Finally starting to unpack my things and have a really long way to go.
I wish we were allowed to paint the walls dark like I have in every house I’ve ever lived, I can’t stand white paint.
Luckily I may own enough things to completely obscure every inch of them.
I was inspired by bogleech's post about “a film about a bunch of aging B-movie monster “actors” who would all be represented by different effects” and decided to draw up some designs for a cartoon animation film for da kidz
- The Martian Brain Crab: A grey-scale stop-motion model of a mind-controlling alien from outer space.
- The Monster of Malamurte Falls: A fish-human represented by a man in a rubber suit, animated to look as though he was filmed in black and white and badly colorized.
- Colossasaur: A hand-puppet dinosaur rendered in weird wiggly 3-D. That’s his entire body; his lower half is just always off the bottom of the screen, no matter how weird and perspective-breaking it looks.
- "Her": A “killer mosquito-bat” who flies around on super-obvious strings, controlled by an actual puppeteer somewhere off-camera.
The four are forced to come out of retirement to defeat the forces of good CG, who want to take over Hollywood (and the world!) with their updated special effects.
I might design the villain at some point. I’m imagining a lame takeoff on the Xenomorph, like every real mainstream movie monster nowadays.
These are almost eerily correct to my old, lost designs.
Although in the actual movie the puppet dinosaur would look extra terrible. Maybe even degrade in quality until he’s just a sock in some scenes.
He’d get better again though it’s just that he has off days.
Wait what the hell is that room way in the back on the ground floor?
Did I miss something in the last 25 years?
Good fucking god Frank Grimes was right they live in a ten room palace how did it just not occur to me it was that huge I don’t think I’ve ever even set foot in a house with that many rooms plus a basement
What’s that you want an anime created by a woman who fills it with male characters as bluntly fetishized as the women in every other anime?
Well it’s called Papuwa
But you’d better also appreciate that these are main characters
If that isn’t something for everyone, what is
So my income is only barely adequate to sustain me in our apartment and I’m thinking about trying the patreon thing, but I’m not sure for what.
Would people be interested enough in steadier, more expansive Mortasheen updates to be patreon worthy?
We would be talking at least two new colored monsters a month, and depending on response, a whole lot of potential side content. Sketches, bonus creatures and characters beyond the monsters themselves, expanded story information and specs, size charts, mini-comics, who knows. Maybe all those things, provided the days worth of extra work will help me eat and own clothes that aren’t old enough to talk.
