I got your e-mail, Marcus.  Definitely not for the under-18 people.  Alos something that's very scary - some parts I can deal with, but the outright violent stuff I prefer to stay away from.

As for Mustang's style, it's kinda of cross between very early FemJesse stuff and Sophie Fenwick's stuff (both can be found at FM/TLZ).

I am now bowing and salaaming and any sort of flattering worship.  If anything of my style could be even 5% like the wonderful FemJesse and Sophie than that is a truly great honor!  Thank you for that kind word.  Both are my idols of idols with Futurama art (along with Coldy, of course).

Uh... some crappy early reluctant shippy stuff even though I did mean it to be less shippy so much as  "Friendshippy" (which means a lot to me since Friendship means A LOT when you think of long term relationships but friendship gets tossed aside more than it should be even though it is very true form of love that is so under-rated) anyhoos.. there ya go... crappy early non intentional shippy stuff from "Leela's Home World"

Thanks for the kind comments, everyone!  It makes my day, it does. 

You are right, Archonix, Fry does look like David Bowie.  Maybe I need to go back and make his eyes heterochromatic (though in Bowie's case that was an injury that made his eyes different colors).

FordMustang - David Bowie is God.

This is a possible cover for my novel, 'Silhouettes'.
I'm going for a minimalist angle here.



 http://coldangel1.deviantart.com/art/Possible-cover-for-my-novel-82987923

Here's the rear cover blurb:

* * * * * *

“There’s already too much death left behind me,” he said. “Too much for me to see the bodies that lie at my feet today. It’s just a few more drops of red in a sea of blood – completely unnoticeable.”

The Cold War is long past, leaving only sinister reminders throughout Russia, thermonuclear sentinels standing in silent vigil, slowly rusting away.
The world has moved forward into different conflicts, different permutations of barbarism – it is a time when allegiances ebb and flow like the wind, and the fate of millions teeters on a knife edge.

But for some the past can never be forgotten.

In a time when the once-mighty Soviet Union is little more than a memory, a new force has emerged from the carcass of Russia to dredge the ghosts of the past and visit terror upon a new generation.
Armed with unimaginable weapons and driven toward an impossible goal, the New Revolution’s diabolical vendetta could pull the world into the last great war.

Now, a hastily-assembled team of ill-equipped and undisciplined mercenaries must be sent against the rising threat. Led by the enigmatic Cale Black, they are the worst that humanity has to offer – but they may be humanity’s last hope.

Under the weight of history, and with the fate of mankind itself in the balance, Cale Black must lead his rag-tag team of cut-throats against an insurmountable enemy; battle fearsome machines built for war, and uncover a traitor that could be any one of them.

But danger lurks on the icy wastes of Siberia and on the streets of Moscow; the uncertain loyalties of a beautiful terrorist woman and the fanatical aspirations of an old Soviet Colonel may spell doom for Black and his team…

…And if they fail, World War 3 begins.

Wow, you are a homo sapiens sapiens of many talents.  I did not realize you were an author as well as an artist! The cover does bring out the stark cruelty of this future.  I don't read this type of sci fi so much (I do like the "March Upcountry" series). Your plotline seems very interesting.

Well, this one isn't strictly sci-fi. It's actually a contemporary action/thriller. It does have a sci-fi element involved, but mainly it's just a spy/commando story.

I must say I'm glad to see that others are now noticing the raw talent that Joel has.  I saw it the first time he posted his first art.  Marcus took Joel under his wing for a short amount of time and suddenly Joel's artwork started taking on a certain charm of its own.  Add to that his fanfics are things that I could only dream of being able to write.

Coldangel has become something of a National Treasure to PEEL.

All I did was chuck a couple graphics programs at him   wink Miraculously, they hit the right continent, and his convict ancestry(1) did the rest - sure, he had to shiv a few people(2), but he got the crank(3), right?

Graphics programs = for colouration, btw.

(1) proud Antipodean heritage
(2) bid a cheerful good morning to his delightful neighbours on his way to the letterbox
(3) letter containing the CD-ROM

You do realize that nailguns aren't actually guns right? They're for people too lazy to use a hammer.

Have you ever tried to nail a piece of wood to a concrete floor?  Believe me, a nailgun is the answer to a prayer if you have to do that.

Percussion cap fired nailguns have all the characteristics of a gun. Dad has one that he uses occasionally to nail steel beams to concrete. six cap "rounds" on a plastic strip, muzzle-loading for the nail itself.

Six inch nail through two inch of steel into concrete base. BANG.

I'd call that a gun, personally.

I never said they weren't useful. I just know somebody who bought one because he's lazy and was making fun of him.

Just as an afterthought. Why go through all the trouble of using a staple gun when you can just go to the laundry room and make mustard gas?

Obviously you've never watch home construction.

A lot of buildings have a concrete slab for a floor.  To be able to build a wood frame around the building, the botom of the wood frame has to be nailed to the concrete slab.

It's not an easy thing to do...

I had a crash-course in the construction industry three years ago when I went working for dad, whilst trying to find work in my chosen field. What I said about the cap nailgun is true, it's like firing a some huge pistol at the wall and boy does it have a recoil... there's a church down the road from me, that I helped renovate, with a big fat wooden truss nailed to a steel I-beam, and a couple of semi-structural steel supports nailed straight to a concrete pad. Building inspector never even blinked. Nailguns aren't hugely popular over here for some reason but, I tell you, they save so much time. Used to be that fitting up the interior studwork for a loft conversion would take two or three days with a regular hammer'n'nails, but with a nailgun it's just *boosh boosh boosh* and you're done. T'ain't laziness. Frankly anyone who prefers to use a regular hammer when they can use a nailgun is just an idiot.

At some point I realised that finding jobs would be easier if I looked in the wanted ads rather than a field, too.

Now lets have more coldangel art, because that rocks.

My very first real job - all those decades ago - was working in a packaging factory, making wooden pallets. You know, the kind that you stack stuff on and then fork hoists pick up? We started out using air-powered stapleguns. Not particularly powerful (we even had a few mock fights with the smaller ones when the boss wasn't there   big grin ), but later on we got some nailguns.

By cripes, they were not toys. They took a load of about a hundred nails at a time, and could push an 80mm nail right into solid wood. We even had to get a new compressor as the old one didn't have enough grunt.

You could hold the trigger down and bounce it over the wood, the safety catch on the business end making it go off.

Then again, pallet after pallet after pallet (ad infinitum), even the coolest nailgun got boring after a while...

All right, enough weighing in. Back to the art...
