Impressario, not Costermonger by Ohthehumanityplz Impressario, not Costermonger by Ohthehumanityplz
Here I go again combining Terwilliger with yet another comic icon. This time, it's Alice Coopers and Niel Gaiman's Mysterious Showman from the "Last Temptation".

Just to summerize, it's about this boy named Steven who is taken under the wing by the nameless Alice Cooper character to the Grand Guignol, where everything's free. Thus the showman explains to Steven what his life could be if he doesn't agree to stay with the Showman. A life where people end up in gangs, commit suicide for the reason they don't have a gun to rob a seven eleven or just to have a girlfriend. When Steven derides the offer, it becomes a psychological and spiritual game of cat-and-mouse of the Showman to find ways into explaining to the boy that he would never have to grow old and be a shadow of fear to haunt others. Of course, there's a happy ending, Steven wins, but the Showman will never stop until he wins.

I'm not sure why I wanted to draw Robert as the Cooper character, that hooked nose and long hair made me. Maybe it's even his verbosiveness and affable nature that makes me think of the connection.

The clothing by the way was hard to pick the colors for since I wasn't sure which Alice Cooper outfit it was based off of. In fact, the real problem is that it was in black and white, which lead to even more problems of picking colors.

Yes, those people in the back that are impaled like the victims of Vlad Dracule are actually based off the book. So, I know it's graphic, but I'm trying to be as faithful as I can to the original artist. The title itself is from the book.

For some reason, the only thing that's red in the book is the cover. Thanks, I'm glad you appreciate it. I was a little afraid about doing too much gore in this piece, but since the book is engourged with horror, it was fine with the piece.

Your welcome. And incase you want to make more drawings with gore I think alot of people will be ok with it. Because I think there are two types of gore pictures the ones that are just blood and guts and the ones that have symbolism and a deeper meaning. And if it has meaning then people will be happy. Kinda like fooly cooly some of the episodes were very gory but it explained how the main charactor was realizing the kid like world he grew up in was slowly going away.

I find it funny how people ignore the plot of FLCL and say it's just random when there's actually a story in there. The fact of how quiet some of the moments in the show makes me like it.

I think most people think theirs no plot because they don't go out and say what the plot is. They try to explain it through the charactors, so you really have to pay attention to what the charactors are saying.
But I find it funny how people say if you watch it you'er immature. Even thought some every mature adults watch it like the director of the avatar the last airbender. Who ordered the staff to buy FLCL and watch every single episode of it.

To tell you the truth, I find it more philosophical than the animated version of Naruto. I haven't read the manga version of FLCL yet, but I want to.

Agreed. I've also thought about buying it too but I've always wondered if the manga is anything like anime.

From what I hear, it's very different.
