With this inimitible stamp (seriously, no one’s broken the quantum puzzle that maintains its uniqueness) you know it’s… definitely weird, maybe dangerous. OK. Probably dangerous, unless you wrote the manual. Step clear 🤪!
Dimensional portals are a part-time party hobby.
We presume this is astonishing effort, and not some Pythonesque tilted camera work, but all we know is that The Prof survived this.
The Prof doesn’t speak German. Yet. That doesn’t stop him from experimenting wildly and badly.
A giant in the mind of very, very small beings, such as interdimensional travlers or shrink ray enthusiasts, The Prof looms with large jacket collars and an untameable head of hair. There’s really no distinction between bob and beard, and those eyebrows… such majesty.
It’s less scary when it looks like a vinyl sticker, I think.
I thought I’d posted the messy original, but I haven’t, so you can’t see how much cleaned up this is. It is though. Really. Much scarier.
Once just small, just lines on paper, now radiant with liminal power in an interstitial space! +10 Goth Points!
It’s like they’re fresh from the dryer! Maybe that ride is why they look so freaked out!
Check out this bad boy! He’s so smooooth now. And with a little bit of “looks liek he was arted in grease pen. So suitable for a walking oil can!
This section is about Doing Something with a sketch. Cleaning it up, adding color, what have you. You’ve seen this before in the collection, but never in these stunning, Fall colors! 👏😲
This is clearly a Victor. A long time ago I went to a gaming convention and used one of these to rout the opposition. It’s been one of my favorites since.
In a minute I’ll explain why I like this One Arm Is Just A Big Gun design so much.
This is the answer to “what if my shit was in Ultraman or Power Rangers?” eek.
This is a straight up Hachetman reference in homage to that amazing scene in the BattleTech novels where Kai Allard-Liao pilots one against the Jade Falcons in the Second Battle of Twycross.
Yeah, it also has that elongated head I like so much because of the “Aliens” xenomorphs.
Oh neural interface and protective device, I just can’t quit you.
I liked that helmet so much I drew it a couple more times.
If you’ve got GIANT MECHA, you need a PILOT. Those shoulder plates are hella dumb. I still like that helmet, which is also pretty dumb. But pretty anime.
Went a little hog-wild with the dots, there. Retroooooooo!
I was playing a lot of BattleTech at the time and one of the things I liked about that was that you could design your own builds. This is probably one of them.
I think of this thing as small, with the pilot’s pod somewhere in the chest, but it’s sure got a lot of stuff strapped to it which also belies being smol, to me. I will embrace the contradictions that probably no one else sees and hold them close to me in cherishment.
Those things on its back are supposed to be a flight system reminiscient of the Guges-D models from Appleseed. This, however, is a full-scale mecha, standing a couple of stories tall at least.
This was a direct follow on to Gigermech head with an eye to adding some sinister smoothness. Honestly, it kinda looks like a whale. 🤷♀️
Along with all the aforementioned influences in manga and anime, let’s toss in the xenomorphs from “Aliens”. What can I say, it works for me.
I was working on a silhouette? Sure.
I played a lot of BattleTech at one point, alongside reading manga and watching anime like Robotech and Appleseed and The Five Star Stories. It all shows, any time I draw Mecca.
They’re standing on a transparent flooring, I guess? I’ve always enjoyed the “dude? wtf, dude.” attitude they’re generating.
Let all creatures dance and rejoice in life so fleeting the stars turn and take no notice in their own eternal ballet
Daaaaaaaaang… a fluff can move. Or that’s a pose in front of a hair dryer.
The emotional tension is more palpable in this one. I’ve never liked that sound effect rendering.
I suppose it’s not a surprise they have eyes, since Willis did. They don’t show up much in my renderings.
Which direction this fluff is moving and with what emotional tension is left to the observer. What do you see?
At the time, I was very into Taekwondo and drawing these little fluffs. I will accept responsibility for the results.
We’ve all had this day. Here in July 2020, we’ve been having it since like early March 2020.
You might look like this too if you could survive this level of irradiation. Poor thing is positively glowing.
These fluff creatures were another phase. They are inspired by Willis as depicted on this cover of R.A. Heinlein’s Red Planet, so help me.
omigosh something with some symmetry kinda sorta enh if you squint maybe?
Bone stock standard version of this idea. But in green!!
It’s best we don’t dwell too much on what this resembles. Moving on…
Who’da thunk there would be like, a bunch of these variations on a theme. This is probably the simplest incarnation. Not the last! lol.
This is probably the primordial and perhaps ur-version of this form. It’s still not very interesting. Like I said, there are a lot of these.
Yep. Whole lot of this sort of thing. I was pretty fascinated with these forms for a while.
Impact betwixt the transmitters.
There are rather a lot of variations on this theme. Bear with me. Or, you know, scroll on brave web browser.
Crypt fashion at its absolute pinnacle of street cred.
I rather like this one. Fight me.
Elegant in its simplicity. Unremarkable in its everything.
…Looking back at the art generated during this time, I would think I was on a lot of drugs. But I wasn’t. At all. Anyway, have a thing.
I would pay careful attention if this was Teacher. Clear influences here of that one comic book I read a lot in middle school the name of which I’m totally spacing.
That is a seriously improbable hood. No other comment at this time.
Just some shaded spheres assembling into a humanoid shape. I’m sure it’s fine.
Just a teeeeny mysterious figure with some very obvious Sandman influences, as you do.
Again posting only because I don’t hate these fingers. And to be honest about my morbid tendencies.
Wow. If your pits stunk so hard that happened to your head, you’d yell too. But day-am, check his swole.
That is some reeeeeeeaaly translucent red “hair”.
I saved this one purely because I don’t hate this hand.
They look “monstrous” to us, but, hey, do we really have the moral high ground here? Let’s find a basis of common communication before we turn the Fighter lose.
It can be useful to try out some alternatives right on top of each other.
I started Taekwondo when I was ~15. I was pretty excited when this drawing was a self study. Also, faces and digits are f’-ing hard to draw.
Sometimes you start out with an idea and wind up somewhere else.
Yep. It’s just that visual pun. Tip your server. Here all week.
I wish I had a better capture of this one. The original might still be kicking around here somewhere, but then I’d have to look for it. Bah.
There was a rash of these radioactively happy dudes. At one point, I myself had a shirt just like that.
Apparently, this fuckin’ thing. Is red. And not a tomato.
I’ve never wanted a dog for a pet. This one is no exception, with its clear coffee addiction, notwithstanding the obvious attraction of it being an alien.
Clearly a Beetlejuice-influenced drawing.
This was probably drawn in the 1990’s, and I’d seen a few movies with similar things, probably. Whadyawant…
I’ve never done mushrooms, but I went through an artistic period - demonstrated by this representative example - of drawing a lot of them. … i unno.
What a piece of work, is whatever this being is. No hint of feature is revealed by unreflected light.
Like a lot of teenagers from the 1980’s, I went through a phase of mashing motocross helmets together with other kinds of helmets. I think we all blame Mad Max.
Just hangin’ out. Looking kinda sinister. Maybe directing traffic, rescue services, or swarms of killbots. 🤷♀️
It’s pronounced ‘TENT-ah-cleez’. Let’s assume it’s epically heroic. Why not.
Lots of limbs with lots of uses.
It’s made of … bubbles? Sure. Ceramic, or, something.
