This is a piece of artwork I did while at the CNX-05 convention. There's nothing quite like drawing tight bodied gals in skimpy costumes carrying firearms. It's a little indulgence of mine really. A reward I give to myself or a little pick-me-up when I'm feeling blue. Just sit down with a piece of paper and draw some gun-totin', big breasted, long legged, teen girls with lots of fire power.
Anyways I was drawing this at the convention and there were these guys there filming a documentary on comics and comic artists and comic fans and general comicness and stuff. They seemed to enjoy me because I tells ya, when the camera is on ol' Uncle Ghastly I go into full on HAM mode. Outta my way attention whores, let me show you how a pro does it. I was hamming it up like you wouldn't believe. Were they laughing with me or at me. Real attention whores DON'T CARE!
Seriously though they seemed to enjoy hanging out and filming me and while I was drawing this the guy asked me who the character was. Damned if I new. I suck at naming characters. That's why so many characters in Ghastly's Ghastly Comic are just named things like "Bunny Boy" or "Cosplay Girl". I kind of nickname people like that in real life too.
"Hey look! There goes 'Can't Tune A Guitar' Girl, and she's with BiPolar Boy. I haven't seen them in ages."
So like I said, he asks me who she was and I stammered... er... I don't know. What do you want to name her? And he says "AK-47". And I thought, "You know, that would work". So I've decided to call her Super Mekka Battle Girl AK47. What's her story? Haven't gotten that far yet.
I think someday going to take all the gun bunnies I've ever drawn and throw them all together in a comic series that's about absolutely nothing but gun bunnies running around in skimpy outfits blowing the every loving crap out of anything and everything.
It should be noted that even though this girl is named AK47, the weapon she's holding isn't an AK47. It's a "pulled from my ass" special. I love drawing completely imaginary items of complex machinery. It's like drawing tentacle monsters, you can't draw a machine wrong if it's imaginary. Ask me to draw a real AK-47 and I'll fuck it up every time. Ask me just to draw a rifle and I'll be able to make something that looks like it might be real, but isn't.
