This tagline perfectly describes the series as a whole
Join Chris Lockhart, Miss M, Richard Rehder and myself as we discuss the heresy of an Indiana Jones reboot, dissect the new Fantastic Four trailer and dive into a nostalgic look at the 90s X-Men cartoon and the film franchise that followed!
This past Christmas I received several markers as gifts that I've been itching to test out, especially since some of them were very specific shades.
I wanted to do an illustration of Elsa since I had requested many of these colors with her in mind. I worked from this promotional image. While I would have liked to have made something original, I was more concerned with coloring rather than composing at the time.

I bought an "Eggshell" Prismacolor marker to better match her platinum blonde hair. I also finally got my chance to try out Copics with a new "Skin White" marker that looked to match her pale tone more so than the "Light Peach" Prismacolor I had been using previously.

Originally I was going to go for a more humorous set up involving Ash's possessed hand teaming up with Thing from The Addams Family, but instead I opted for a more rubbery representation of Bruce Campbell's face so that I could experiment with my new red paint pen and blend it with some grayscale markers to create a more realistic shade of blood.
In retrospect, if I was going to distort the face as much as did, a bright red poster paint blood probably would have worked better and come off as funnier. Sketch ya' later!
