My Friends Are Djs #8 - Scourage of Space

This one goes out to all the djs I know who had to fight through hell and back for what they love and to get to where they are now. This piece was made in response to the Hollywood cliche outlook of how the dj life and road success is like. From my first hand experiences with djs, I very much know the cliche is pure fantasy and there are many trials and tribulations that can last for years on the road to success....I felt so passionate I decided to draw a metaphor outlining that. I did not stop until it completed which was in the wee hours of the mourning.

This is the WIP pencil Sketch

and the Final Painted Comic

The titular "Scourage of Space" is so far the hardest, most complex character to be conceive. It took several tries to make it look "right" and meant to be a demonic force representing adversity faced by djs in their journey. In comic-universe, The Scourage is a horrible, massive alien monster born from the darkest shadows of Mars, that constantly tormented Martians society for eons both emotionally and physically. Huge, strong, immortal, and seemingly appears-reappears like a ghost attacking entire cities. The scary part being, Scourage is intelligent and seeks to cause torment for sport & pleasure. Design-wise, Scourage is recycled from an old sketch idea book of a "space demon" which combines insect, centaur and cobra traits with alien colours. The name "Scourage" is accidental misspelling of "Scourge" to highlight his tormenting pleasure. 

Fortunately for us, the battle is just a flash back lesson being given to Breezey (fairy) and Bitz (Cat-Bot Dj) by the Tv Heads....here Poco is showing off the Daft Punk/Cazzette influences of their design cues. Despite the "happy-expression" on Alto's face as he's explaining the "Scourage"..he's still mentally tormented by that monster. In the flash back....Alto and Poco are spinning a shield made of pure gravity and sound energy to repulse the attacks from Scourage.
