Bombshells: Red by MurderousAutomaton Bombshells: Red by MurderousAutomaton
Issue 10 of The Revival is done!  Let's celebrate with another pinup!  ...or, as much of a pinup as Red would allow. ;p

This will be a new print for C2E2 this spring!  Can't wait!  I also did one for Rainbow Brite back in 2014, if you wanna check it out: Bombshells: Rainbow

'80s toys for the win! :XD:

I love her legs.  They look so muscular and she looks so stoic and badass!  Awesome work!

Thank you so much! ^_____^ The world they live in is harsh, so she has to be harsher, and hopefully the way I draw her reflects it.  I'm having a lot of fun developing her character as the story goes on! :la:

I'm from Russia and I want to say that this inscription is just a collection of letters without meaning. What did you really mean? :o (Eek)

Hi, GeroVort!  It’s actually English, using a font called "Cyberia", which swaps out English letters for Russian letters that look similar.  It says “Better Red than dead”, a play on the American anti-Soviet propaganda of the Cold War era. :D

“Better Red than dead”
Hmm ... This phrase in Russian will look like this: "ЛУЧШЕ КРАСНЫЙ, ЧЕМ МЁРТВЫЙ" - so it will be correct.  Bookdiva

Oh, cool!  Thank you for the translation!  Maybe I'll do two versions.  I'm planning on selling this as a print at shows, so I'll keep it in English for that, since my fanbase is mostly American and I want them to be able to read it.  ^____^

Is this a character from the new Metro game coming out?! She seems perfect to be in that universe.

Ha, ha!  I'm not too familiar with those games, but it sounds like she'd fit right in.  She might even enjoy herself! :XD:

Oh man those creatures are absolutely gruesome. I'd pay to see Red go against a Demon or maybe some Spiderbugs. I'll let you decide, here's a link on 'em:

Wow, those ARE gruesome!  They'd definitely be a handful for Red, but I think she'd enjoy the challenge. :D

I bet she could handle them. Especially if the lettering in her name applies to anything since they reside in nuclear remnants of Russia in the game.

Ha, ha!  Nice!  Well, she's not really Russian herself, but a lot of the imagery I use for the bad guys in the comic resembles Soviet Russia, to play off of the Cold War during the '80s.  A lot of the pinup art I do for it has that Soviet feel to it, since it kind of permeates their world.  But anyway, yeah!  Whatever their nature, I think it'd be in her wheelhouse.  In issue 2 of the comic, she takes on a giant Glow Worm, mutated from nuclear bomb testing. :D

Sounds like an interesting world where only tough fight like mad to survive. The Cold War is an aspect of this game as well. It's basically a what if the Cold War actually had dire consequences, where the superpowers at the time launched nukes at each other. The aftermath is just people trying to make it in the Inferno that is their world now. If she can take on a giant glow worm I'm pretty sure she can handle anyting that the Metro universe can offer.

Oh wow, that's a cool concept for the game!  I might have to check that out! :la: Ha, ha!  That's true!  Although worms have softer outsides than those critters do... but I guess Red's hard on the outside and inside. :XD:

Hooray! Glad to hear this is still going wow. How many issues are planned? :D

Thanks, man!  I'm still having a blast with it!  It'll probably be around 20+ issues!  It's a much longer story than I probably should have embarked on for my first comic!  So far it's taking much longer to complete than expected... :XD:

Well that does sound long, but that also sounds like fun! :D Got any plans after it's done? :)

Totally!  It's been a lot of fun so far!  I hope to speed up production at some point, somehow, so it doesn't take another 5-6 years to finish. Stare 

Ha, ha!  I DO have more plans, as a matter of fact! :D We've talked about what I want to do with Sai, and I also really want to produce something with the Americana storyline.  I'm hoping The Revival might gain some steam and possibly open doors to other opportunities.  We'll see how it goes!  Oh yeah, and I want the Creepazoids to be an actual toy line. :XD: I'd also love to try to get an indie video game off the ground, like a fighting game or beat'em up, but that'd be way in the future after these other projects are done. :la:

That all sounds great! And that's a lot of ideas you have planned too! :D Just try to focus on one thing at a time though; don't want to be overwhelmed after all, right? =P

Ha, ha!  That's true!  I'm mainly focused on The Revival for now, but I'm also tinkering with Americana in the background, when I have a chance.  And of course Creepazoids are easy to work on, since I can just draw one or two a week without too much trouble.  Eventually I get a set done. :D

I really want to be able to devote more time to these projects, though, in a professional context.  I guess I'll just keep at it and see where it goes! :la:

Thank you, sir! ^____^ Yeah!  That's her trusty gun-axe--a long-barreled gun with axe blades bolted to the body.  It makes no sense whatsoever, but it looks cool! :XD: You can get a better look at it here: Shortcake and Kit
