Egon Spengler by Jon

I haven't had time to do a proper drawing for this blog for a long time, so I thought I'd just do a couple quick sketches of my favorite Ghostbuster, Egon, in the Real Ghostbusters style. People have often called me "Egon", both because of my considerable nerdiness and because my hair tends to spontaneously form into a Harold-Ramis-esque pompadour without my realizing it.

Ghostbusters Geistbusters by Zach

Things have slowed down on this blog a bit, but we keep picking new characters to draw, and the next characters chosen were the Ghostbusters, so I figured what the Hell. I wanted to show them busting somebody, and thought it would be fun to put a famous ghost in the trap, rather than some generic ghoulie. I suppose I could have put Deadman in there, or Starscream, but I just couldn't resist the pun potential in choosing Poltergeist from Justin Aclin's comic Hero House.

Again, this is one where I gave up 75% of the way through because I thought I'd bitten off more than I could chew, but ended up going back in after getting inspired (this time by Alex K.'s animation on the new Marvel What The....?! and Sean T. Collins' new comic). I even got fancy with my computer coloring, throwing a Mike Dimayuga panel into the picture frame and using some glowy filters on Egon's stream and the ghost trap. We lose Egon and Ray's ankles, but we're all better off, to be honest. As much as I love coloring, I may try to do an actually good black-and-white sketch next time, rather than going for the finished look. 
Check out a 50-page preview of Hero House here, then order it from Amazon. Then order MY book, Pop Sculpture, from Barnes & Noble!

Captain Caveman by Alex K.

I never watched the cartoon as a kid, so I caught a few YouTube clips of Captain Caveman to get an idea of what the character is all about. I probably watched three full episodes and couldn't figure it out. Oh well, here he is looking like a barbarian.

For Mel <3

The Warriors by Zach Oat

Following Rickey Purdin's amazing entries on this blog is a thankless job, but he always inspires me to draw better, so I revisited my Warriors sketch, which I had given up earlier, thinking it was too ambitious for my skills, and managed to tighten it up a bit and finish it.
I'm not saying it's the best drawing of any of the Warriors -- Ajax, Swan and Rembrandt are okay, I guess, but Cochise comes off looking like a woman -- I'm just happy to have finished it, and to have figured out how to do a crazy gradient background on the colored version.

All-Star Warriors by Rickey

Our next theme is actually The Warriors, the classic Walter Hill film, as chosen by TJ.

I cheated and tossed together an all-star Warriors team made up of (from left to right) wrestler "Road WARRIOR Animal," Mel's Gibson's Road WARRIOR "Mad Max," the Wizard Master kid from Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream WARRIORS, Swan from the WARRIORS, wrestler The Ultimate WARRIOR, and Antonio Banderas's 13th WARRIOR.

So many hardcore much ass to stomp.

Batman Lost in Time by Alex K.

Taking a cue from Chris Ward's take on Batman Lost In Time, I decided to Photoshop this entry.

I thought this would be a cool place for Batman to end up.

Orko by Alex K.

I never watched He-Man. I'm kinda glad about that, though. I have enough trouble trying to get my hands on Mattel's DCUC and Ghostbuster toys, I don't have the patience for another toy line. So although I'm familiar with Orko's image, I have no idea what he does. Something magical? Is he an orc? "Orc..." "Orko?" I'm gonna say he's an orc. I painted him like an orc.

Destructor by Alex K.

Sean T. Collins' creation Destructor faces off against a Terminator.
You can't really tell, but trust me: Destructor has turned his hat backwards Over-The-Top-style, so I think you already know who's the winner of this match. I was also going to draw Bender, R2-D2 and some other robots clutching money, screaming and betting on the match in the background, but I got lazy.

Geist by Alex K.

Hello! This is Alex Kropinak with my first post here on the LAW Blog: 'Geist Dude,' featuring Justin Aclin's Hero House character! Remember Ghost Dad?

I was going to put the faces of three HH characters peeking out of the right side of the paper so it resembled the original Ghost Dad movie poster more, plus made more sense for Geist to be flipping the bird to someone, but I got lazy.

In case you care, I make videos for For example, the stop-motion animated show "Marvel Super Heroes: What The--?!" I'm not much of a writer but I sure do like drawlin' pitchers! I have a lot of catching up to do on the blog but I'm looking forward to posting more!

Boys Club by Rickey

I can't choose a favorite member of Boys Club, so I just chose Pepe from a strip that I think Dave commissioned for use in Wizard once. Pepe's nards hurt, so Andy told him to hop up and down, which led to ungodly amounts of puke for no reason. PERFECT.
And this is my first watercolor painting. I'd be proud of me if I were my own son.
