dude, I have to hand to ya, you've created a character that has redefined the term Strong Woman. Gogo is truly the most original chraracter out there today. I hope you find more success with this chraracter

Commission: Pick it Up, Partner
EDIT: No one seemed to notice, or they were too polite to bring it up, but I made a slight tweak to her facial symmetry. (more specifically...the dreaded FLOATING EYE: Vicky Imperfecta by jollyjack((thanks JollyJack)) )

commission for :iconcerebus873: and a rare superhero piece from me. And She-Hulk, nonetheless!

I don't usually like doing superhero stuff, partly because I don't really follow those characters and certainly couldn't be accused of picking up too many Marvel/DC comics (or any at all, really), and also because there is an ARMY of super-talented artists working their fingers to the bone to be awesome (and they are awesome) at drawing this stuff, and I DO NOT compare. Just ain't my wheelhouse.

Having said all that? Hulk is awesome. Womens is awesome. Thus "She-Hulk" = awesome :D Enjoy!
Hey everybody!
Awhile back, me and Michael Mongillo did a short graphic novel called "The Lost Girl" (you might recall). It's a story about a young woman striking out on her own and getting tangled up with monsters (as will happen at times). It was a fun project to do, and is to date the first and only full-color comic book I've done so far. It's also PRETTY different from my Bomango stuff and a whole lot bloodier ;)037 by VanHeist

Well, it's available now as a digital download from the good folks at Heavy Metal! You can get it here:… Check it out!
the Bodyswap Episode by VanHeist

back! With a new tablet! That works! And so i celebrate with a stupid comic! :D

the "body-swapping" cliche seems like one of those inevitable ideas that is really just silly, ridiculous farting around with characters, and a potentially dangerous situation where you just narratively spin donuts in the parking lot of a story. So we're gonna nip that trope right in the bud and inappropriately scratch that itch right now and have it done with in a single panel!

and, if you read that entire previous paragraph and thought to yourself, "But Mr. Vanheist, all you've ever DONE is silly, ridiculous farting around with characters, and the parking lot of your story is practically paved with the bubbling rubber of over-spinned tires!" you are CORRECT and win a cookie from the jar of your choosing. But my ill-made and hypocritical point stands! So enjoy a helping of Didi-Pablo, Pablo-Didi, Gogo-Andy, and Andy-Gogo before we slap new tires on the Bomango car and get to restocking the spin-bakery. Huzzah!
Because all the world was holding its collective breath and absolutely nothing else was happening on Earth except worrying about my problems...

*snort, chuckle*

Well, there MAY be a few things going on more important than some deviantart doodler whining about his broken toys, but anyway.

An update on the art situation here at VanHeist command central. My suite of digital tools remains offline as it's apparent that my tablet itself--not the stylus, as hoped--has succumbed to an advanced case of the herp-a-derp-whoopsy-plops and can't sustain so much as a squiggly line without clipping, skipping, or making whatever the hardware equivalent of a dismissive fart noise is. Bummer. Over a decade of use is pretty much a win for a tool so regularly punished.

So I've bit the bullet (no idea where that phrase comes from, by the way) and threw money at a brand new Intuos Pro which should arrive in a week or so. I would have sprung for a Cintiq like all the cool kids, but the genie only granted me my wish for stunning good looks, and not waterfalls of money or pants-crappingly expensive art tools, and besides, the Intuos series has served me quite well in making mah silly li'l doodlez, so there ya go.

As previously reported, this does mean that there will be approximately Jack Schizzle-Squats going on for me here in the gallery until the new toy arrives (and works, presumably), so I apologize once again to waiting commissioners and anyone wondering why the hell I'm not posting anything. In the meantime, this presents an opportunity to get back in touch with my roots by swivveling over to my actual drawing desk, and using pencil and paper just like my Cro-Magnon ancestors did. It'll scare the hell out of my pencil sharpener, which probably assumed a long time ago it was retired. GET READY TO CHEW SOME WOOD AND GRAPHITE, BOSTON McSPINNY!

That's about it for now. You can go back to paying attention to important things now!

peace! :salute:

I love the character Gogo what was the idea for creating her?
Hajbe Featured By Owner Edited 1 day ago  New member
Here is one crazy idea for you. Apologies in advance, I have not slept much this night. :-D

What if Didi was Gogo's 2'nd personality (caused by her traumatic background) that got physically separated when Gogo was bored and decided to split. That would explain the difference in mental skills and personality in spite them being genetically identical. And also how she came to be so much older than Andy (mentally that is) when she is technically just a few years of age... And the physical difference? Maybe that is how Gogo would look like if she did not end up in that lab?

...or maybe I should just try to get some more sleep... :-D
