While we’re already in favor of hot women getting naked and slathering themselves in paint, it’s also really cool when they can make themselves look like actual comic book pages! Check out the really stunning work of artist Kay Pike as she transformers herself into popular Marvel and DC comic book characters! According to her Deviant Art page, Pike is also a talented costume and prop maker. She’s a self described “varied” artist who has also just added balloon animals to her repertoire. Balloon Animals! Groovy.
Below I’ve posted a time lapse of her Lady Deadpool make-up process. Its an incredibly cool to watch as she self applies the make up to eventually become a comic book page. Check out more of Pike’s work at the links above, but also follow her on Facebook.
I wonder if we could get he to do a The Tick body paint?
Featuring Robotech T-shirts and Marvel Fan Animation!
Good morning El Moochadores. Among the many amazing things bobbing on the surface of the internet today are these two items. First; Check out the above t-shirt from 80stees.com featuring the Robotech Defense Force logo. The bill the shirt as “simple” but in reality this is awesome. Also, for those of you who don’t already know, I love Robotech and I have a birthday in July. Anyways, the t-shirt is selling for $20.00 and comes in a colored version as well. there’s even a Zentradi logo t-shirt for sale on the site which would also make a great gift for someone who has a birthday in July. ‘just saying.
Dancing Baby Groot Stop Motion: Guardians of the Galaxy
Take a gander at this fun fan animation from Kyle Roberts and Reckless Abndnmnt Pictures. Through the magic of stop motion animation we get to re-live the cutest moment of Guardians of the Galaxy that is in now way getting kind of annoying. I’m just saying. I like this video. I kind of liked the movie, but any more “dancing Groot” stuff after this, and I feel like I’m going to start kicking at every potted plant I come across. Let’s move on world.
Good morning El Moochadores! For today’s Morning Moo I found some great pieces of Marvel art on Deviant Art. The sample above is entitled Genius, Billionaire… and was produced by French illustrator Léa Chaillaud (aka: Five-Oclock). I’ve posted a few other samples of her work below, but hit the link to see much more of her work. You can also purchase prints of her art at Society6.com.
Featuring Fan Made Action Figures and Geek Art Postcards!
‘morning El Moochadores. My apologies for the lack of post lately, but the day job keeps rearing it’s ugly head. Maybe I should just marry rich. Are there any beautiful, wealthy, single women out there that want a late thirties geek blogger to take care of? If so, my e-mail is on the sidebar. Anyways…
Today we’ve got some very (VERY) cool looking custom made toys, and a gallery show featuring geeky postcards to place we really want to go to!
Realistic Toys by NightT47
Via Make: Check out these ultra realistic miniature sculptures by Deviant Art contributor Xiang Zhang (aka: NightT47). According to the make article; these are 1:6 scale models from popular DC and Marvel movies like the Dark Knight and Captain America. There’s a lot more on his Deviant art page (hit the link above) and it’s amazing how detailed the work is. Check out a small sample below.
Gallery 1988: Postcard Correspondence!
From March 20th to April 4th 2015, Gallery 1988 will be showing some incredible postcard art based on artist “favorite pop-culture adventures.” All of these are really fun to look at and I think you can even buy actual postcard versions of the art at the gallery or at their online store. Check out a small (very small) sample of the art being shown, but also hit the link above to see much more!
Featuring a cool new gaming trailer and Hulkbuster collectible figure!
Good morning El Moochadores. Today we got a bunch of great stuff to share with all of you. Stuff like a giant Iron Man toy, a cool video game, and this helpful little link:
Take a gander…
If you’re wondering where you’re local comic store is at then check out Comic Book Resources (CBR) Findacomicshop.com. I don’t know how long this has been around, I just found out about it this morning, but damn is this cool. Thanks to this niffty link I just discovered that there’s at least two more comic shops in my area that I never knew about. Now my wallet can be totally clear of all that pesky money that sometimes collects in there. Anyways, if you’re wonder where your local comic shop is, hit the link, enter your zip, and (BAM!) comic shop.
1:6 Hulkbuster Figure
Toy collectors and Avengers fans will love this one. Check out the Iron Man Hulkbuster 1:6 scale figure from Hot Toys. The figure is based on the armor used by Iron Man in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron movie. The figure stands 21 inches tall and has a smaller Mark XLIII bust inside of it. Oh, and the eyes light up. G’ah… keen. Check out a few sample images below, but go visit the Hot Toys link above for more information and photos.
Ori and the Blind Forest
Finally, I came across this promotional video for a really cool looking new game from Gamespot called Ori and the Blind Forest. Okay, so I’m not sure what a blind forest is, but the game creators claim that this is a “Metroidvania” (like Metroid or Castlevania) action adventure. I’ve posted the preview video below along with an interview between Alexa Ray Corriea sits down with Mark Coates of Microsoft about the game play. According tot the interview the game should be available today. You can get more information at their website, oriblindforest.com.
