A SMACK! Halloween Series - BTTF x Ghostbusters

If you've been keeping score, you'd notice there wasn't any posts up for "SMACK! Sundays." Yeeeah, Sunday was a weird day for me as was the day after. An artistically life funk if you will. Well late at night I decided to do something about it. I drove to the nearest gas station, copped TWO Starbucks Doubleshots and was convinced that I'd make something artistic by Tuesday morning.

And then, I remember this Sunday was Halloween. And I remembered I don't have the funds or the resources to actually have a costume. And then...the art button on my brain clicked.

So all this week til Halloween, I will be doing a piece a day depicting myself dressed as various selections from movies. And what better way to start off by with two of my favorite movies: Back To The Future and Ghostbusters.
"Wait a minute, Doc. Ah... Are you telling me that you built a time machine... out of a DeLorean?"
“Ray, when someone asks you if you’re a god, you say “YES”!”


I decided to do a technique I've hardly ever done before (except a drunken night in college), where I sketched out everything in Sharpie pen and then did a light ink wash over some areas. And then of course the usual Smack magic of putting in Photoshop and going to town.

Oh and more for your viewing pleasures, here's a SMACK! SpeedComic featuring the process behind the Ghostbusters piece...



And now...The Couch K.O.
