Girl in Gold Boots XII

As June comes to a close and temperatures just reached 109 fahrenheit (42C to my British peeps)
I give to you a few more Girl in Gold Boots sketches, for July I have some other ideas for art. That's not to say I wont revisit Girl in Gold Boots a lot more.

As promised way back at the start of the whole Girl in Gold Boots malarky... Harry Blatz.

Then & Now Lunar Lander

Houston, the Eagle has been redrawn.

Then & Now Star Wars

If you look closely, and have the freeze frame button ready, there is indeed an AT-ST in The Empire Strikes back.
I guess my 7 year old brain remembered that and I ended up drawing a lot of Snowspeeders and this little battle scene.

I found a screen capture of the At-ST in Empire, the SW nerd in me notices it looks a lot more streamlined than the chicken walker in Return of the Jedi..well, as streamlined as a walking box on spindly legs can be.

Then & Now, dog edition

Special guest stars on the blog today, my sisters Angela & Karen.
Asked to draw a dog in my sketch book, they both obliged me and this is the result.

Angela's dog drawing -

Then we have Karen's dog sketch -

Then we have my 7 year old effort....yeesh!

And here we have modern technology digital dog sketch 

 I remember Angela telling me about the Invasion of the body snatchers (1970's version with Donald Sutherland) and how the old bum falls asleep near his dog and the alien pod gets it wrong and fuses them together in a dog/bum head nightmare. That's how dog sketches ended up happening that evening if memory serves.

Then & Now Bond....James Bond

The Spy Who Loved Me was the first Bond film I saw. It left an impression on me when the 1976 Lotus Esprit S1 became a frackin' submarine!
Yes I know all about what Connery means to the film series and yes Goldfinger is great... but this is like the whole Doctor Who thing, you never forget your first. I actually like Daniel Craig as Bond.

The original

The scene in question
car & submarine

The end result of da choppa  (Whoever made this gif is an 8 bit genius)

Then and Now Spy car

YEAH, young boy draws spy car, with big ridiculous gun on the top...WICKED COOL DUDE. My younger self knew what he liked... car with guns!!!

Then and now again

Some Battlestar Galactica fun for today. If you'd have told my 7 year old self that the awesome Battlestar was going to be remade in 2004 as an even more awesomer experience and that you would be totally in love with Starbuck...well let's just say I would have been doubtful at that age.

Then & Now

Found some art from when I was a nipper.
So the next few posts will be the old art from when I was about 6 or 7 years old, and now.

That shark has a big fin!
So in the quickly sketched new version, I had to give the shark a big fin.

Sex sells... I know it.

Taking a quick break from the Girl in Gold Boots art to bring you fans more of the lovely Bambi Woods from Debbie Does Dallas. Yes, I am pandering to the internets, yes nudity gets me more hits on the blog...I ...I can't help it. I'm a blog WHORE!

Warning...boobs ahead...
so if someone walks in on you looking at the next few sketches...tell them it's not porn...IT'S ART! I'm sure that will work.
Seriously, if you are offended by nudes, boobs or sexy ladies stop scrolling.
You've already scrolled haven't you?
your patience is appreciated, here's Bambi's bewbs!

Girl in Gold Boots X

Here's Joanie about to take a little vacation with some pills...and then of course Michele takes over in her furry bra as lead dancer...oh that brazen hussy!

Girl in Gold Boots IX

In keeping with the movies timeline (sort of) I am up to the part where Joanie convulses and spazzes about trying to show Michele how to dance. The next few sketches will be cheesecake and curves as I move on to a rather fun part of the film... basically lots of girls dancing in skimpy outfits.

Girl in Gold Boots VIII

Owner of the nightclub 'The Haunted House', Mr. Leo McCabe & his henchman Marty.

I've read a few blogs that compare and contrast Girl in Gold Boots to Showgirls, I may have to organize a double feature bad movie night with friends...they may hate me for it though.

 In my humble opinion, Nomi is no Michele.

Unhealthy obsession....nah

Nice to find more people online loving on this movie.

Girl in Gold Boots VII

Bara Byrnes as the sad, junkie dancer Joanie Nichols
So I've sketched the scene that makes me laugh...she's done dancing, she's in her dressing room, Leo is about to bang on the door with Buz, Critter and Michele...and what is she doing?  Staring at herself in a hand mirror for waaayyyy too long. It's an acting choice..sure, and it's one that makes me love Bara even more.

Girl in Gold Boots VI

"How about it Critter old pal, seems to me a place like this could cash a 50...maybe even a 100."

 "Ever since I got back, I've been carrying my bill-fold full of Nepalese money!"

Girl in Gold Boots V

You know him, you love him, you cannot effin live without him... ladies and gentlemen, the one... the only, Critter Jones.

Also, because the character of Critter harps on about it to Leo when he gets a job at the Haunted House night club...this sketch happened.

Girl in Gold Boots IV

The vehicles of Girl in Gold Boots....yes that's right, I sketched the vehicles from this bad movie...nothing is safe from my digital pen.

The busted ass motorbike 'Traveler' was almost a character more developed than Harry Blatz!!!
Oh and is it misspelled if I am from England? Apparently it is Traveler in the USA and Traveller in UK. Colour me rouge of cheek.

Girl in Gold Boots III

So here's the start of the movie, the great roadside cafe "EAT". To quote MST3K yet again, 'ahh the nights we'd linger over brandy at...EAT'.

Who do we find dancing to the jukebox inside of 'EAT'? Why it's the lovely Michele. She's pretty if a little vapid (I think that's the fault of the writing more than her acting) You may also recognize Michele as Cleopatra from Death Race 2000. Ahhh Leslie McRay, dance like no one's watching.

Girl in Gold Boots II

Here's Joanie's ne'er do well brother Buz. He's an icky elf as so precisely put by MST3K. This sketch of him is from around the time Buz has become a full on drug dealer in the film and the lighting in the scene gives him chilling black eyes, so he becomes even more disturbing in his icky-ness and elf-ness.
Live a little..BABY!

Girl in Gold Boots

One of my favorite MST3K episodes, so much so that I purchased this bad movie without the riffing. So in honor of me watching it on May 31st 2012, I plan to do some character sketches from Girl in Gold Boots, look out for the icky elf, Critter Jones, the lovely addict Joanie Nichols, and maybe even Harry Blatz.
I start off with Joanie....she had a pretty mind...A pretty MIIIIINNNNDDDDD.
