Extra! Extra! Fresh off the press.......

Keep in mind these are still works in progress.

This is Speed Demon's dad, and a memeber of the deadly and fucking evil super-villain group, The Establishment. I gues I'm calling him Speedmaster right now, but with that costume, Terminal Velocity sounds much better. What do you think?

This is Elemental and he's a member of The Extremists. He's still a work in progress, but I like how he came out so far.
And finally....Silver Dragon:

Again work in progress.

“Imagine all the people living life in peace. You may say I'm a dreamer, but I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one.”
December 8th, 2006, marked the 26th anniversary of the tragic death of a visionary. I can't say anything more original that hasn't already been said about the man, but that I miss him and wish I could've had the chance to meet him. I really think I would have liked him.

Here's a sneak peak at what I've been working on:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
His name is Atomic Man. This is just one of the many original characters I created for myself...and possibly others if interested. He's my universe's answer to Superman.

I created him with Adope Photoshop, with the help of the forms of The Atom, Justic Lords Aquaman and Martian Manhunter, and Captain Atom. Thanks and credit for these forms go out to Cory and his DCU Galleries.

I'm in the process of making more right now, but probably won't get to show them off until next semister, which is next year.

Until next time, Merry Christmas, and Happy new Years'.

Here's a late add-in:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
He's a member of The Extremists, his dad is the deadly Speed Demon. And yes they have the same name, and I'm currently working on that. His father will wind up changing his name to either Speedmaster, Speed King, or Terminal Velocity.
This time thanks go out to Jared M. Jones, since I used his Gravity characters as my main model. Also thanks again to Cory for the use of his Flash's chest symbol.

And here's Blazer:

Yeah this is somewhat based off me. He's the main character of the whole thing.

"Traveling through the E-Bridge......"

Here's a quick little edition of Mr.Morbid's Soapbox of Doom!

I'm not a big fan of censorship. It's that simple. I'm aware that some form of censorship is needed, especially in cases where it's important to protect people and persons from harmful and hateful speech or art, I know that. But there comes a point when it gets too far, and then "censorship" is just a tool used to get someone else's agenda or opinion out at the cost to someone else.

With all that said, I enjoy smoking pot. It makes me feel good. I think about things that I normally don't think about, and examine them in different ways. Now I can respect another person for wanting nothing to do with pot, and be straight-laced. That's your choice, your lifestyle, have at it. But don't ever try to make someone else feel bad, or try to shame them for not living like you do. That's wrong, and it's total bullshit!
So there, 'nuff said.

I'm going to try and scan several or however many drawings and sketches of my work concerning my private little comic universe, so bear with me.
I very critical of my work and don't consider it at all that good, but I still try.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I created my own personal versions of familiar Marvel and DC Comic characters. They'll freely interact with my original characters in whatever adventure I send them through, and see how it goes from there.

A couple of free plugs here:
If you haven't already, I highly going to these websites for animation-inspiried art:

1). http://www.medinnus.com/rt_art/.
This website contains art by Jared M. Jones, and he's got tons and tons of animation-style art about the Avengers, Thunderbolts, Captain America, and more. They're all drawn in the style of those X-Men: Evolution cartoons that used to come on. Great stuff I personally reference myself.
Here's a small sample:

2). Cory's DCU Gallery at http://www.ualberta.ca/~jd8/website_main.html.
This great site features animated art like in the JLU and Batman cartoons. Great stuff.

I can't tell you guys how many pages of characters I've printed and used as reference or straight out traced to use for my own original hoamge characters.

I having the damnest time trying to scan and save my art to show you guys. I'll keep trying though.

By the way don't trust this guy:

"When you're smiling...."

Hello all, I'm finally able to post a new blog since I have access to a computer today. That'll change, since classes for me are over, and holiday break is already rapidly approaching for me. In short, you won't hear from me for awhile, or at least until next year.

When I do come back I plan on changing things up a bit. First I'm going to post new pics of my self, as well as post scripts and story ideas about my long-time very own imaginary comic book series: The Extremists.

I have have had my very own ideas for years, creating characters in my head and drawing poorly what I'd like them to look like. It's something new I'll be trying, and hopefully it'll get me noticed and a foot in the door if they're really well-recieved.

Since I have plenty of time today, I guess I can give you all(or whoever's unfortunate to see this) a little preview of what I'm talking about. Now you all will have to bear with me though. I have a heard time maintaing a steady degree of patience and attention span when trying to be creative. It's a fatal flaw I admit, so I'll try and keep up with this thing as much as possible. If anyone is truly interested, feel free to let me know, and also provide some story ideas of you have any.

My main characters are Blazer, who is me, but better looking and with really cool super-powers; and The Extremists, a team of super-powered people in their early-to-mid 20's.

