If you haven't heard, I'm Johnny Recon's #1 fan. So passionate am I for this little indie that could, that I believe the creators Mitch Gerads and Scott Dillon currently have restraining orders against me. (if you don't know what a "Johnny Recon" is, then your stupid!! go here and get unstupid!)
Well imagine my geekgasm when I found out that the subject on Twart(go here and try to stop being so stupid!) this week was Johnny Recon!!!
"OH YEAH!!! This is gonna be fun!" I thought to myself before thinking, "I'll just paint mine and bring it on over and post it on Twart and.... oh, right... restraining orders"
Fine then, I'll start my own Twart. a Twart of one! right here! Welcome to my twart!! I mean, really,who needs their Twart?!?
Now, what to paint... Well the first 2 paintings on that other Twart(hence forth refered to as "filthy Twart") were really, REALLY cool. They had that retro sci-fi movie poster feel that's just perfect for Johnny. (click here and here, because you are still stupid!) I'm not competing with that. I need something I know that no one else would do. Then it hit me. "How about a Johnny Recon without Johnny in it?" I thought to myself, clearly without thinking again. It's stupid I know, but it's too late. The idea is out there and once it's out there it has a life of its own. I have to do this. But I did tone it down a bit. rather than not have him in it at all, I just put him in the background, buried under a hot naked chick. Since there needs to be some kind of an identifier that tells the viewer "that grining shadowy figure under that hot chick is Johnny", I put some icons in the forground; his raygun and jacket. This is comparible to a batarang and the bat cowl if that were Bruce Wayne back there.
I didn't have as much time as I would have liked to finish it yesterday, but since I'm anxious to get this up before another "filthy Twart" posts a better one, here it is, ta-da! ...half finished.
I should have the rest of it today.
