The more Real Ghostbusters by alexmax The more Real Ghostbusters by alexmax
"They catch the ghosts who wont stay dead."

I tried to make an image that was equal parts the movie and the cartoon, but in the end it is way closer to the look of the cartoon. Actually, the original idea was to make it a "gritty" ghostbusters piece, and I ended up with a dozen super-colorful ghosts. So, mark of fail to me.

Even your mark of fail is still awesome! And I like how Spengler and Zeddemore respectively resemble Steven Colbert and Black Dynamite. Lol!

Ha! Awesome, I can see what you mean, that was NOT intentional at all.

Thanks for the comment.

I think this piece is astonishing. You gave Peter a little mullet even.

Thank you!

A mullet?! NOoOoOoooo...! I meant it to be just long hair. :lol: It's like Superman, he never had a "mullet", just long hair. ;)

No idea why I haven't tried for another Ghostbusters piece. Time constraints, I guess, maybe I haven't come up with an idea good enough to put on paper. I should correct that... eventually.

I don't know, the neon ghosts work very well for me. Though Winston looks a bit too much like Fred Williamson (Shaft)...

Ha! That's true he kinda does look like Shaft! That makes Winston even cooler, right? :)

Thank you. It is my intention to give another shot at drawing the GBs, but I seem to be too busy all the time :(. I guess I shouldn't complain that I have work.

Hah! Means a lot coming from you, sir. This is the only "serious" Ghostbusters piece I've ever done. The proton packs, traps, and the rest of the tech gear, always make me turn away from trying to go beyond lousy doodles. Don't think I'd be able to draw a decent Ecto-1... should give it a try sometime, maybe.

Thank you, I can't decide which I like more: the first movie or the cartoon... hmmm, seriously, I like the movie more, but the cartoon is awesome too. In a way, this is my "take" on the characters if I were to do a comic, and can't use the actors' likenesses (kinda like all the Ghostbusters comics happen to do).

I don't know! But I'm glad you stumbled upon it and liked it! You know your Ghostbusters stuff. I was meaning to do another of these, but instead of using generic ghosts, I wanted to have them face off against some classic ghosts from the cartoon (now that I have the dvd's), but after taking a look at your gallery I feel discouraged. heheheh. :-P

Your fan film looks like fun!

I really don't know if I can do a poster for you right now, because work has me really busy. Been working even on weekends for the past 3 weeks.

If it's something that can wait, maybe I can arrange something.
