So I have now crossed the line of fifty pinups. Definitely doing better than the first few – I reeeeally think I should be doing these on better paper. Some bristol or something – the mid-tone sketchbook is beautiful but kind of absorbent for the markers. So I’ll get to that once I am done with this book. For reals.
The Guardians of the Galaxy!
No, really. Bug, Mantis, Moondragon and Adam Warlock. Bug is kinda like Spider-man, without webs, but with a spear. Mantis is one of the greatest martial artists in the Marvel universe (respect). Moondragon is one of the greatest martial artists / psychics / masters in all human endeavours and Adam Warlock is the saviour that comes out of a creepy cocoon to save whole swathes of the universe from super bad shit. He also looks fabulous in crimson booty shorts and tunic with gold accent belt and bracers. I should write these like the red carpet interview things at the Oscars.
“Moondragon! Moondragon, who are you wearing?”
“I am rocking a monochromatic sling thong with matching boots and gloves. Also, a popped collar on a swoopy cape.”
“What about your hair?”
“I traded it for supreme knowledge of kung fu and telepathy.”
Aw dang I meant to make Mantis’ hair more black. Next time, Mantis. Next time.
