This week I’m posting some really cool CSTW fan art created by we.are.the.armada:

Cthulhu Saves the World - by we.are.the.armada

You can heck out his other art on tumblr here:


I really like this CSTW piece. I like the “sketchy” quality of it, it gives it a distinct style. I also like the way he’s done the characters’ faces; it’s got more realistic proportions but still uses forms and lines well.
Cthulhu looks awesome and kind of intimidating! And paws looks almost regal, as I’m sure he would prefer. Not being a kitty and all..

I also decided to draw some PA related stuff, since we at zeboyd are currently in the thick of building Rainslick4.

Dr. Blood

Dr. Blood

So Penny Arcade hasn’t done a comic featuring Dr. Blood in a while, and Gabe’s (Mike Krahulik’s) art has improved and changed a lot in the past many years. So I attempted drawing Dr. Blood in such a way that I thought might somewhat befit a modern Penny Arcadish-esque style, as opposed to the way Dr. Blood was originally drawn in one of the older styles. Mike Krahulik is extremely talented and he would certainly draw this character differently, and better, and with more flair, but I hope that maybe I did an okay job trying to envision the character in a newer-ish style.

Thanks for checking it out the art this week!  Feel free to send me any fan art you’ve done and I’ll post it 🙂

OK back to work on Rainslick4.
