SAILOR MOON by Melanie Schultz

Hi. I've been a fan of this blog for a while and am glad to now be contributing to it. Sailor Moon as my first spitballer makes this first post extra special. Sailor Moon was some of the first fan art I drew. I'd tape Sailor Moon off of YTV then I would pause the vhs and I try to draw Sailor Moon (actually it was usually Sailor Venus) before the pause stopped and the video automatically started playing again. I originally wanted to make her a bit more pouty because she was constantly whining but this is how she ended up.

Sailor Moon rocks!  That's all I have to say.

SAILOR MOON by David Cutler

I almost didn't post this because I t came out a little too similar to Meaghan Carter's piece, but then I remembered my trustee motto: "Screw Meaghan". That's sort of my motto anyway, I had to clean it up a little.

I was an un-ironic Sailor Moon fan during its original run, gender demographics be damned. I remember wishing they'd make proper action figures rather than the terrifying noseless dolls that Irwin toys put out instead. It was like the 90s version of being a Brony, I guess.

I'll always have fond memories of Sailor Moon, wish I'd done her more justice here.

  She is the one named Sailor Moon!  Back from a little bit of a break (not really, I have been fairly busy) To post some Sailor Love.  I hope you all like it!

SAILOR MOON by Adam Gorham

Fighting evil moonlight, winning love by daylight...
This may come as a shock, but truth be told I was never into Sailor Moon. So this weeks entry was something of a challenge, because apart from striking poses in front of dazzling backgrounds, I was never sure what Sailor Moon--or any of the Sailor Scouts--actually did.

But when I thought real hard, I did recall she had a wand... or a scepter. Or something. And she and the other Sailor Scouts had to collect all seven of the magic pokEballs, elsewise Tuxedo Mask would continue to turn into a giant female panda when splashed with water.

Then it was all clear. I had to draw Sailor Moon in her classic Super Saiyan pose. Voila!

Mark, ink and watercolour on 9"x12" bristol vellum. The original art is up for sale in gallery.

SAILOR MOON by Ken House

I have fond memories of Sailor Moon, which would play on YTV during my lunch break in third grade.


SAILOR MOON by Andrea Scott

Sailor Andrea Says!

I couldn't pass up Sailor Moon week and not draw my favourite couple in the series- Sailor Neptune and Sailor Uranus! Drawn in their Eternal Sailor(ish) costumes, since I am a huge Sailor Moon nerd.  I can't wait for the 20th anniversary reboot, even though that makes me feel, well, ancient.

Thanks for the guest post Andrea!!!

SAILOR MOON by Selena Goulding

Woo!  I've never drawn any of the Sailor Senshi, nor was a I Sailor Moon fan growing up... I'm not really sure why...  They are really addictive to draw!!!

Sailor Mercury for you guys, since no one specified I had to draw Miss Moon.  I'm definitely going to be drawing more when I get my tablet fixed!

SAILOR MOON by meaghan carter!

I don't usually have all that much to say about my posts here. Today is not the case. I had loads of fun with this week's choice. I've been looking for an excuse to draw Sailor Moon for forever now. I love Magical School Girls, and I think the studio knocked that first costume out of the park with the design. Sailor Moon Says! - Meaghan

ROBIN by Adam Gorham

The Boy Wonder!
My Robin is up!

For once that's not a sexual euphemism.

This one is a little rough for my liking, but I'm scrambling to keep up with the outstanding work of my fellow Spitballers!

I decided to go with Dick Grayson's classic look, with contemporary drawing style. This was done in ink pen and markers on 9"x12" bristol vellum. It'll be up for sale on my blog soon: A Princely Dreadful.

GRENDIZER by meaghan carter!

Super Golden Slicer Strike!

GRENDIZER by Adam Gorham

Grendizer is a character I'm largely unfamiliar with and that made this entry to Spitballin' a fun challenge. I'm not even sure he's known for shooting his fist like a torpedo, but really, what good giant robot isn't?

GRENDIZER by David Cutler

Do not ask me why UFO Robot Grendizer is playing an axe-shaped guitar. I do not know why UFO Robot Grendizer is playing an axe-shaped guitar.

This is Daniel Wong's first time choosing the weekly Spitball theme, so it seems like a good time to welcome him aboard. He's showing us up all over the place and I hope it continues until the end of time.

GRENDIZER by Daniel Wong

Grendizer by Daniel Wong
Since I suggested this weeks Spitballin' subject, I figure I should be the first to post.

Mazinger, Mazinger Z (Grand Mazinger) and Grendizer are classic manga and anime of the 70's and prototypes for all the bad ass giant robots and mecha that followed (Gundam, Macross to name a few.) Being a child of that era, these have a special place in my heart.

This piece was sketched and inked digitally.  I didn't have time to do a full colour rendering, so I opted for a quick half-tone colour effect, which imho gives it a nice retro feel.  I hope you like it!

SWAMP THING by meaghan carter!

Back from computer hell hiatus, here's Swamp Thing to cover you in gross bugs and stuff!

SWAMP THING by Ryan Bullard

So I'm a little late with Swampy this week, I just didn't have as much time this week as I would've liked. So what, wanna fight about it?

When I think of Swamp Thing, I don't really think of the comics character, instead I get all nostalgic about late night movies, junk food and vhs tapes. Swamp Thing brings back memories of staying up late watching campy, pulpy, schlock like Creepshow, Tales from the Darkside, and John Carpenter movies and many many others. In those way-back times when you had to rent them or be lucky enough to catch late night broadcasts. The Swamp Thing movies are pretty damn awful, but in that deliciously bad way, and I'm positive ol' Swampy had a hand in my endless love for misunderstood monsters and creatures of the night.

Halloween is right around the corner, and it's a great time to dig out old monster movies. Maybe give Swamp Thing another go after being lost in the bog for 30 years. I'm sure it'll be much more fun on an old fuzzy vhs though.
