Dr. Horrible!

Have you all seen Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog? I love, love, love it! Neil Patrick Harris is absolutely perfect as the evil Dr. Horrible. The songs are stuck in my head...in a good way. I just had to sit down and doodle the characters. Naturally Dr. Horrible, the star of the show, was the first. I wanted him to be sorta goofy like a Warner Bros cartoon mad scientist. Those mad scientists always have giant craniums and big black eyebrows. Mr. Harris doesn't actually have the big black eyebrows.

I love's Dr. Horrible too. I love your rendition and can't wait for more.

Danny said...

Very nice! NPH is ....wait for it.... legennnndary!

Can't wait to see your Captain Hammer renditon!

Also J, any chance of seeing renditions for some of the new America Gladiators?

Jon - Thanks man. I tried to keep the colors muted for an atmosphere of evil.

Gusty - Thanks. I'm working on Penny now.

Danny - Captain Hammer's gonna be fun. But also difficult because Eric Canete did a fantastic Captain Hammer for the Dark Horse online comic strip. I have to ignore his take and interpret my own.

Y'know, I missed the new season of American Gladiators. I just don't watch that much tv in the summer...nice weather keeps me outdoors. I heard there were some new Gladiators that I should check out! Maybe when the third season starts I'll get back into it.

best,

Awesome!!

I am so into Dr Horrible. I can't get the songs out of my head. The song that ends the second act kills me! It's so good!

I love Neil Patrick Harris. He's had such a great come-back lately. But mostly it's been self-parody. That's why I really love Dr Horrible because it actually was a great performance that had nothing to do with making fun of himself.

I also saw the Buffy the Vampire Slayer musical episode for the first time last week (I've been watching the whole series from the beginning) and it was also amazing. More musical sci-fi!

Gah! This is awesome!
Sorry I'm so late to the party.
Hope we see your Captain Hammer soon.. wait, that sounds wrong.. your drawing of Captain Hammer.

Johnny B - Thanks, guy.

Rachelle - I also can't get the songs out of my head...mostly because I listen to the soundtrack constantly. Can't wait for the actual real DVD and soundtrack to come out. Fave lyric: "Go ahead and laugh, yeah I'm a funny guy."

Jeremy - Cool!

Chris Haley - I've just finished inking Penny...you'll see my Captain Hammer soon enough :)

But first, I had to do another Dr. Horrible drawing to accompany my take on Penny. Update coming soon.

best,
j.
