remember when i drew this
manga studio 4: the most byzantine drawing program ever made?
it is probably a bad idea to try to teach myself manga studio while also starting this comic but…
Another thing that makes sense only if you were in Sweatshop when I vowed to make this happen

I WILL BE STREAMING RAZORBACK, TONIGHT @6PM PACIFIC STANDARD TIME
Razorback is a classic of Ozploitation horror cinema, the story of two men’s quests to avenge the deaths of their loved ones at the jaws of a giant, mutant, feral pig.
What’s amazing about Razorback is both the directing and cinematography. Both are remarkable beyond belief for this type of film. It absolutely feels like a high-end “A” movie that cut no corners nor spared any expense. At the helm for this impressive feat was Russell Mulcahy, who has directed everything from Queen music videos to the Dale Earnhardt story to an upcoming 3D horror flick titled Bait. He also directed one other little film of note that you may have heard of – Highlander.
Directed by Russel Mulcahy, who also directed Highlander, the surreal cinematography and oddly serious undertone of Razorback is what elevates it from a simple smash-n-grab monster movie to something worthy of its current cult status. The pig itself is a splendid, full scale animatronic model, the sets are ruddy-dusted outback masterpieces, and the acting is far better than it has any right to be.
Why TF2 fans may be interested: I suspect the aesthetics of Razorback strongly informed a lot of set design and palette decisions in TF2, and the character of the vengeful, sharp-shooting old pig hunter (played by an oddly authentic Bill Kerr) is basically an elderly Sniper.
He even lives in a van.
I’ll be streaming this on Sweatshop tomorrow at 6pm PST.
Content warning: blood n’ gore, attempted rape, multiple deaths by pig (including a child), sadism, possible animal cruelty (some of the scenes with pigs + dogs are a little questionable).
I’ve started modeling for a drawing group that meets twice a week literally across the hall from my apartment, which is ACES. One of the classes is costumed, and they let me dress however I want—the only input I got this week was “science fiction”. Looking very Ashley Wood’s Tank Girl in these drawings by an artist who I’ll call by his nickname, Biz, since I’m not sure if that’s his pro name or not.
I wish this had been a longer pose, because all the costume details are awful for artists to try and deal with only 20 minutes at a time.
I love this artist’s style.

Reblogging this for its 500th note, and because it just got a Daily Deviation on DA:
Thank god. I haven’t had a Daily Deviation since years and years ago when they chose probably the worst thing I have ever digitally painted as a DD. I’m super happy, guys.
Edit: click for fullsize.
Objectify Sniper Daily
As far as I’m concerned, this is the definitive Sniper cosplay. I’m not sure anyone ever need attempt it again.
EDIT: this cosplayer’s name is Citadel, I believe.
