Bad Metal:

Land of the Dead: Landscape

20141122_hell_landscape

A bit of concept art for Satan’s realm, influenced by the abstraction of Yellow Submarine but filtered through, y’know, sex and violence and stuff. Also: Blacklight posters forever.

Land of the Living: Neighbourhood

20141121_suburbia_ext

This is where the gang spends most of their time (while amongst the living) – Vince’s parents’ house, specifically in and around the garage.

Please note the rubbery grass, somewhat abstracted greenery, and bands of colour tones that break up what would otherwise be flat expanses of colour.

While I was playing around with the Jem redesigns last year, I came up with a few different looks and put them through their paces.

Last year I took a stab at a little redesign of everybody’s favourite hologram-assisted superstar.

Full-Throttle Girly Cartoons

Those girls from my girly poster experiment demanded that they be turned into cartoons.

Full-Throttle Girly

A little while ago I challenged myself to draw the most girly thing I could – like, something I imagined a young lady might want hanging on their wall.

I was also thinking it needed to be suuuuuper 80s-feeling.

These look infinitely better blown up big, so make sure you click on ‘em to make ‘em full screen.

… Kinda wish I could have these printed in black-light ink.

Satan Expression Test

20130720_satanExpressions

Satan: The root of all evil.

This guy loves his job as ruler of the underworld.

The next time you lose your keys right before a big job interview, or get suddenly insanely hungry ten minutes after all the restaurants in your neighbourhood close for the night, you can bet he’s behind the scenes making your life suck poops.

Tandars – Redesigned Parents

20130612_tandarParents

More stuff from the commercial I’m reworking.

Here we have the parents, all decked out for a little family hike.

Dad looks like he’s got an entire collection of camping gear in those cargo pockets, and mom’s sporting a nice pair of sturdy hiking legs.

All set for a day of mosquito bites and getting lost in the woods!

Tandars – Redesigned Kids

20130609_tandarKids

Kid designs for a commercial I’m revamping.

They’re on a little hike in the jungle, hence her practical-but-pretty little pink mountain climbing boots.

The little dude’ll probably step on something sharp in his inappropriate-for-hiking sneakers and have to be left behind for the jungle creatures to devour / raise as their own.
