Earthworm Jim by BrendanCorris Earthworm Jim by BrendanCorris
If you didn't think Earthworm Jim was one of the greatest games of the 90s, you were an idiot. The perfect blend of totally unique and interested characters and landscapes, excellent and challenging platforming, and a gut-busting sense of humor (and games are RARELY successfully funny), EWJ was a masterpiece. And being that Doug TenNapel's art (EWJ most of all) inspired my style so much, it's only natural that I should do a tribute to everyone's favorite soil-munching annelid.
I'm incredibly pleased with the individual drawings, however, the placement came out quite terrible. The main focus is obscured and most of Queen Slug-For-A-Butt is going off the page (as well as covering Psycrow). Also, some of the details on Jim are a little off since it was drawn quickly. Oh well, I still love the way it turned out. I will post each step individually on my art blog soon and link it here. Check back in the near future.
In picture are - Professor Monkey-For-A-Head, Evil the Cat, Major Mucus, Chuck, Queen Pulsating, Bloated, Festering, Sweaty, Pus-filled, Malformed, Slug-for-a-Butt, Princess What's-Her-Name (one of gaming's sexiest females ever, in my opinion), Snott, Bob the Killer Goldfish and #4, Psycrow, Peter Puppy, and, of coarse, Earthworm Jim.
Enjoy.

I have seen many Earthworm Jim drawings but this is just what really define him.

~To start the colors use it this picture are extremely accurate, especially the colors used for Earthworm Jim.
The shading is excellent and sets the the mood just right.
~All of His greatest Foes are here including his long term nemesis Psycrow.
~The express of all the faces for amazing and close to the real thing.

~The minor flaws I see is the redness in Prof.Monkey Butt's cheeks and the fact that his ear look like a butterfly wing.
~Also in the very tip of "The evil Cat" mouth it not Completely colored the same as the rest if it, but it not that noticeable since you have to zoom up close to see it.

~I want be more then happy to give a 100/100 If it wasn't for the red cheek of Prof.Monkey butt.

~Other then that Its Perfect :D

I love Earthworm Jim. For some reason he thinks the game sucks. Have you heard of Skullmonkeys BTW

So totally off the wall with the designs man; I don't think you can get any closer to capturing the essence of what the games were about than this. Absolutely spectacular; definitely worth a favorite, in my book. :thumbsup:
