WHOOHOO!! Rock it Bud!! XD
I knew Brandi was taller than Bud but I didn’t think there was that much difference in height.
Brandi is standing up, Bud is slouching with knees bent… the difference is maybe a few inches if they were both straight and tall.
well she’s got her knees bent and leaning back into brandi a little more, this is a motion capture shot, so things are going to be a little off. Looks like they are having fun though.
I’ve always found this to be a good reference for the comparative height of the Golem Girls. (Bud still isn’t standing up straight, but you can see how she’d be if she did.)
two words: teeth. hot.
i dunno why, but seeing Bud with her little fangs… well you get the picture…
I like Brandy’s too, there are just some other factors involved…
Just so long as you don’t go making Twilight vampire references (remember when vampires used to suck blood instead of ….)
yknow even in twiglet they still suck blood.
the cullens just choose to suck animal blood.
the other vamps all suck human blood however.
Twiglet … A small twig? Piglet’s sister? A health food cereal?
twiglet is my ‘pet’ name for the twilight series 🙂
but it can be a savory snack and a chocolate snack in the UK also.
“Twiglets are a wheat-based crisp snack shaped like small twigs, originating in the United Kingdom.” -Wikipedia
piglet + twig = a person who eats constantly and yet, they stay thin
Young girls singing and dancing on youtube. -Urban Dictionary
Twiglet, opprobrious moniker for the “Twilight” series. -Paula
(Love “twiglet”, btw)
Never seen ‘Twilight’ Don’t intent to ,especially since mentioning ‘Twilight’ lets eyes glaze-over on my nieces, and they change from happy young girls to love-sick, drooling simpletons.. shiver… 😆
Remember fan-girls don’t respond like humans! Best to back away quietly until the brain resets usually 5 to six minutes after the last stimuli.
If the fandom is challenged however loud exchanges have been reported.
My favorite antidote.
You should have warned me. Now I must read the entire 70-page blog, on the strength of the phrase “Logic does not cease to be logical just because it’s inconvenient.”
this is an awesome blog 😀
must admit i like the books but the blogger does make some interesting points 😀
and i must mentally bookmark that “Logic does not cease to be logical just because it’s inconvenient” phrase to be used at some point in the future 😀
im down to reading the last 20 pages
i wish this woman had been my english teacher 🙂
“when two complete thoughts really love each other and want to stay in the same sentence, their love makes a little comma”
Well, I do remember that the new season of True Blood starts this Sunday… 😀
And when Vampires had sensible spellings, drank blood, and didn’t sparkle??
“I vant to trink your blud!”
My ex-wife once proposed stories about a vampire with a sweet tooth who opnly bit diabetics.
And then there was Noseferatu, a vampire who drank … ahem … another … ahem … bodily fluid.
you have to admit
its very unique 🙂
ive seen in webcomics where peeps larp a vampire
of cause they cannot bit you so they touch you to bite you 🙂
maybe she spent to much time in those places and someone wore glitter dust one day 😛
Twilight is a time. I refuse to acknowledge any other reference.
Denial doesn’t make things go away. Thankfully, otherwise politics would implode on itself.
To paraphrase,”Nouning wierds language.”
I don’t know why but seeing as Bud is a goat, maybe her bottom teeth should show?
google goat teeth… all the teeth are pointing down
Lovely end to Pinup Week.
But, hopefully, not an end to the pinups? Not everyone has been represented, and it’s a good excuse to trot out characters we haven’t seen lately.
Actually, it doesn’t matter – ‘s all good, y’all ;D
Wed can still hope this pinup week is two weeks long. . . .
“We can hope. . .”
Bud’s fangs seem particularly prominent in this picture. She should probably avoid that particular facial expression around the kind of people who might think she’s a vampire. And now I’ve derailed the comments thread by mentioning the word vampire.
It’s the Cerberus Club. Who’s going to notice?
She could also always just copy Tina’s explanation for why she has fanged teeth.
“It’s a vampire! Quick, Buffy – the stake!”
“Excuse me?!? That was my favourite clubbing dress you just ruined?”
