On emperor Ming's Mongo, lizard men aren't exactly first-class citizens.
Well, he did halt, but was blasted anyway
Have you seen Polish 80s children fantasy classics: Mr Inklblot's Academy (according to some inspiration for Hogwarts ) and Mr Inkblot's Travels (sort of take on Sinbad movies) they are incredibly cheap B movies but at the same time very energetic and done with heart they are also psychedelic as fuck especially in the second one there are some unique sea monsters I'd love to see in your style
I haven't seen the movies, but I actually have one of the books translated into Swedish. I'll have to hunt down the movies now!
That's so cool, my friend couldn't fund an english translation at all but apparently it is known not only in Poland. which book do you have?
I can't find the book right now, but I think it's the very first one. I googled the names, and recognized the illustrations with the bearded guy The edition I have seems to be from the 1960's or so.
Wow, cool hope to see some weird art from you then with regard to these movies.
I'll have to track them down first I see that these movies were made in the 1980's -I think that's the perfect decade for making just that kind of weird children's movies. The 70's was probably even a better decade at that.
Lizard men get no respect in anything!
In the comics they get their asses kicked by Flash Gordon, in the movie Ming provided that service.
I like how you rendered that outfit, which could have been really uncomfortable.
They got some really slim guys to dress up in the lizardman costumes. For what little you see them I think they did a good job with these creatures, body language and all.
It's alright, he'll save everyone of us!
AWESOME job! This is fantastic & a great reminder to mt of one of my all time favorite movies.
Fantastic! The command orb is spot on. The serpent slaves, however, never had intentionally visible features.
They are only a mouth with the eyeballs on the inside. Outlines of a nose and mouth were coincidental and not really intended.
They sort of look like the lizardmen in the comic, though those guys were of tougher stock than the ones in the movie.
Googled the images. Your rendition is spot on. What a freaky -looking design to come up with for the movie. These guys freaked me out more than the lizard-tongue baby scene in V.
Also, the orb is just called floating orb or Ming's floating servant. I wish it had some kind of Latiny Transformer sounding name like Persucon or Gratyicus
Your lizardman looks better than the movie's!
It's actually pretty close to the actual costume. Google images of it, and you'll see
The cheapness of this costume was stupefying.
The face mask is weird as weird can be, but when you actually google photos of the lizard man costume it looks pretty nifty. It's not made to look organic at all, but it looks like some intricate armor. That doesn't come across in the movie at all.
It was a costume? This wasn't real? Oh, no!
Why do they have a face inside of their mouths?
wonder what the actual biology of the Lizardmen was
It's hard to tell where the costume ends and the body begins. But here's my theory: The serpent head is a deterrent camouflage against predators, a result of evolution, and the costume helps the lizardmen look even more snakelike and dangerous.
Flash: This Ming is a Psycho
Robot: *This Ming is a Psycho*
They are, unfortunately, first-class target practice!
