Heroic Sketchdump by CrackpotComics Heroic Sketchdump by CrackpotComics
A bunch of assorted stuff I've drawn between the beginning of summer and a few weeks ago. :P

Holmes: Drawn after watching the first season of Sherlock on Netflix. (It was awesome.) I find it funny that my design for Sherlock never changes, but my Watson looks totally different every time I fanart him. (Mostly it's the dilemma that I love "strapping young man Watson" from the original story canon, but most of my favorite actors in his role have been the blustery eternally-bewildered older men. :XD: Compromising between the two is so hard.)

Bat-Family: I miss when Cassandra used to use kissing as a universal method of communication. As soon as she learned how to use words, she got significantly more self-conscious about stuff like that. (Also, I can't believe she and Steph never got to reunite "on-camera" in the comics before the reboot. :noes: At least I got Red Robin #25 and Gates Of Gotham for my Cass fix.) (Also, Damian Wayne has a great capacity for being impossibly adorable.) (Also, "Dick" there refers to the pictured Batman being Dick Grayson, rather than being a derogatory descriptor. :XD:)

The New Teen Titans: In almost all aspects of everything I much prefer the Teen Titans cartoon canon to the original comics canon, with the major exception being Terra. Much as I love having her as such a tragic character in the cartoon, being so insecure about herself and her powers that she could be so easily manipulated into betraying her only friends...I just love her so much more as a bratty manipulative little [rhymes with "witch"]. :XD: And those obnoxious buck teeth. I also love the idea of her being the one abusing Slade rather than vice-versa; the "FML" sketch mostly came from this moment in a post-Terra's-death comic where Slade and Gar wind up having a randomly uncharacteristic heart-to-heart in a caf, and this scene occurs with a hilarious pause moment: [link] :XD: The pause was probably meant to read as "If I tell this kid that I so uncharacteristically befriended twenty minutes ago that I slept with his 16-year-old not-quite-girlfriend, he'll either try to kill me again or I'll just never hear the end of it", but it always reads to me more like "Oh god, do you have any idea how hard I've tried to suppress those memories?"

Also, Silver Age Mad Mod is excessively fun to draw. (To explain that gag a little, Starfire's civilian job in-comic was as a photography model, with Donna Troy as the photographer.)

Chip 'N' Dale's Rescue Rangers: Finally finished watching my Volume 2 DVD set, after at least a year. Monty's still my favorite. (The design for young Gadget was taken from some issue of the Boom Studios comic.)

Phineas and Ferb: Still got a crazy fangirl crush on Doofenshmirtz. :XD: He just NEVER. STOPS. BEING. FUNNY. (And I still love how he can't recognize Perry without his hat.)

...So yeah. There you go.

Well, it involved Cass saving Tim's chastity from a villainess who wanted to have his child, and then I can't tell you what else happened because it would spoil that story. :P But if you haven't yet, I'd highly recommend the Gates Of Gotham miniseries (it'll probably come out in trade form in a couple months), since she's pretty awesome in that and has a great dynamic with Tim and Damian, not to mention it's a really interesting read regardless.

I... just... I think my favourite thing about this is actually the Doofenschmirtz bit at the very bottom. :XD: Although as discussed before, I read the New Teen Titans back around the Terra arc, and OMG. It's actually really cool to see you do those characters (and to remember how emaciated comic-Raven looks, lol) and the stuff you came up with was hilarious :XD:

She was my favorite character from that first post-George Perez run, so much fun, that I still can't believe they didn't do more with her. Maybe in this post-reboot universe someone can throw her into Justice League International or something. (...With Baby! :D )

CrackpotComics Featured By Owner Sep 7, 2011  Student Artist
Thanks! As for Watson, I've got the world's biggest soft spot for Nigel Bruce (though more in the context of the 40's Sherlock Holmes radio show, some of those actual movies are a bit much for me to handle as a Holmes fan), as well as for Nigel Stock, who played Watson opposite Peter Cushing in...I wanna say the 60's? :P Jude Law made a fun Watson too, though that was mostly through his chemistry with Robert Downey Jr.

