I was watching The Host today. It was an excellent movie.And I felt inspired to draw something monsterous. While my sketch of the creature from the movie was crap, I went through some production sketchs from In The Mouth Of Madness and drew some of those creatures.
I love Lovecraftian horror.
I guess the little guy in the corner there is a crude caricature of Ben Kingsley. Or Captain Picard. Or Charlie Brown, after the armageddon.
What can I say, I like girls with wires. An aborted sketch I only party felt like finishing. I should try this one over cause I think it could be really cool inked and colored. And better wire-placement. That one looks like it's coming right out her pooper. Actually the rest could be going straight in her vagina for all I know. Yeah, there's a reason I gave up on this sketch.
The dinosaur is from the comic I picked up: Xenozoic Tales. (Which I've been looking for, for about 15 years) Better known as Cadillacs & Dinosaurs. And the big spikey-thing is from Brotherhood of the Wolf. Kinda. I know I didn't get the details right.
The team is all here.From left to right: Toyotomi Yoshimoto: Cyber-samurai The Red Legion: Dupilicator Dr. Hero: Psychic M.D. Tease: Liquid metal chick Sparticus Hemingway: General superman dude Terrier: Part man, part greyhound, part terrier; all badass Holy Diver: Exiled comptroller of Atlantis Metal Lincoln: Armored dude
Team medic and subordinate to Ms. Tease. His exact powers are unclear. Far from being able to read minds, he only gets a general sense of malaise around evil. Other than a brief attempt at boxing in college he has no combat experience. He can, however, use his mind as an extenstion over his fists to inflict great damage and possesses super-human stamina and focus. That being said, he's really beter at saving lives than taking them.
Is that an arcology in the background? I think it is! It is! It is and arcology!So, Dr. Carpenter arrives in his new digs. But something seems amiss. Whatever happened to that stunning young woman who spirited him away? And why does his neck itch where she kissed him?
She's got feathered-back hair and stylish capris. And she might be the leader of an elite super-hero organization. She doesn't like to wear much when she's going into battle; but at the same time, doesn't want to look like a whore. And the things sticking out of her back grow into wings. Which, turn out to really be more of a style statement than a practical means of locomotion. She can only levitate, not fly. The pouches/utility belts have greanades, tools, electronics, any things she can't fabricate by morphing her body. Ala the T-1000. Anyways, I don't have a good name for her yet.
EDIT: I woke up with her name in mind. I'm thinking of calling her "The Tease" or just "Tease." Cause she can look like any woman she wants, but you can't have her. ;)
Watching Ed Norton play a neo-nazi. He gets anally raped in the shower by other neo-nazis. You can never trust the fuckin' Nazis. Sketches of the the goddamned Joker. From The Batman. I'm not really a fan of the series or the designs, but I do like highly stylized art and the exagerations that come with the goddamned Joker's facial expression. Like most sketch sessions, this one started off like crap with a terrible goddamn Batgirl picture. Then progressed to a clumsy Joker, and a slightly more refined Joker, then finally one I was happy with.
Trying to get the ol' idea wheel turning.Drawing Mehari in a realistic sitting position aint easy. I wanted a fine wroght-iron stool and a pile of guns behind her. More likely I'll end up with an easy chair. But of course, it will probably end up a ridiculously tall chair. Still, stack of guns and computers: all-night project there. Good times.
Nerdiest fuckin' kid in the A.V. club.I was looking through this blog and got to thinking about what our favorite decepticon, Soundwave, would look like if he were a fleshy human. And I'd feel kinda sad for him; at least while he was in high school. The two-tone pants and shirt were bad enough, but the hair just screams "beat me." Maybe Megatron and the other decepticons were the guys who got picked on at Cybertron High. Like Megatron was the president of the ROTC and he was constantly at odds against Optimus Prime on the student council. (Optimus Prime won the ASB presidential election).
The more I talk this out, the more I think it would make an awesome comic.
He has all the powers of history's greatest gladiators and greatest authors. I was thinking up comic hero ideas in relation to people I actually know. This one came from an English major obsessed with ancient Rome. It's actually pretty uninspired in terms of design. I ment for it to be more flamboyant. I guess I'll have to re-work the costume and make his build bulkier. Maybe add a sword. I've been watching and re-watching Iron Man. I think a powered suit may be next on the menu.
