SPICE FORCE 5


FINALLY, MY 6th SET OF SPICE GIRLS PAPER DOLLS: THE SPICE FORCE 5! THE FAB FIVE WORE THESE SILVER LAME' COSTUMES WHILE PLAYING A FAUX SUPER-HERO TEAM IN THE SPICE WORLD MOVIE, IN 1997. 

THIS SET HAS BEEN A LONG TIME COMING, BUT I'VE BEEN REALLY BUSY. I'VE GOT A FEW MORE SERIES SKETCHED OUT, SO HOPEFULLY IT WON'T BE TOO LONG A WAIT BEFORE I HAVE ANOTHER SET FOR YA'LL. 

AND NO, I DIDN'T FORGET TO PUT THE ROUND TEAM PATCH ON GERI. SHE HAS TWO TEAM PATCHES ON HER BUTT!

ROCKET RACOON TO THE RESCUE




AND FINALLY WE HAVE THE REAL STAR OF THE SHOW, ROCKET RACCOON! THE FACT THAT MARVEL AND THE POWERS THAT BE SAW FIT TO PUT THE WORLD'S MOST BAD-ASS RACCOON CREATURE THING IN A BLOCKBUSTER SUMMER MOVIE IS MAYBE THE BEST PART OF THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY FILM. AT FIRST I THOUGHT HAVING HIM VOICED BY BRADLY COOPER WAS A MISTAKE, BUT WHEN I SAW THE FILM I THOUGHT HE DID A GREAT JOB. I REALLY DON'T HAVE MANY, IF ANY, COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE FILM, WHICH IS SHOCKING FOR ME! haha

I CHANGED THE DRAWING FROM A BIT FROM THE SKETCH. I FIXED UP HIS GUN, WHICH WAS LOOKING A BIT SAD. I ALSO TWEAKED HIS OUTFIT AND FACE. I THINK THE" KIRBY DOTS" AROUND THE GUN TURNED OUT WELL.

MEAN AND GREEN



HERE'S MY CARTOON-ISH TAKE ON DRAX THE DESTROYER FROM MARVEL'S GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY FILM. DRAX IS MY LEAST FAVORITE OF THE 5 GUARDIANS, BUT HE WAS STILL GREAT IN THE FILM. I GUESS I JUST TEND TO LEAN TOWARDS VAMPY GIRLS, CARTOON ANIMALS AND TREE PEOPLE.

I'VE INCLUDED MY INITIAL SKETCH BELOW. AS YOU CAN SEE, I DIDN'T BOTHER TO DRAW ON DRAX'S SIGNATURE TATTOOS AT FIRST. AFTER I  
INKED THE DRAWING, I WENT BACK AND USED THE LIGHT BOX TO DRAW HIS TATTOOS ON A DIFFERENT PAPER, THEN LAYERED THEM IN LATER ON.

OMBRE IN SPACE



GAMORA IS THE GREEN SKINNED LETHAL FEMME FATALE OF THE MARVEL COMIC'S SUMMER BLOCKBUSTER GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY. I WAS UNSURE ABOUT ZOE SALDANA PLAYING HER AT FIRST. IN THE COMIC SHE IS TRADITIONALLY MORE VAMP-ISH AND VOLUPTUOUS IN APPEARANCE. BUT I THINK SHE PULLED IT OFF WELL IN THE FILM AND SHE FIT IN NICELY. I', HOPING IN THE NEXT GUARDIANS FILM WE CAN DELVE INTO ADAM WARLOCK AND HIS RELATIONSHIP WITH GAMORA, IT WOULD THROW A NICE WRENCH IN THE BUDDING ATTRACTION BETWEEN HER AND STAR LORD.

I'VE INCLUDED THE ORIGINAL SKETCH AT THE BOTTOM SO YOU CAN SEE HOW I
MADE CHANGES FROM THE ORIGINAL TO THE FINAL PIECE. 


I AM GROOT!




HERE'S MY DRAWING OF GROOT FROM MARVEL'S GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY FILM. WITH SO MANY BIG CHARACTERS IN THE MOVIE, GROOT IS THE SILENT (but strong!) HEART OF THE FILM. THE ORIGINAL SKETCH OF THE UNIVERSE'S BEST TREE-MAN IS AT THE BOTTOM.

STAR LORD!






JUST SAW THE NEW MARVEL MOVIE 'GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY' AND LOVED IT! I SKETCHED UP LIL' CARTOONISH VERSIONS OF THE TEAM AND NOW I'M TRYING TO FIND TIME TO INK & COLOR THEM. 1st UP IN STAR LORD, THE SNARKY SPACE THIEF PLAYED BY CHRIS PRATT.  FOR ME, HE WAS THE BEST PART OF THE MOVIE (and not just when he was shirtless!)
HOPEFULLY IN THE NEXT MOVIE THE GUARDIANS WILL MEET ADAM WARLOCK OR CAPTAIN MARVEL.

P.S. I'VE INCLUDED THE ORIGINAL SKETCH BELOW. I CHANGED A THING OR TWO, BUT MOSTLY KEPT IT EXACTLY AS I FIRST DREW IT.

ALL HAIL THE QUEEN!!!



AND HERE WE ARE KIDS, MY 6th AND FINAL BIANCA DEL RIO PAPER DOLL : QUEEN BIANCA! MIZ DEL RIO MADE THIS BLACK SEQUINED GOWN HERSELF FOR THE LIVE FINALE CROWNING OF RuPAUL'S DRAG RACE, SEASON SIX. THIS BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED DRESS WITH HAND PAINTED TROPICAL FLOWERS AND VENUS FLY TRAPS WAS MY FAVORITE LOOK FROM BIANCA ALL SEASON. FITTING THAT SHE WORE HER BEST WHEN SHE WAS CROWNED THE BEST, NO?

I, FOR ONE, WASN'T SHOCKED WHEN SHE WON. HAS A QUEEN EVER BEEN SP CONSISTENTLY GREAT OVER THE COURSE OF A SEASON OF DRAG RACE? AND NONE ARE AS FUNNY AS HER!

LONG LIVE THE QUEEN!
