Illustration Friday : Seed


"This Starseed is No Good."

Skeletor was duped! Poor little guy is left holdin' a fake. HA!

A couple months ago, I tried to paint a similar piece for the Saturday Morning Cartoons show on this funky little wooden plaque, but it turned out way too dark and just plain poorly executed. Booo. What a waste of a nice piece of wood. I've been wanting to re-do the piece for some time, so happily, this week's Illo topic game me a boost - I decided to do it up digitally this time around... still dark, but hopefully not as crappy(?)

Hey... don't you think the voice of The Monarch from the Venture Bros. sounds vaguely like Skeletor? Is it just me?

Very cool! Definitely not too dark...With a complexion like that, Skeletor wouldn't dare go out in the midday sun. Great piece.
