This is Action Mohammed, the Super-Prophet of the Muslim faith. Given that images of him are frowned upon to prevent Muslims from worshiping the man instead of the teachings (way to go on that), the irreverence of a comic book cover ought to dissuade any such inclined people from throwing away their torah and bowing in the direction of my art instead.
Also, I spelled "conquer" wrong. I am ashamed. Nick Perks has been doing fan art for The Line It Is Drawn for 100 straight weeks. This is my 9th week.
These suckers are poisonous. One bite, and you're in for days of pain. And while you wander around, getting weaker, your wound festers, and komodo dragons all around can smell it. They follow you. Patiently. Until you fall. Picking your skeleton clean should take it no more than a few hours.
If anyone can point me to a direction where I can buy/download the movie "SHINBONE ALLEY" from 1971, you'll win all my internets. I'll draw you pictures. ANYTHING!
When I was a kid I used to watch this movie several times, and I remember attempting to draw Mehitabel (with little success). I mostly forgot about it as I grew up, but some images still remained in my memory. A few days ago I decided that I wouldn't rest until I'd find out what the movie was called, as I couldn't remember even that.
Today, I found it! Glee! Now I just want to see it again. I've searched the net, but no help. Anyone?
Half an hour with pen and PhotoShop. Just because I wanted to see if I can finally draw her.
Oh yeah. She reminds me SO MUCH of Seras from Hellsing... X)
EDIT 30.5.2007: I GOT IT! And I recommend this movie, the animation is wonderful, the music brilliant, and Carol Channing's voice is just amazing. Woo!
Started out just as a drawing of Chico (who is starting to steal my heart. If you'd told me it would've happened two weeks ago, I'd've laughed). Then an odd looking Harpo popped up, proudly displaying the watch that he'd managed to save from his brother. So then I threw Groucho in. But when I thought about Chico as the big brother, I realized that included all of his brothers. So I attempted to draw Zeppo (curse your good-looking blandness!) and added Gummo in as well (very tricky, since I could only find about two pictures of him around that age).
Not one of my best pics, but one of my better executed ideas, I think. Chico came out looking a little more wry than I intended, Harpo looks...funny, and Zeppo...*sigh* I like Zeppo, I really do. But he is so cursed hard to draw.
I think that's one of my favorite things about the Marx Brothers--they're brothers. Anyone who's been around me for the past month can tell you that I have been ranting on (sickeningly so by now, I imagine) about how much I love my family, even though we don't always get along. And I loved reading the bit of Harpo's autobiography that I could get my hands on. I want to knowmore about Gummo. Anyone who got his nickname by sneaking up on people is fun in my book.
And I really am falling in love with Chico...how can that man be sexy (is that even the right word?) I always thought he was kinda creepy before. ...I blame the piano solo in Horsefeathers ("Maybe it's-a better if I don't sing either).
