DRAW ME: Rainbow Blight 2 by PaulSizer DRAW ME: Rainbow Blight 2 by PaulSizer
After I researched and found out the REAL Rainbow Blight dresses much cooler than in my original image, I decided to go back and change her costume. So now she's RAINBOW BLIGHT 2: ELECTRIC ANIME PUNKER BOOGALOO GIRL 2.
Better? Worse? Let me know what you think.

Cool new design--the fact that you've gotten that from bits and pieces of Rainbow's costumes makes the both of you all the cooler. :D

Yup, a true visual/musical mash-up.

It's so cool, I can actually see pieces of my different costumes you used to make this ;) What's funny is the first thing I noticed is the skirt. In real life that red skirt was teeny tiny. In hindsight, I should've expected that since I bought the outfit in some sleazy sex shop on 42nd street!

Of course, I didn't realize that half the junk in my trunk was going to be visible until the night of the show O_O Since it was a sGhoulgirl theme I decided to remedy that by emblazoning my bottom with a big A+ in sharpy marker! You know what they say, necessity is the mother of invention!

bwahahahaha!! Thankfully no one got any shots, but something about little pleated skirts makes EVERYONE think it's okay to slap your butt! Good thing I'm always equipped to strike back! ;)

See? That's the kind of innovation that impresses the hell out of me. In all of those pictures I saw, you had that look like "I don't care what you can see, just keep your @#$%% hands to yourself!"
Plus, drawing on your own bootie is mondo impressive! A+ to you!

J-rock and punk rock go seamlessly one with another...

By the way, I saw her band's site: wow. It's intensely brilliant stuff, how long has she been at it formally? Like a few years? I hope it's a few years.
I'm seriously concerned, just how does one attain that sort of excellence but through years of grueling entoilment to their craft?

This is going to bug me....hmm.

I'm going to guess she's been at it, by that I mean performing concerts at clubs, for aaaaabooooutuh...I don't know, thhhhreeee years?


I like the drawing, you're really good man. Wow.

You can rest easy! I've been playing music for more than 3 times the years that you guessed ;) (although not all those years were with Hate in the Box!) It takes a while to figure out how to perform, record, and write music, let alone how to design album covers and costumes O_O

And you're absolutely right, some of the best shows are the small ones. We've had the craziest times dressed like pirates performing at our favorite tiny tiki bar here in NY or grungin' it up in some dive bar in Virginia. We don't have to do such small shows anymore, but every once in a while we do anyway, just for kicks. Thanks for the nice words about my music ^_^

Gottuh say, I freaked out for a split second when it finally registered it was your name on my screen: in no conceived circumstance did I ever think you'd actually write me up...it's a little exciting to say the least. Heh.

Um, yeah, well, you're welcome: I thought your stuff was great, in fact I'm sort of irked that there's no record store where I'm at so I can pick up your band's album.
Do you design your album covers yourself? Wait, you mentioned clothes, soooo I'm going to presume you do the clothes for the shows yourself too. Now that is incontestably cool. I'm really into clothes design myself, but not for personal wear, it's always for a character in a book.


One last question: would you listen to someone who was inspired by John Lenon, Jim Morrison, Pink Floyd, Smashing Pumpkins, Greenday, and Radiohead?

Haha, I am the patron saint of writing people back. It's kinda my thing ;)

You can totally pick up our album online at our very own store and we take everything from paypal to money orders, to your eternal human soul! I mean, uh... credit cards and stuff.

Yes, so far I've designed all our album covers myself this is the last one A thankless task but it's kinda cool to know so many people have my art in their homes. I d.i.y. a lot of my costumes for stage shows. Usually they're made by taking a piece of clothing that's already constructed and radically reconfiguring it via scissors, safety pins and my trusty grommet gun. I have sewn entire costumes by hand but it's a pain in the ass since I sew by hand. I think it's cool that you design clothes for your characters.

As far as your last question, it doesn't sound like what I'd usually listen to, but I'm always willing to try something at least once ;)

Thanks for the CD information, and the compliment: I only sort of…I only sort of design my character’s clothes, like it works usually that I’ll see something or a particular aspect of a ensemble, or whatever, and I’ll paint It different, like give it a different color; and then I usually either make the jacket longer or more elaborate, or shorter. It all depends. My main character, Jak Grinsen, a.k.a. The Mor, alias Death’s Wolf__his jacket design was pulled from several sources, Trigun, Hellsing, Hellboy, and Bladerunner (originally he just wore a variation of Deckard’s jacket). I either ask a designer’s permission because what they made is exactly what I want, or I do D.I.Y. and just tweak it to my specific tastes.


