Gregory Dazzlepalms


Not sure why this picture exists.  I had sat down last night with the full intention of making some Game of Thrones fan art.  But my brain drew this instead.  Sometimes you just need to paint stuff...they're not great ideas, they don't make sense, but you're compelled to draw them.  Better get them out of the system so they don't keep showing up at the worst times, like when you're trying to get a book cover done, or work on comic idea.  That would be super inconvenient.

I did recently watch Rebecca Sugar's preview of Steven Universe, so that explains the gem.

It's amazing how "accidentally awesome" happens. Great stuff.

I love it! I feel like I need to get more random with my drawings and character designs, so this is very inspiring :)

Have you played Robot Unicorn Attack 2? Because of that game, I have visions like this in my head all the time now, accompanied by dreamy 80s synth pop.

I just watched that same pilot and thought it was hilarious. Great stuff. I love those happy accidents in art.

I am horribly embarrassed to say I have not played robot unicorn in either of its incarnations. That and not playing Blood Dragon are my two greatest gaming regrets at this point in time. Forgive me.

Cool Cool.. Cory, you better do a comic! I would snatch that thing up in a jiffy. However you make it though, do the comic like the Europeans do theirs... Big, Hardbound, and with rough sketches and artwork in the back of the book. How's Disney treating you? I am so happy to hear that you are doing well.

Love your work.

No no...I get how you went from the "the Red Wedding" to Gregory Dazzlepalms. I see what you did there

I can not wait to see what you do with Thrones though. Sooo much to pick from.
