And I’ll be in Wales! But it reminds me, speaking of dog pics, that last year we did a very cute picture of Ms Tikki for Halloween and it wasn’t posted here. Maybe we’ll do another spooky* one this year too, but meanwhile here is the wonder of last year’s pic…
Continuing this theme on the 15th anniversary of Club Vamporama (and the year of its demise!!), and following the Marie comparison, here’s two versions of a CV comic-book-that-never-happened cover.
Directly below is the most-recent version, from my moderately productive 2019 period. I’m still fairly happy with this. I don’t think it’s as cool or effective as the 2019 Marie portrait, but it’s OK.
Well, seeing as how a rather diminutive version of the Great One has appeared in some of my art (such as the previous post!)—I thought I ought to try and do a pic of Cthulhu where he looks a bit more awesome… a bit more like he might just be standing 200 feet high!
So, I’m posting the finished drawing followed by the original sketch… because while the finished piece may be a little more polished, somehow the sketch has more energy, so they’re both kinda interesting, no?
Well, in theory… as the comic is more or less an imaginary one!
In fact, this image is a reprise of a piece from 2016—see below—featuring Jenni & Marie (and friend). Although only three years old, I recently did a new version… because, it ain’t bad but it coulda been better.
Firstly, All Bad Things news: the shoot will now take place on August 20th. A couple of people dropped out at last minute and we’re currently looking for someone to handle the sound tech. More VERY soon!
Anyhow. Yesterday was the fourth shoot for Club Vamporama, this time uniting Dru and Lizzie (for the first time, as they appear to just miss each other in previous item, even though their scenes were shot five weeks apart!) for a scene set indoors—the so-called “Cthulhu Sketch”, which we previously did an abortive screen test on some months ago—plus a title sequence shot outdoors (storyboards for which I shall be posting tonight or tomorrow).
New comics! As some of you know, I stopped doing comics after February 2013. During the hiatus I did some other things, including a few T-shirt designs. Anyhow, right now I’m moving towards a number of new projects, including regular Webcomics and a revival of Club
Yup, Club Com/Vamp is, as of June 2016, exactly ten years old! To celebrate, there will be two new strips; firstly, a reworking of an older strip, below—to be followed shortly by an all-new one!
Compare & contrast time!
