This is the first in a series of paintings with the theme "Webcomics as Movies."

This one was for Tom Dell'Aringa's Marooned comic. It's very loosely based on the poster for the sci-fi classic "Forbidden Planet."

Here's the original poster:

54835

And here's my take for Marooned:

54837

Let me know what you all think!

Thanks, Bobby Ray!

Yeah, I have to change it up once in a while. Drawing flies all the time can get a little boring . . . :o

@jonwood- Thanks!

@justjean- Also, Thanks! (Actually, the little "pink guy" is a tweenage martian girl named Ril in Tom's comic Marooned. His martians don't display a lot of sexual dimorphism other than eyelash length. Heh . . . )

So witty and well drawn! Actually Your comics style is wonderfully vintage too to some extent!

Thanks, Caesar! I was kind of going for the vintage look. I used the old movie poster above for reference. Very loosely based on that.