You're welcome!

That's cool! I think my favorite Watson actors would have to be David Burke and Edward Hardwicke (They both played opposite Jeremy Brett in the..late 80's I think..) Jude Law made a very good Watson. ^^

Heh, thanks! And since I'm planning on entering a contest *Sakura-Hammy is holding over on her page, you'll probably see a good deal more of Ferb hanging around my gallery...though mostly in OC-shipping situations, but her OC is actually really great and well-rounded (I've mistaken her for a canon character far too many times :XD: ), but still, it'll be Ferbtastic.

...I'm not sure if your fangirling is a blessing or a curse. On one hand, you draw everything I like so it's always a pleasant surprise to see what I have in my inbox from you. On the other hand...Then it makes me want to watch/read for the fandoms. Waaaaaah, but I already have things I need to do today!

Holmes: The fangirl in me wants to say you draw them both to be adorable and attractive. The funny-gal in me especially wants to point out the LOL-factor of Watson's fistbump. He looks so happy to be doing it with his best-friend/partner/lover. Holmes, on the other hand, looks so delightfully confused. XD Oh! and Holmes patting him on the head is cuuuute. :heart:

Batman: See, here I KNEW you meant Batman was Dick Greyson....But my mind had extra fun at the thought you were just adding commentary there. :iconimhappyplz: And Cassandra and Steph are so cute together. :heart: Just saying. ...You know, I'm going to miss them in the reboot. :(

Teen Titans: ....You make me fangirl too easily with how you draw Starfire, Raven, and Slade. Stop it. (LOL) Although, that reminds me. Have you played the Mortal Kombat verses DC game? You must, if you haven't! Deathstroke, Joker, and Captain Marvel ended up being my favorite people to play. And there is just something awesome about being able to kill people with that BANG gun.

Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers: Monty X Gadget! My favorite pairing from the show. Just so adorable. And you draw them all really well. That's another thing that's fun about this sketch dump. Seeing your styles change and the range you draw from. I do have a question about the comics though. I didn't read them because Ian Brill was the writer. But I heard some bad things about the series...What were your thoughts?

Phineas and Ferb:

...I bought so much PaF stuff while I was in WV and NY. XD I got the awake-inator, stuffed plushies of perry, and so many action figures. My inner Scrooge yelled at me...But I did get them on sale! So maybe the fact I spent money won't make him so angry at me...Who am I kidding, he wants to rip my throat out.

But back on actual topic! Ferb's dancing pose there looks very flamboyant. I like it. XD And your Perries and Doofs are adorable as usual. I especially like Derpy Perry licking Doof's cheek there. It's just so cute. :heart:

Unfortunately after years of letting my video game muscles (mental and physical) atrophy, I really suck at playing games now, and the only one I ever play anymore is Super Smash Bros with my brothers (and I almost always lose :XD: ). Still, it's cool that they've got Deathstroke and Captain Marvel in there, those are two I definitely wouldn't have expected.

Regarding the Chip n Dale comic though...my immediate response is that the first storyline was really interesting and compelling, and that the second one was just written with a less interesting story, and with a lot more ridiculous cheesiness. But I have also noticed, partly due to reading this series, that I tend to ascribe greater writing ability to comics when they have really good artwork. :P The first storyline had an amazing artist on it, who then did part of the first issue of the next story but was replaced by a succession of inferior artists (nothing against them, it's just that his art was so beautiful and so detailed that almost ANY following act would have to be inferior), and in the second story I encountered at least three moments of excessively cheesy dialogue/monologue that made me think "If that other artist was illustrating this, I probably wouldn't even question it."

...So yeah. :P Maybe it's because I've been "reading" comics since before I actually learned how to read that I subconsciously give the art such high priority over the story, but anyhow, that's how I'm wired. Though I will give you this, Mr. Brill definitely did his share of minor character abuse throughout the run (I won't spoil the Foxglove's father one if you haven't heard yet, but Tammy(?), the squirrel with a crush on Chip, definitely got cheesed up), but did provide at least one great flashback to Gadget's youth with her father, which I definitely appreciated.
