Great plates alive!
Lovely loose inking on these Ian.
Funny, the character from the hole in the wall looks nothing like I'd pictured, but he was meant to be on of Voldar. Similar thinking , different thinking.

How the Voldarian's look is entirely thanks to Rob.

Inking done very quickly with a fat brush and detail brush (or their digital equivalents).

It's all happening at the moment. Like Paul said, love the loose, flowing inks and the strong colour too. Looks wunnerful! Voldarians at last, prison planet revealed, fab.

Rob Davis said...

Just to clarify - Ian and I aren't working to a secret plan outside the spirit of HUZZAH!! I spoke to him the other day and told him about an idea I had for a bunch Angler fish type aliens with old men's heads instead of lights.

He liked it so much he pinched it ;-)

Paul - I was imagining a world of Voldarians trapped under the Prison planet crust too - in other words the planet is the prisoner!

I wonder how many of us had that notion.

They say Alien is filled with symbolism of the male fear of women giving birth - what the hell does the repeated symbolism in HUZZAH say about us guys?!?!?

Old men carrying wombs, babies made of death, a mother as a tortured eyeless witch, babies hidden inside monsters... Ye gads!!!

Rob Davis said...

Oh and of course bearded fish with foetus minds on stalks emerging from purple tunnels...!!!

Faz Choudhury said...

All this without the aid of drugs. Unless you consider Mr. Kipling's cakes to be a narcotic of some sort...

Paul Peart-Smith said...

Which I do! Sterling work chaps!

I. N. J. Culbard said...

Cheers chaps. Re: purple tunnel, Paul drew it first!

With the ancient fetus (research for that was not nice), I was thinking along the lines of 2001: Space Odyssey but with Arthur C Clarke as the fetus... and mixing in a little Nien Nunb top lip for good measure.

Everyone know the purple tunnel represents.... on second thoughts, I'll keep that to myself:)

I turn my back for a moment and you've all gone deep on me! Oh so very deep!
Great work as ever Ian. Really pushing this "baby" on!
