MSTdA pt. 1 by VanHeist MSTdA pt. 1 by VanHeist
I had this idea awhile back. I was going to do a gallery purge since, let's face it, a lot of old stuff is just painful to look at again. From time to time it's useful to sort of chart your artistic development, but for the most part the ass end of my gallery just kind of sits there like a junkyard of old ideas, pretentious crapularity, and of course, incredibly outdated Bomango stuff that clogs up the already confusing canon.

But will i let myself off the hook that easy? Hell no! Why, simply moving onward and upwards is for healthy, ambitious people!

I'm 100% certain i'm not the first to do this quasi-meta "art of art making fun of itself" but as a huge fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (if you don't know what that is, hi, this is the internet) this seemed like a grand way to grind my snooty face into my own artistic leavings AND still be self-indulgently reckless into the bargain!

I'll get around to doing more of this when i get a little more free time, but for now, enjoy the first installment :)

This is such a cute idea. I hope there'll be more.

Like others have said, though, I do like your older Bomango stuff. Scrawny-Gogo was hella cute, and it's interesting to see how a person's style can change and improve over time, and how characters can develop.

Maybe you could move it into its own separate folder, so that newer fans can tell what's outdated and what's canon?

I'll be honest (without reading the description first), halfway down reading this I thought, "AH! I remember, he's a MST3K fan and this looks exactly like it." Really, really great imaginative thought here, VanHeist. Wish I'd thought of it. Also, here's more honesty for ya, I've recognized all the photos except the last one. Speaking of which...

WHEN THE **** ARE YOU GONNA UPDATE YOUR FACE!!!??? Either take a pic or draw yourself, "Gosh..."

Everything leading up to 34:43 was hilarious, but after 34:49 I had to literally stop for a few moments to catch my breath from Tom's comment. I was laughing so hard.

All in all, great strip!

Way awesome.

And the steroids comment is spot-on. You could watch her bulking up in progress. It was sort of weirdly cool.

I guess it's some sort of adaptive measure?

"Hm. I'm gonna growing mine muscles now. And another me. I shall calls her Didi."

"I am becomes more beefy!"

i guess in the end it's quite a drastic change in appearance, but along the way it never felt particularly odd or out of step to me (especially since Didi has more or less the same slight build as the original, heh)

What was interesting to me was how it seemed to grow with her 'tude.

As she became more violently eccentric rather than just eccentrically violent, she got beefier. And taller.

The more 'metal' she became in mind, the more 'heavy' her body got.

Now she's HEAVY METAL. :horns:

Awesomes! Everybody's in great form tonight! Hams!

Y'know, she's evolved a ton since then and I love the modern version, but I'm still quite partial to early Gogo with the big sloe-eyes and the oversize shoes. As far as I'm concerned, that can be what she looked like in her younger days. (Wellllll, maybe without corners on her scalp... :) Poor disturbed Didi...)

:iconvanheist:
VanHeist Featured By Owner Sep 11, 2012
i like the early version too, but what bugged me about the eyes and shoes (and other design choices) was that it felt like a stylized flourish that didn't come naturally. (Didn't help that my overall technique and anatomy really needed sharpening too).

has its charms, and it's not like i'm anywhere near perfectly skilled nowadays, but in general i think the gang's much more sharply rendered these days.

Dude, I LIKE the ass end of your gallery! It's perfect for when your cruising the Internet drunk and land into dA. Your gallery, Gnarls Barkley and a drunken mind is sweet as all hell. Good music and good art (that just gets progressively better) and comes to a halt in god-tier awesomeness.

This piece is hilarious though. It's especially interesting since your characters are commenting on old versions of themselves. So make more. Please.
