Shown above is a sketch that is a long time coming, having been stuck in my mind since my first "Reign of Maxx" pinup done for Max Toy Co's "LADY MAXX" comicbook, where the young hot-headed "Captain Maxx" takes on his
Seen below this is a flashback-look at the pin-up page in the indie comicbook - circa 2012 - and tis my "first published" work too! I am proud of that, a wish come true, even if no one picked up the print I made of the drawing :p ... (which you can still purchase here online now - comes with the comicbook too! *nudge-nudge*).
#throwbackthursday ...that time I did a pin-up page in @maxtoyco's #LadyMaxx indie comicbook - circa 2012 - and tis my "first published" work too! I am proud of that, a wish come true, even if no one picked up the print I made of the drawing :p ... #hengdraw #toysrevilart #isellthis (this was snapped off my screen from the TOYSREVIL big cartel sales page - heh) #TBT
And seen below are a few more sketches, re-designing Mark Nagata's Captain Maxx suit, which I think now is overdoing it (actually reminds me of "Commander Steel" from DC Comics lol), and even Eyezon - giving him a bionic arm (probably lost ruing the battle which cost Maxx's father's life too…).
All this is done in "fun" and interest on my end, with no tangible destination planned, at this point in time, except for my own interests :)
Exploring costuming options for my re-interpretation of Mark Nagata's characters Captain Maxx and Eyezon. Both Maxx and his older sister Lady Maxx lost their father/teacher in a galactic incident, and Eyezon has since taken it upon himself to be their new sensei - something which Lady does not care for, but Maxx has somewhat embraced, and constantly taunts and torments the trying-hard-to-be-zen Eyezon! It was either a diaper or a skirt lah, to cover Eyezon's privates hahahaha #hengdraw #toysrevilart
No one bothered to ask if Eyezon was "blind" since he has so many eyes (each of them have different characteristics by the way) on his "head", shoulder and even arm ... But he sure is not going to say or admit anything, would he!? Some say he lost his sight(s) in the same battle which also cost Maxx Senior's death too ... All this of course is over-scheming on my part in my re-interpretation of Mark Nagata's character creations, and is not to be taken as factual, besides my own imaginations haha #toysrevilart #hengdraw #ReignofMaxx
Mark Nagata's #CaptainMaxx on my mind ... More costume redesign considerations, thinking about the headpiece / helmet now... Can't seem to let go hahahaha ... Not too sure about having a "Maxx Family Crest" tho ... Too much like Superman's clan symbol... Hhhmmm but I need a symbol to add in the mystery for my reimagining in #ReignofMaxx ...#hengdraw #toysrevilart