(Club Cerberus has a new, Slayer-shaped doorway in the north wall)
Damn that’s funny! 😀
I was thinking of the bit from the Very First Episode of “Buffy” when Cordelia walks up behind Buffy unexpectedly and Buffy whirls around with a stake…
Thenk you, thenk you. I’ll be here all week. Be sure to remember your waitress or be sure she’ll remember you.
How’re the new avatars?
I like how the lines don’t follow through with her hand going around the other side of her head, but they imply that it does. Very unique.
they’re oozing with teh hotness lol 😉
I guess Bud is over blowing up the island.
What ever did happen to Stinky??
Off, playing with his toy. He got bored when Bud started researching the sub.
Oi, this just basically screams “COLOR ME!” I will in, in fact, color at some time (if that’s alright with Paul).
*reads this thread while upscaling the image for coloring*
Looks like I’m not the only one that had this idea… 🙂
I’d join you guys, but they took away my crayons.
If that’s bud in your gravatar, I don’t see how Paul would have a problem with it…
Well, Krame, it’s a gravatar taken from this –> http://solbet.deviantart.com/gallery/#/d3hr2xk which I kind of did without permission. I’ve done a few of Paul’s when he was still on Deviantart (and he was even nice enough to take time critique! :D), and he had no problem then, especially since one was something he was selling on ebay, lol.
Beautiful artwork! Found this site via “Webcomic Alliance”. Keep up the awesome work.
go through the archives yet?
If it wasn’t Friday, I’d call you a cruel man for that suggestion….
sleep is for the weak >:P besides, it’s better to get it over with than be lost in the coming weeks…
“I’ll sleep when i’m dead”?
Well, he’s sleeping now…
Zevon must have been a bit psychic – he released My Ride’s Here, an album of “meditations on death” just a couple months before he was diagnosed with terminal lung cancer…
Or in this case, sleep is for the week.
Even clay people need a night at the club.
With those teeth
makes you wonder.
Dracula was very charasmatic and could control women.
Bud and Brandi looking like that….
In THAT battle of wills who would win?
because i think drac has come across a definate control challenger if not his equal 🙂
they both look adorable however 😀
buds expression looks just squeeeeee 😀
I’m sure with those little bitty dresses and banging figures they can easily control any man the same way Drac con tolled women or at the very least reduce them to a drooling mess. 😉
Interesting. That’s the sequence when Tina is wearing the makeup that resembles Nudge’s natural appearance.
But in the previous strip, when Nudge speaks … for that one panel she doesn’t look like Nudge at all…
Mebee that wasn’t Nudge speaking – May be it’s the face of ‘Sunny Dafodil,’ the optimistic element of Tina’s inner peanut gallery…..
A little out of character for both of them, though. Brandi is more likely to engage with brains rather than strength of will, and Bud might well just hurl an annoying vampire into the sun.
Of the three girls, Jin is most likely to play that kind of game, and given her mental stability of late, anything could happen.
As I recall, Tepoz wrote a catch into their programming so that they now have free will. Unless the Count can read and write in that language, and can catch them long enough to write on them, he’s so very toast.
Bud’s got that vampire thing going…
Oooh. Very niiice.
Well. The ‘leg-people’ amongst us will have a field-day.. 😛
Proud ‘leg-man’ and a bootyst…
By the by: Nudge is almost there
Just the base to be fixed and detailed.
That is the Acme of Nift!
ive no idea what that sentance means but it sounds brilliant 🙂
acme of nift!
Well…acme means the same thing as peak, pinnacle, zenith, etc…nift…hmm…don’t know that one unless it’s just short for “nifty”.
I guess the same sentence if you used a thesaurus would read something like “That is the height of awesome.”
Oh…and I think that statement was pretty cool, too. I will definitely be using it…but I promise to give you credit Fairportfan! 🙂
Yep, that’s it.
It’s one of several odd turns of phrase that have popped into my mind at one time or another
Another one, from a piece i wrote that somehow touched on gaming, that a gaming press writer asked my permission to borrow (with credit), was a description of a supplemental book for something – “Toon”, maybe – as a source of “ancillary gubbins and non-player doodahs”.
