Water Works

Here are couple of work files from Gagala's most recent piece.  I was going to give everyone a simplified 'tutorial' as to why some working poses begin as nudes and the whole layering process thereafter, but I just spent two and half hours in the dentist's chair having a root canal and a crown done.  I'm not the sort who gobbles down prescription meds whenever I stub my toe or hit my funny bone like everyone else these days....hell, I don't take aspirin unless I absolutely have to.  So, to say that I'm a little loopy right  now would be a mild understatement.

Not Dead Yet

At the beginning of March the new owners of vuku.com bowed to political correctness and deemed Gagala's artwork inappropriate for their forum hosting domain....and became yet another bland and mind numbingly boring speed bump on ye 'ol information superhighway.  Never fear though...you can still go there and visit the likes of the "Official Cher Community", "Nike Talk", and celebrity gossip boards like "JJB".  Sad really.

Shortly there after I got into an email discussion with Gag over future new home possibilities.  I threw a few ideas out there, but most of them have been previously used, gotten kicked off of, and/or gotten fed up with.  The "Secret Lair" is still up and running, but it's not exactly a social networking site / community forum....just a gallery.  As of right now there is no set time frame for or location of a future new "G-Spot". 

In the interim however, I offered to post his new works here...and he accepted the invitation.  Now, that's not to say that this blog is the new home of Gagala....far from it in fact.  This is just a means of getting his stuff out there until he can find a permanent home.  General comments for Gag and his artwork are welcome (and he'll probably read them), but DO NOT post pic / pose / commission requests for Gagala here...they'll just get deleted.

So, without further ado...something new.  This could be a follow-up to a previous swimming pool piece (the underwater perspective one)...he just wanted to make another "water fun" one using an older 3-D program.  Shego's pose looks very similar to the "dock's end" piece with Arielle, but that's purely coincidental.  Gag went on to say that there will be another annual "beach fun pic", possibly when summer begins.

Lois and Meg

Sometimes I really hate doing Fluffy pieces.  Within an hour of it's release upon the masses (and the inevitable re-posting to various sites) the first thing you'll read is half a dozen comments like "OMG!  Fluffy is back!"  No folks, Fluffy has not come out of retirement to tease you with a five or six year old sketch and then vanish into thin air again.  In all honesty I had every intention of coloring this one, but...well...I kinda lost interest in it.  So, to any would-be colorists out there...feel free to have at it.  Don't worry, Fluffy (probably) won't mind.

In other news: It would seem that I crossed over the 800,000 mark some time last night, four days ago saw the highest single-day hit-count on here, and my (randomly air-humps) deviantART account went over 8,000 yesterday morning.  Wait, wait...I'm gettin' all misty-eyed here.

Ki-Bo-Mo

It would seem that Gagala, by far my favorite Kim Possible related artist, has lost his forum to the evils of big business and political correctness.  The owners of Yuku.com, on which the "G-Spot" was based, sold the company recently.  The new owners decided that his forum "does not fit the image they want to portray" and shut it down.  It is/was a free hosting site and as most of you very well know....if hosting ain't free, it ain't gonna be cheap.

Needless to say, Gag has been a little down in the dumps as of late, so I conjured up a little something to brighten his day....

Zombie Chick

It's very rare for me to have commissions done, but sometimes you just gotta splurge a little and indulge yourself.  Ok, $10 isn't much of an indulgence, but that's about as much as I'm willing to pay for a pen sketch.  As for the subject matter, I initially asked Jay Fosgitt to due a nude version of his Zombie Chick (from Dead Duck), but he had a few misgivings about displaying her as such.  We finally settled on a scantly clad pin-up version....and you get what you pay for at that price.

Oh, you know me.  I wasn't satisfied with censor bars and what looks like cash register paper....and it naturally progressed from there.  I'm not completely happy with the end result, but this is about as far as I'm willing to take it at this point.

Pebbles - Part 2.1

An alternate "find the right hole" version of Pebbles - Part 2.  Sometimes Fred can be downright sadistic.

Un-Cool

Contrary to popular belief, it is utterly impossible to drive around and look cool....with a mattress set tied to the top of your Jeep.  On the bright side, I just woke up from the best nap I've had in nearly a decade.

Pebbles - Part 2

I my minds eye Fred is saying something to the affect of, "Thank the Gods your mother is a heavy sleeper."  I never could figure out a decent way of phrasing it for a speech bubble.  On that note, did The Flintstones ever get into religion or what god(s) they worshiped?  The Stone Age is a little pre-Jeebus, so that pretty much rules out God Almighty and Gozer the Gozerian.

Hip Replacement - For Lulz

A friend of mine recently had hip surgery due to injuries sustained in motorcycle accident some years ago.  I was looking around for some post-surgery do's and don'ts for her when I came across this little gem on a legit medical website.  Personally, I would tend to think that doggie-style while bent over a small step ladder would be rather uncomfortable....post hip replacement or not.

Pebbles

Has anyone ever seen the 1993 "I Yabba Dabba Do" in which adult versions of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm get hitched?  They (Warner Bros / Hanna-Barbera) pretty much wiped the slate clean and portrayed Pebbles as a very empowered '90s 20-something woman straight out of the waning years of Saved by the Bell...whereas all of the other characters retained their usual schtick.  Gone was any resemblance to the Sally Struthers voiced teenage version from the "Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show" (1971-72), instead voiced by Megan Mullally...yeah, that shrill, gold-digging, socialite, bitch from Will & Grace.

'Dabba Do' should have gone the way of the dinosaurs, but was actually released on VHS in 1998....a '93 Los Angeles Times review concluded with "...Yabba Dabba Don't". On a side note, caricatures of executive producers William Hanna and Joe Barbera can be seen among the wedding guests.  Thankfully it's sequel, "Hollyrock-a-Bye-Baby" (in which Pebbles becomes a mom), hasn't seen the light of day since it's airing in late '93.

Me?  Yeah, it's pretty obvious which version of Pebbles I prefer...

Next Best Thing

So, what's the next best thing to seeing Lois Griffin naked?  Why, Lois in lingerie of course!

Lisa Simpson (Update)

Last year I de-animated a pic of Lisa Simpson that I found on Paheal, but could never quite figure out what two characters the "animator" combined.  Obviously, it was Lisa's head, but the body...?

Well, it would seem that it came from another Fox character...though, not Marge, as I had originally thought.  Nope, it's Meg.
