Page16 - the Crowd

Stars in the Crowd on Page 16! In the third panel on Page 16 you might rec­og­nize some famil­iar faces. If you don’t you should go check them out! Here are the big names in the crowd.

Darrin Stephens-Lab Bugs    Grave by Darrin Stephens

Let’s start off with Dar­rin Stephens’s slugs in the upper right cor­ner. These guys are from Darrin’s comic strip that now goes by the name  Lab­Bugs, a great strip that man­ages to make me laugh with it’s humor and Darrin’s abil­ity to cre­ate some great facial expres­sions for  his char­ac­ters. If the style of his work and his name look famil­iar, Dar­rin also did some pretty great fan art of Night­mare Pro Wrestling’s pro­tag­o­nist, Grave!

Taco Head Taco Head

The sin­is­ter taco headed indi­vid­ual to the left is none other than the trag­i­cally mutated vil­lain… Taco Head! Who wishes to free all fast food from the evil of human­ity.  I love the design of this char­ac­ter. Taco Head is the vil­lain in Jeff Crowther’s web­comic Yeti 4 Hire, I dis­cov­ered this web­comic  while back and it quickly made it to the top of my list.  Jeff also man­ages to put out a great page every time. It’s always fun and has an amaz­ing color to it.

Cap'n Cat  Cap'n Cat Cap'n Cat

The three felines down at the bot­tom of the panel are from a mini-comic I pick up a while back called Cap’n Cat: For­mer Shark Hunter by Anne and Jerzy Drozd. Jerzy is one of my favorite cre­ators, always putting out some great work, full of fun and imag­i­na­tion. Cap’n Cat: For­mer Shark Hunter is no dif­fer­ent. Need proof, here’s the syn­op­sis for the mini-comic: “Retired shark hunter Cap’n Lao’s only desire is to spend his twi­light years catch­ing deli­cious fish. But the Shark World has sworn vengeance, and they hunt him across the seas!” How cool is that?!

Fright Night Fright Night

The group of vam­pires right by the gang of Cap’n Cat are from Fright Night. I have yet to see the remake but the 1985 movie is prob­a­bly one of my all time favorite hor­ror movies and def­i­nitely my favorite vam­pire movie. How can you not love a movie with Chris Saran­don as an evil vampire?

MST3K-SoulTaker  MST3K-SoulTaker

Finally, the two indi­vid­u­als dressed in black, right above the cats, are from the hor­ri­ble 80’s movie ‘Soul­taker.’ I mean ‘hor­ri­ble’ in a great way. I’ve only seen the Mys­tery Sci­ence The­atre 3000 ver­sion and is on of my pre­ferred episodes. It’s ridicu­lous. It’s over the top. It’s unin­ten­tion­ally hilar­i­ous. The MST3K riff­ing only adds to how funny it is. I went ahead and included a MST3K ‘Best of’ vid instead of the trailer.

NPW Issue 4 Page 17-Pencils & Inks

NPW Page 17 Pen­cils and Inks. Dig­i­tal Pen­cils and inks are done for page 17 of issue 4. The page fin­ished up a lot quicker than I thought it would…and I’m glad it did! Still try­ing to hit my dead­line of fin­ish­ing this issue by April 18th. I inked this page using Manga Stu­dio 5 this time around. It took some get­ting use to but I man­aged to get through it. I don’t think I’ll be using it again for ink­ing Night­mare Pro Wrestling though. It doesn’t quite have the look I’m going for, which I def­i­nitely get out of ink­ing in Adobe Illus­tra­tor. Not to say I won’t use Manga Stu­dio at all. I’ve been test­ing it out with another comic I’ve been work­ing on and it seems per­fect for that one.
Check out the site next week to see the fin­ished Page 17!

Starting Daniel Bryan Art Print!

Daniel Bryan WIP

Start­ing Daniel Bryan art print! Last week I posted up a poll on the Night­mare Pro Wrestling Face­book page and asked which two Pro Wrestling would peo­ple like to see me turn into art prints. The final results were Daniel Bryan and Rey Mys­te­rio. Those two are going to be a blast to draw! Started off with design­ing the art print for Daniel Bryan, one of my favorite cur­rent wrestlers.
I’m plan­ning on debut­ing the two prints at Comic­palooza this year. I’ll make sure to post up progress as I get more done.

One of them being John Sit­tion from the Geek Bom­bast Pod­cast, a cool dude who picked up some comics and some art prints.
