Gotham Gallery: Bane by MurderousAutomaton
Gotham Gallery: Bane
...Did I post this already?  I could have sword I did, but it's not on here.  Weird.

Anyway, this is my interpretation of Bane, for my Gotham Gallery set of prints.  I though it'd be fun to incorporate some Dia de los Muertos imagery into his design.  Seemed fitting. :D

You can see the rest of the portraits here: murderousautomaton.deviantart.…
The City of Tomorrow by MurderousAutomaton
The City of Tomorrow
Convention season's right around the corner, so I wanted to start making some new prints!

I've had the itch once again for more art deco stuff, so I revisited The Tomorrowman, a character from the Americana storyline.  You can see his original design here back from 2010 The Tomorrowman.  Not much has changed in his design, but I wanted to refine some of his shapes and muscle structure.  

In the story, The City of Tomorrow is based on the 1939 New York World's Fair, so this poster itself is based on one from the fair:…

This Is Not a Magritte
Well, I've clearly fallen short of my goal to post more often. ;p Until I get more new stuff done, I'll post some more old stuff, so here's a robot poster from 2010!

Greetings, humans! I'm a robot trapped in a human's body. Someday my mechanical brethren will come to Earth to enslave mankind, but until then, I'm just gonna make some weird artwork.

Current Residence: Earth
Favourite genre of music: Hard rock/weird stuff
Favourite photographer: I'm not as familiar with photography as I should be, but i really like Ansel Adams
Favourite style of art: Art deco, German expressionism, film noir, anime, video game art
Operating System: Windows
Favourite cartoon character: Raphael, Snake-Eyes, Invader Zim, Dib, Filbert, Ren and Stimpy, Bender, Dr. John Zoidberg
Personal Quote: "Destroy all humans!"
Greetings, humans!

First off, sorry for the recent dA neglect!  My robot armies have been busy in other galaxies, plundering and squashing puny mortals.  You know how that goes.

Secondly (and not to make every point in this journal an apology...), for anyone attending Wizard World Chicago who was going to stop by my table, sorry I wasn't able to make it!  Turns out my publisher didn't attend, so I had no booth space.

HOWEVER, I will be signing comics, selling artwork and giving free high-fives Wednesday, September 17th at Graham Crackers Comics in DeKalb, IL.  I'll be there from noon till probably about 8:00, and I'll have plenty of free bookmarks and postcards on hand to give away.  Hope to see you there!  Check their site out:… If you've never been, the store is fantastic!

We'll be featuring the recently released issue #4 of The Revival at the signing, and you can see more on Hound Comics' website:… And, as always, thanks to everybody faving my art and watching me!  I'm still trying to find time to thank you all personally. :D

Over and out,

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

Hello there! Haven't heard from you in awhile. How have you been? :D
MurderousAutomaton Featured By Owner Mar 8, 2015
Hello, sir!  Wow, sorry I went MIA again!  I guess I've fallen well short of my goal to post a Mythos character every week, huh? ;p I had a bunch of deadlines up till the last weekend in February, then it was off to Las Vegas for a toy convention!  Since getting back I've had a brand new set of urgent, last-minute deadlines, which is always fun. :D How have you been?  What's new?  I can't believe it's March already. :omg:

I've been busy juggling a bunch of hobbies while on an easy final semester. Haven't been able to get back to healing yet but I wanna get to it eventually ^^;

Nice!  What kinds of hobbies are you into?  It's always nice to have extra time during a semester--that's a rarity! :D
