me Older and Far Away

Geeky girl Graphic Designer and illustrator. I have two cats, a repetitive stress injury, and an anxiety disorder. My blog is a disordered pile of fandom, art, science, feminism, activism, lame humor and anything else that strikes my fancy. I am very very old in tumblr years. I have it on good authority that I am "comparatively delightful".
SHE KNOWS IT’S A MULTIPASS, SHERLOCK.
My entry for this month’s Let’s Draw Sherlock: putting the characters in a favorite scene from a movie or show is, of course, the infamous “Leeloo Dallas. Multipass.” scene from The Fifth Element. 
If you haven’t seen The Fifth Element, well…first of all go watch it right away because it’s great and has Bruce Willis and Milla Jovovitch and flying cars and Gary Oldman and colorful future dystopias and so many great things just…watch it. 
Basically, the movie is about how “Leeloo” (Jovovitch), a kind of superhuman sworn to protect the earth from evil, gets about 99% blown up BY evil and is then reconstructed from scraps of DNA, escapes the science lab where they built her and, all shiny and new ans still regaining her cognition, falls through the roof of a flying taxi piloted by Corbin Dallas (Willis), and how then they go on the run from a well-meaning but misguided government and also big evil, in order to find the thing she needs to save the world. Since she hasn’t been around people for a while, her social skills are a little…unique. 
There are…a number of things that didn’t work quite how I wanted them to, and then I did a lot of redrawing and eventually returning to the original design because it was better than the rework and a lot of this was on airplanes and always ended up being while we were going through turbulence. Like…the style and faces over all…I’m not entirely happy with. So…it’s not everything I wanted it to be. But…I think it came out better than I thought it would about halfway through, so that’s something.
