s at it.
but shepard isn’t like that, not anymore. shepard’s coming from a different angle. shepard’s looking down from above, from experience. from heavy shadows and a lowered brow. it’s the difference between old dogs and young pups. between weight and weight. between what a soldier builds and what a hero carries.
so when james looks down, away—when he’s half shadow, looking every inch like the poster of a certain commander he knows too well now, from all these new angles, with all these new moves, with all these old scars—it’s like he gets it. (like it gets him.) some of that weight’s being passed on. literally, he’s carrying it, the most important person to shepard—shepard, who stays in london, when james is the one who wanted to go back there at the very beginning.
crazy how the more things stay the same, the more they change.
shepard gets some of james’s strength, and james can see how young he’s been. how foolish. how it’s all still there inside his chest. some dumb kid wanting to look up to somebody, and how that’s gotta be what he passes on to shepard, while shepard’s responsibility is what he takes in return. nothing’s created, nothing’s destroyed. it just shifts a little. the gravity. their balance.
james looks away. he turns that big bruised cheek. it’s not what you do in a fight ‘cause it’s more of a life lesson, learning to draw the line between the two. learning to hold the line. and he doesn’t know it, but he looks ready for the posters, only this is the private, not the public. version 1.0.
hard and sad. a real heavyweight.
they’re both sorry it had to be this way, you know?
but those are the breaks. (and what doesn’t break you makes you stronger, loco.)
NEW DRAWINGS BY ROBERT L. SCHULTZ
Wisconsin based artist, Robert Schultz
Known for his deliberate and exacting precision, Schultz pays painstaking attention to every composition detail, both overall and in the minutia of each fold of skin, hair, shadow, highlight and pattern. To Schultz, the body in and of itself is a work of art; his drawings serve to expose that intrinsic beauty.
Robert Schultz received his B.A and M.F.A. from the University of Wisconsin. Schultz is included in several public collections including the Art Institute of Chicago and The Arkansas Art Center.
Current exhibition in gallery printworks Chicago (September 7–October 13, 2012)
