Metal Sonic by MurderousAutomaton
Metal Sonic
This is an old one from a few years ago when I did my "Sega vs Capcom" series for Sega Addicts:… The idea was to draw Sega characters in Capcom's style, as if they were in a vs fighting game.  If only, right? :hmm:

Anyway, Metal Sonic's probably my favorite Sonic character, so I had to make sure he looked kinda stylish.  You can see a group shot here, with fake pixelation! Sega vs Capcom

More comic pages!  I wanted to share this one, since it shows the horrible "harvesting" process for the Cabbage Heads (based on the Cabbage Patch Kids).  That's The Princess overseeing the operation--can you guess what 80's toy she's based on?  There are a couple other references to 80's toys hidden in this page, too!

For those unfamiliar with the comic and want to see more, check out these links:

Enjoy the geekiness! ;p
The Revival: Issue #5 by MurderousAutomaton
The Revival: Issue #5
Issue 5!  Pluggin' along, slow but sure. :D

For those unfamiliar with the comic, that's Red (based on Strawberry Shortcake) and Rainbow (based on Rainbow Brite) about to kick some ass in a desert battle against a bunch of Cabbage Heads (based on Cabbage Patch Kids--not pictured).  Why?  Because I'm a geek. ;p

Greetings, humans! I'm a robot trapped in a human's body. Someday my mechanical bretheren 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?

Hi, Matthew!  Good to see you on here!  Nice meeting you, too!  Glad you enjoyed the comics. ^____^ I'm still plugging away on issue 5!

Okay, I am in love with your art. Keep up the great work! Look forward to seeing what else you submit!

Hi Mister Murderous Automaton,
I just wanted to say I've got my hands on an advance copy of the "Dieselpunk Retrofutures Of The All-American Art Deco Years" upcoming book and I can't tell you how happy and proud I am to see us both featured in that same new opus. I was the one who directed Ian from Graffito Books to you and your great artwork and that was most certainly one of the best things I did this year!
Best from Paris,

Hello, Stefan!

Wonderful!  I can't wait to see the book!  It's certainly an honor to be a part of such a cool project, especially with such talented artists as yourself!  I wasn't aware that you had recommended me--thanks so much!  I really appreciate it!  They told me you were part of the book, but I didn't know you had brought me in! ^___^ I had also recommended our good friend rodolforever, but they said he was already included!  I had a feeling you directed them to his work as well. :D Thanks again, sir!  I'm so excited to see the book!

My pleasure, Tom. To make an art book with graphics about "The Retrofutures Of The All American Art Deco Years" without you would have been a complete nonsense! 
MurderousAutomaton Featured By Owner Oct 31, 2014
Ha, ha!  Likewise, sir!  And you're too kind.  ^______^

Hey there. Still been very busy? :)
MurderousAutomaton Featured By Owner Sep 2, 2014
Howdy, sir!  Yeah, still trying to keep up.  The project we're working on just got kicked up a notch, so it's gonna be a busy month!  I've also got a signing for my comic at a comic book store coming up soon, so that'll be fun! :la: How have you been?  Has the new semester started?
