What the Hell Are You Looking At?

I kid, I kid. 

I've let my blog linger for quite some time, and a lot of it was due to apathy towards art for a while since I still haven't found a job (oh, Christ! he's gonna talk about this shit again!). The other part was due to me working on again, off again on a little project I set before myself because it came to me in a dream. Well, not entirely...let me explain.

You know how sometimes your body jerks you awake just as you're about to fall asleep? Well, my brain tossed an idea and an image at me instead, and it made me giggle awake. Yes, you read that right...giggle. My brain tossed me a character mash-up that I couldn't just do one and be, no, this had to be a whole series that had to be released in its entirety. Why, you ask? I'll tell you even if you didn't ask...I had to release it as a completed series, because once the idea was out there, the characters keep flowing. 

Others will run with it, and I'm perfectly fine with that, but I just wanted to get my list of favorites out of the way first. So without further gilding of the lily, and with much adieu, I present to you my mash-up...Mutant Wars.

(A bigger pic can be viewed at my Deviant Art account here. )

Yes, a mash-up of Star Wars and Marvel Comics characters. Each character was drawn with pencil and ink, and then painted with watercolors and finished with markers. I scanned each one in and set them up on a digital background. All the shadows are part of the original pieces (ie. no digital painting done). 

Let me know what you think.
