Un garabato de Jhon Carter Y Dejah Thoris hecho en una tarde perezosa de domingo, (photoshop).
Hace poco vi el trailer de la proxima pelicula de de Disney basada en las novelas de Burroughs, y lo prmero que pense fue que estaba viendo la segunda parte de Prince of Persia... quiero decir, ¿Podria ser peor? Yo creo que no.
Tiene ese aspecto generico y mediocre tan popular hoy en dia, lo cual en una pelicula original es ya malo, pero cuando se estan basando en una franquicia con tanto y tanto material alucinante a sus espaldas, cagarla de esta forma me pone malo... En fin, me da igual si al final la pelicula es entretenida cuando marte nisiquiera es rojo. No sere yo quien pague por ir a ver ese truño...

A doodle featuring John Carter and Dejah Thoris painted in a lazy sunday afternoon, (photoshop).
I recently saw the trailer of the upcoming Disney´s adaptation of Burroughs´s novels, and at fitst I thought that I was watching the secuel of Prince of Perisa the movie... I mean, its like, how much worse could this be? And the answer is none.
It has that mediocre and generic look so popular today, which is pretty bad in a original movie, but in a movie based in a frachise with an awesome source material like this one, screwing it up like that makes me sick.
I don´t care if in the end the movie happens to be entertaining when not even Mars is red. I wont waste my money on wathcing that crap.

One of the most faithful renditions of E. R. Burrough's main protagonists I've seen!  Dejah is nude save ornate jewelry (like all martians are) & Carter actually looks like a grizzled civil war era mercenary on another world.  

Excellent job!

The only way to watch the movie is to have never read, or even heard of, the books.
Your Deviation is so much more faithful to the vision of the book. Thanks!

I enjoyed it, I don't get what the issue is with this adaptation. I've also read several of the John Carter stories so I have the source material to compare it to, before you tell me off! I thought it was fairly faihful and I loved the effects of the weapons and the vehicles. THey were advanced and and alien and familiar and old fashioned all at once. I liked the Thalls too.
Also, it turns out that the soil on Mars is copper, not red.....!

ese john si parece veterano de virginia. fue lo primero que pensé, luego cuando leí lo que escribiste, me doy cuenta que no somos pocos los decepcionados de tanta fanfarria que al final termina siendo un fiasco. supongo que es mejor para la gente que no tubo oportunidad de saber de donde salió realmente la historia (me pasa con frankenstein, aunque hay una peli que podria salvarse, me paso con el conan de ahora, con linterna verde y tantos otros que estropearán adaptando al cine. como las pelis de videojuegos, ojala nunca se haga metal gear) por que se permite ir al cine a no prestar atencion a lo que ve, no saber que ve, comer y hablar y salir histerico, por que se sobrestimulan con lo que sea. es trizte de un modo, pero al fin y al cabo es culpa de todos los que seguimos sustentando el cine adaptado desde otra plataforma.
bueno, lo que digo, si estoy diciendo algo, es que lo encontre tan genial y especifico para ser "garabato" que entre aplausos me acorde de la expresion de un conocido: "para tatuarselo en el cuello" =D

Pueees Metal Gear la pelicula ya esta anunciada, con Kojima y el infame Avi Arad a la producción, miedo me da :S
Si, no fuimos pocos los decepcionados con la peli de John Carter, ya que ha sido uno de los fracasos cinematograficos mas estrepitosos de la historia, y le costo el puesto al encargado del departamento de Diney que trabajo en ella. Si me hubiesen hecho caso se habrian ahorrado el chasco :D

Honestly I didn’t even know who John Carter was until the movie came out. I have since started reading the books and believe that you have really captured the two characters very well from the books descriptions. Thank you for sharing your work.

Lovely work . The movie was okay , but like you said it missed the mark on so many points .It's nice to know there are other fans of the books out there . I like that you have Dejah Thoris as red as she is suppose to be and of course no natives of Barsoom wear clothes . While the flying things in the movie were cool ERB clearly meant his to look like advanced airships/zeppelins .

Since the movie was one of the bigest failiures of Disney's history, and made them loose about $200million, I guess there are more fans of the books out there than Disney expected. Maybe the next time they try to make a movie of something as iconic as John Carter, they will think twice before raping the source material.

Dejah Thoris Roja por fin, tanta gente omite eso últimamente. Me encanta el trabajo con cadenas y adornos en ella y la espada de Carter. Bastante bien para ser un garabato.

... Me he visto la pelicula por mi hija. Basta decir que a ella le ha gustado bastante, y a mi me ha dejado un cierto vacio del que ni provoca opinar.

Bueno, Disney sabe a quien vende lo que vende... Lo cual me pareceria muy bien si no se metiesen con franquicias que requieren de una imagineria menos comercial y más imaginativa...

Wow this is perfect. Exactly how I imagined them. Dejah is supposed to have ideal form but otherwise not be human ie Martian. I mean she ends up laying a freaking egg according to cannon. JC is supposed to be a grizzly kind of guy, not a pretty boy. I can understand Disney not doing all the nudity given they do have to make a profit (so need wider audience), but they could have made the Martians red to be more interesting and sci-fi themed. Great work.

Disney are totally unable to do anything original or risky, they are just a bunch of money crunchers. I had faith on Pixar, but they totally drop the ball on this one, it looks extremely generic and boring, John Carter has a rich and amazing visual legacy, but they choose to ignore it... It´s really sad because there was a lot of talented people working on the movie :P
But anyway, Im glad you liked it, thanks.

Disney and other movie franchises have been screwing up story lines for the past decade. To be honest, i saw this coming. Just take a look at "Avatar: The Last Airbender" where they even made the Asians white.

A badass story like John Carter´s can´t be adapted by Disney´s money crunching suits. If it isn´t mediocre and generic, they are not interested at all.
