Playing with skeletons.

With all the robot-themed work going on these days, I’ve felt very starved for the spacesuit stuff that I was working on earlier in the year.  So, here’s a fun one I did to just let my creativity wander around for a bit.  Whether it was Ghost Rider, He-Man, BPRD, or an old Scooby-Doo episode, there’s always been something both terrifying and amazingly cool about the floating skull character.  I love any design with that particular mystery-feature.  I also love the idea of putting it in a spacesuit.  Maybe it’s a ghost and the suit keeps the whole thing together, maybe the suit is containing something, keeping it from getting out, or maybe it’s just some awesome piece of technology putting on a show or hiding the real wearer.

Riding again.

You may recognize this drawing from an earlier post.  I just did a quick color-pass with Copics to add a little zest.  I mean it when I say “quick”, ’cause I know it’s not perfect.  My favorite thing about Ghost Rider 2099 is that the flames around his head are supposed to be holographic.

Ghost Rider 2099

In case you were interested, here’s another drawing of the BEST Ghost Rider concept, Ghost Rider 2099.  I still think this was the best version the publisher ever came up with, and fun to draw too…

Sad lil’ lost ‘bot.

Remember Ghost Rider 2099?!  It was awesome.. well, at least for the first 3 issues or so.  However, it started out with fantastic art, and I absolutely loved the initial design of the GR warbot.  I’ve always meant to come back and just have some of my own sketches of that particular robot in my sketchbook.  So, here’s one I did the other day.  I’ve never been into the whole paranormal aspect of Ghost Rider, and GR 2099 went in a totally different direction, involving the internet, paramilitary operations, and government conspiracies.  I think if Ghost Rider now had more of what Ghost Rider 2099 had back then (this series came out in the early 90’s), I’d be picking it up.