The epitome of nifty?
Excellent – Ever thought of making castings and selling them ?
Nope. Castings&garage-kits are nice, but the moment one has to pay royalties(as one should!) it is a losing business, so all my statuettes are one-off’s for my own enjoyment. 🙂
what about making your own characters or mythical creatures?
no copyright on unicorns 😀
Point is, I have to be inspired. Nudge is such a weird, yet adorable critter, and i am so inspired by the wapsiverse, that it just clicked “i am gonna take-out ye olde sculpting tools..” (after a 6 year hiatus, would you believe it!!)So basically i owe it to Paul that i picked-up something i enjoyed in the past..
Unicorns, elfs and whatnot, are being done by other artists waaay better than I ever could.
Quite right. Inspiration is everything. Without it, the work is drudgery. You’re interpretation of Nudge is inspired. It doesn’t matter that others can do better. There will always be someone technically better. What matters is how well you can execute your vision. Your vision in this case is nothing short of amazing. To me it’s a whole other look at the character. Not unlike the guest artists who draw for Paul now and then. They bring with them their interpretation of the characters, drawing them in their style.
Well, I guess you’d be paying out your nose for X-Men and similar stuff (like that Rogue statue you linked to earlier on), but in this case you surely could work something out with Paul which should make things a bit easier… 🙂
THAT IS SO AWESOME! =D
awesome might be to small a word
we need to invent a new word to describe that
THNX! Hope I got the colors about right.
Sadly, the eyes were out of whack. (Fixing them as we speak) So I had to drill-out the right-eye. (Dentist-phobics better not know what tools I use for that 😆 )
Eyes are a major part of a character’s impact -as You obviously know- so I put quite a lot of time in them, and I am super super critical of myself when it comes to sculpting and painting eyes..
i kinda thought of terminator 2 when i saw the drilled out eye hole….
luckily without the blood and light-up eye.. *shiver*
Babylon 5, when the doctor asks G’Kar what put his eye out – he picks up a Sharp Something from a tray of instruments, and says “I believe it was something rather like this. Of course, I only saw it briefly … l from the end.”
Star Trek: How To Become A Borg In Three Easy Lessons!
1. Resistance is Futile.
2. Lose the individuality.
3. Lose some body parts.
I don’t think Two of Thirty-Six – i mean, Seven of Nine – lost any body parts.
If anything, i think some may have been enhanced…
Eh, she’s upgraded from the scary monster Borgs that live in nightmares. But I thought she had a bionic eye as well. /shrug
Well, yeah. But i was amazed that there was a Borg branch of Victoria’s Secret (or maybe Frederick’s of Hollywood)…
What I don’t get about 7of9 is why she looks like a Borg super model and all the rest, male or female, turn out like Frankenstine’s monster. Then there is the issue of the Borg processing factory putting her in high heels. Makes no sense. of course I understand it’s that way for the no-life fan boys to drool over, but still, it’s so stupid plot-wise.
Jay, Dude! I can’t even relate to being able to do that. When I finally get done with this overseas gig, I’m going to find some sort of class to try and learn how to do that. Watching the progression through your pictures is inspiring.
*bows to the master*
I got a tip: just buy some DAS, or Darwi air-drying clay and start. A course is usually fairly expensive, and a packet of Darwi is just $3.- It helps one to find-out if one actually likes to sculpt. A course is kinda nice tho’, because You’re in company of other people. Helps with the perseverance, like the comments overhere (and especially Nudge’s father’s.. 😛 .. ) do for me.
And, remember this (every good artist, Paul included- can tell You) It’s 10% inspiration, 70% transpiration and 20% irritation with a smidgen of desperation. 😛
Sculpi is good if you’re worried about air-drying. It’s oven-bake. However, as I recall, it’s rediculously expensive and you can’t throw it, so I didn’t use it.
As someone who works at a small art gallery (and usually posts from work), I can truthfully say, Hubba-hubba! All seriousness aside, that is a very nift piece of work. I don’t usually see a lot of Mythic-type creatures here, we sell Native American arts and crafts, but enough scuptures have passed through for me to know I wouldn’t mind seeing it on display for all to enjoy.
