Ketchup: PopMusik: Luke Cage, by Josh Lynch

Okay, in all fairness I drew this a few years ago so I shouldn't be posting it.  But it fit the criteria and I started to do a newer one but I've been handling some other stuff and so I didn't have time to really do a new one. Sorry I'm a terrible person.

Ketchup: Minions of Apocalyps: Kalibak by Mark Hurst

So with some downtime and it being a "Ketchup" week I figured I'd do the Minions of Apocalypse since I really really wanted to draw Kalibak. Here he be, and I have to say was actually a lot of fun to draw. Kalibak always reminded me of something like the bastard child of a troll and werewolf or something with his huge head of hair/fur. Kind of want to do more of him but set it up a long the lines of a happy go lucky guy skipping through flowers or something... not sure why?

PopMusik; "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders (as Alien)" by Josh Purple


It's a fast rough draft, but it was the idea that I wanted to get across  (plenty I could fix / finish).
Since Ziggy Stardust was an alien (well, he's the human manifestation of an alien)  I picked ...  :)  .   Forgive me Rich if you were thinking of us doing a take on 'Tonight.'  I was guessing that picking any Bowie album cover would work.  To be more accurate I should have picked E.T. with a guitar, -since Ziggy's message was peace and love ( with just a little bit of sex and drugs mixed in :D ).  "The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders" was 1972, and Alien was 1979 (I think), again a near miss, but why not give the legend a violent twist into the future, -Bowie was certainly ahead of his time.  Maybe the alien needs purple boots and red hair :) .
Thank You Rich, -excellent theme!

PopMusik: RollingVenom by Mark Hurst

So just went through a bunch of album covers and well this Rolling Stones cover is pretty recognizable and when I saw it I immediately thought of Venom and how his tongue is always all over the place. Awesome choice Rich, had tons of ideas I still want to do because of this.

PopMusik: Spock by Rich Flood

Theres a famous quote by John Lennon saying that when he made ‘Double Fantasy’ he wanted to "do something as good as 'Heroes'”

PopMusik: Lion-O by Rich Flood

Coke was the big, new awesome in the seventies. Nobody really knew how badly it can fuck your priorities up until they were already pink-eyed dope wraiths, which is where Bowie found himself in the latter half of the decade.

Being inspired by the electronic music of the day, he moved out to Berlin to kick blow and reinvent the weirdness. The result was the ‘Berlin Trilogy’, three super experimental records that popped many a ear cherry to the art-rock sound. The first of which, 1977’s ‘Low’, was followed by ‘Heroes’ and ‘Lodger’.

These three albums directly influenced New Wave, Industrial and Post Punk (or early alternative, depending on your labeling). If you came up musically in the late eighties-early nineties, you can hear the provenance of everything you thought was cool here.

Game Night: DuckTales by Rich Flood

My uncle’s mentally disabled.

He’s got size 16 shoes and probably weighs like 250 pounds and used to have a nasty fucking temper. When my cousins and I were really young, (not babies, but still pretty little) he would chase us down, trample us then grab our heads and shake the shit out of us until an adult would call him off. Suffice to say we were scared shitless of him and wouldn’t try and provoke him, except that he had a room absolutely full of cartoons and cool shit, which despite it being potentially life threatening, we tried to get into all the time.

I was in third or fourth grade this when this game came out. Now, my uncle had a shit load of NES games, including this one. I had already beaten it a few times, and – being a little older - was able to talk my way into his room and play this game with him. Later that developed into being able to come into his room to play a bunch of games, but he always liked watching me beat this one, either because I got to where I could beat it quickly without dying, or so he could shriek when you found Gizmoduck.

He still lets me into his room.

Game Night: FPS by Mark Hurst

So for some reason this isn't what I had in mind when I decided on Game Night... but this is what popped into my head and what I went with. Maybe at some point I'll post my other sketch with the JLA Poker Night.

Game Night

Decided to try a minimalistic approach to this week's theme. Enjoy.

Game Night, "Call of Cthulhu." By Josh Purple

I'm guessing most of you guys have heard of that game :) .  I've always been a fan of Cthulhu art, and I plan on animating this.  Custom work, made this in 3dsMax 2012, rendered in iRay 2.0, rigged, skinned, UV'd, textured, etc.  A screen shot from Max;

The small boxes along the tentacles = the rigging.  One photometric light is out of frame, -the back light.  The bottom light is visible.  Created some darkness depth using a Z-depth pass (tentacles going into darkness).  It's not a 'classic' Cthulhu god, more of a variation inspired by other lovely, creepy skull, tentacle Cthulhu works.

Tim Burton: 'Batman Returns' by Mike McMahon

Hey guys, sorry I've been MIA the last few weeks, it's been a hectic month. And I'm also in NY right now for vacation so haven't gotten as much artwork done as I thought I would.

Anyway, I plan on catching up on the themes I've missed and to start off, here's a quick drawing of Batman & Catwoman from Burton's 'Batman Returns'

Tim Burton: Marla Scissorfingers by Rob ayotte

I am aware that Tim Burton didn't do Fight Club. I'd like to thank my buddy Caleb for assisting me with the idea. Take Care!

Tim Burton: does Spidy By: Mark Hurst

So I really had no idea what I wanted to do for this weeks theme. I started to do a goofy sketch of Spidy and thought how weird it would have been for Tim Burton would have got a crack at doing it. So I added a half ass drawing of Burton, badly I might add. But here it is anyway. Enjoy.

Tim Burton: Mars Attacks, by Eric Schuster

I admire Tim Burton for being prolific and getting to pretty much run down a checklist of dream projects.  I'm not a fan of most of his work, but I really loved Ed Wood, Pee-Wee's Big Adventure, and of course the giant ball of crazy that was MARS ATTACKS.  Mars Attacks was awesome.  Growing up I was unaware of the gruesome series of trading cards that the movie was based on...apparently the work of comic book supergenius Wally Wood.
