BrainSpew the 75th by Altalamatox BrainSpew the 75th by Altalamatox
Blurgh, the long spring of art death threatens to spill into the summer. I feel like I'm making up for having less drawings anymore by posting them huge and yaking about them a lot.

Apparently, nowhere in all my blabbing about Eric's curse did I mention he's a sad bag of bones when he first transforms. He looks and acts pretty terrifying for a bit, it's a state which is quickly remedied. Meantime don't let him lick you, that spit'll strip paint.

Eric: Ah, and for the record, I don't have boxers with muffins on them. They're obviously cupcakes.

Original original character revist timeh:

Tom used to be something of a loose cannon, certainly never a villain but ordered his clothes from the same catalogue.

If Benís life seems oddly idyllic relative to the rest of my cast, itís because heís already died and gone to heaven. I suspect I have a lot of subliminal guilt about using him for a punching bag of pathos throughout my late childhood.

The only good way I've found to win the argument that Corneliusí glatnism can't possibly be as miserable as he says has been to remind him of the days he was a GIANT HOWLING MUTANT PHLEGM, because it makes him turn white and stagger off to look at pictures of kittens.

(For the interested, I believe lubii, the beasties that pass on glatnism, may now look something like mini cousins of this fine thing.)


Back into the woodwork I go.

Your descriptions are pure gold (to say nothing of the sketches themselves). XD The part about Cornelius staggering off to look at pictures of kittens had me howling for a good minute. :lmao:

So Tom is not a villain? darn, I mean cool!

I'm just sying that he looks like he would be an awsome villain =D

If it makes it better, he did have a stint as an antihero. Not as awesome as a villain, but it's something! I think it may well be because Tom looks SO MUCH like a bad guy that I can't possibly make him one. He'd maybe be running a little cliche.

I guess I kind of draw cleanly to begin with? I do some digital clean up but they kind of just come out this way.

All of your line art is amazing, I wish I could see every. single. one. as a finished polished product (not possible, I know. Besides, they're just as entertaining as line art)
HOWEVER. *ahem* Dapper Tom is pretty sweet.
Where is he going in that top hat btw?

Man these are beautiful! I love how you put so much thought into your characters. Do you have voices for them?

Hey, thank you very much!

I do know their voices in terms of tone and accent, but if you mean do they sound like any big actors, the answer is so far no.

I think this could well be my favorite Brainspew yet. Mostly because of lovey-dovey Cornelius right up there at the top, but also because of crazy shape-mimicking Morgan teasing Cornelius, and cherry-sipping The Speck, and dramatically different starved!shifted!Eric from fluffy!shifted!Eric, and poor misunderstood high school boys (Cornelius most of all, but we've already discussed my unhealthy bias toward him).

ACTUALLY, it was this one: [link] . A friend linked me and said the music (violin/electric) reminded her of Tom, but then all I could do was imagine him doin' the dance. XD

Thank you!

Oh dear god... I played violin for a few years and it is hard enough to play sitting down, motionless let alone leaping and kicking and strutting. I have no idea how she keeps her bow from bouncing all over the place. Excellent timing, I suppose. I'm pretty sorely addicted to her music now, about time someone pulled off a good fusion of violin and a beat.

Oh gosh, so much Eric in this one! So cool seeing the two sides of his transformation together. I love the chibi!Erik, he's make a great plushie.

And revisiting high school, you are a brave woman. I dread to think about my creative output from back then.

:iconaltalamatox:
Altalamatox Featured By Owner May 19, 2012
Oh god, I know. He's like Cornelius and Morgan, he cheats and gets extra attention by having multiple appearances.

I would not put it past tiny Eric to be all ninja in a pile of stuffed animals and jump passer-by. But I bet his roar's all high and squeaky and ridiculous and he looks to be a good size for punting across a room, so maybe he should rethink his schemes.

URRRGH. The walls within wall within walls I have put up around my high school days. I did not do teenage gracefully. All my characters were powerful, dark, angry, and stupid. Do you keep any characters/stories around that were started back then?

I managed to get through my teenage years relatively unscathed, I was lucky to have a group of friends just as weird as I was. The only thing I kept from way back then is a character named Sentari (back when I thought "swords are overdone, scythes are original" *groan*) who has changed and grown but has managed to keep her story somewhat consistent though the details just now are settling: A tough general who turned to the life of adventuring because she honestly would never have chosen the military life if she had the choice (war with the forces of hell tends to make the choices for you, at least they won). I ended up making a whole fantasy world to give her a setting which turned into my little pet world with lots and lots of characters (fan characters tend to make it there where I have more freedom to work). Still working on some details but I hope to write it out eventually. Too bad I have no plot, might just end up being a series of one-shots.

Everything else from high school has been scraped or recycled. Though once in a while I come across a notebook with my writings in it and am immensely embarrassed.

One of these days I'm going to draw Eric. Seriously, of your characters he and Tom are my favorites, and he wins by a nose just because he's such a fluffy fella.

And sure, Eric, those are cupcakes. Breakfast cupcakes.
