CaliGhoula by TeeJay87
CaliGhoula by TeeJay87


Work inspired by image published by one of my pen friends

Here you have average inhabitant of Vaulted Den known as dA, in other words one of many Californians, who have spent too much time in the sun near damaged nuclear power plant while reading silly books. Such harmful agents caused him to undergo mutation crippling his mind and flesh into zombie-like state. Notice he even couldn't pin his badges in proper way to the harness he's wearing.

His name comes from combination of words "California" and "ghoul", thus "CaliGhoula". His design is mostly based on Fallout New Vegas feral ghouls

Of course the depicted mutant is not supposed to resemble anyone particular. His similarity to living people is not intended.

SaltwaterWOW!  Fantastic concept, design and execution.
Really well done!  :)

The pun on "CaliGhoula" is very well chosen.
Caligula is generally depicted as an insane tyrant and a cruel monster with all kinds of perversities...

TeeJay87Thanks, especially for the trash rat badge you allowed to use. :)

Original Roman emperor named Caligula was indeed insane, either due to traumas he experienced in childhood or because he enjoyed drinking sour wine from lead chalices. Despite they claim to be opposing him, many spoilt brats (including those from sunny Cali) behave in suspiciously similar way to the emperor - they're insane, cruel, inhuman, bloodthirsty, demanding power and they enjoy talking in public about topics commonly considered as taboo.

Thus I picked the pun, to underline relationship between Caligula, monsters from Fallout series and Californian leftists.

SaltwaterI am delighted to see that you have used your trash rat badge in such a fun and relevant way.    :D

BTW, You can use any of my resources without asking of course.  ;-)

And you can use any of my artworks, designs and characters if you want too.

Some of my characters have a little story to go with them, some have a nationality and an occupation,
but most of them don't even have a name.

If you ever chose to use one of them,
then it is up to you:
you can reshape them to your heart's desire.

TeeJay87Thanks, I'll remember that. Feel free to use my works as well, especially in case you'd need references for:

- army uniforms (Russian, Polish and US Army), since I use as reference trustworthy sources;

- landscapes (such as the Fallout-styled vault )

- weapons I draw in pictures with characters;

- last but not least, those rarely-seen characters I draw (from "Garfield and Friends" and similar cartoons), since from what I've noticed, only few draw them here and even in the dAen of CaliGhoulas. ;)

SaltwaterThank you for your kindness.

And it is true that your army uniforms and weapons are very detailed and well documented.  :D

As for the big cats, you have managed to create very unique characters,
they look very lively and they have personality and individuality,
and actually they look much better than the original ones, if I may dare to say so.  ;-)

TeeJay87I'm mostly familiar with Polish, German and Russian/Soviet armies uniforms - as someone, who feels bounds with his homeland, I feel obliged to distinguish our troops from the former occupants. ;)

Deep research helped me in learning the differences between American, British and French uniform patterns, though I've only drawn the first sets from mentioned overalls. Which doesn't mean I'm not going to give a try in the future. :)

To be honest, only Stan and Ian are genuinely my original creations; the rest of them were borrowed from couple of TV shows and modified, some minimally (Pussycats, Kitty, Callie and Igor), some were deeply modified (Irina) to match the concepts I've developed for own comics.

Pussycats (Penny and Mona) are good examples of such modification - apart from human-like bodies, they got their personalities extended:

- they treat their male just like they did Garfield in cartoon ;

- while their approach foes is opposite way , , &

TeeJay87No wonder they call those mutants "ghouls" with their dead-looking eyes, burnt skin, claws and the way they move - almost like zombies from "The House of the Dead" movie and games. ;)

TeeJay87 you who are very good at drawing cats, that such a request?
How about designing some of the characters of the Thundercats! Lion, Cheetara, Pantro, Tigra ....

TeeJay87 on September 25, 2015, 12:17:58 PM

TeeJay87 on
TeeJay87Thanks, but I don't take requests.

If you happen to be interested in art trade, I'm open for deals.

TeeJay87I'd draw the Thundercats for couple of characters from "Garfield and Friends":

- Penelope Pussycat

- Mona

- Kitty

You'd have to wait for my work, because I have difficult exams in October and November - thus I'm predicting that my part of the art trade would be ready for sure after 5th November.

cavaloaladoNo problem! It was only a suggestion even!