Wonderful. It reminds me of how sculpture captures things missed by 2D media à la Close Encounters of the Third Kind‘s living room mountain sculpture.
Do we get to see it when it’s all done?
Hey! I’m in this picture! Okay… off-picture. At the bar. Ogling Bud and drooling into my drink. 😉
Hey! I’ve got a suggestion for a pinup – Dylan!
Bud Fanboi approves of this. The fangs are a very nice touch
I’ve always had this thing for the demon teeth… 😉
Hello, ladies; room for one more?
Interesting. I was wondering if Bud & Brandi would merit their own standalone pinups or if they were still enough of a duo to be drawn together.
On a less intellectually functional note: WOWZERS! 🙂 They’re looking good!
Are those fangs on their mouths?
its their teeth
all the golem girls plus tina have sharp fangs insted of the blunt ones we humans have 🙂
Ther’s gotta be one weirdo in every bunch…
…and Webshots only wants JPG or BMP images…
😯 WOWEEEEEH!! lover,LOVE LOOOOVE the background…
How do you do them so fast? XD
Well It looks like I have a new wallpaper image when I get home, thats awesome!!! Love the background and how you added the designs to thier outfits. To bad its a duo, don’t have any problems with Brandi, but I would love one like this just of Bud or Tina.
do you have a job colouring stuff in cuz that is way professional!
Thanks for the kudos, but Solbet’s work is much more along the lines of professional. I do this instead of working…
Wow, thanks for all the compliments, but it’s Paul’s wonderful artwork that’s the real work. I just have a high-tech box of crayons.
But I think this one is the best of the week, it was a lot of fun to do, too.
Aaaand I just noticed that I didn’t color Brandi’s shoes…lol
What? White is a color.
Not one you wear with a Little Black Dress…
The original has a dichotomy of color that I like with Brandi’s white dress and shoes against her skin and Bud’s black dress and shoes against her.
Echoing what was said by others – your coloring work is superb. The eyes… the eyes! Thank you for sharing these with us.
I really like your coloring. You are also ridiculously fast. *tips hat*
Well, for what it’s worth – here’s a work-in-progress shot of my coloring effort:
(Yeah, the shading on Brandi is preliminary and Bud isn’t shaded at all – plus there’s the problem of cooking up a background… :))
Good start so far. I’m thinking of taking an existing club scene background from google images and completely repainting to suit my art style (half ass thrown together at the last minute, lol). I love how you did her dress, very well done. And I seriously hate you since you came up with the same idea I did for the sparkly dress, dammit, lol. Oh well, I’ll try for something else.
I really like everyone’s take on this. Paul is definitely responsible for some awesome fan-art; he is also very nice about people dabbling in his sandbox. It is so nice to see how other people see Paul’s art in their mind’s eye. It’s why I enjoy it when Paul has guest artists, and get angry when people complain about it.
Well, it took me over a week, but I like the results:
Cerberus Nights colored by me in several sizes + GIMP XCF file with all layers
AWWW yes, I am severely tempted to make this my wallpaper. Will be saving it either way.
Who are you and what have you done with Eschmenk?
Lis, when I get this colored, I’ll ask Mr. Taylor if I can expand on it and make it a wallpaper. Maybe he’ll put it somewhere on the site, who knows?
It feels like it’s ending…
How so? The narrative still has many plotlines to resolve, and enough characters to continually introduce new ones.
Story issues aside, Paul also has a fairly popular and profitable webcomic, and it would be odd to abandon it at least until popularity wanes.
Unless you meant pin-up week is ending, in which case… yes. And now I look silly.
Okay, so March of last year, I tried to color the bottom panel of ‘2010-03-1 quite-obvious’, but couldn’t get it right. Anyway, looking at that panel for as long as I did, I got funny idea’s.
So, a year and 3 months later I got the bug again from Jay-Em.
pffffft….bahahahahahaha! awesome. just awesome. 😆
Dude, that’s Great! You faked me out – I was bumfuzzled that I couldn’t remember seeing the original, then the nickel dropped. Awesome….
Woo hoo! More hawt Brandi!
