That just screams for illustration doesn’t it?
Back when I was initially trying to feel out the character of Mr. Loves for Angel Lite’s “Winter’s Knight” I did up these sketches to get the hang of him. Things evolved and changed along the way, but this was my first pass at him.
So I was contacted by filmmaker Douglas Waltz at 3/4 Time Productions about doing some special FX for a web series he was producing. The idea was to create a bridge that was also a prison- streched aross the grand canyon. I took a couple diffrent passes at the bridge and finally created a model we both liked, then ran a few animations off of it.
Not sure whatever became of the project, but the trailer was spectacular.
I really liked the ideas behind this guy, but I asked my question a tad to late….
“Is he a robot or in armor?”
The answer came back that he was indeed in armor – I tend to think I leaned a little far to the robotic side here, but still, really like it – particularly the curvy techno look to it.
April Fool’s has become so much worse since the advent of the internet hasn’t it? I spent last year just goofing on people.
Well Last year, Cinema Wasteland resident A. Ghastlee Ghoul from the Wackadoo Wax radio show announced that his station was changing format from classic rock to all POLKA all day! I immediately whipped this little ditty up just to further add to the lunacy.
This is my last of the army men, and I needed him to be a tank. Big muscles and again, a very Roadblock look, but even moreso.
Okay, I’ll admit, this guy is straight up Dennis Quaid from G.I. Joe. It really is, but with a uniform tweaked to look more like some of the Image versions of Duke.
My friend Nick is a big Star Trek The Next Generation fan. So Last Year, we were noticing just how much Deadpool’s costume works with the TNG color scheme; I mean, Like ridiculously well. So I whipped up these quick sketches to capitalize on the insanity – eventually Josh, our resident Deadpool ended up making this look a reality.
The tough thing about Edge is that the Ninja has been done to death and it’s hard to make him a composite of the Mortal Kombat template and/or Shredder without tipping too far in either direction. The blades are still important though. I almost wonder if I didn’t put enough on- then I think of the way Shredder looked in the TMNT movie and realize less is more.
