Looks a little more like his original "Onionhead" concept. Eh, I think I prefer the normal, slightly cuter Slimer we all know and love.

Really? That's cool! I had to get around to him eventually. I did another one in a different style earlier...

I hoped people'd dig that... I wasn't sure how many people would get it and just jump straight on the Slimer wagon!

He got released seperate from the others.

That explains why probably didn't get him. (and the name thru me off too I bet, I took those names on toys to think they were different from others, probably why I have a few snake-eyes)

He was in the very first wave of the figures.

Awesome work. Slimer actually looks evil / dangerous here, rather than just annoying :P

Thanks man, that's what I was going for -- the figure itself is kinda menacing!

All your GB stuff seems a HELL of a lot scarier than I remember the cartoon ever being.
Reply
:icont-rexjones:
T-RexJones Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2010
That's the idea ;) I have a slightly warped way of looking at things -- especially when I try to rationalize cartoony stuff into realistic stuff. Still, it's not as scary as the realistic Homer, Mario or Jessica Rabbit!

My ideas about TMNT just got a little darker.

I've actually penned probably ten pages or so, but the work on the animated shows've been holding me down these past couple of weeks. I'm online for good now though, so I won't be having any more delays with emails or the like :)

Why am I not watching you?! Must rectify that after this... His hands creep me out the most, but in a good way! Their posture...superb!

Thanks man, I find hands insanely creepy a lot of the time, so there's probably a great deal of that in there...!

If people have trouble remembering Slimer, I don't know what they're doing on this page. :P

Love the shades of green you used.

Eh, some people might not realise why I called it The Green Ghost instead of Slimer straight up. I'm not even sure he had a name at that point...

Thanks though, dude :)

Oh, Holmes! Yeah. I didn't hate Megatron Origins like everyone else seemed to,and it was certainly a heckuva lot better than anything by Costa and McCarthy. Still, it's not enough to make me automatically confident that his part of this "crossover" will redeem the inherent pointlessness of the concept.

He looks like he's ready to bit someone's head off. Also I think the glowing yellow eyes are a plus
Reply

T-RexJones Featured By Owner Oct 26, 2010
Yeah, I think the glowing eyes on ghosts like Janosz when he became the nurse and walked down the hallway were pretty goddamn creepy and I wanted to carry that across here. Kinda elevates them from goofy to creeepy :)

I was just looking at the toys and I have a challenge for you. If you can change the Meanie Weenie ghost that comes with Super Fright Features Winston into a respectable ghost and not a fast food mascot reject, you win the internet:
