A couple more from the Whitechapel Remake / Remodel challenges. First; Fantomah

And next; Professor Zomax – who I hadn’t yet got round to posting up here, and whom it transpires was an enemy of the above “defender of the jungle.”

For Whitechapel’s Remake / Remodel of Six Gun Gorilla. Dropping a lot of the back story to make it a cheap Donkey Kong gag.

There’s something satisfying about having a tangible product arrive after a whole load of intangible design work.

This is the second time I’ve worked Gris (Third, possibly, if you count Um Di Um, although… I’m drifting). Once again her album’s getting rave reviews. It’s a blend of Gambian and Scottish traditions that you can order here.

Jenny Greenteeth of Whitechapel

Another from the Remake / Remodel challenge over on Whitechapel, although this one I didn’t have time to colour up before the finish so I present the final version here.

The challenge this time was Jenny Greenteeth, a river hag with a penchant for drowning children;

“You will update. You will recontextualise. You will use your tasty brainbits as well as your scribbledy pens of power.

Bethunk as follows: how does a slime-titted water-devil fit into whatever passes for contemporary folklore? Is she the same old hag of yesteryear, now living a 21st century life? Is she keeping herself to herself, or using her unique skills (of, um, drowning children) to get by? Has she found a new niche, as a Modern Monster?”

For some reason I thought of underage binge drinking and alcopops. I didn’t find out she was also called Ginny Greenteeth until I was well underway.

 

It’s Mr James Hancox!

Sekhmet of Whitechapel

Over on the Whitechapel forums they run a weekly art challenge thing called Remake / Remodel. This week’s is Sekhmet, an Egyptian deity, and just too tempting to pass up.

Remake / Remodel of Sekhmet

The brief was basically to take take the Goddess and Remake / Remodel for modern comics. Given the subject and how open the potential was, I really think I should’ve gone weirder.

On the other hand… given that I’m already considering using this piece for a post on the hell of multiple choice, it’s probably best I just got it out there.
