Blood from the Mummy's Tomb - Version B -Color by nathanscomicart Blood from the Mummy's Tomb - Version B -Color by nathanscomicart

Blood from the Mummy's Tomb (1971) Version B -Color with lines by me and Digital Paints by the very talented and super cool:iconvest:

Another fun page from the "MONSTERS MAIDENS & MAYHEM" convention sketchbook I'm doing up.

Very pleased with how this turned out, even though there were a ton of redesigns for this one(more so than the other pages). But the original artwork/poster designs that they used for this had a lot of potential. Plus anything that has a Busty British Bombshell running around in a virtually nonexistent jeweled Scarab top:eyepopping: gets an automatic:thumbsup: at least as far as marketing/aesthetics go.;-)

I'm a huge Egyptology-buff so I have to say this-:police: "There is nothing even remotely historically accurate with ANYTHING in this image. Not the temple or the jewelry/headdress, jeweled Scarab top, sarcophagus lid or the hieroglyphs(which incidentally enough have my name in there). It's all just a fun "campy" British/Hollywood take on ancient Egyptian curses and well...boobs... if you've seen the movie or at least the trailer ya know what I'm talking about.":laughing: (And yes:nod:the sarcophagus lid, the Egyptian Princess, and the Blade-wielding Babe are all the same person. just different costumes.)

I did up 2 different versions for this one, and everything is pretty much the same except that on Version A the Egyptian Princess doesn't have the jeweled Scarab top=D, and in Version B she does. For the black and white image I prefer the less bulky Version A, but for the digitally colored image, Version B has much more of a "Wow" factor with all the additional colors "Vest" added to her top:eyepopping:. Still looks fun either way.
Enjoy!:icongrin--plz:

it's somewhat of a historical/romance/fantasy kind of story involving Tutankhamun and magic :XD: it's called Timeless Sands and I have the prologue and the first chapter up on DA here's a preview of it. :la:

A new object has appeared and it has been told it is connected to the Golden Pharaoh Tutankhamen himself, this new object dubbed The Sun Stone of Amun Ra has been brought to exhibits all across the globe, along with the King himself, but something sinister arises when thieves break into the Royal Ontario Museum and try to steal the stone along with the Mummy. But Kathrin Alexander, the curator’s granddaughter, and a woman that loves all of history tries to stop them, only to become a witness to something she had never thought possible in her whole life after the stone breaks!

I hope you read it, and if you do I hope you enjoy it too :huggle:

Wow.:thumbsup::) Good prologue. That sounds really cool/fun and something I would read.:nod:

Will definitely check out the 1st chapter. :iconimhappyplz:

Have you thought about writing for graphic novels/comics?

I have actually, but the likely hood of me landing such a job is very slim to none... :( which is very disappointing I'd love to write for any kind of genre.
May I ask why you brought that up? :)

You're right:nod: about it being super-tough to land a writing gig for graphic novels/comics unless you produce your own.:)

I'm doing up a historical/romance/comedy script for a comic-series I'll be producing(i.e. Writing and financing, but not drawing.:)) and was just curious. I love anything to do with ancient Egypt and there aren't any graphic novels/comics that I can think of that are currently using it for a backdrop.

Read over your 1st chapter and liked it a lot. Would love to see a visual interpretation of it.:w00t: Lookin' forward to reading the 2nd chapter.:icongrin--plz:

well if you have a spot for me and if you know anyone who'd be willing to turn it into one I'd be over the wall happy :XD: I've always been a fan of the Golden King when I was a kid and always thought to myself if there was some kind of thing to bring him back to life then it should happen to him, and others too but Tut mainly (in my head at the age of ten lol)
I'd like to get a visual version of it but my drawing sucks really bad so I wouldn't be able to do it ^^; which sucks on my end a lot.

Also chapter two is up and you get to see (read lol) Tut talking with Kathrin... sort of... :XD: so when you read it comment to let me know what you think of the chapter like before your opinion means much to me. :la:

Also I commented back on chapter one :meow:

Do you still have any pics from the comic? Would love to see them.:iconxd--plz:

Wow....I mean...whew. Take a brief hiatus from your page and look at what I come back to. This is just phenomenal. First off, mad props because I love anything egyptian art oriented. Second, I'm glad you're continuing with the b movie theme. Lastly, the work itself. It's a beautiful layout that conveys a story very well. Your characters are absolutely lovely and Vest did a wonderful job on the colors. You all make an awesome team. Love this.

Thanks! Was thrilled about how this one turned out.

The original actress (Valerie Leon) looked awesome, but was way too white, so I knew going into this, it wouldn't really work well with all the Egyptian colors/themes(Plus you don't picture any white British people running around in Egypt.:)) So change the face, give her some much needed color ala "Vest" and everything looks amazing.:w00t:

Was surprised to hear over and over again from people at my last 2 conventions, how besides "Storm" there were hardly any posters or prints of characters that had any color to them, so they especially liked seeing this one.

Yeah, it's funny how old movies just put a british actress into ancient cultures and that somehow satisfied the "cultural" aspect. Glad you brought the color back into egyptian culture. I gotta agree with the convention folks, us brown folks need and love superheroes and art pieces that feature people that look like us. Sadly they're a bit too uncommon so i'm grateful you take on the task so often. :)

I just really love anything Egyptian, so I just made something I'd like have/see at a show. I hadn't really taken a good look:sherlock: around the Comic-Convention scene though to notice the lack in diversity. Lots of robots, aliens, elves and white characters, and not a whole lot else.

I did get a kick out of how many African-American attendees at the conventions I'd be talking to, who'd look over this print, like it, and I'd get the same question/response every time "Wait, so you drew this?" "Yeah" "But you're white?".:confused: I'd just laugh and tell them why, but you could tell it seriously threw people.:laughing:

I'm actually working with a photography studio right now to do some lithographs and promo material with one of their main models, who in addition to being insanely gorgeous,:jawdrop: also happens to be African-American as well. And I'm also right in the middle of doing an all ages comedy/adventure book I'm producing/writing,:work: but oddly enough, not drawing:-?[link] that(with the exception of 1 character)predominantly features Japanese characters.

Hadn't intentionally thought/sought out to do so, but looks like I'll be throwing in some much needed diversity into the industry.:)
I think whatever you create, as long as you love doing it and make it look the best you possible can, people will respond to that visual experience in a positive way.:iconimhappyplz:

Growing up, I always wanted to see more diversity in the comics. I'm thrilled someone is actively pursuing it, especially artists as talented as you. You're one of a kind, bud.
