Day Dreamer

What is it, Dirk...? You gonna find out, young chap? You wanna decide for him? :P

Here's a younger take on one of my favorite past times; Dragon's Lair. I've been avoiding drawing Princess Daphne and Dirk's trusty steed for to long enough.




Now.....

If the first triple threat didn't succeed, then what makes these chumps think they can do better against our friendly neighborhood wallcrawler?

Speaking of which..... "If you can't tidy up and stow your mess, Webhead, then you're grounded until you know better. unh...unh... Any lip outta ya and you'll get no dinner, too!"


Rollcall: Otto (not Doc Ock), Shocker, and Sandman

Gah! I keep moving the joystick left and he goes right!
No wonder I never beat this game.

Stephen said...

Excellent work, Cheeks! I love Dirk's enormous feet.

And the Shocker has never looked cooler. Way to go!
mmm I also love Doc Ock's black tentacles. I've never seen them styled like that before and they look great.

Sean, you're an amazing artist and I have been a huge fan for a while. Your designs on Spiderman are incredible. Not only are you wonderfully gifted as an artist but you are a super nice person as well. And to top it all off, who knew you were a world class table tennis expert also. Great work Sean, keep it up.

ciao from Florence.

Big-Maow said...

Your take on the Dragon's Liar franchise is great, I have to look around your blog to see more samples which I'm sure there are. Like the rest of your work there is a great degree of charm in the renderings and the colours are always a stunning.

*Slightly off topic here; are there plans for some Cheeks Vinyl figures? I have my credit card ready...