Now I know this sounds geeky, god do I know! But I figured as the saying goes: "Nothing ventured, nothing gained." Well that and the fact that I'm 25 and still can't point out anything spectacular that I've accomplished yet. I do have to say after a lot of honest nodging and countless "You need to do something with you life, you're 25!"
speeches by my ever faithful lifemate, Heather, I've come to the realization I have to do something.
Of course that, and Savage Dragon-Creator Erik Larsen's inspirational speech about how he created stories of Dragon in his head long before publishing, and picking up where he left off, Photobucket - Video and Image HostingPhotobucket - Video and Image Hosting
really helped inspire me. So here goes nothing!

The following is a brief description of the main characters I created as well as where they've been and where they're going:

1). Blazer:
This guy is basically me, only more confident, has more luck with the ladies, and has very cool super-abilites. He's my Spawn, My Savage Dragon; the one main character of which all the others rotate around. He is a Pyrokinetic, telekinetic,can fly, and has slighly augmented strength. He's also just discovering he can create light-based objects like Green Lantern, only they're flame-derived, kind of like this guy, a GL villain named Effigy:Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Only he doesn't look like that, but you get the idea.
He's the leader and co-founder of The Extremists, seems to struggle with being in the confines of the group; in short he seems to get claustrophobic and up and leaves when he's had to much of being in the group. It's a weird and original dysfunction that just screams storyline material!
Nonetheless, he's the heart and possibly soul of the team, yet his own personal hang-ups could very well break up the team he so loves....and needs.
He's had many loves, and many heartbreaks, but his current love interest is Shape-Shifter, who with the ablility to be anyone or anything she chooses to be, provides plenty of sexual ideas.
She'd look like this I'd imagine:
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Now picture her with blue skin, and that's what Shape-Shifter looks like.
He's currently caught up in a love triangle between his ex, Afterburn, and Shape-shifter.
He and the rest of the team are currently dealing with The Establisment; a nasty group of super-powered villains who are main source of al crime and trouble in my imaginary universe, as well as a traitor in their midst, Silver Dragon, who's secretly spying on the team at the request of his evil uncle Lord Tenno Rashomon.

Here are the other members of The Extremists:

1).Shape-Shifter:
Again she looks like the woman in the last photo, and she's diffinately more than just a pretty face. She's trained as an asssasin courtesy of our US Government; meaning she has a past of being a well-trained CIA and/or Black Ops agent. She can assume any shape, and and impersonate anyone. Just imagine Mystique from the X-Men, only there's a few drawbacks concering her powers that have yet to be seen. Consequences of her past and her powers are forecoming. The team is a haven for her, but it isn't her first super-team. Who the first was will come back to haunt her and her teammates. She's also had a rough relationship with Blazer, as they both have had their ups and downs, breakups and makeups; there relationship is supposed to be solid now based on all that has happened in the last fews weeks. The only problem is Afterburn still carries a torch for Blazer, what will she do about this?

2). Silver Dragon:
In my mind he's the necessary person in the team that always starts shit. He's not afraid to speak his mind, or let you know if you're wrong. He's head-strong, impulsive, and very powerful. He's like an amalgam of Magneto, Quicksilver, and Namor. Not power-wise, but personality-wise. He does have similiar powers to Magneto though. He needs the team more than he lets on, but will he ever realize it in time? He's a co-founder of the Extremists, having been on many missions with the tream. After leaving awhile ago, he recently came back, but only due to the behest of his Uncle Tenno Rashomon, plans on using his naive nephew as a weapon and spy against his very friends.
Silver Dragon's look is a mix-up of Namor's black 70's costume and Wiccan, from Young Avengers.
It's a cross between these:Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting

I swear I'll try and post how I drew his, and the rest of the team's costumes.
There's more like Kid Thunder, who's like a more modern take on the Billy Batson/Captain Marvel character, Prysm, who lookes like The Silver Surfer and Void from WILDc.a.t.s. love -child, Afterburn, who likes like the current Marvel Girl:Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Kind of like this , but wih a blue and white color scheme, and different costume obviously.
And others like Speed Demon, who's dad is one of the deadly members of The Establishment. His costume kind of looks like this as far as color scheme goes:Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
and there's also Elemental, who controls the earth. His powers are a cross between Kwame from Captain Planet, and Jack Hawksmoor. Interestingly enough his first costume I drew, makes him look just like Kwame, complete with the same Arsenio Hall-hairstyle and planet logo on the front of his costume. Did I mention he's black? just making sure.
There's also a new member who I based off of seeing this cover:Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I figured wouldn't it be cool if there was person who got his super-powers based off different t-shirts? Yes I know that was the whole premise in a nutshell of The Great American Hero, but still. So that's them. There will be more, as I give profiles on the bad guys, me takes on my universe's JLA and Avengers. I called them The Elite and AmeriSquad.
The Elite are my JLA equivalent, and AmeriSquad are obviously a government run and own Avengers.And finally, I had to have my back tooth taken out yesteday. I had an Abscessed Tooth that needed to be removed. Apparently the filing feel out awhile ago, and this the caused all the pain I've been feeling for awhile.
Photobucket - Video and Image HostingYeah it kind of looked like that. Of course the bottom part was broken off while the dentist was removing it. Thank God she shot the hell out my mouth with numbing medicine! And yes it sucks not eating what I really want to for at least a couple days, but it's worth it in the end. And oh yeah, I saved the tooth!!!!!!
Hey I told you all I was morbid!

