#MurderMystery is a light #comedy #movie where a couple of new Yorkers #travel for a “very” late honey moon to - #Europe and there they got involved in killing series. Locations were so beautiful of course between the southern part of #France all the way to #Italia along with the Mediterranean amazing blue water. The #fashion was above and over the standards. #Music was acceptable for such light action comedy, nothing #crazy about it. I felt that #Scenario was written to suit Adam Sandler’s appetite. You feel every character was talking to Adam some how. Almost Each sentence said by any of the #cast was followed by Adam’s. The #camera man did most of the job I believe, the wide angle and the brightness of the #HD gives advantage to keep the audience occupied.
#Makeup was a disaster, toooooo muchhhhhh!
The Cast did below acceptable job #jenniferAniston was more engaged and did more effort than #AdamSandler as he did exactly what everyone was expected from him nothing more, shouting, being silly, and of course last seen with everyone to end the movie!!!
The rest of them were below average especially #adeelakhtar what a disaster performance by this champ!
I recommend this one if you don’t have anything else to do in a rainy day! 5/10

2019 Player Breakdown
OJ Howard ---------------------------------- So the tight end position is lead by the 3 top dogs, Kelce, Kittle, Ertz but after that it gets a little jumbled together. Oj Howard currently has an ADP around the 5th round. He has everything you look for in a Tight End, size, athleticism, great hands but the one knock is health and injury concerns. Last season he hit the injured reserve for foot and ankle injuries, only started 8 games. He had 34 receptions, 565 yards and 5 touchdowns, not to bad for 8 games. If Howard can put together a 16 game season I truly think he can be up there with the big 3. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers lost Adam Humphries and DeSean Jackson, and for many reasons I love Mike Evans, I like OJ Howard. ---------------------------------- 2019, I see OJ Howard overcoming the injury concerns. I think he will finish as a top 5 Tight End. He is going to see a ton of targets and redzone looks. If you miss out on the top 3, target Howard. He will not disappoint, and if you are still worried about injuries you can target a guy like Vance McDonald in later rounds. --‐-------------------------------- 2019 projected stats
I hardly ever pull the trigger on a Tight End early, so i typically miss out on the top 3. I typically target guys like Howard, who have huge upside!
Comment below and let me know if you agree/disagree with the breakdown of OJ Howard

This is a good example of the artistic process in action.
The first image is a drawing which I was initially quite pleased with. The pencil sketch was coming along nicely, and the pose was rather decent considering that i hadn't used a reference. However, when I added some color, i became unhappy with how I had drawn the armor. Everything was too blue, the ice spike barely stood out. Worst of all, I had resorted to the age-old artist trick of hiding the feet behind a bush to hide the fact that I couldn't draw the legs in the right way.
This leads to the second image. A few days before addibg color, I had gotten these posable figurines to help me with my poses and human proportions. Just for fun, I placed the male figure in a pose similar to the first image. At the time, I wasn't yet disatisfied with the drawing. But this morning, I looked at my half-finished piece of work and thought "I can do better." This brings us to the final drawing. The pose, proportions and, to a certain degree, the lighting was drawn according to the figurine. The drawing was also slightly bigger than the previous attempt, which gave me the confidence to trace the lines in pen without screwing up the details. I went for a different look for the magic, opting for the more difficult transparency effect rather than leaving the cloud opaque. When rendering the colors, I also mixed in some mechanical pencil to give the silver a more metallic look, and to darken the fur and blue cloth. The colors look more complex as a result. The wings remain the weakest link; I can't for the life of me draw realustic feather patterns yet. It's right up there on my list of things to learn, next to chainmail textures and proper backgrounds.