Um. This is the sort of that music they play: it’s sort of a cantankerous poignant dream-psycho punk rock
(green day) [link] [link] , [link] [link] (there’s like four smashing pumpkin songs here; it’s a huge influence to the lead vocalist) [link] , [link] [link] [link] [link] (The Doors) [link] [link] [link]
(the Beatles) [link] [link] [link] [link]
(Radio head) [link]
(this is what this singer acts like a lot) [link]

I’m really very sorry about all the links, and I don’t know if any of that’s stuff that you would like and I’m just wasting your time__but, I really would like your opinion on how it all sort of sounds in your head, as an actual musician.
It’s for this story I’m writing called Gumtree Monody: it’s about a punk rock band that finds itself in a mental clinic: it’s heavily inspired, the story, of the character’s from ‘The Doom Patroll’. Like there’s a guy, the second guitarist, who has multiple personalities from dissociation, after incest with his mother when he was twelve: and there’s a guy who dresses and looks like John Lenon, but he’s actually more based off the Violent Femmes, The Sex Pistols, and Joey Ramone. He’s a cyber priest for a religious collective page on the internet, as well he’s also an lsd addict and has obsessive compulsive disorder. The bassist suffers from chronic anxiety, because his girlfriend is a masochistic hose beast. He’s inspired by Iggy Pop and a bunch of pub rock bands, and Dick Dale and Delltones (specifically I made him to the songs of ‘Ghosts on the Highway’ and ‘Miserlou’;).
What I love about them is they’re like a punk rock version of the Beatles: they’re all amazingly talented, can play several instruments, have outstanding insight into gritty cantankerous euphony__but they’re all so messed up it’s ludicrous. Morti, the lead singer, he’s the one with the vsion, really it’s more of a mission: he secretly suffers from a mutated form of syphallus, which he contracted when he was a sophomore in highschool, but went dormant in his body: he takes pills but they make him bipolar and ferociously spitefull and violent to his fiancé, Evaline Sallow(note the comic book-esque names)__in short, when he takes them he doesn’t love her, because he’s so enraged by his condition, how it’s devouring his sanity at a slow agonizing crawl. So he formulated a band, because he knew if he wanted to love her, he had to surrender to insanity__now he’s increasingly turning to a benevolent mania to make sense of his last ambition: he wants to kill himself before the syphallus does.
He doesn’t want to live without love. Does that sound corny? It’s supposed to be morbidly poignant.
Does this all seem too much? I mean I researched bands and things, trying to find diseased and mental trauma that would coordinate well with eachother. Like I gave Reejis, the drummer, obsessive compulsive disorder like Joey Ramone; I gave Morti syphallus; and I gave Sig a problem that actually is biographical from something that happened to my brother.

This was a longass correspondence...for what it's worth I'm sorry. Lol.

I don't know very much about Rainbow and Hate In The Box, but I'd say they've been at it a few years, and that they bust their ass practicing anddoing small crappy shows before they land the bigger ones.

Yah, first crack at the first crack,

Paul the type and colors still make my eyes want to bleed;). the costuming of her is great and puts a new spin on her. the orange sneaks are divine. The type looks like it has been mugged, lucky type.

Did you use the same colors as last time? It looks that way to me. If so, how did you transfer the colors over?

A question for you, when I do coloring on my projects, is it okay to use the magic wand, or do I have to master the damn lasso? A freind of mine years ago said that the only way to mask stuff was with the lasso, a skill that I have yet to acquire.

also do you use paper in you initial work up or do you go direct to digital? Sorry I just really don't have many others to ask these sorts of questions to.

well it is late

I did use the same colors, in that I re-inked the figure in MangaStudio, brought the new figure over to my existing PhotoShop file, colored and shaded it, then hid the original figure's layer, and used the original color layers in this new figure.

I use the Magic Wand tool for nearly all my coloring. I color directly on my line work, so as long as I have closed spaces and shapes, I usually do most of my flatting with the Paint Bucket tool (set to DARKEN so it doesn't screw with the black lines), and then use the Magic Wand for selecting those flat colors to blend/shade, highlight/whatever.
