D'other Micks Characters


So seeing Decs Picard sketch there a while back kind of wheted my appitite for having a lash at a character that each of the Micks have drawn before so I've stuck them together. Plus its always fun to draw Patrick Stewart even if it aint a great likeness (He'll always be Xavier to me too) Although saying that Im just back from Star Trek and really enjoyed it.
Whats funny about this is that after finishing it I realise that I drew Mickey in the way I used hate seeing the Turtles drawn as a kid, i.e. No Pupils, Big teeth and spots on his skin. I used even go as far as marking in the pupils on the action figures I had!
P.S. Any of you guys seen the First illigitimate love child of the Eclectic Micks i.e. the Sketch Paddys

Nice one Will! I was hoping to see some of you guys draw the Frankenstein monster i designed.

Also, that Turtle is completely different to how i imagined you'd draw him; it looks more like something i'd draw, if you know what i mean. I have to say, i like all the detail you added. Really stands out from all the other characters.

Very nice stuff Will, one of my favourite pieces of yours. But which one of us drew the Turtles? And which of us drew Picard?

Declan Shalvey said...

Yeah, i drew Picard the other week just cuz i wanted to do a Star Trek drawing. Doctor Who was the piece i did to start drawing the other Micks characters.

Didn't Nick work on a Turtles book at some point?
This is great Will, really like the direction you're going, eapecially on Michaelangelo where you've utilised some really nice texturing and noodley linework, stuff you don't normally do. Looks great.
I also like when Dec attributes any improvements in your artwork to himself.

Will Sliney said...

Haha yeah Decs done that a few times now.
Thompson you drew Picard on a Trek cover, yeah and Nick did a turtles issue

Declan Shalvey said...

I did not say it was an improvement Mooney, i just said i liked it cuz it was more like how i'd do it. YOU said it was an improvement and i'm pretty sure it was you who suggested it before.

Classic Mooney-twisting-of-the-facts there.

Will Sliney said...

Soooo.. (Whistles) Lost finale anyone?

Declan Shalvey said...

Did that come across as angry? I was just sayin, is all. No anger there. Thought Mooney would admire my stick-to-it-iveness

Will Sliney said...

Nah you didnt, but I want anger, and all out brawls. We should have a Micks Royal Rumble

Moondog said...

Nah, you're right Dec, I'm just trying to cause trouble.
Can't help myself, MWUH-HA-HA-HA!!

It's bound to happen. Within 5 mins of Derry con.

I like the Frankenstein the best. More of a superhero version I think. Interesting mix of characters.

Ciarán said...

Great montage Will! Picard is spot on (looks like young Picard from when the series first started out). The heavy shadows on Mikey look the best though.

And cheers for the mention... mm..mmo... Mommy?!

Will Sliney said...

Oh I'm the daddy

Declan Shalvey said...

Eeewwwwwwww.

Nice! I'd like to see my Amperduke monster next time though. Hack

Will Sliney said...

Heh, I was originally gonna do a legion of Peadophiles in the background!
