Repulsor rays!

I am Iron Man!
Here's a sketch of Iron Man by Eric Canete that I threw some quick colors on just to take a break from what I'm usually doing at work.
I'm really looking forward to his upcoming Iron Man book with Joe Casey.

Nice! I like the way your off-registery, blocky coloring works with the sketchiness of the drawing.

Also, they're not really making a CG Alvin movie, are they? And who's the poor schmuck that is playing opposite them?

Thanks! Praise from Caesar.

They're definitely making a CG Alvin movie.
It's definitely going to be an affront to my inner child.
That's Jason Lee (Mallrats, My Name Is Earl).
He's also voicing Underdog in this summer's ruination of that franchise.

Well, I hope Mr. Lee is buying something really great with his paychecks from these projects.

You know, I look at the Underdog movie, and think, "Yeah, well, I'd probably have thought the original cartoon looked stupid if I'd been an adult when it came out." But, man, even as a kid I thought the Chipmunks were cloying and annoying. I'd really rather not have them dredged up again. I just thank goodness this occurring before I have kids of my own, so at least I can rest assured that no Chipmunk merchandise will end up in my house.

Grump grump grump! I'm being grumpy about kids movies!

Joel: You can bet on Derrick and I bringing loads of Chipmunks merchandise to class twice a week next semester!

Chris: Sweet stuff as usual. What does a repulsor ray do exactly? I think I had one of those in Junior high, or at least the female demographic thought so.

Joel : I think I was just young enough to think the Chipmunks were great when I was a kid. Of course, the version of them I was introduced to was their second time around in the 80s. Since they were created in the 60s and are now coming back again in the 00s, I think you can basically count on them making a resurgence every twenty years.

Cody : I think Stan was aiming for "Repel-sor" rays, as in they repel things away from Ol' Shell Head.
I coudl be wrong though, maybe they just smell terrible.

Maybe it's the venting of Tony's pent up--sweat/flatulance/ whatever happens when he see's the hulk coming at him full swing--air?

i thought you drew this.

chrishaley said...

Cody - That is really, really gross. It'd probably be pretty effective though.

chrishaley said...

April - Nope. Eric Canete.