Wednesday, November 29, 2006

Another day, another post. I'm still getting used to the code behind all this, especially since I'm used to dealing with the coded language of myspace.com. I'll figure it yet .

I don't know about you, but I absolutely love, LOVE Adult Swim!
They feature grown-up or more mature cartoons, that are geared towards grown-ups or the uhh, mostly more mature-aged audience. Yeah basically little Billy shouldn't be watching this shit, or else he'll want to bulid his own Meth Lab or drink a 40 and shoot things! Not that is a particularly bad thing, but, yeah and this is why I don't have kids right now.
Anyways every sunday I make sure that I tape shows from 10:30-2:00am, that way I'm guarendamnteed to see some really funny shit!
These are the shows I most look forwards to and you should watch them as well:

1). Aqua Teen Hunger Force.

Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This show comes on at 10:30pm. It's weird, contains a talking shake, box of fries, and the aptly named Meatwad, and their human neighnbor, Carl.
All you really need to know is that these three get involved in funny-ass, screwed-up situations. You'll learn new words to impress your friends, and never look a McDonalds menu the same way again.

2). Squidbillies.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
This caption should really be enough as far as explaining this series goes, and damn is it really as funny as it looks! I truly learned new words such as "Stealitization" and other messed up stuff.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
I highly advise watching this if you're in the mood to say "I knew the south was made up of dumb hicks!"
Squidbillies comes on around 12:00am.

3). Frisky Dingo.
Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting
If you're looking for a funny and refreshing take on superheroes, and looking to laugh at the absurdity of the whole concept, then you should watch this show. It's pretty much a National Lapoon on superheroes and villains, and their relationship to each other in general, and making for some truly entertaining viewing.
Look for this little gem around 12:30am.

And finally....

4). The Venture Brothers.
Photobucket - Video and Image HostingNot only does this funny show parody the whole Johhny Quest genre, but also Marvel and DC comic characters. Look for who gets pariodied in each new episode. Funny stuff I swear.
Each new show starts around 1:00am.

Also check out these funny ass shows:
Robot Chicken and Family Guy.
And do go and check out adultswim.com, where you'll find games, downloads, and bunches of free shit! Especially free downloadable episodes of all these shows and more. I promise you won't regret it.

And now for the image of the day courtesy of Robot Chicken:

Damn that looks like it hurts!

This is the first ever-get-it-while-it's-hot edition of DB's Universe!
Along the way, I hope to enlighten and corrurpt as many people as possible. Yeah it's gonna be that damn good! A quick intro on me I love Comics, especially DC and Marvel comic characters, so don;t be surprised if that topic is brought up alot. I'm also morbid, and enjoy black humor. Just putting that out there. I'm also a big fan of classic rock and all things Pink Floyd, Beatles, Led Zepplin, and the like. I bring up alot of different topics, so don't worry about having to read about the same shit all the time.
Anyways here's a little food for thought; I was watching ESPN's The Top Five Reasons You Can't Blame..... Sunday afternoon, and I loved it! Now I'm not a really a big fan of sports. I know that may come as a big surprise to many out there, especially since loving and appreciating sports is supposed to be in all men's dna, but not mine. I used to watch it when I was little in the 80's, and occasionaly I check on the teams I used to root for back then every now and again, but for the most part I could care less. Hey I prefer Pro-Wrestling over those boring spectacles, so there! Anyways I watched the marathon the the ESPN Classic channel was showing, and I actually enjoyed watching it! The basic premise of the show for those not in the know about it is that it showcases a much-debated sports topic like why you can't blame Mike Tyson for losing to Buster Douglas or why you can't blame Kobe Bryant for the breakup of the Lakers. Stuff like that, while about sports, is facinating to me. I'm a big fan of History, especially history behind any subject I take a fancy to, so this show really appeals to me. So I started thinking why isn't there a Top Five Reasons You Can't Blame... blog or segment for comic characters? So I'll personally start one and see how it goes from there. Suggestions and feedback are more than welcome.

And now for your picture of the day:

I love how comic book writers used to play "Let's see how far we can push the comic code." And no she's not talking about my dong!
