A couple of quick silhouette studies of the guys from UXB.

Strong, graphic shapes can help to define a characters persona whilst also lending it's design a certain readability; so that no matter how many extras are surrounding them or how complex the environment gets - they will always stand out. It's a basic visual language.

The problem with UXB was that all three guys have those huge codpiece like devices attached to their bodies and therefore all had a very similar silhouette.

So to help break their design up a bit I gave Das the atypical long coat (similar to Hellboy, Constantine and an endless array of other comic book /film characters )

With Muc I added the poncho which was a rather simple choice as he is a fan of the Spaghetti western and Clint Eastwood.

I could then leave the remaining character 'Rifter' to wander around showing off his ridiculous package as is.

You will notice that Rifter in the third drawing has added a penis like appendage for extra effect...


Hey, I'm just the artist!

I have been working on UXB the past while and getting together the first issue. A few other comic related things came my way since I completed the preview issue and I have been incredibly busy with the day job-

- but it is on its way...

You want some...!?

Waited a long time for this:

That's for taking away my morning milk bitch!!!

And muppet!!

My son even created a Neutron Star above his middle finger to celebrate the event(I won't go into the science of how one may create a Neutron Star ... let's just say it takes a great deal of concentration and the summoning of Zeus!)
Thankfully Mother Teresa was looking the other way.

Subject: Madame Tussauds and unresolved anger issues.

Quote of the day.

My guess is that modern animated movies are the products not of anyone's individual vision, but rather a scattered accumulation of compromises made out of fear by members of large committees.

When I exited the bathroom wearing only a pair of boxers, a tee-shirt that had an EC comics logo and a pair of sandals that I had not yet bothered removing (It had been a sunny day). I had a moment where I thought I resembled how a more contemporary Jesus Christ would look.

I even felt more spiritually aware at that moment; like a load had been lessened.

A pair of sandals and some naked legs will do that for you (Note: you need to see well above the knee, so remove your cargo shorts or other type of clothing for proper effect)
