Droids Custom Klaatu: Completely Colored!

Another productive week!

And there you have it. I'm quite pleased with how these colors turned out. The bold cartoon colors of Gaff are a striking contrast to the muted earth tones of Klaatu. I love the expression on Pote Snitkin's face after coloring - he genuinely looks concerned, which is an accomplishment for a very alien visage. I'm particularly fond of how I achieved a very convincing frocked texture for Klaatu's skirt. And I tried out a new splatter brush that was AHHH-MA-ZING! Really gives the Skiff a world-worn look.

I need to paint some coins, take a photo of the Klaatu action figure for the back, write up a bio, and drop everything onto my templates. If that all goes well, we're looking at assembly next weekend, and it'll go on sale February 17th.

On Sunday I had nothing to do, so I inked.

That photo is before I erased all the pencils. You can maybe see how I use inking to refine my lazy pencils. See, if I was a professional penciller, my pencils would look pretty much exactly ...

"Gekko" the bounty hunter comic book tour 2021

by Darth Danno
on 2021-01-27, 07:56:22

That's right! Dominic Pace will be coming around to a comic shop near you this year again! Starting May 1st and going through Aug 23rd, he will be travelling across the country to meet fans, pose for pictures, sign autographs, and all sorts of fun stuff. If you missed him last year, this is your chance to make up for it, if you met him already last year, you have another chance to bask in his awesomeness yet again. It's a "win-win" for everyone! I will be posting individual tour dates each week once the tour actually kicks off, but for now here are all the dates that we have so far (in the most user-unfriendly format you can use for text data - JPEG!).

My sweet Babou

by Bill Cable
on 2021-01-27, 07:55:49

Back in 2019, before the dark times, The FX Network animated television series Archer aired it's 3rd and final "Dream Persona" season, Archer 1999. It was a coma-dream parody of all things Sci-fi, with many callbacks to Star Wars and Alien, among countless others. It was, IMO, the most successful of the "Dream Persona" seasons; Archer Dreamland was nearly indecipherable due to its heavy reliance on period-appropriate language and inside jokes. Archer Danger Island was a fun parody of Magnum P.I, Romancing the Stone, and other cheesy 80's fare... but still felt lesser than the main series. 1999, by comparison, was strong throughout. In addition to the great references, Archer was slowly awakening, so there was always this sort of dread that his reality was shattering.

Anyway... one thing I was immediately drawn to was the flight crew patch the characters had on their shoulders. It featured Cheryl Tunt's pet ocelot Babou, and it was just gorgeous. I liked it so much, I felt compelled to make it real. So I converted an image of the patch to "patch art" and made a run of them.

I'm selling them on eBay right now, but if you'd like to cut out the middleman (and associated fees), I'll do $3 shipped (USA) with a PayPal gift payment. Just send an email to cable@creaturecantina.com with your mailing address. I'm not looking to make much money on these things... I just want to share the love.

I've been assured that I'll be getting answers from BOTH of them this time. We'll see what they have to say next week!
