Are You Dead Yet? by Steelpengu Are You Dead Yet? by Steelpengu
It's Ash. Fighting great, old Cthulhu. I'm not totally happy with this, but if I hate to waste the effort. So I'm posting it anyway. Sometimes, even if I don't like it someone else will. If I posted everything that I thought was just right, then I wouldn't post at all, you know? I'm already hard at work on another version of this. Ash is a complete cartoon of himself. Partially intentional, but not quite the way I wanted. I'm pretty happy with the great old one, himself, though. I totally copped out on the background. Which won't happen in the next drawing, I hope. I had wanted to see how the stark black sky would work. It does and it doesn't. Yeah, I redesigned Ash a little. But I think I portrayed the design something crappy. I should ink the design sketches so you get a full idea of just what the hell I did. But, yeah. Next time will be better, so don't be surprised if I post another Ash vs. Cthulhu pic right after this.

I wanted to make a short comic out of it, create something of an ending to the Evil Dead saga out of it. An older Ash is much more interesting than the eternally youthful, spritely figure that pervades pop culture. I'm sorry, but Bruce isn't young anymore and I don't think the character is either. I should do a portrait of this Ash, so you get the full weight of his age and his grittyness, like Dark Knight Returns Ash. Hmm... Frank Miller Evil Dead... now that's something to ponder. Not the best pairing of the material, but interesting nonetheless. Ash would be like ten times more masculinely insecure and macho.

For those who came in late... this is a continuation of an idea that starts here: [link] But since that picture is like three years of off and on work, I wanted something that was strictly of the now in my artistic ventures.

With all the hits this pic is suddenly getting, I really need to get around to redoing it like I had planned to. And Ash would win. Easy. He's been hanging out with the Necronomicon so long, Cthulhu is practically his choir director.

Are you thinking about making another drawing of Ash fighting against another Lovecraftian deity?

I might redo this one since it's such a crappy pic. Heh. But that's not a bad idea, having him tackle the whole pantheon of Old Ones.

The only thing it needs is coloring. How about Ash fighting against Dagon? What do you think about that?

I hope Ash wins, because he's the last hope for humanity in this drawing. After all, I belive Abdul Al-Azrad predicted him in the Necronomicon in Evil Dead II

yeah, it would suck if we all died. Then again, with Ash in charge I don't think we're in the best hands either! XD

Didn't take full time to read over the discription as I'm busy, but I think you may be happy to know that sometime in teh Army of Darkness comic book series, Ash takes on and kills the Elder Gods. Including Cthulhu. AT least thats what I've heard. I think it's in Army of Darkness vs. The Re-Animator. Great pic by the way

Yeah, I saw a promo pic of Ash tackling a Cthulhu-oid beasty a while back. This is actually a rather failed rehash of a pic in the back of my gallery that I did four years ago. I liked the sound of Army vs. Reanimator, but I hate that they switch between art teams mid book. It looks sloppy and slapdash.

Non the less, I hope to personally get a copy sometime. The idea of Ash vs. Herbert West is just awsome. You see the Marvel Zombies vs. Army of Darkness pics yet? Scary stuff man. Non the less, picks not as bad as you think, it's got it's own unique look for those two beings.
