I don't know how many of you remember the movie Star Kid. It was with the kid from Jurassic Park and he gets in this alien suit, but the design of the suit was pretty disturbing to me, it was kind of pushy and had this disgusting face inside that would talk to him.

My brother and I have ongoing jokes about the film, and one night at a Chinese restaurant (I think the last time we were at that one) we were having a Star Kid drawing battle on napkins while the rest of our family was confused by all our laughter. I broke out this one and we were both rolling. So on Labor Day my brother asked me to re-draw it properly, and here it is!!

Another image idea that I had to make happen. I used pen, fluid acrylics, a bit of drybrush, and some prismacolor white to bring some shapes back out and clarity on the faces and bodies. I had to go with some of that warm lighting that Jim Oakley and I enjoy so much!

I was having some fun with a red ballpoint pen and some prismacolor while waiting for something. I did this out of my head, I have to say that because the first two people I showed this to asked if it was somebody I know. Though I've memorized a lot of people's features, so maybe it is a conglomeration of different people?

Got this image stuck in my head and had to see it through. Dry brush, no thresholding on this, I wanted to have that sense of opacity with the colors.
