Pixels Art Show

1174583_3419026091702_159712547_nI had one of the busiest weekends imaginable. Friday night I was at the taping for the Daughter of Ghoul show. You’ll see me playing guitar behind Janet Decay in their Halloween episode. The next day I had band practice for Church inĀ  the morning, the Lakewood Zombie walk in the afternoon ( to say nothing of the time spent getting made up in between the two), Heroclix at Comics Are Go! after that and the Shining over at the Lorain Palace in the evening (Which got cancelled! Booo!). Finally, on Sunday after Church I had a booth at the Pixels art show in Elyria. I set up the binder full of Violent Blue, along with the sample comics, my Novel and a few of the pop culture Bible studies I’ve done. there was also art that’s appeared on this site – something to catch the eye of passers by.

While at the booth, I also spent some time working on a pave for “Knight to Remember”, a series I’m doing for Angel Lite comics. I never seem to get any Violent Blue done at these things…. and really I find I don’t have much time for drawing when I’m at a show anyhow.

A quick apology for not promotingĀ  these events up here. It’s been such a busy week both at work and with events like these. We’ll explore the Zombie walk later this week, but for now, here are the photos from the art show!

Composite Superman!

 

Marvel ClixWay back on Saint Patrick Day, we Jessie ran a game over at Warzone where the characters had to either wear green as their primary costume or be irish. I watched the rules clarifications on Facebook and saw that green skin was okay.

scanI figured Everybody would be using Green Lantern, Green Arrow or the Hulk (I wasn’t wrong by the way) I wanted something different, so I pulled my Composite Superman.

This is one of those characters I grew up reading about in DC’s Who’s Who, and has really been my favorite figure out of the Superman set. I was always a little surprised at how well he plays. For 180 points, I suppose he’d better be a decent charater, but still, it’s always a surprise at how effective he can be, both with the shape change and more importantly a really deep dial, about nine clicks in all. It’s not just about satying power though, he even managed to take down a Hulk.

Hulk Smash

Also on the team were Quicksilver and Vision. Quicksilver was another really pleasant surprise with his arrogant attack – essentially hypersonic with flurry. I kept using him as a hit and run. He’s everything I could want from a Flash figure….except HE’S NOT THE FLASH!!!! Arrrgh!

I threw the Utility Belt on Vision. One of the first times I really came to appreciate it. The belt made the difference a few times on whether or not the attack succeeded. Still, it’s kind of funny to see Vision with the belt on when you’ve got Composite Superman who’s half-Batman in the first place! I’d almost think he had more right to it….even if Vision needed it more. I can kind of see that discussion going something like this :

trio words
