CALIXXTA’S NAMELESS COUSIN WHO IS THE BEST WARLOCK DAD. His son has the perfect voice claim. This video too. Agh.   And this. So cute. His son wants to become a powerful sorcerer like papalock john, but his lisp prevents him from casting spells… so he resorts to really noob magician tricks like making coins “"APPEAR” from other’s ears.

Stand Master: 「WILLIAM “BJ” BLAZKOWICZ」
Stand Name: 「RESIST AND BITE」
Stand Origin: Resist and Bite by Sabaton

Appearance Classification: Artificial Humanoid

Stand Type: Short Range

Stand Appearance: Resist And Bite looks like nothing more than a mass of dark jagged metal in the shape of a human, at first glance, but closer inspection shows that its body is actually constructed entirely from gun parts. It wears green armor over its torso and legs, with a gray sealed helmet and visor.

Stand Parameters:

Destructive Potential: B
Speed: B
Range: C
Durability: A
Precision: A
Developmental Potential: B

Stand Ability:

The Art of War – Resist And Bite can copy any weapon it touches, no matter how simple or advanced, so long as it can fit in its hands. It can then recreate the weapon from its own body using the appropriate parts and wield them in combat.

More Than Meets The Eye – By using it’s entire body, Resist And Bite can create much larger weapons for BJ to wield. These weapons are often unconventional or fantastical, as they can be created from BJ’s imagination. However, they may not always work as intended.

Stand Cry: “RIP AND TEAR!” (Not shouted repeatedly)


Other: It’s Classic Doomguy, but he’s made of guns.

Mora and the Ştima Apei is gonna be live in a couple weeks!

The first seven pages are scripted and thumbnailed! I’m very excited.

Again, Mora and the Ştima Apei is going to be the story of a Witch and a Guardian in the Romanian countryside, meeting on rocky terms and learning to survive together. Heavily Fantasy with some science fiction elements and an in-depth lore and world, based on Romanian Mythology (no, not the westernized vampire kind).

The comic will be available to anyone pledging $1 and up, and concept art and developmental work will be posted for everybody!

And if you were wondering if my previous work will be reflected in the comic, yes, it’s gonna be pretty gay

Thanks to everyone for your support!

Human skulls - an infant and an adult - in profile
From Traité complet de l’anatomie de l’homme comprenant la médecine operatoire by Jean-Baptiste Marc Bourgery. 
The field of developmental anatomy describes the structural changes an individual progresses through from fertilization to full maturity. After birth, the 44 separate bones of the newborn skull gradually fuse, forming sutures; In the adult skull above, these may be seen as a series of serrated lines across the boundaries of the cranial bones. The skull also undergoes major alterations in terms of overall shape, and teeth begin to develop. 
[T]heses about the art of the proletariat after its assumption of power or about the art of a classless society would have less bearing on these demands than theses about the developmental tendencies of art under present conditions of production. Their dialectic is no less noticeable in the superstructure than in the economy. It would therefore be wrong to underestimate the value of such theses as a weapon.

65 Years of the Peanuts Gang.

Charles M. Schulz’s approach to cartooning was to take out the extraneous details and leave in only what’s necessary. For fifty years, from October 2, 1950, to February 13, 2000,Schulz wrote and illustrated Peanuts, the single most popular and influential comic strip in the world. In all, 17,897 strips were published, making it “arguably the longest story ever told by one human being,” according to Professor Robert Thompson. In Only What’s Necessary: Charles M. Schulz and Peanuts, renowned designer Chip Kidd assembles the long-awaited follow-up to Peanuts: The Art of Charles M. Schulz, by focusing on Schulz’s artistry.

Reproducing the best of the Peanuts newspaper strip, all shot off the original art by award-winning photographer Geoff Spear, the book will feature ancillary images from the archives, including exclusive, rare and unpublished original art and developmental work—many never seen before their inclusion in this book. 

Timed for the 65th anniversary of Peanuts and the theatrical release of their first-ever 3D CG-animated feature film, Only What’s Necessary is sure to give Peanuts fans the world over a reason to celebrate.
