EARTH-SHAKER


I'VE ALWAYS LIKED RICTOR, A 3rd TIER MARVEL COMICS SUPER-HERO, FOR SOME REASON. RICTOR (REAL NAME JULIO ESTEBAN "RIC" RICHTER) IS A MUTANT WHO CAN CAUSE EARTHQUAKES AND CONTROL SEISMIC ENERGY.  FOR SUCH A MINOR MUTANT HERO, RICTOR HAS SURE BEEN ON A LOT OF HERO TEAMS: NEW MUTANTS, X-TERMINATORS, X-FORCE, X-FACTOR AND THE X-CORPORATION. HE'S ALSO MARVELS 2nd MOST VISIBLE GAY SUPER-HERO (NORTHSTAR IS THE 1st, OVBS). AFTER SEEING RICTOR'S 90's ACTION FIGURE IN A BARGAIN BIN AT THE COMIC STORE, I CAME HOME AND WORKED UP THIS PIECE. MAYBE I'LL DO HIS BOYFRIEND SHATTERSTAR OR MAYBE NORTHSTAR NEXT.

PRIMARY KYLIE






















WELL I FINALLY FOUND MY DRAWING OF KYLIE MINOGUE IN HER WHITE SPANDEX, CORSET AND STRIPED SHIRT FROM HER "MONEY CAN'T BUY" TOUR! IT TOOK ME FOREVER! IT'S VERY SAD I HAD TO SEARCH THE WEB FOR MY OWN ART WORK, BUT I DID FINALLY FIND THE ORIGINAL DRAWING IN A FOLDER IN MY CLOSET. I WATER COLORED THE BACKGROUND TO MATCH THE OTHER PIECES IN THIS KYLIE-COSTUME SERIES. I'VE ALWAYS TWEAKED MY "SLOW" KYLIE WEARING A FAB BLUE BALENCIAGA MINI DRESS.

BOTH OF THESE ARE AVAILABLE TO BUY AS PRINTS AT MY SOCIETY6 STORE. CLICK HERE--> ( http://society6.com/hithereb )

HAMMER TIME!


THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY NEED SOMEONE SUPER-EVIL TO FIGHT AGAINST, AND THAT'S WHERE RONAN THE ACCUSER COMES IN. HE'S GOT A BIG HAMMER, BLUE SKIN AND A BAD ATTITUDE!

I SEEM TO REMEMBER THAT OL' RONAN IS USUALLY AN ENEMY OF THE FANTASTIC FOUR IN THE COMICS, BUT HE FITS IN GREAT WITH THE COSMIC ADVENTURES OF THE GUARDIANS. PLUS, THE INTRODUCTION OF A KREE VILLAIN MAKES WAY FOR US TO MEET Ms. MARVEL / CAPTAIN MARVEL / CAROL DANVERS! FINALLY A FEMALE HERO! CAPTIAN MARVEL AND THE INHUMANS AND THE 2 MARVEL FILMS I AM MOST EXCITED FOR IN THE YEARS TO COME!

THE ORIGINAL SKETCH FOR THIS PIECE IS BELOW. AS YOU CAN SEE I MADE A FEW SMALL TWEAKS TO MAKE THE COSTUME MORE LIKE THE ONE IN THE FILM. ALSO, I DON'T KNOW WHY I WROTE "DESTROYER" INSTEAD OF "ACCUSER".  IT'S A NERD FAUX PAS!


FEELIN' BLUE


THE REAL STAND OUT VILLAIN OF GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY FOR ME WAS BLUE SKINNED BAD ASS NEBULA. (A LOT OF THE BAD GUYS IN THIS FILM SEEM TO HAVE BLUE SKIN.
HMMMM . . .)

KAREN GILLIAN DID A GREAT JOB PLAYING HER AS BOTH CUNNING AND UNHINGED. HER PROMINENCE IN THE FILM NOW MAKES THIS 3rd RATE MARVEL COMICS BADDIE A MAJOR NAME IS THE ARCH NEMESIS ARENA.

I'VE INCLUDED AN INKED BLACK & WHITE PIC OF HER HEAD BELOW, JUST 'CUZ I THINK IT TURNED OUT NICE.

SPACE PIRATE


YONDU WAS THE ONLY ORIGINAL ("O.G.") GUARDIAN TO MAKE IT INTO THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY FILM. THOUGH HE WASN'T A TEAM MEMBER THIS GO-ROUND, HE DID SERVE AS STAR LORD'S ADOPTIVE FATHER.

IT KIND'A BUGGED ME THAT MANY OF THE MEN IN HIS BAND OF SPACE PIRATES WERE NORMAL SKINNED PEOPLE, AS OPPOSED TO BLUE SKINS, LIKE HIMSELF. I GUESS MAYBE THEY WERE ALL KIDNAPPED FROM EARTH AS WELL? ANYWAYS, I'M INTO HIS WEIRD METAL CYBER MOHAWK HEAD IMPLANT THINGIE!

COLLECT 'EM ALL!


THE COLLECTOR, PLAYED BY BENICO DEL TORO IN THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY MOVIE, IS ONE OF THOSE SECONDARY CHARACTERS WHERE IT WAS HARD TO FIND A GOOD PICTURE OF HIS WHOLE OUTFIT. THROUGH A FEW GOOGLE SEARCHES, I PIECED HIS LOOK TOGETHER AND FAKED THE REST. IN THE END, I'D DAY I DID A GOOD JOB W/ IT. I ESPECIALLY LIKE HIS ALIEN ANIMAL SKIN CAPE (SHEARLING LINED, FOR THE WINTER MONTHS IN SPACE, OF COURSE)
I WONDER IF HE'LL SHOW UP IN FUTURE MARVEL MOVIES?
