COMMmOOnNNN RIiiIIDA VEEE STHhREEEEE!!!!!!



This began as a drawing in my sketchbook, influenced by some old (1973) kids books with manga style illos of Kamen Rider. I brought it into Photoshop and ran some filters, to give it a bit more of a vintage look.

Hey Justino, cool motion blur, dude! I like how in the 23rd drawing your character shrank and his hieroglyphic scream grew!!! lol
You took a day off for this??? Damn, you shoulda posted more, then!

A comment from the great Jessiitttoo!?? Praise be to the gods!

Thanks, Jess...well, I didn't really take the day off of work to do this! It was done on a week night, mainly..just a few touch-ups and stuff before I posted it on Friday! I've got more on the way, with luck on my side!

As for the 23rd drawing in the monster series..yeh, I was thinking of just doing another monster, but thought different...wanted to change it up a bit...and the type was a fairly integral part of the previous 22, so it was only fitting as a conclusion to bring it to the forefront, so to speak.

that shit's cooler than Mr. Sparkle...
it's very proactive and it's a totally
outrageous paradigm....that guy's like
half Joe Camel and a third Fonzarelli....
the color's a neat pop too!

'that guy's like

Really nice! I like the effects you get in photoshop- you should do some more like this- and then do a comic book and get a table at the next MoCCA festival.

Dan! Thanks, man! I should, I should...I want to...!

The Keeper's Notes said...

PS I will! (do some more at least)...
