CELL by Ryan Bullard


I never understood why everyone seemed to love this show back when it was big. My friends at school would gossip about it and doodle all the big haired dudes, but I couldn't stand watching it. It seemed just so stupid and all the characters looked so damned ugly. But I've never been one for anime anyway, so I doubt I ever gave it a chance to begin with. Or it just sucked..

Anyway, my Dragon guy is Cell or Imperfect Cell. I chose his cooler bug like version, cause well, it's cooler. When he evolves, or whatever, he just becomes another stupid looking anime guy with a goofy hat. Bugs are like, way better man. Here he is ready to unleash his disgusting, homicidal, inflating foreskin tail of doom.

PICCOLO by Michael Walsh


All I have to say is that I have an undying love for this show. Piccolo was one of my first and favourite anti heroes, the guy blew up the moon for petes sake.

BOWIE by Ken House


You thought I died alone, a long, long time ago? Oh no, not me, I've been right here in my room drawing glam rockers.

Doing this was almost as fun as seeing the great entries that came in prior. Also, because I know you care, my top five Bowie songs in order are Teenage Wildlife, Man Who Sold The World, Andy Warhol, Let's Dance and It's No Game.

DAVID BOWIE by Michael Walsh



Gotta love Bowie. I was so torn between Ziggy Stardust and The Goblin King but ultimately I just couldn't resist drawing spiders on mars.

DAVID BOWIE by David Cutler


That's pretty freaky, Bowie. I hear that space is a pretty freaky place.

I think I got too much Lady Gaga in my Ziggy Stardust. Or Jem and the Holograms. Ah, well.

STAR FOX by David Cutler


Unlike the rest of these kids, my Star Fox nostalgia dates back to the SNES original and the Super FX chip, which, at age eight, I truly believed to be the pinnacle of technology or something. After the Super Nintendo era I was a Playstation kid, so I didn't get to play Star Fox 64 and Smash Bros at any length until the early 2000s when a friend at university had an N64 in his dorm room. Fox was a Smash Bros favorite of mine until Falco came along in Smash Bros Melee with an even cheaper down-spike, and supplanted him in my heart.

Quick and dirty colours on this as I'm quite lazy and my tablet has seen better days.

STAR FOX by Ryan Bullard



I never actually played Star Fox for 64, so I don't really know much about him, but I did play Super Mario Smash Brothers, and Star Fox was always awesome in that game. So yeah, here's Star Fox.

STAR FOX by Selena Goulding


Me and Star Fox, we go way back.

STARFOX by Ken House

It's Fox McCloud, hero of Starfox 64, scourge of Smash Bros. Melee! He's holding the hexagonal thing that I keep wanting to call Aegis Reflector, probably about to dart forward at an unfair speed and spike some poor Bowser off of a floating island.

STAR FOX by Michael Walsh


When I was a kid my parents wouldn't actually buy me video games, but they would rent them for me. I used to rent Star Fox 64 over and over again trying to figure out how to take the difficult path through the game. All in all I bet they spent way more renting this game for me then it would have cost to actually buy it.  Such a great game.

Also, I have the black and white version up on my Tumblr.

CATWOMAN by David Cutler

Growing up I used to assume Catwoman was only ever as popular as she was because she was the first to get to a really good super-name. Like 70 years of history and she never had a very good or iconic costume until Darwyn Cooke. That is, unless you count the 60s TV series or the 1992 Burton Batman Returns movie--Selina Kyle's stitched together halloween duds were just about the only good thing about that flick, but they were awesome enough to carry every scene she was in (Pfeiffer helped, too, I'm sure).

Anyway, I like Catwoman a lot now that she has a good costume, which the other Spitballers illustrated quite nicely. The colours on this are more basic than I originally intended, but sometimes you just gotta hock these spitballs out and move on with your life.

CATWOMAN by Gerard de la Costa

Since Selina Kyle is so sleek and shiny, she deserved a sleek and shiny treatment. This is my take on her inspired by Patrick Nagel. Don't remember who he is? Go find your copy of Rio by Duran Duran on vinyl -- that's his handiwork on the record jacket.

And I hear some of you young'uns asking: "What's a record jacket?"
To which I answer: "Piss off!"

CATWOMAN by Selena Goulding


Or, SELINA by Selena.  It's fun to have an iconic super villainess who shares my name.

CATWOMAN by Michele Assarasakorn


This week's guest post is from local hero Michele Assarasakorn, and yes, that's a real last name. Michele's a fellow MTM Animation School alumni, and now works as an illustrator and concept artist to the stars in downtown Toronto. In her spare time she likes to bake and laugh at Dane Cook. Fantastic piece, probably done inside of five seconds, because she's an unstoppable monster. Check out her sketch blog if you dare.

CATWOMAN by Michael Walsh


Love me some Catwoman. Great pic by Gerard. Can't wait to see all the action this week. Check out the Inks on my newfangled Tumblr account. Had a lot of fun with this one.

CATWOMAN by Neil Tavares

I didn't think i could get this done, but I kinda wanted to. I didn't want to miss two weeks in a row, and I have been trying to do some more speed painting. did it in about 30 mins on lunch.
Used the wonderful http://angelloffyre.deviantart.com/ for reff. Take a look. she is a fantastic sculptor, both in 3D and clay, as well as an awesome drawer!
hope you enjoy.

FRANKENSTEIN by Ryan Bullard




I don't really know too much about what's going on with DC comics and their 18th overhaul of their universe, and the little I do know seems ,um, not so great. Then again, I've never been a big DC fan, so I hope fans like the changes. Anyway, here's one of the few DC characters I like outside of Batman and Kirby's stuff. I would totally pick up some Frankenstein awesomeness.

KID FLASH by Selena Goulding



I love Kid Flash, but I completely disapprove of this costume, the end.

BATGIRL by Gerard de la Costa

Honestly, I'm the worst when it comes to reading continuity in comics and have no idea what's going on with the new DC reboots ( I just end up buying the trade paperbacks months down the line for way cheap ;-D ). Research for the new Batgirl has taught me that it's still Babs Gordon under the cowl and she CAN WALK! Also, her tailor for the new costume went crazy with the bat symbols.

WONDER WOMAN by Ken House


The DCnU launches this week, so here's my favorite super character, the politically conscious earth mother/rage-fueled spartan, Wonder Woman!

-Ken

RED ROBIN by David Cutler

And the new Red Robin goes bob, bob, bobbin' along!

As of August 31st the old DC Universe is no more, and here at Spitballin' we're celebrating/mourning the transition by drawing some of the characters in their new costumes and what have you. After Aquaman (yes), Tim Drake's my favorite hero in the DCU, and I have to admit his DCnU look is going to be an adjustment. It seems like every time they re-do Tim's costume it gets less Robin Hood and more little robin redbreast. First he lost the green, then he got a feather bottomed cape, then a beak, and now he's borrowed Hawkman's wing harness. In 5 years time he'll be lobbing baby blue Robin Egg bombs.
