BrainSpew the 78th by Altalamatox BrainSpew the 78th by Altalamatox
Time again for our monthly dose of lead. Mmm. Lead.

It's high time I started loosening up the way I draw hoomans. Large parts of me really want to redesign my cast this way, with heavier stylization, it's just damn hard letting go of their current looks. Tried this out with Morgan up there, although he was probably my most cartoony character already.

Esteeméd guests belong to *Shasari, ~DisneyPsycho, ~azispaz, and *Goregoat. (:

Apologies to people who've been trying to reach me recently, been snapping out work for school. Think I can take a break now!

Just thought I'd spend the time I have on me going through your Brainspews. Always a good time to be had. I almost spit my drink out at this one when Tremaine's bemused face popped up. I'd nearly forgotten about it. What a treat. :3

Daaaaaaim, woman! You can draw some weird lookin' faces. They totally rock, by the way. :)

The coloring and shading on those two pics at the bottom is phenomenal. Aww for Cornelius and ickle!Penny sibs interaction, too. :iconloveloveplz: Also, Eric's heads cause me no end of glee. X3 They're so adorable, in a grotesquely cute kind of way. I love that one that's just bouncing in place happily and the one wearing a pan as a hat. :giggle:
Altalamatox Featured By Owner Nov 6, 2013
'Grotesquely cute' is a good way of putting it! I feel the same. They're like... anacondas with the minds of retrievers. Not sure whether to pet, or to run away. 
X-I-L2048 Featured By Owner Nov 8, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
That's an excellent way of putting it. XDDD

How do you come up with all of this??
MaxiMaster Featured By Owner Jul 2, 2013
Is that woman hugging Cornelius supposed to be Diana? Sorry, it's just that I see the gal so little, I don't think I know for certain what she looks like.

Also, I was under the impression that Eric sloooowly gained control of his monster form the farther it got from TONY and closer to the Fluffers of today. Are you saying he just almost instantly gained control over its motor skills at some point? If his curse, and by extension, his monster form, lessened over time because of his change of character, wouldn't that mean the curse would still be strong enough to make him crazed if he was still turning into TONY? Was this occurring when the relatives of the mage who cursed him were still alive?

Oh, and lastly, that image of Link mowing a lawn: GENIUS. At the risk of sounding trite, I must say I LOL'd!
Altalamatox Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2013
Yep! That's Diana. Poor thing. I need to draw her more. I forget the details of her appearance myself. It gives the part of me that is Cornelius guilt and panic attacks.

WEEEEELL. Let me link you to something SUPER SECRET. Okay, it's just some notes-to-self I didn't feel like unloading on my audience at large, who are probably sick to tears of my babblings. BUT SINCE YOU ASK...

I hope that explains how the changes went down. It was gradual, but in sudden steps. If that isn't completely contradictory.
MaxiMaster Featured By Owner Jul 17, 2013
But I LOVE your babblings D: ! Your babblings are the best part!  And why are you keeping all glorious information to yourself!  You must SHARE, woman, or the mage who cursed Eric will come after YOUR ass!  I bet nobody but you knows about the toy store and music stuff, but I know there's a lot of people who would just LOVE to find out!  It says something about Eric and his past that helps explain his present.  And that line about his "excessive munchies" is just so amusingly dark!

I'm just in love with your Count Von Count up there. He's a wonderfully enthusiastic fellow, and I think you captured that.

I'mma put it out there right now - if I ever commission a two-person image from you, it'd likely be your version of the good Count coaching Liam Neeson on filming a scene for Transylvania 65000 (a la [link] ). It would just be . . . spectacular. I can feel it in my bones.

Who's that fellow in the middle with the skull-head and rotted-off jaw?
Altalamatox Featured By Owner Dec 31, 2012
Beneath Link? No idea. He was inspired by the broken bark of the lilac bush I was sitting under at the time. Uurgh, nasty looking thing. Long, dripping jaws smack me right in the horror bone every time.
GilPires Featured By Owner Nov 29, 2012
THUMBS UP!!!! Your style is really Disney like!! It's great!!

Love your sketches, as always! And DOOD! That drawing of your sister doing the freaky-lips thing - my sister does the SAME thing. ALL THE TIME. (Actually, not five minutes ago, she was doing it and pretending to tug at strings on her lips while yelling "FISHHOOKS FISHHOOKS")

This screams Disney. You need to be working for Disney. Where's Disney's career office phone number? Somebody get it. You need to be working for Disney.

Hey, Hey! I got to watch you draw some of these. Great work. I especially like the self portrait.
azispaz Featured By Owner Sep 23, 2012
Link mowing the lawn made me snort into my drink. So great. If only chores could pay off so well.

HEEEEEEEY, lookey there! It's Tremaine! That blasted oaf is the most uncooperative jerk I know. He sure looks awesome though! That was a pleasant surprise I wasn't expecting! :heart:
Ellancher Featured By Owner Sep 22, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
Lovely, its all so different. But you can easily tell its all from the same artist, the same amazing artist.
How do you get it all to look so... crisp on the computer? I'm assuming you've got a nice scanner.
Altalamatox Featured By Owner Sep 26, 2012
Hey, thank you very much! (:

Naw, my scanner's just a scanner. What I do is scan at around 200dpi with the brightness down, so less details are washed out. Then I bring things back to white in PS, paint out smudges and flecks, and shrink stuff down for posting which makes things look a bit smoother than they really are. If that makes sense!
ArcaneLollipop Featured By Owner Sep 20, 2012
siiiigh... Wishing I had your skills. Then I might be able to whip out that next highly rendered four panels of a webcomic before tomorrow morning.

X3 I love how Link is mowing the lawn.

You have such amazing art. :heart: These 'brainspews' are just amazing.
Autumn-Gracy Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2012  Student General Artist
I should do these sorts of brainspews for practice! I really haven't drawn much lately. I love Eric in this so much. Picturing him going from greedy fat aristocratic guy to babysitter of chirping heads makes me lol.
Arhasen Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist

I love your brainspews....

Phantom-Jaselin Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2012  Student Traditional Artist
I love that one head on Eric's body that's just going "boing", very funny.

Link drawing! Haters gonna hate!
Ooni Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Student Filmographer
I like this one more than most of the latest spews.
It just seems more creative and appealing to me, the character designs are more lively and various.

And the idea with drawing on cardboard when bored is great :D
Vimeddiee Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
Lol a Tai Chi pose! I recently picked it up and I'm right up to that that's a coincidence...amazing as always!
the-gneech Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Professional Digital Artist
I love the variation in your designs! I have a hard enough time being consistent with -one- head/body shape, much less being able to do a bunch.
Yunie-B Featured By Owner Sep 13, 2012  Student Filmographer
I lol'd and started choking when I saw the count. One more great drawing from Atalamatox! AH AH AH AH!