With Marvel/DC Mash-up art, Walking Dead Facts, and Swords. SWORDS!!!
Good damn morning, El Moochadores. I hope you all slept well. I didn’t. There’s a very loud owl that has taken up residence outside my bedroom window. I use to like owls. Anyways, today we skimmed the top layer of the internet and got some great fan art, an infographic, and some Walking Dead stuff.
10 Iconic Swords… Except Excalibur. WTF?
Via Geek X Girls: Check out this cool infographic from Robert Shaw a UK based illustrator and animator. Wait, the dude is from England and he left out Excalibur!?! They even made a movie, called Excalibur! All the same though (oh, and it was Geek X Girls that first pointed out the glaring lack of Excaliburs on this graph) pretty solid art and information. I think that if I were to heft just one of these swords I would some how feel manly-er.
Top 10 Facts – The Walking Dead
Via Geeks are Sexy: More zombie stuff. Yay. Okay, so, I hate zombie stuff, but yet I love “behind the scenes” TV and movie stuff. I’m feeling a little conflicted here, and tired. Fucking owl. Anyways, check out Top 10 Facts: The Walking Dead from youtubers Top 10 Memes. I wonder if the blue meth caused the zombies. Is that what happens to a blue meth addict after Walter died? Think about it…
DC/Marvel Mash-ups from Eric Guzman!
Via Geek-art.net: Professional illustrator, Eric Guzman has created these incredible DC/Marvel mash-ups (or Amalgams… which, I think means “mash-up”). I’ve posted a few below but you can see more of these amalgams (that’s a real word, right?) on his Deviant Art page.
Good Morning El Moochadores! Heh. Check out the Spongebob poster above. I have no idea if this is a real promotion or a fan made poster, but either way, brilliant. Anyways, this morning we got Avenger images, a Youtube studio in New York, and Superhero Skins!
YouTube Opens a New Production Studio in Manhattan
Via the NPR: looks like Youtube will be helping independent creators with productions by allowing users access to this new facility. According to the NPR article, Youtubers with more than 5,000 subscribers will be able to use three production studios and something called “the brand lab.” In a quote about the new facility, Lance Podell (YouTube’s global head of YouTube Spaces) said:
I think a playground is a great way to describe… My first dream is that … folks respond to it and immediately show up saying, ‘I’ve got my thinking cap on. I’ve brought three other creators I know, and we have a really great idea and we’d like to try it here
The article also said that Youtube has invested in studios in Los Angeles, London and Tokyo.
Via Geek X Girls: Check out this new Super Hero Skins infographic from Beauty Flash. Unfortunately the graphic fails to tell us how Wolverine retains such smooth and supple outer layer.
Avenger: Age of Ultron Images
Via Marvel.com: Marvel has just released about a dozen new images from the upcoming Avengers Sequel. I’ve only posted a small sample below (I got to run!), so hit the link above to see more images and information about the film!
Good morning El Moochadores and fellow Brethren Moo! For this Morning’s Moo we got a great mix of new Lego stuff, indie gear, and guitar strumming karate. Very cool.
Lego’s SHIELD Helicarrier Set!
I first read about this on The Wall Street Journal, but many of the images, and the video below, I found on the website Laughing Squid. Anyways… Lego just announced that it will be releasing a new, Helicarrier play set and Avengers mini-figures! According to the Wall Street Journal, the set will have 2,996 pieces and will retail for about $349.99. The set will also come with twelve “micro-figures” (the little Lego dudes) including Nick Fury, Hawkeye, Captain America, Iron Man and eight agents of SHEILD. Okay. So, I need new eye glasses and dental work, but I guess that shit’ll have to wait.
Check out a promo video below along with some sample images of the set.
New Steam Crow Patch!
One of our favorite indie creators has just released this niffty looking new patch! Check out Steam Crow’s new four inch patch featuring the classic Steam Crow logo. The patch is 100% stitch with an iron back and can totally be yours for a meager $8.50. Also, go check out their online shop for more cool prints, stickers, buttons, and much more. Spooky cute.
Finally… Flaming Karate Guitar
Also via Laughing Squid: Today, bad stuff may happen. However, if (and when) life get’s you down, just return to this post and watch a man, in a karate gi, chop through flaming boards (with his bare hands) while playing the guitar!!! Watch that, and just know that things will get better because… Somewhere out there, there is a man, in a karate gi, chopping through flaming boards (with his bare hands) while playing the guitar!!!
Via Deviant Art: Check out these brilliant comic book covers by Brazilian (Brasil!) artist, Felipe Massafera.
