Creepazoids: Horizon by MurderousAutomaton Creepazoids: Horizon by MurderousAutomaton
Couldn't fit the entire title on this one!  I never realized dA had limits to deviation titles. :D

Anyway, man, I had fun with this one!  Been chipping away at it for quite a while.  I thought '70s sci-fi would make a fun theme (especially focusing on those great covers for sci-fi novellas), and oddly enough, I found myself feeling nostalgic for it, despite the fact that I didn't exist in the '70s!  I think part of it was that in the early '80s, there were still plenty of carry-over '70s things around, so I was still exposed to it, and it reminds me of when I was super young.  It's pretty cosmic, man. ;p Anyway, this set made for some really fun references!

I hear Kavinsky music playing in the background. Maybe a bit of ToyTree as well.

I recommend looking up Kavinsky's Nightcall and ToyTree's work for the OST of STRAFE.

These are all awesome, I especially appreciate the wonder of Xanadon't!

Ha, ha!  Thanks!  She was originally going to be a more straightforward disco/Xanadu reference, but I thought it'd be more fun to throw in some Bowie.  I guess she kind of represents a somewhat wider swath of '70s music now. :D

It works together quite well! I am curious, what's Blockhead referencing?

Thank you!  I tried to make him look puppet-like, as a reference to the Krofft Brothers' shows. :D

Oh okay! The name "Lovekrofft" makes a lot more sense now. :)

Ha, ha!  Exactly.  It's a pretty obscure reference, but you know me and pun names. ;p

Ha, ha!  Thank you!  These were a lot of fun--gave me a chance to work a bit outside my comfort zone (they can't all be '90s, after all... ;p )

Nice choice!  She's one of my favorites, too, along with Majishen, Cen-Star and Crontok. :D

That's a cool theme to do! This really quite feels like a nostalgia trip. I think Crontok is my favorite of these, though they're all really great. :D

Sorry we haven't talked much btw. Hope your month is well so far! :)

Thank you, sir!  It was really fun to play around with this set!  Such a different aesthetic than the other sets so far. :D

Yeah, sorry about that!  Hopefully I'll have a little time to chat this weekend.  I know I say that every weekend, but I'll try to make the time! ^_____^
