Is this the beginning of something? Nope, it’s just the end. A little comeback to the “love and death” atmosphere I tried several times to draw when I was a struggled teenager. To make this cocktail of feelings you need to be a teenager, no friends, no girlfriend (of course), few drops (or more) of Tim Burton and shake it along with Guybrush Threepwood’s ginger beer surrounded by a dark room where the only light come from an old Amiga 500 screen aaaand.. you’re served! Anyway, afterlife seems like hell to our little zombie here, waiting for his beloved wife. ‘Until death do us part” remember? Burocracy.
This is a personal project just for the fun of it. I’m trying to force myself to not draw every single detail but the more incisive, that it’s so much fun and more communicative. Here’s a step-by-step picture that explain the whole process. There’s no drawing or sketching, I just let those random grey shapes to tell me what to do, so this is the reason why is quite a non-sense illustration. Seems like a fat Ryu from the Street Fighter videogame caught with his hand in the cookie jar!
“this is battery acid you slime!”: this is what Eddie said, according to the original version of “IT”, the screenplay adaptation of the well-known Stephen King’s book. The italian overdub is a little bit different: “questo è acido muriatico brutto mostro!”. Maybe they had thought that muriatic acid is more dangerous than the batteries one. Anyway, this is just a little tribute I made in my spare time to the Pennywise and Eddie scene, I hope you enjoy it! I used to watch this mini-series several times (first part much better though) when I was younger just because of the Tim Curry’s character. The movie pretty sucks but this evil yet funny clown still fascinates me.
This is just a little tribute I made for “Regina Nera” the brand new episode of Matteo Strukul‘s saga, presented for the first time here. Matteo is also the mind behind Sugarpulp project. There you can reach the author and see this amazing exhibition by Schio Comics Collective!
