Mythos: Tengu by MurderousAutomaton
Mythos: Tengu
Another Mythos character!  Been a while, and I'm still working my way through the list.  This dashing tengu was suggested by :iconkkylimos:

More to come, eventually! ;p
TMNT: Renaissance (2015 Version) by MurderousAutomaton
TMNT: Renaissance (2015 Version)
Turtle Power! :tmnt1: :tmnt2: :tmnt3: :tmnt4:  I was thinking of tweaking my TMNT: Renaissance poster print for conventions.  As much as I love Slash, I thought maybe a version without him might be better--back to the main four, and they're bigger.  What do you guys think?  Yay or nay?

Here's the original, for reference: TMNT: Renaissance

You know what?  I can't believe I'm saying this, but I'm not going to invade your puny planet and destroy mankind with my robot army.  You guys are too cool. ;p

Personal Quote: "Destroy all humans!"
Hello, my fellow giant killer robots!  ...I mean, humans.  Fellow humans.

Lots of stuff going on and no time to blab about it!  But I figured it was finally time to share an update of all the recent shenanigans.  First off, I finally started a Tumblr account, at , if you wanna check that out.  I'll try to post more sketches and other silly things that I don't usually post here.  And, like, holy crap, Tumblr's fun!  There's a lot of cool stuff on there!  I'm hooked.  All the retro sci-fi I can handle... :wow:

Also, I'll be setting up shop in the artist alley for the Salt Lake City Comic-Con this coming September 24th-26th!  If you'll be at the show, head on over to get free bookmarks and sparkling conversation. ;p Word is this is supposed to be the second largest show after San Diego, which sounds bonkers.

Issue 6 of my comic is done and waiting for a release date, and issue 7 is well under way!  Also, all current issues are up on Comixology!…  I've also got some other stuff going on that I'll share more about later--lots of wackiness is ready to ensue!

As always, thanks again to everybody faving and commenting!  You guys rawk so hard.  Oh yeah, and check these fellow Deviants out, too.  They also rawk: :icondeimos-remus: :iconcatbyrne: :iconstargamerworld: :iconbws:

That's all for now!  End transmission.

Tough question: what's your favorite childhood toy line?

Hi Tom, I'd love to feature some of your work on my TMNT blog over on tumblr. I see you have an account on there, but there's only your TMNT Renaissance piece posted. Is this an account you're still using? (before I direct people to it!)
My blog is

Hello, Cat!  Thanks so much for wanting to feature some of my stuff!  I took a look at your blog and you've got some amazing pieces in there! :tmnt1: Yeah, sorry about that--I just started that account recently and then got really busy, so I haven't added anything since.  I do plan on getting back to it sometime soon! ^____^

Thanks for getting back to me! Great! so I'll be adding some of your work to it over the next few days. And I look forward to seeing your work on tumblr as well, whenever you have time again to post.
MurderousAutomaton Featured By Owner Sep 5, 2015
Awesome!  Thanks again, Cat!  That was the motivation I needed to start posting--and now I'm having a blast on Tumblr!  I'm going to try to post art on pretty regularly, if I can. :D

Hi, Kiley!  Likewise, sir!  You are a gentleman and a scholar.  ^____^  I hope you had as much fun at the show as I did! 

Definitely!  Let's keep in touch--I'm sure our paths will cross at another show soon. :D

Your art is great! I love the art deco robots. Actually, I saw you at ACE today and I acquired the Destroy All Humans from you. I kept thinking that your art was like this cool DA art deco artist and it turns out that's because you ARE that cool art deco deviant artist XD Thanks for the awesome print!
MurderousAutomaton Featured By Owner May 10, 2015
Hello there!  Thanks so much!  And thanks for the faves! ^___^ Ha, ha--that's awesome!  That happens to me a lot, too.  It's always cool to put a face to the people we follow online. :meow:

And if you fancy art deco, you've gotta see :iconstefanparis: and :iconrodolforever: 's work, if you haven't already--they are art deco geniuses! :omg: I'd love to meet them in person, too, but they live in different countries.  Maybe one of these days. ;p

My pleasure!  I'm glad you enjoyed the print!  I had a blast at the show--hope you did, too!  If they do it next year, I'll definitely be back. :D
